Bohemian Rhapsody (2018)
After the critics had their say on this I was reluctant to see it but my brother wanted to go for his birthday so we went. It's a brilliant film - fun, uplifting, exciting and emotional, just like Queen. There isn't a weak link right the way through and Rami Malek is sensational. Definitely my film of the year.
Star Trek: Discovery (2017)
Fears are over - it's really good
I've been a Star Trek fan for almost all of my life now (that's since the late seventies - so long ago I can't even remember the year) so I approached this new incarnation of Star Trek with excitement mingled with a lot of trepidation. I needn't have worried - it's really good. I'm going to stick my neck out and put myself in the firing line and say that, of all the Star Trek series from The Next Generation onwards this is the one that comes closest to the feel of the original series. It's got just the right balance of action-adventure, thoughtfulness, characterization and drama. And it's well acted and written. Well done to everyone involved. If it continues like this then I'll be a fan.
Superb documentary with exciting new revelations
I have now watched this excellent BBC documentary twice and the excitement doesn't diminish with a second viewing. Veteran presenter and interviewer Jeremy Paxman follows the story of Bernadette Murphy, a British woman living in French Provence, as she turns detective and tries to find out exactly what happened on the evening that Vincent Van Gogh cut off his own ear. The story is well and lucidly told, the excitement and interest building as revelations are made about the circumstances behind Van Gogh's self- mutilation, exactly who he gave his severed ear to and why, and the exact nature of the injury he inflicted on himself. One of the most amazing pieces of research by an amateur, fascinating and moving in equal measure and highly recommended.
