Very sad to hear of the passing of legendary drummer Tommy Chase..
I was a huge fan of his playing and travelled all over London to see him and his excellent band back in the 80's

If you like your Jazz hard then check his records out..

R.I.P The Groove Merchant... Tommy Chase.

Very good documentary about this legendry musician/producer..

I saw Sudden Impact on release and throrughly enjoyed it at the time although even then I felt it dragged in places and Pat Hingle's performance was slightly ludicrous..

I do think that Sudden Impact fails as a thriller tho.. It now feels to me like a load of set pieces strung together until we get to the end, by which time you never really feel Clints character is in any real danger and does indeded become something of an avenging angel, picking off the baddies one by one.. Having said that I do quite enjoy the ending and  think that some of it as an almost Hitchcock type feel to it..

I havnt watched it in quite a while and dont really plan to... For me its still 4th best in the series..

Douglas is great and Arkin is superb...

I managed to get tickets for the Frida Kahlo exhibition here in London last week..

Frida Kahlo.. Making Herself Up
at London's Victoria and Albert museum..

It sold out very quickly so meant I had to queue for two hours at 8 in the morning in freezing cold to get one of the handful of tickets they dish out when the doors open..

Was it worth it... ? Oh yes !!!

Absolutely amazing.. A selection of some of her most well known work and many personal artifacts, on show
for the very first time outside of Mexico..
I think its the most moved I've ever been at an art exhibition.. Brilliant

The Small World of Sammy Lee

Starring Anthony Newley..
Great little British movie filmed mainly on location in London's Soho district.. A nightclub entertainer has one
day to raise the money he owes gangsters...or else..

I've always been a big fan of Newley, as a singer, songwriter (he co-wrote Goldfinger) and as an actor.
He's great in this.. I worked in Soho back in the 80's and it's great to see the area how it used to be..

  Directed by Steve McQueen

From the director of 12 Years A Slave. Easily my film of the year so far.. and I doubt it'll be topped.. and again featuring an absolutely amazing cast..

A gang are all shot and killed during an attempted robbery.. Their four widows are left behind with nothing in common except a debt and a plan..  Compassionate and whip smart movie..
