For those not yet watching they're apparently all now streaming on the HBO site.

The Wall - Roger Waters (2015)

Impressive and depressing at the same time.
Difficult to watch. And surprisingly the sound
wasn't that spectacular. The cut scenes while
touching would have been best either before
the concert or after. Not during as it ruins the
flow.

10 Cloverfield Lane

A little scary in places. And it did
make me jump a few times.

Fathers & Daughters (Russel Crowe)

Not exactly a feel good movie.

Batman: The Killing Joke

Wow, Batman has grown up.
Won't spoil it for anyone, but
I didn't like the ending.

The Magnificent Seven (Denzel Washington)


For me Westerns aren't usually favorites anymore. I think
you need someone larger than life to play the lead. An actor
like John Wayne or Clint Eastwood comes to mind. Maybe
I've become too old to enjoy the genre.

Denzel Washington is one of my most favorite movie actors
of current. And he does a decent job in this movie. But there
are too many cliches. I'd go through them but there are too
many to list. Plus I don't want to spoil it for anyone that's
interested.

Well okay, just one. The unending supply of bullets. Still it's
not a bad movie. The sound was very good I must say.

During this holidays I've watched:

1) Brave
First Disney movie. I liked it, I liked the ancient scottish setting and the lack of the classic prince-princess Disney romance. I appreciated that it was centered around familial love and in particular the mother-daughter relationship. Also I really loved the jokes and gags that concerned men and their kilts. And the bears.

2) Rapunzel
Second Disney movie. I actually liked it a little less than the previous one even if it is generally considered superior. I have to say that the horse was one of the best and funniest Disney characters I've ever seen.

3) The Nightmare Before Christmas
Third Disney movie and also my traditional family Christmas watch. Obviously I love it and almost everyone has seen it, but I'm still amazed by how well this movie has aged, it doesn't seem to have almost the same age as me.

4) Bridge of Spies
I couldn't watch it from the start because of an error of my dear old father, but I could see that it was truly a beautiful movie. Tom Hanks did an amazing job in this role but from what I've seen the movie depended all from him and his character. I expected more from the historical description of the setting, but maybe it's because I only saw the second half.

5) Wreck-it Ralph
Fourth and last Disney movie, at least for now. Not bad but during the first part it wasn't remarkable and it didn't become truly consistently funny and engaging until the second half, when he entered the "Sugar Rush" game. However the heart-warming and not so predictable end redeemed the first part of the movie.

Finally saw Rogue One today. It's such a shame the Star Wars prequel trilogy wasn't made in the same vein as this film; much more in keeping with the style of the original film. It makes me yearn for a complete remake of the prequels (sorry, Mr Lucas).
Princess Leia's appearance at the end was made even more poignant following Carrie Fisher's passing- I really welled up.
Overall I think I actually prefer Rogue One to The Force Awakens; A good job by the relatively inexperienced director Gareth Edwards- he should be considered as a director for future Star Wars films.

1. Rogue One - liked it but didn't love
2. Manchester By The Sea - overrated, sort of liked it but would not want to set through it again
3. Fences - overrated, sort of liked it but would not want to set through it again
