    Bridge on the River Kwai. Still one of the best war films ever made. 10/10.

    I watched a slow burn drama last night called The Drop. Mainly because Gandolfini was in it and I'm a huge of of his.

    Good film actually...I'd give it 7/10. My wife gave it a 2 and nodded off but she's an 'instant gravy' film watcher.

    (Spoiler alert)
    Great 'twist' in the sense that the quiet and really mild mannered guy is the real hard guy...and they did well to avoid one seeing it coming till towards the end.

    Great ending when the Christmas mob kills Mr Potter with Rosebud!

    Saw Arrival last night. This is a hard movie to rate as I found it compelling, especially at the beginning. But at the end it sort of goes off the rails and ends up in a ditch.

    This seems to be a consistent gripe of mine with modern films. Writers are able to come up with a decent idea for a story, but they lack the skill to pull it all together in a satisfying package.

    The acting is good and the visuals, while sparse, are also well done. The acting is believable. It's just the ending that fouls things up.

    This review pretty much sums it up (spoiler alert).

    I'll say 7.0/10

    Watched the 2014 "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes" a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was very engrossing and well done. Good character development and story including the "evolved" apes eventually showing the same moral weaknesses as man. I give it a strong 8/10. Prompted me to to watch the original Planet of the Apes which I believe is the greatest Sci-Fi movie of all time. 10/10.
