Film Review with Mark Searby

Friday’s mean films with Mark Searby who gives us his thoughts on cinema and Blu-ray offerings…

I, Tonya – Margot Robbie stars as figure-skater, Tonya Harding, who found notoriety in 1994 due to her rivalry with Nancy Kerrigan.

Birth of the Dragon – A look at the early years of Bruce Lee, but you might just want to see Dragon: The Bruce Lee Story (1993), instead!

Goodbye Christopher Robin – Domhnall Gleeson stars as A.A. Milne and looks at his inspiration for writing Winnie-the-Pooh.  Milne is a shell-shocked veteran of WW2 and this affects his bonding with his Son, Christopher Robin Milne….  Mark also liked that Margot Robbie was in this one, too!

The Snowman – Sorry, nothing to do with the 80s Raymond Briggs animation, but a crime thriller starring Michael Fassbender as a detective with the Oslo police. Charlotte Gainsbourg shines in this, and there’s a quick-as-a-flash performance from Val Kilmer, as well.
