    'Snowpiercer' (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Snowpiercer)

    Another You Tube recommended film, via the smart TV app. Weird film set 17 years after a climate disaster, brought on by man trying to fix climate change. Highly improbable, but if you suspend disbelief and accept this reality, what we have is a film that paints a horrific and surreal existence for the remnants of humanity. Terry Gilliam's Brazil comes to mind but Snowpiercer is a much nastier and brutal film.

    Definitely worth a watch.

    Two Mules for Sister Sara (1970) Clint Eastwood and Shirley MacLaine star. Directed by Don Siegel.

    Watching my blu ray copy. Excellent film this, and been described as a kind of "The African Queen" gone west. Neither Siegal or Eastwood got on with MacLaine, calling her a hard bitch or something like that lol

    Superb WWII thriller about the only German POW to escape and make it back to Germany.
    Incredible story, strong performances - including loads of classic British character actors - and a few dodgy model shots that really look shoddy in HD. The opening scene with the 109 crashing is hilarious

    Well worth a watch if you like tense war movies.

    Yeah, I looked up the story after watching it - bonkers, eh ??

    It took him the best part of a year to trek halfway round the globe to get back to the fatherland, only to have an engine failure in his 109 on a routine patrol over The Channel a few short months after resuming duties with the Luftwaffe.

    One thing that niggled at me was the intimation that he might be turned by the British authorities.
    The interrogating officer said he said the usual things about the Reich but didn't believe a word of it and was only out for himself.
    Would've been interesting if he had been a double agent, especially given his own version as a Dutchman.
