and funny little creatures. that sums it up. boot we'll move on. laughter if you saw the first one, you'll know that it is about... there a talking raccoon, a talking tree. that he has now been cut down to a tiny tree which is very cute stop there with me on this. i don't know what they do, they save the galaxy from something, although the raccoon who is voiced by bradley cooper steal some staff which means that half of the galaxy is after them in a flash gordon style chase. as we join the action now, they are being chased by hordes of golden aliens. this is weird, because a sovereign fleet approaching from the rear. probably because rocket still some of their batteries. gray dude! right. | of their batteries. gray dude! right. i don't know why they are after us. what a mystery. will you thinking! that your

defence! mother i will you thinking! that your defence! motherl am will you thinking! that your defence! mother i am teaching will you thinking! that your defence! motherl am teaching her will you thinking! that your defence! mother i am teaching her a lesson! i didn't realise your motivation was on tourism. it is a shame that the sovereign has mistakenjoint shame that the sovereign has mistaken joint ventures. exactly. shame that the sovereign has mistakenjoint ventures. exactly. i was means casting! can you say this will have to be survived this battle. the raccoon looks quite cute. you can call him a puppy or a triangle says panda. it is a film about banter and insult and not much else. i kind of enjoyed it in a kind of lobotomised carapace. it doesn't really go anywhere. there is a plot about chris pratted category defined his father played by kurt russell who delivers a beeline like he is
5:50 pm
looking in the bathroom mirror. they happily explode this guy because he isa happily explode this guy because he is a planet really and... it really makes no sense. it is kind of a pity, because that had that it would bea pity, because that had that it would be a much better superhero movie than normal. the colours are good, zoe saldana and the other guy who is a benjamin thing type person, there's a lot to look at. eventually it has a poprock album cover luke. it doesn't really go anywhere, and i feel that plot this is leaves you feeling lost. you are, you're not selling it to me. i better stop saying that. is that who it is aimed at? it is not going to convert people who didn't see the first one. if you did like the present, there is nothing here that footbridge of it, it feels like it is treading water into volume three. it is inevitable. makarova leave me with that thought. shall we move on? this
5:51 pm
isa that thought. shall we move on? this is a change of pace, this is the promise which stars christian bale and oscar isaac and charlotte le bon. this is set against the terrible atrocities of the armenian genocide, which took place in 19a0 that i19 1a, genocide, which took place in 19a0 that i191a, 1915. yet to be acknowledged as a genocide. it has never had a big—screen treatment, only a few times been dealt with in popular culture. here it is really front and centre in what is a kind of love, war—torn epic with this love triangle. christian bale, at 0scar as a comic charlotte le bon, they try to stay together doing the terrors of this walk where armenians are being turfed out of villages, ethnically cleansed. they are being turfed out of villages, ethnically cleansed. they have moved away my the turks arejoining cleansed. they have moved away my the turks are joining with the germans and there's more. it becomes a sort of uneasy mix of terrible tragedy with this kind of beating heart love story. is that the director trying to inform is all
5:52 pm
about history? history that he clearly feels we should know more about by using that as a love story backdrop? that is a sort of thing be seenin backdrop? that is a sort of thing be seen in second world war movies, cou ntless seen in second world war movies, countless times. but here, i didn't really know about the armenian genocide and am not alone with this. and i don't really know much more about it having seen the film, which i think is a pity, because that is releva nt i think is a pity, because that is relevant is important. there are some terrible things that went on to the armenian population, populate that the concentration camps, which fo res ha d ow that the concentration camps, which foreshadow holocaust troops that we seek. these are very interesting kind of foreshadowing is. it is partly interesting to the point when a love story didn't interest me at all, i wanted to find out what was happening to the armenians. but you need that love story to give you entry into the story. they played very well, 0scar isaac is a good, so it's christian bale has a gruff news reporter, and charlotte le bon lacks a bit of star power in the middle of
5:53 pm
it. it is very well intentioned. but i don't think it is going to be the monument that the armenian genocide deserves in terms of cinema. let's move on to a film i think a lot of people are talking about. lady macbeth, not to do with the shakespeare play. not really, but she is a lady macbeth style character. this is played by british actors florence pugh, this is her second major role and she completely devours this role. it is like watching someone blossom on screen. she is terrific. she plays a woman called catherine who is sold to a wealthy mine owning family up north and becomes a wife, imprisoned in this terrible house which creaks and cracks and the wind billows through. the husband goes away. she is left with the house to herself and get drunk on power and takes a fancy to herself as lady of the manner and ta kes a herself as lady of the manner and takes a fancy to sebastian the

5:55 pm
say a lot of people talk about her, she was only 19 when that was filmed. it is the director was like debut as well. yes, he has an opera director, and the story has been made into an opera before. it was banned by stalin because that would have that i feared that... they read oui’ have that i feared that... they read our mind. the way that she does it in this film it is about a good idea, russia has a terrible consequence for her thirst. we admire and love her, but yet terribly complex and weight is laid is brilliant. i think this is one of the best bit is debuts i have seen in ages, and you think it is a costu me in ages, and you think it is a costume drama, it really subverts all those tropes. it is stark and lea n all those tropes. it is stark and lean and kind of frightening and macabre row. it has a fairly mixed cast with two black characters which bring another shade of class and race to that period drama. i think it isa race to that period drama. i think it is a superb film, five stars from
5:56 pm
me. fantastic. there is thereby back onto. and one to my shame i have not been able to see but i'm dying to see. this is an oscar-winning domain —— documentary god i am notjohnny grow. you can find it on streaming channel somewhere. it examines race in america through the eyes of a forgotten activist james baldwin who isa forgotten activist james baldwin who is a poet, and jazz era writer and author. an extraordinary figure whose blood front and centre of this, an examination of the civil rights movement to him, but it is an angry and powerful film. rights movement to him, but it is an angry and powerfulfilm. i can't forget it. i'm surprised it didn't win the best picture at the oscars. it is voiced by samuel ljackson doing james bond report back now that animation. i think is one of the best things he has done. the dvd, have you picked isjust on the best things he has done. the dvd, have you picked is just on the? your choice is reminding me how old iam, your choice is reminding me how old i am, normally it is something that is after the last few months. now you've taken us back to the 1980s. letter to brezhnev, which is like me
5:57 pm
delving into my albums and coming out with that. it is very much a soundtrack album, and from that era. it isa soundtrack album, and from that era. it is a film that everyone went to see, two girls liverpool on a night out and falling in love with two russian sailors. the actors have gone on to bigger things. it has got brodsky beat in it as well. it was about working—class thatcher era britain. it was a rebellious film. but it was also bleak in that classic big way was up and restore them put on blu—ray, i wonder if the great will still hold to it, but i think it is a real snapshot of britain that might have been forgotten. a lost classic film, but one person as you hear the name, you are reminded of it. it is a cult classic from the british archives and i'm delighted it is out for a new generation to discover. ghosh thank you, jason. you can come

out completely unnecessary operations is found guilty of wounding with intent. ian paterson operated on hundreds of people, convincing them they needed highly invasive, often life changing treatment, when they didn't. ifeel like i've been mutilated. all this was for nothing. all the scars i thought were there because they were a badge of honour, are now because he's mutilated me. the nhs has already paid out nearly £18 million to settle the cases of more than 250 patients convinced to have operations they didn't need. mr paterson hasn't shown any remorse for the terrible things he's done, and he's really damaged the trust that the public had in the health service and with some of our health professionals. concerns had first been raised about ian paterson more than 20 years ago. we'll be asking how he was able to continue operating for so long.
