Nowhere Special, The Golden Hour, Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

Movie 1: Nowhere Special

This is a heartfelt, touching and beautifully made British film. A young father has a terminal illness and is determined to find a home for his 4-year-old son. James Norton, currently at the top of the list to replace James Bond, gives an achingly tender performance. While the title is Nowhere Special, this movie is very special indeed. In limited theatres now, but should be streaming later this summer.


Movie 2: The Golden Hour

This is a very good Dutch thriller six part series currently on Netflix. After a terrorist attack in an Amsterdam market, the lead detective finds himself the prime suspect as he chases a childhood Afghan friend. Really well done. Each episode is about 50 minutes. A second six part series is currently being filmed. In Dutch, but we watched the dubbed English version.


Movie 3: Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace

In theatres for its 25th anniversary, we found this Star Wars rather dull and boring. Meant as a prequel to the original 1977 Star Wars, but unfortunately, the special effects just don’t hold up and seem rather amateurish compared to where the industry is now. Probably better watched on TV, even though worldwide it has raked in a lot of money in one week.
