    The End of the Tour. Film about author David Foster Wallace starring Jason Segel & Jesse Eisenberg, I wasn't sure what to expect and I've never actually read any of Wallace's books, but it was a touching drama that deals with depression, has it's funny moments too. 8.5/10

    Lots of other big stars making up the smaller roles.
    Ditto. But much respect when you read about the making of the movie.

    One of my favourite scenes

    Northern Soul.
    Very 1970's and grim "up North" but this film really captures the cult music and energy.

    20th Century Women

    Good an honest depiction of a 15yr old growing up in the late 1970s in a house full of feminists and a hippy. It was definitely interesting with some great acting by Annette Benning & co, but I'm not sure it hung together perfectly. 7/10

    I've never really thought he was that good an actor, until i saw him in two totally contrasting roles;

    as Calvin Candie (Racist Slave trader) in Django Unchained - which is a superb film (possibly Tarrantino's finest)

    and

    as Jordan Belfort (City Trader) in Wolf of Wall Street, which is hilarious in places.

    Chi-raq. Didn't really know what to expect from this other than it was a Spike Lee joint, featured John Cusack and was about the gun problems in America. I didn't realise it was going to be a musical of sorts, about women withholding sex to get the gangs to put down their guns. It was kind of bats hit crazy, and I'm not entirely sure it worked but I loved that all the dialogue was rapped, and Samuel L. Jackson was the absolute standout. Well worth a watch. 8/10

    Leo is great in Shutter Island as well.

    Leo was never better than in What's Eating Gilbert Grape. Can't stand Wolf of WS.

    Patriots Day - 9/10 - Brilliant, a fantastic tribute to those who worked hard to save the lives of those injured and those who worked to find and locate the bombers. Some of the scenes I doubted as I don't really remember them happening but on researching it was all accurate. Mark Wahlberg was excellent and from what I heard fought tooth and nail to get the part being a Boston boy and the incident being close to his heart. 100% worth a watch! Very touching at the end.

    Saw Julius Caesar (1953)
    Marlon Brando (Actor), James Mason (Actor), Joseph L. Mankiewicz

    earlier (for the first time in a while). James Mason was so much better than Brando (and Guilgud too).
