we have border, sweden's entry for the foreign language film oscar. and captain marvel, we've had a spanish drama, now a swedish drama. a female customs officer who can smell fear. the next superhero movie. well done. that is a brilliant synopsis. the less beyond that you know, the better. a story by the writer well, everybody knows, of let the right one in, which tells you there may be some a spectacular cast for a start. supernatural elements. from the director of a separation, comes with great pedigree. which was good. penelope cruz is laura, absolutely brilliant. who lives in buenos aires and comes back to spain, to her hometown for a celebration, she's a border guard, and she brings her teenage daughter, she can smell trouble, who very quickly starts hanging she feels like she is an outsider, considered all her life there's around with a young boy something wrong with her, then she meets a man who seems to be a kindred spirit. who tells her that many years ago, and together, they discover that actually, the world may not be her mother was in love with paco, as they thought it was. played by javier ba rdem. she asks who knows, and he says everybody knows. shortly after, during the celebration, the daughter i don't want to say any more disappears. than that, other to say if you are a fan of the films has she run away? has she been kidnapped? of david cronenberg, text messages suggest have enjoyed things like splice, that the latter is true. but there is also immediately a concern about who knows what. if you like that norwegian film here is a clip. by andre, a strange mixture of documentary and fantasy,
this has all of these things, but the most important thing is the less you know about where the story is going, the better because halfway through, people have used the term fairy tale, it is like a dark fairy tale but grounded, rooted in reality, and it's really about identity. the same way that moonlight was full of that question, "who are you?", this begins with "who am i?" and it is a fantastical story about identity that is grounded in reality. although it is not perfect, there are things in it that genuinely i did not see coming. i was really surprised. and impressed by being surprised. fantastic. captain marvel. many different incarnations of captain marvel over the years. brie larson is the intergalactic warrior with human memories who crash lands on earth in the 1990s, an age of blockbuster video and cd—roms, computers where you go away and make a cup of tea and come back and they are still turning on. she goes head—to—head with ben mendelsohn as a shape shifting alien and she crosses paths
i was thinking how many films have there been featuring a fight on the top of a train. i can think of at least three. but here's the thing. you have to have the action sequences, that is what the marvel movies do. this was made by the directors of half nelson and mississippi grind. you look at these kind of movies directed by the indie directors, they bring some of that indie sensibility into the film. you get a great big blockbuster, but it has something else. i think the co—writers and directors have done that to some extent. i would have liked to have been odder and more indie. i think there are some problems with the narrative. it is an establishing story and there are a lot of beats you have to hit. that said, brie larson is terrific in the title role. great to see here. it is a good cinematic role model,
the times are changing. sam jackson, brilliantly de—aged digitally by 25 years, something i would really not mind if they could do that to me. you and me both. back in my mid—305, it was fine. it is fun. i wanted it to be darker and stranger, but it is not that kind of film. it feels very upbeat and fun, and brie larson is really terrific. it is fine, enjoyable, i know many people who really loved it. i liked it. i didn't love it, but i liked it. it is fine. when you say it like that... it is fine. honestly. best out. fighting with my family is great. i really like it. based on the true story of a wrestling family from norwich. a young girl goes to america the join the wwe. florence pugh is dynamite as paige. the rock is in it. he's also the producer. he was sitting at home in the uk,
and he watched a channel 4 documentary about the family and thought that would make a feature film and it really has. it went to number one at the box office. my best out. i thought the aftermath was really good, which you really didn't like. that goes to show you all criticism is different. it'sjust opinion. i think the aftermath looked great, itjust didn't have quite the substance. not amazing, but good. best dvd. at the end of awards season, rami malek winning all the awards for bohemian rhapsody and whatever else one may think of the film, this performance is terrific. i saw queen at hyde park in 1975. you see him on the screen. he wasn't even born then. i think it is a brilliant performance. there are other things wrong with the film. hats off to dexter fletcher for saving it. it takes liberty with the stories. the criticism is they kind of slightly whitewashed this version of freddie. i think it takes a story and then
bends it to its own dramatic purposes. certainly moving things around in terms of the chronological narrative. but find a recent biopic that hasn't. i think the dramatic liberties are ok. i do know the real story because i was quite a queen obsessive for a while. i think his performance was great. and the music is astonishing. the live aid, 20 minutes at the end. it is funny because the first five queen albums were great, and i tailed off, but you watch it and you think, this is like the abba songbook, every single one of these are hits. it was fun. very enjoyable. that's it for this week, though. thanks for watching. goodbye.
have got a weather front moving in thatis have got a weather front moving in that is bringing some rain across central and southern england but it is this little fella out in the atla ntic is this little fella out in the atlantic as it bumps into cold air tomorrow morning that could cause some issues. for the time being, now, we have one oi’ some issues. for the time being, now, we have one or two wintry showers up into the far north. more significant rain moving its way into wales, central and southern england. and that will be the story as we move through the night tonight. so by dawn tomorrow morning it will be sitting across northern england. it sweeps off into the north sea quite quickly but the next front pushes in and bumps into that colder air. and thatis and bumps into that colder air. and that is where we could see the potential for some that is where we could see the potentialfor some rain, some sleet and some snow. we could have some accumulations of about 5— six centimetres to higher ground across scotland. some slushy deposits to lower levels. gusts of wind, 45—50 mph in scotland. wintry showers continuing to northern ireland and northern england but across eastern england, despite it being cloudy, dull and wet first thing in the morning, it is not expected to last. for england and wales into the afternoon it is a slow improvement. it will be very windy indeed but there will be some decent sunny spells. gusts of wind 50—60 mph. snow showers threatening into the north—west. highest values disappointing, 3—5d. further south we are looking at a maximum of 6—11. so as we move out of sunday into monday we have this brief ridge of high pressure which will quieten things down significantly for the start of the week, but not for particularly long. with clear skies we could see those temperatures falling away and monday morning could be a chilly start.
