I do like a list. Here’s what has been watched in April 2017.
If I didn’t blooming work I would love to do more posts, so there’s a few pending in this list. Didn’t get so many films in this month as TV season has started. What with the excellent fourth series of Line Of Duty being binged watched in one evening! There has also been the start of season 3 of my favourite series Better Call Saul. Plus there’s a few guilty pleasures like Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Designated Survivor.
21 films this month and a total of 99 since the start of this blog.
The Odd Angry Shot (1979) Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 6.8
Enjoyable Aussie Vietnam film. Will do a post about it soon.
Fury (2014) Wolfman Rating 7.5 – IMDB Rating 7.6
Watched at the cinema the first time but caught it again so to watch with my son.
The Last of Sheila (1973) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.4
James Coburn invites a bunch of “friends” for a fun time! Post coming soon.
The Seven Five (2014) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.6
Courtesy of Netflix. Documentary on police corruption on the streets of Brooklyn. It’s an excellent watch.
Hell in the Pacific (1968) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.4
Another if I had time I would love to do a post on. Lee Marvin and Toshiro Mifune battle it out on an island.
Money Movers (1978) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 6.5
Another Australian film hits all the good spots in this great take on heist. Damn work getting in the way, I wanna do a write up!
Rogue One (2016) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.9
Saw this on cinema release and then again on Blu-ray. It has a few issues but generally I loved it especially that end sequence.
Salvador (1986) Wolfman Rating 7 – IMDB Rating 7.5
James Woods and Jim Belushi ride around in brutal El Salvador in the 80’s in this film based on a true story from director Oliver Stone.
Catch-22 (1970) Wolfman Rating 9 – IMDB Rating 7.2
Alan Arkin tries to get certified insane during World War II, so he can stop flying missions. Not sure how I hadn’t seen this before.
Get the Gringo (2012) Wolfman Rating 7.5 – IMDB Rating 7.0
Netflix watch with my son. So much better than the rubbish Blood Father. Mel Gibson channels the good stuff in this film also known in the UK by the ridiculous stupid title of “How I Spend My Summer Vacation”.
May has started well with some bonkers brilliant films that helped go along with all the beer, bourbon and popcorn. Thanks for reading and if there’s any in this month’s viewing selection you liked now or back in the day, feel free to let me know.
