Blackkklansman and Sacha are all about intolerance. The skill with which SBC exposes the stupidity of Americans is courageous, although the yanks aren't his only target.

Spike Lee's Jungle Fever is one of the greatest films in history. A must see for anyone who hasn't.

I loved Bohemian Rhapsody

A Star is Born not so much tho Gaga was great

Nae Pasaran is my favourite film of the year so far - catch it if you can - true story of scottish workers who refused to repair the engines from the Chilean air force after Pinochet's coup - it really is a cracking wee film and true testimony to solidarity  :thumbsup:

Mile 22, really disliked it, thought it was very poor to be honest.

Ballad Of Buster Scruggs ( the Coen Brothers did this ) was pretty enjoyable as you'd expect.

State of Play, nearly 10 years old now and hadn't seen it in sometime but appeared on our netflix.  As good as I remembered it.  Not always a Russell Crowe fan but he was great in this.

Cold In July, caught in on BBC iPlayer, thought it was fucking tremendous, well worth a watch.

Like if you're sexually attracted to someone you don't know you can just grab their arse, be genuinely shocked that they didn't appreciate it but then 30 seconds later live happily ever after?

Nae sure it quite tells the whole story but what movie adaptation does? Still found it a thoroughly enjoyable movie and thought it was superbly acted by all involved.
