Spoiler: Don't watch the trailer. It gives away the whole plot  


Holy crap I just watched a perfect copy of "Get Out" on Kodi (on a Fire TV stick using wifi, mik). I didn't know anything about the movie, it just appeared first on the new movies list. Wow what a great story! Scared the sh1t out of me well and truly and I was actually talking to the screen and making gestures by the end :whack: :yes:. That may have been the wine but i don't think so :funar:. I'd be interested to hear how you got on watching it.

Deserving of the high ratings despite not having any big names (I think). It is out a couple of months and is still in some cinemas but the fact that I didn't hear a thing about it made it all the more enjoyable. I can't really say anything at all about the plot but it is worth watching. Liberal racism at it's best, and sometimes very funny too. OMG it is so clever in places. Loved it. 8.5+ from me :shhh: :fright:

Song of the Sea. IMDB 8.1/10. Oscar nominated 2016. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1865505/

I've been meaning to watch this for a while and seen it on Amazon Prime last night for the first time. It's a fantastic and emotional mythological story which is beautifully illustrated. Right up my street as a big softie and has the feel of many games that I like, in fact this would make a cracking PSN game. It is from the same people that made The Secret of Kells which was also Oscar nominated and I loved.

Ben resents his sister Saoirse as his mum died giving birth to her when he was only 4. She is a complete darling of a child but doesn't speak. Brendan Gleeson is the voice of Conor, the children's father, who is a broken man after loosing his wife. This is a 10/10 from me so it's rare! I'd be interested to hear if the PSL kids would enjoy this. I am not including the original trailer as it gives the complete story away, but they released a new trailer which is much better at setting the scene while keeping enough of the plot back. It has an Irish/Scottish/Scandinavian feel the mythology bit.
