Ocean's 12 (2004) :

Unless it is really well done, and this isn't, I hate movies like this.  Too clever by half and even more a waste of time than the original.

Solo : A Star Wars Story (2018 ) :

Handsome Alden Ehrenreich plays young Han Solo.  Solo has debts.  While working off the debt he meets Chewie, he makes a bunch of jokes while dodging laser bullets, and there is a girl...  there is always a girl.

Together they do a bunch of "Star Wars stuff".

Ehrenreich's charisma carries the movie through the weaker moments, of which there are many, and in the end the movie isn't half bad.

Johnny is surprised you saw this movie Kevin. Was under the impression you were not a Star Wars fan. At least the movie wasn't horrible.  :)

And no, it was not horrible.  I was surprised Ron Howard directed it.

Peaky Blinders

This is a British series available on Netflix. The series starts in 1919 Birmingham England. Thomas Shelby (magnificently played by Cillian Murphy) the head of a criminal family, has mighty ambitions for his family. That means he and his family will have to take on Jewish and Italian crime families in London. 

The criminal activities of the family are set upon the backdrop of the recently ended first world war, the rise of communism, and the Irish revolution and the IRA. Riveting stuff! The characters are all well played, and developed. You actually start caring for this family, even though they are bad people. 

8.5 out of 10

   A fantastic series . I completed it awhile back surprised more people have not been watching it . Can't find my review too far back now but it was surprisingly well done and has a few twists . 

 Very graphic and violent not meant for the general audience . 

  Not sure if you watched the last episode of the last season shown .
 
   Interested in your take after all that went on in the series .

Yes, Johnny saw the last episode of season 4. Was very surprised! Don't want to mention spoilers, but Johnny is looking forward to what it will mean in season 5. 

Thomas Shelby only does the right thing, if it is good for him...

  The new Sicario coming out on June 29th ( trailer during the hockey game tonight ) looks like it will be as good as the first one .

La Casa de Papel (Money heist) 2017

This is a great Spanish series. It is called "Money heist" on Netflix. A group of criminals is recruited and trained by the "Professor", to pull off a daring heist in the Royal Spanish mint.

This isn't your typical heist story... The criminals train for 5 months together, but are forbidden from developing relationships. They cannot even tell each other their real names. Contrary to conventional heist stories, these criminals enter the mint, and do not try to get out as quickly as possible. Their goal is to stay several days inside the mint, printing new untraceable money; while stalling the police.

It is a very clever and intense series. But, even with the perfect plan, the perfect heist is impossible to pull off. There are always things that deviate from the plan.

Johnny really liked this series! Crazy but believable.

 Spain have made some great movies like The invisible Guest or Boy Missing .They have upped their game with great writing .

The only drawback is the subtitles you have to fight thru them so it doesn't bother your sensibilities of not wanting to read when watching a movie .

Johnny doesn't mind subtitles. After a while, Johnny forgets he is reading and just follows the story. Besides, Johnny prefers to hear the real actors (rather than a translation), even if he doesn't understand the language. You can still hear intent, emotion and meaning in their voices.

Yup, and Narcos is an amazing series. The guy who played Escobar was a joy to watch. He sounded really menacing in Spanish.
