The Damned United. Only took me 8 years to see this one. The 44 days that Brian Clough was in charge of dirty Leeds and of course his rivalry with Don Revie and relationship with his assistant Peter Taylor. Did he really do that interview with Don Revie after having been sacked? Incendiary stuff. Compelling viewing too. Not sure if it translates to those outside footy circles though?

Tremendous film and a decent insight as well. There were a lot of good managers at the time when tackles were tackles. Of course, Celtic beat that dirty Leeds Utd team in 1970.

Wow that was ace!

7 weeks isn't even long enough to find the local butchers shop! Brilliant, but I'm not sure if that makes sense. Brian Clough is a fascinating character with his outspokenness yet also in that interview at least quite a sensitive side that doesn't feel like he has to forcefully make his point like Don Revie was and always interested in what the other guy has to say.

Yes, a good one, though having watched the extra's on the dvd I thought it would have benefitted from including many of those short extra scenes.

The book is worth reading, too.

Revie and Clough grew up only a few streets apart in Middlesbrough apparently, though Revie was 6 years older.

Paddington 2. Old fashioned and good natured and feel good. Great cast too

Up there. Interesting concept of people having to prove themself after dying in some kind of bardo setup to get to heaven. But, I think it failed in the main.

The Maze Runner. Teenage Dystopian fare. Quite good actually

Star Wars - The Last Jedi

Absolutely brilliant. The best since the very first episode blew us away!

Went back to see it for a 2nd time this afternoon. Not sure if I've ever done that with a film before. Yes I could pick holes in it and say how I'd have preferred certain bits to go, but in the main it held my attention for the full 2 and a half hours and was a worthy entrant in the Star Wars Canon
