    For a change I'm revisiting classic UK sci-fi series Sapphire & Steel. For boring reasons to do with ITV franchise changes, these have never been repeated on terrestrial telly since they went out 1979-82. A shame, as they're still wonderful and wonderfully weird.

    Mission Impossible 5: Rogue Nation. 7/10

    They only went to the stupid mask trick 1 time, Jeremy Renner had a stronger role, and Rebecca Ferguson stole the movie from Cruise, which is good for everybody involved.

    Normally. the MI moves are 5/10 worthy, but for the reasons above, this one was better than most of them.

    Momentum 3/10

    Olga is hot, little else to like. Just plain amateurish.

    Way Out West (James W. Horne, 1937) 9/10

    Each Dawn I Die (William Keighley, 1939) - 8/10

    Also a DVD of Disney Silly Symphonies (from 1929-39). Some have aged better than others, but the finest are 10/10 still.

    Freaks (Tod Browning, 1932) 7/10

    I'd give this a higher rating if it weren't for the flaws. The central 'little people' roles are taken by Harry Earles and his sister Daisy. They were German and although their English is perfectly good, they weren't actors by profession so much of their dialogue comes across a bit wooden; Daisy especially - she has a tendency to talk like Yoda; I suspect she was thinking her lines in German before speaking them in English, so the phrasing is odd.

    Harry had been in an earlier Browning silent movie (The Hateful Three, 1925), where he's terrific I hear. He's probably best known now for his role in The Wizard Of Oz. Olga Baclanova as Cleopatra rather overacts during some of her speeches I think.

    In the original uncut film, Hercules the strong-man is emasculated at the climax. That got swept away in the 30 minutes of cuts (one third of the film's uncut duration!) demanded by New York. I can't say I missed it; he is last seen scrabbling in the mud and rain with the vengeful freaks advancing on him. His uncertain fate is probably better than what would have been seen.
