Fight like a girl.
Yes, it is like any old action superhero film but with the dull bits edited out, better acting and a much tighter script.
Somehow the film manages the trick of putting her in a corset-like costume without it appearing sexist.
Just go and see it.
Great support characters and hardly a continuity error.... except the sword when she has killed the nazi general!
Big blow everything up at the end just like you want and it's not too long.

Their Finest
Their Finest (2017)
30 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

A film about a film... in WW2 the British want to make films to prop up the people through the Battle Of Britain.
A woman is hire to help write "the slop", the female dialogue and slowly takes over.
The film develops into something of huge emotional power and is a very solid all round production.
This is a super film and asks to be seen again and again.
Just check Bill Nighy singing Wild Mountain Thyme...

Now this is a strange strange film.
A couple split up in New York and a monster appears in Seoul, join the dots...
It plays as Godzilla meets Twin Peaks and is the oddest mix of genres I've seen in a long time.
The acting is all straight down the line good. The premise is off the planet.
Walking through the park you played in as a child will nNEVER be the same again.
I reckon this is a very niche production and a lot of people will probably think it is very very silly, but if you go with it you will find yet another way that cinema tells wonderful stories.

Denial
Denial (2016)

Timothy Spall transforms into Edward Fox (you have to see it to believe it) in this telling of how holocaust denier and all round prat, David Irving, sued an American author for calling him a holocaust denier.
The phrase BBC Drama has never been more applicable.
Good solid performances. I wish it had been longer to allow more detail.
Highly recommended.

This low budget/big cast and director film seems to have disappeared off the map.
See the film and you'll reckon political interference.
It is actually well worth hunting down.
Chastain is super and the entire cast is good.
Hard to describe without giving much away, but JC plays a Washington lobbyist caught in the big money jaws of intrigue an corruption.
You'll keep guessing all the way.
