Disagree with what is being said about 1917. I thought it was very good and have seen it a few times.

Saw it Saturday, thought it was average at best.  Somewhat boring 2/4

Week before saw “The Gentlemen” 4/4, thought it was incredibly well written .

Thought there would be more action on here given the lockdown!!

The gentlemen - Your typical Guy Ritchie film gangsters, craziness, laughs, stars I enjoyed it but probably not going to pick up many awards 7.5/10 (Farrell is a great comic actor)

Knives Out - Also very enjoyable Daniel Craig’s southern accent is brilliant it’s a very cheesy murder mystery with another all star cast 8/10

Hoping to watch Us tomorrow night enjoyed Get Out so hoping Peele’s second is as good.

Personally, I'm struggling to watch much as the whole situation is stressing me.
I've 6 kids in the house and am working from home. Trying to keep them entertained (and fed) at least in some part means loads of kids movies.

Any recommendations for kids movies? We've been through a lot of them. we watched the Sonic movie and Onward over the last week.
Both are good shows.

6 kids?!?! Have you only purchased a TV?  ;D

Get Youtube on - kids can watch whatever they want and it will keep them entertained

Its worth a watch - you need to suspend reality while watching it.

Ending pissed me off a bit

As mentioned tbrick the Lemony Snicket series is a good job. Each episode between 45mins-1hr but the kids enjoy it even if it is quite dark for a kids show!!

There's a film documentary online for free viewing , Homeland: Iraq Year Zero  by the Iraq film maker Abbas Fahdel,
part 1   https://vimeo.com/123389912
part 2   https://vimeo.com/123265527
He's resident in France but made it home in the days before the 2003 invasion. it was a last chance to film life and living in Iraq before it was destroyed forever, through the eyes of his family preparing for a bleak unknown. The 2nd part documents the  destruction/ looting of a thousands of years old culture and the context for the subsequent descent to chaos.
It's long,  longer than Gone With the Wind. It's GWTW plus Ben Hur long.


There's more than just Netflix.
