    This week's offerings feature one of the best films I've seen in years, and one of the worst I've ever sat through. There's the bad - In A Violent Nature and the surprisgly good -in A Quiet Place

    If you watch one film this week, I'd recommend I Am : Celine Dion, which was released on Amazon Prime Video in late June. It's a searingly honest look at the superstar's battle with Stiff Person Syndrome, which is so rare it only affects one in a million people.

    It's a bit of a quiet week for big news releases, but I've managed to squeeze a few films in. They are all weirdly similiar! Arcadian is set in the near future, and we see a decimated, scorched Earth where only a handful of humans have managed to survive a major event.

    I've become a lot bolder with spiders these days. I found a pretty massive one in Studio 3 at Tameside Radio the other week, and set it free using a glass and a copy of this newspaper. My younger brother Nik is absolutely terrified of them, and I doubt he'll have watched this film.

    Flaming June is here, and there are some cracking new releases coming to the big screen in the next few weeks. I'm looking forward to A Quiet Place : Day One, which is directed by Michael Sarnoski, previously responsible for the excellent Nicolas Cage film Pig.

    The first of two films based on that Newsnight interview with Prince Andrew hit Netfllix this week, and Scoop was a five star treat in my book. Based on three chapters of a book by producer Sam McAlister, who arranged te interview at Buckingham Palace and has since said it was "hard to keep a poker face" while he was speakin

    In a strange twist of fate, I've written in my other column this week about the troubles facing the Royal Mail in hitting delivery targets and turning a profit, as parcels take over and letters fade into the background. In Wicked Little Letters, we revisit a largely true story from the 1920s.

    If you're a John Wick fan, there will inevitably be comparisons with pulpy new action film Monkey Man, which is out this weekend. Armed with little more than a monkey mask and a shedload of grit and determination, Dev Patel's Kid won't rest until the men who took everything from him get what's coming to them.
