7.5/10 - Eye in the Sky - Netflix - US\UK military operation to take out a 'Terrorist' in Kenya, the story focuses on the legal and ethical aspects when they decide to kill innocent people.

I really enjoyed it, 90 minute film too.
It was far across the sea,
When the devil got a hold of me,
He wouldn't set me free,
So he kept me soul for ransom.

This the one with Helen mirren and the guy who played Jessie pinkman in breaking bad?

That's not a bad watch, as you say it's to the point and not over long.

Air - Prime

Ben Affleck directed film starring Matt Damon (as a basketball scout guru), Affleck (Phil Knight), Viola David and Jason Bateman. All about Nikes pursuit of Michael Jordan to be a brand ambassador and wear their gear in the 80s. 

Didnt think there was enough in this story for a movie and whilst the plot is fairly straightforward, "company vying with other large brands for a soon to be superstar", it was very good. 

Ps, Phil Knight the Nike owners book "shoe dog" is an excellent read Clap

7.5/10

That's the one.
90m should be standard for a film if you ask me. Some films get dragged out too much.

Watched that last night too and really enjoyed it. If it wasn't for the star studded cast as well as Damon and Affleck directing I probably wouldn't have bothered giving it a chance. On the surface the synopsis seemed a bit boring but they told the story well with a good mix of drama and comedy thrown in that made it more entertaining.

Sisu

Think kill bill set in Lapland, set at the end of ww2 , gold miner gets robbed by some Nazis who picked on the wrong guy.

Non stop action, laughable at times but gets a solid 9/10 from me 
Why no wine??!

I'd say it was.  I anticipate Street Fighter 2 Movie to be the best one yet.  Kylie Minogue returns with Jason Statham and Jim Carrey.  Should be a classic.
