Anyone seen Greyhound yet? https://www.imdb.com/title/tt6048922/ saw a trailer so have it on my watch list for one night this week, I do love Tom Hanks.
Its on my list for one night this week, really looking forward to watching it
Watched it last night, not too sure if I’m honest, Hanks is very good and there are some decent moments of suspense, but just seemed to be missing something, something I can’t quite put my finger on.

Just seen this. More holes than..............pretty much any other film I've seen 😱. Had the potential to be quite good but needed a better script editor, director, basically someone to point out the enormous plot holes. Ah well, nothing else was on so not much lost.
I’d second that opinion. Was really looking forward to it and just felt a bit let down.

Watched The Greyhound last night. Definitely worth a watch!
Has Tom Hanks ever made a bad film?

Old Guard Action film with Charlize Theron on Netflix. Bit weird about immortals who do die but then suddenly heal and carry on as normal except eventually they stop being immortal and have a final death if it's their time..
Saw it pop up and was interested - so will give it a watch

The lack of a story? It’s like they watched Das Boot and had to put the Jerry’s back in their can. ‘We won the God damn war! Get Hanks, get it done, get it out!!,

Watched it last night, was an ok bit of nonsense, light relief from all the murder drama's we've been watching. But even the mrs Wedge asked if it was Highlander, suggesting the CIA guy was one of the "watchers"....

SPOILER ALERT - Old Guard
Watched this last night, quite enjoyable and a good cast but gaping plot holes that could have been easily addressed - i.e. how do they cross borders? - seen in an old russian drug runners 'Dakota' flying secretly over Afghanistan then cut to suddenly they're outside Paris? How did Theron's character get into the US Afghan military base to remove the newbie immortal, just casually walking along in one of the most secure military installations you could get? The Asian lady immortal that was 500 years on the seabed in an iron maiden thingy and had gone insane was seen at the end credits looking and acting pretty normally - was sure some part of the film would involve her rescue but no, annoying.
Seemed set up for a sequel.
