    Watched Tom Hanks new film on Netflix . News of the World .
    Was ok. Bit slow in parts but Hanks was good as he is more often than not.

    It’s normal Hanks fare now
    Character led with a “real” story

    agree. The original Dragon Tattoo films were great - so fudging disturbing. I really couldn’t see the point of making, or indeed then watching, Americanised remakes. So never did.

    The American ones are ok, just not as good
    They stand alone as solid films, but the originals are brilliant
    I’ve been waiting for the American remake of Troll Hunter which I doubt is gonna happen now

    That’s the one I mentioned above. Sometimes called Untouchable too - not a direct translation from the french I’d presume.

    But a great film. Proper laughed out loud multiple times - it’s really well played.

    Yup. Same. No point as those originals were top drawer.
    Another from a few years ago that was outstanding? Border.

    Yeah, Dogtooth is really good if you like his style. I enjoyed The Favourite as well.

    The tunnel scene and the fire extinguisher scenes are not family viewing.

    A couple of light hearted French movies

    Heartbreaker
    The perfect plan

    And for something more serious - Tell no one.

    Miracle in cell no 7 Turkish version is excellent. It is a copy of a Korean flick of the same name which I haven't seen. On Netlfix and worth a watch. Might make you cry you soft bastards.

    And the ending left you waiting for the next series(assuming there’s will be one).
