Saw Rocketman today, thoroughly enjoyed it. Also saw a trailer for Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, looks really good.

Just booked tickets for Apollo 11, very excited about that one, old enough to remember the actual event at the time (and 13)

I went to see the documentary 'What We Left Behind: Looking Back at Deep Space Nine' on Wednesday and thoroughly enjoyed it. It was only playing in cinemas for one night afaik. I got to the cinema about 25 mins before it started and was told there was a quiz in the bar. Before we went in we were told that one of the actors from Deep Space Nine, Aron Eisenberg, (Nog) would be answering some questions, I thought in person, but turned out to be via Skype. Still great though, I doubt many other of the screenings around the country had something similar.

As well as talking to the cast, they also scanned some clips from the original series to HD to show in the documentary, and the quality jump was startling. They had one of the original cinematographers help with the grading of the scans, and even though it was shot on film, this chap had never seen the quality of the film as they only got the video back to edit and broadcast. I think the original aim of the documentary was to try and urge CBS to scan and release the series on Blu-Ray.

Some of the original writers also got together to sketch out the first episode of a eighth series now, and how the story would continue now, 20 years later. I thought it was all brilliant.

I think it is getting released on DVD and Blu-Ray next month for anyone who wasn't lucky enough to get to see it in the cinema.

Edited because I forgot to put the actors name in. :rolleyes: :)

Watched "yesterday" the other day, enjoyable light hearted romcom that passed a couple of hours pleasantly.

I brought the kids to see Toy Story 4 a coupe weeks back, hadn't been to the cinema in a long while. I enjoyed it more than I thought I might. I would say it's better than 3, it's still got some schmaltz of course
