You might be thinking about Very Bad Things with Cameron Diaz

Any red flags for watching with sub-10-year-old kids?

We watched Planes, Trains and Automobiles on Saturday, which they adored. But the car rental scene crashed through the room like a wrecking ball. The kids thought it was hilarious. We were horrified (and amused).

We watched 'The Dig' yesterday. It is a lovely film about the excavation of the Sutton Hoo. It is a lovely slow paced film. A very pleasant antidote to 2021.

There's a scene in Seven Psychopaths like this.

I’ve seen Seven Psychopaths and Very Bad Things, so there’s also a good chance I’m getting both films smooshed into one in my brain.

Cheers, suspect they can manage that.

Edit - and happy birthday!

I watched Ocean's Eight at the weekend. I liked it. Cate Blanchet wore the heck out of some suits.

Thanks!

There's also some comedy violence and a scary bit which is probably on a par with a mediocre Doctor Who episode or perhaps when the hero meets the dragon at a panto. Doesn't last long.

The main risk is your kids deciding they want to win Eurovision some day.

Thank you! Yeah we started Doctor Who a couple of weeks ago - the Eccleston ones. They both love it, but they both seemed a bit stressed out by the end of Aliens of London part 1, so we haven't returned to it. A pal has already warned me off Who from Tenant onwards, due in large part to the Cybermen.

Greenland. I'm more selfish than you. No, I'm more selfish than you! Some tension, but mostly dull.

Escape From Pretoria: In arpetheid South Africa, two young white men are imprisoned for fighting the system. Then plot their escape.

It's really, really, good, tense, and rocks along the running time.

Added to the family film list.

Incidentally to we watched Ghostbusters last weekend. Aykroyd gets sucked off by a ghost? WTF?

We watched Save The Last Dance because I was in the mood for Julia Stiles and bought it on DVD (£1 including P&P, fact fans). It’s not great, but dancing Julia Stiles, yay!

Watched Gone in 60 Seconds. Not the Nicholas Cage version, the 1974 original. I did not know there was a 1974 original before today!

The first hour or so is awful, the acting is bad, the dialogue is so bad (what they are saying is bad, but also often it was recorded later and really badly dubbed in). However, the last 40 minutes or so are amazing! All the budget went on this car chase. It's worth sitting through the first hour just for the climax!

Until he came on screen the film was merely awful... It went downhill soon after.

Yup, it’s very good. The end is implausible though.

If you haven’t seen it, watch The Last Seduction.
