Documentary 

Jesse Hughes, Josh Homme

A very emotional documentary covering the terrorist attack at the Bataclan venue in Paris in which 89 people were killed. The documentary covers the band returning to Paris for a gig at the Olympia, the effect it has had on the band and the other survivors.

Easy Money (1983)

Rodney Dangerfield, Joe Pesci, Geraldine Fitzgerald, Candice Azzara, Tom Noonan & Jennifer Jason Leigh

Directed by: James Signorelli (Police Academy 2, Elvira)

Platform: Netflix 

IMDB: 6.3/10, RT: 60% Fresh

Runtime: 95 Minutes (Watched: 40 Minutes)

Synopsis: To inherit his mother-in-law's colossal fortune, a hard-living gambling addict must change his unhealthy ways before they get the best of him.

Verdict: I enjoyed the first part of the film, some slapstick and one liners and anytime Pesci was on screen but I was bored around the 40 minute mark.

Eddie The Eagle (2015)

Inspired by the life of Eddie Edwards and his entry into the 1988 Winter Olympics

Taron Egerton, Hugh Jackman, Jo Hartley, Keith Edwards, Mark Benton, Jim Broadbent & Christopher Walken

Directed by: Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman)

Platform: Netflix 

IMDB: 7.4/10, RT: 82% Fresh

Runtime: 105 Minutes (Watched: all of it)

Synopsis: The story of Eddie Edwards, the notoriously tenacious British underdog ski jumper who charmed the world at the 1988 Winter Olympics.

Verdict: Very enjoyable feel good drama, Edwards himself said the film is 90% made up so take it as an inspiration rather than being based upon.

Eli (2019) - A Netflix original movie, only released 2 days ago, can't get fresher than that!

Kelly Reilly, Charlie Shotwell, Max Martini, Lili Taylor, Sadie Sink

Directed by: Ciaran Foy (Sinister 2)

Platform: Netflix 

IMDB: 5.9/10, RT: 40% Rotten

Runtime: 97 Minutes (Watched: all of it)

Synopsis: A boy receiving treatment for his auto-immune disorder discovers that the house he's living in isn't as safe as he thought.

Verdict: Better then your average supernatural haunted house movie with a few twists in the tale I thought was quite cool. Less about the scares and more about the story, I enjoyed it.

Elizabeth Harvest (2018)

Abby Lee, Ciaran Hinds, Carla Gugino, Matthew Beard & Dylan Baker

Written & Directed by: Sebastian Gutierrez

Platform: Netflix 

IMDB: 5.7/10, RT: 47% Rotten

Runtime: 105 Minutes (Watched: all of it)

Synopsis: Newlywed Elizabeth (Lee) arrives with her brilliant scientist husband Henry (Hinds) to his magnificent estate, where he wows her with lavish dinners and a dazzling tour of the property. The house staff Claire (Gugino) and Oliver (Beard) treat her differently but she can't shake the feeling something is off. Henry explains that everything in his world now belongs to her, all is for her to play in - all except for a locked-off room he forbids her from entering. When he goes away for business, Elizabeth decides to investigate.

Verdict: A modern telling of Frankenstein, that is if Dr Frankenstein was the monster that was created. I enjoyed the first hour but after that it didn't really know where to go.
