Bird Box on Netflix.Should have been brilliant,given the cast,but turns out it's just a bit pants. Hoped for an improvement when Tom Hollander turned up,but he's a bit wasted really.

Mandy - Classic weird '80s sci-fi /cult/ drug shit
After a gap of a great many years I finally got around to rewatching Local Hero again. What a charming and delightful film. A very young Peter Capaldi.
The Beguiled (2017 and 1971)
A couple of weeks ago I watched Sofia Coppola's new adaptation and it made me curious to go back and watch the 1971 Don Siegel version with Clint Eastwood, which I hadn't seen for decades.
There's not a huge amount of difference in the plot so I'd imagine they're both fairly faithful to the book. Both are quite good, I wouldn't say one's better than the other. The new version is certainly more arty and beautiful to look at but the '70s film feels more gritty and sexy, I think it tells the story more effectively.
I watched a bit of Burlesque last night with Cher and Christina Aguilera ( they were in the film, not watching it with me). Wow, that's some piece of crap.
I Kill Giants (on Netflix).I was expecting it to be a bit Buffy, but it was quite A Monster Calls.
