I thought Belfast was very good.

Especially as I wasn't expecting much after the feedback from this place.

I watched it pretty soon after it was released, so maybe had higher expectations given the media talk about it. Sometimes movies automatically get credit for simply being focused on key historical events, irrelevant of how good the actual movie is.

Actually watched two Northern Ireland films over the past few years that I thought were brilliant, and more enjoyable than Belfast and Banshees. One was Bad Day for the Cut and the other was Nightride.

Bad day for the Cut is very good alright.

The Swimmers on Netflix is worth a watch.

Watched it on Sat myself. Thoroughly enjoyed it from start to finish, while the wife uttered "what the f**k is this" 30 mins into the show. Seems to be marmite

Banshees just got 8 or 9 oscar nominations. I haven't seen it but it can't be that bad with all those nominations.

Been many a dung film to get a lot of nominations, Mad Max being a recent one that jumps out.
