What movies to watch this weekend?

In the Cinema:

The 15:17 to Paris
This Clint Eastwood directed true life tale has been gained some negative reviews from the critics but has been viewed more favourably by audiences as he takes the bold step of casting the real life individuals involved in this feature. Surely worth seeing for that fact alone!


Zero Dark Thirty (Netflix)
Kathryn Bigelow directs this brilliantly crafted, tense and gripping dramatisation of the hunt for Osama Bin Laden that works largely to it's attention to detail and a strong central performance from Jessica Chastain. Highly recommended!

On Telly

Spy (Channel 4 Saturday 11th February 21:00)
Melissa McCarthy is in fine form in this Paul Feig directed spy spoof from 2015 which enjoys it's network TV premiere this weekend but it's undoubtedly Jason Statham that steals the show (now that's a line I thought I'd never write!!) walking away with every scene he's in. A lot of fun!
