GLProUK’s Tony Gordon (How To Write A Tune, Bones Knows) and Jay Ludgrove (The Jaily Show) return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Tony’s choice Fury. Fury is a 2014 war drama written and directed by David Ayer it stars Brad Pitt as Don "War Daddy" Collier, Shia LaBoeuf as Boyd "Bible" Swan, Logan Lerman as Norman "Machine" Ellison, Michael Peña as Trini "Gordo" Garcia and Jon Bernthal as Grady "Coon-Ass" Travis. Set in 1945, the Western Allied invasion of Germany meets fanatical Schutzstaffel resistance - War Daddy and his crew are leading the defence in their tank, affectionately named ‘Fury’. While the storyline is fictional, Fury and War Daddy are authentic - American tank commander Staff Sergeant Lafayette G. "War Daddy" Pool’s experience influenced Pitt’s War Daddy and was filmed in the UK due to the availability of functional Sherman tanks to be borrowed. Heavy on machismo and violence Fury doesn’t shy away from the realities of war and the Second World War specifically (dead horses being eaten).   [supsystic-tables id=226] Fury opens with Brad Pitt stabbing a German in the eye - if that is your thing then you’ll probably enjoy Fury - if it’s not then maybe give this one a miss. The scores for Fury reflect this and it scores a very respectable 3.98 overall. What do you guys think? Have you seen Fury? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Will Collins (screenwriter for Wolfwalkers) and Kevin Lehane (screenwriter for Grabbers) from The Best Bits podcast return to Flixwatcher remotely to review Will’s choice No Country for Old Men. No Country for Old Men is the multi award-winning (Best Picture, Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role, Best Director and Best Adapted Screenplay at the Oscars) 2007 neo-Western crime thriller from Joel and Ethan Coen. Based on the novel of the same name by Cormac McCarthy it stars Tommy Lee Jones as a local sheriff Ed Tom Bell, Josh Brolin as Llewelyn Moss - a Vietnam vet who stumbles across a large amount of money from a drug deal on bad and a terrifying Javier Bardem as Anton Chigurh - a psychopath hitman hired to track down the missing drug deal money.   [supsystic-tables id=225] No Country for Old Men is violent, detached, bleak but also absurdly funny in places and widely considered the Coen’s greatest achievement in cinema. Less easy to recommend to people than say Fargo, Flixwatcher and guests score No Country for Old Man highly on recommendability with (caveats) but low on the small score to give an overall score of 3.96. What do you guys think? Have you seen No Country for Old Men? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Paul and Ben from Have You Scene This? Podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Paul’s choice Close Encounters of the Third Kind. Close Encounters of the Third Kind - The Directors Cut is the 1977 Steven Spielberg sci fi classic starring Richard Dreyfus as Roy Neary, the everyman who after a close encounter with an alien spaceship becomes obsessed with the Devils Tower, has a breakdown that cause his wife to to leave him and sets out on a quest to join the aliens. For a film about aliens, actual aliens are mainly absent for the majority of the film and the main focus is on Neary and the French scientist Claude Lacombe,played by French New Wave auteur François Truffaut, as he chases mysterious encounters across the world. Close Encounters features many key Spielberg themes, Light as mystery, ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances, John Williams theme, fractured family, absent fathers and some classic child peril. Despite its record breaking box office returns on its release and critical acclaim it hasn’t ingrained itself in cinematic history in the same way say Jaws, E.T or Jurassic Park have.   [supsystic-tables id=224] This is reflected on the Flixwatcher scores, even with some top marks from Paul and a decent recommendability, Close Encounters of the Third Kind only scores 3.23 overall What do you guys think? Have you seen Close Encounters of the Third Kind? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!

Caris and Neha from Not Having It All podcast join Flixwatcher remotely to review Caris’ choice Wild Child. Wild Child is a 2008 teen comedy romance film starring Emma Roberts as the Wild Child Poppy, a spoilt LA brat who is sent to an English boarding school to straighten her out and teach her valuable life lessons. Natasha Richardson also makes her last film appearance as the headmistress Mrs Kingsley and Alex Pettyfer plays the love interest. Wild Child is a mix of a typical fish out of water film, Poppy struggles with British food, locations and finds an enemy within seconds of arriving and a story of friendship with bonding over secondhand clothes shopping. Not only is Wild Child a crime against the chip butty it neither works as a comedy or a romance particularly well. There are some surprising plot turns - involving a completely unexpected act of arson.   [supsystic-tables id=223] Despite Caris’ enthusiasm for Wild Child, Flixwatcher and Neha were unconvinced and scores were low across all the categories, apart from small screen score to give an overall score of 2.40. What do you guys think? Have you seen Wild Child? What did you think? Please let us know in the comments below!
