I do like a list. Here’s what has been watched in February 2017.
With my Wolfy rating next to the IMDB one. I try to do my rating before I see the IMDB ones. They are surprisingly close, bar a few, that either blew my mind or that I enjoyed on fun factor alone.
26 films this month and a total of 55 since the start of this blog.
Quatermass and the Pit AKA Five Million Years to Earth (1967) – Wolfman Rating 8 – IMDB Rating 7.1 One of my all time favorites. Seen many times. Always time to fit it in for a rewatch.
Eddie the Eagle (2016) – Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 7.4
Great family entertainment on Netflix. Very enjoyable.

Oh my god this was bad! Mel Gibson is old man Martin Riggs, he is pretty good to be fair but everything else!

Mel Gibson directs. I really enjoyed the beginning half but it just went gung ho big time style.
