And that again is the problem. How could I possibly have forgotten the Godfather trilogy? Of course, a trilogy is not a single film either. You see the difficulty?

Just looked at my IMDb ratings for the Godfather trilogy and it went 10 > 9 > 8

Current go-to would be The Accountant. I REALLY want the sequel to happen.

 

I still haven't seen it - Matt Damon's expression just puts me off haha

 

Don't get that joke as Matt Damon is not in it. Ben Affleck is the star.

 

Though I have enjoyed most of Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's body of work

Yes, certainly ET, also Close Encounters and Schindler's List. And many, many others that momentarily slip the mind. How can there be just one?

 

 

 

 

Those are all ones I could also watch over and over

Two movies which I though were pretty good.

 

The First Man and Sully.

 

The first man gave a bit of an insight into the trials and tribulations of being an astronaut and the family of an astronaut. I thought the scene the night before the mission where it was pretty obvious the Armstrong and his wife realised his chances of coming home were perhaps less than 50%. Pretty ballsy call to go on a mission like that.

 

I thought Tom Hanks did an excellent job in portraying Chesley Sullenberger. Also over all the movie did a pretty good job of portraying the actual events without distorting or over dramatising them. I was impressed.

Indiana Jones is fun entertainment but hardly great film-making. I just can't suspend disbelief when a medieval knight stuck in a cave for hundreds of years starts speaking perfect English. Miracles are one thing but this just takes it too far.
