I expect you are all enjoying the milder weather we are having…. Spring is on it’s way at last. A warm weekend is promised this weekend.
Did any of you enjoy the Drama “Strike”, I thought it was brilliant, I didn’t realize there had been a previous two series, no surprise when I looked through On Demand and found them.
Strike is a Detective Drama based on the Novels by Robert Galbraith ( J.K. Rowling’s Pen Name ).
The main character is a private investigator Cormoran Strike.
Well worth watching.
A few films that I’ve watched in the past week are…..
Conspiracy, Darkest Hour, Hampstead and Hidden Figures. All very different, you may have guest from previous posts that I like a variety of Films and Dramas of all different subjects.
Stars Kenneth Branagh and many more actors that you will be familiar with.
It’s a dramatic recreation of the Wannsee Conference where the Nazi Final Solution phase of the Holocaust was devised. It’s quite shocking how things were decided so matter of fact.
Stars Gary Oldman
The true story that begins on the eve of World War 2
Within days of becoming Prime Minister of Great Britain, Winston Churchill must face one of his most difficult and defining trials. Does he negotiate with Nazi Germany or does he stand firm and fight for liberty and freedom of a nation.
With his own Party plotting against him, Churchill must withstand his Darkest Hour and attempt to change the course of world history.
Gary Oldman deserved his Oscar for this role.
Stars, Diane Keaton and Brendan Gleeson.
An American Widow living an uneventful existence in London’s idyllic village of Hampstead meets a local recluse who lives totally different from her in a hut at the edge of the forest.
This is a lovely film.

This is the amazing untold story of the brilliant African-American women working at NASA as the brains behind one of the greatest operations n history: The launch of astronaut John Glenn into orbit.
