Like most people I love a good movie, with the loss of Xtravsion Its a case of having to rely on Sky, Cinema or good old fashioned downloads!

But of course there is also a lot of junk out there, and a lot of films that can pass us by. So how about we have a movie review thread?

Anyone can take part, just recommend a movie for others to view, it doesn't have to be new film, you can recommend old classics too. The only rules is that we give an honest review and not clutter the place with junk.

Ok, its a movie with a cat on the cover but dont let that scare you away. This is not a kids film.

I came across this movie by chance and it is quite surprisingly funny. It's a fun generic comedy film with a generic plot but because of the characters and the how stupid the premise is makes the film good but not great. It's over the top but in a good way, the chemistry of the leads is spot on,

Yes,it's not a great film of course but it's not terrible. It's funny but sometimes it can be unfunny,cheesy or corny.But because is a well executed and ridiculously funny film.

If you just want a movie that you can chill out to with a few laughs then I recommend this movie.

The Accountant (2016) starring Ben Affleck, Anna Kendrick and J.K. Simmons.

A forgettable (by the next day, tops) standard fare crime drama, which has been done to death at this stage. It's a really deeply silly film which takes itself quite seriously despite the plot being totally over the top. An austic maths savant accountant washes money for some naughty people and gets caught up in some shady goings-on with a tech firm. He also has kung-fu and sharp shooting skills that would make Rambo vomit with envy. There is one real schmaltzy theme to the film which doesn't go well with the ultra violence. And worst of all while John Lithgow has a small part, it is CRIMINALLY underused. That's just unforgivable.
