Marvel Fatigue? What Marvel Fatigue? Honey, I was born ready for this film.
I should start this by saying, I freaking love the Fast and Furious series. I have not the faintest of ideas why; I am not the target audience, for sure, I don’t give a shit about cars, and explosions bore me at the best of times. I loathe Michael Bay and all of his Transformers-esque bullshit.
Locke! The famous Locke! Which came out in 2014 to nary a commercial whisper and practically passed me by altogether (a feat unheard of for a) Tom Hardy films since Stuart: A Life Backwards (2007) in general and b) what I suppose you would call one-man films, where it is one actor – or actress, Hollywood, if you’re listening – onscreen for at least 95% of the film), until I eventually tracked it down.
Okay, so there are some films that are seminal. They can change your life, or they can just stick with you for a long long time. The Sound of Music. Beverly Hills Cop. Dead Poets Society (I liked it, okay?). It’s a Wonderful Life. This film…this film is not one of those. It’s not even quite the heights of romantic comedy that is When Harry Met Sally (aka my go-to feelgood movie. It seriously works for everything – bad day at work? When Harry Met Sally. Fight with a friend? When Harry Met Sally. Got rejected from that job you wanted? When Harry Met Sally). But Two Night Stand is an oddly charming film that I find I am thinking about the next day.
I saw this film YEARS ago (and tracked down a DVD copy in rural Devon - no mean feat in 2005 so screw you to whoever pinched that from me. I suspect I annoyed someone into watching it so they took it as revenge. I was a bit Jehovah's Witness-y about the whole thing. I really felt like it was important that lots of people saw this film) and all I remember is being totally blown away by it. Ten years later and shit, nothing has changed. It's a really freaking good film.
This is a new launch of the MyMovieFinder website. Might not look like the site has changed much but it is more of a backend upgrade and a lot more integrated with the services that are available. You can easily see if a movie is currently being stream on one of the many service that are out there.
Now showing if movies are available on Netflix, Amazon and Now TV

This film is hella tense. I mean, seriously. The subject matter is tense anyway - young soldier mistakenly gets left behind on the streets of Belfast in 1971 in the midst of the Troubles - but wow,...
