Acts Of Vengeance on Netflix.

The kind of mildly diverting action, revenge flick that would of starred Jean-Claude Van Damme or Dolph Lundgren back in the 80's, but instead here has Antonio Banderas avenging the murder of his wife and child.

Some fairly well staged and choreographed fight scenes and a bulked up Karl Urban who gets to utter the line "creeps" being the few things to recommend it.

Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Wow. Absolute gem of a film. Frances McDormand, Sam Rockwell and Woody Harrelson knock it out of the park. I haven't been as impressed with a screenplay treating such dark material so very lightly, and with so much easy, natural humour since Fargo.

Highly recommended!

It's a deft fillum, all right. As I recall, the only time it comes close to condoning anyone's actions is Mildred's firebombing the cop shop.
Not sure if pervert or cheesecake expert.

Sing.

Was hopeful for this thanks to the involvement of Garth Jennings, who I like a lot. Unfortunately, the offbeat sensibilities and boundless visual imagination present in his classic music video output are almost entirely absent in Sing, which is about as broad and bland an animated feature as you could imagine. The soundtrack is largely on the nose with very few surprising choices - and anything remotely interesting gets cut off within a few seconds in maddening ADHD fashion, and sad to say the humour is incredibly weak, and I can't imagine anything in it amusing anyone over the age of 8.

And the heroic effort of will it took to stop myself from posting that exact comment is wasted...
