As every other month in 2017, my book reviews are all over here on my book blog. I read some excellent books in June, including The Hate U Give by Angie Thomas and Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe.
As for films, here's what I watched in June:
The Damned United - I'd never seen this and it was on iPlayer. I liked it and Michael Sheen was really good
The Little Prince - I didn't even finish this as I didn't like it much. It looks good, though
See No Evil - The Moors Murders. Not the most cheerful of films, obviously, but it is superbly acted by all involved
Into Thin Air - Death on Everest. I'm morbidly fascinated with people who climb Everest and the fact that so many people die while doing it. This is a bad film but interesting
I'd never seen Flashdance so I decided to, I like films about dancing but lord this was bad
T2: Trainspotting - Sam and I watched this at the same time and emailed each other as we did. I love the original film and I felt this was a good sequel. Really kitsch and very tongue in cheek in parts. I really liked it!
Matilda - I was browsing Netflix and came across this. I've seen it before but not for years, it isn't as good as the book but I liked it.
And finally, I watched this film about Johnny Cash which was on YouTube and was a good look at his life.
