Before the Review: Coronavirus continues to dominate the news, impacting people’s lifestyles. Moving on, the current list of countries added to the quarantine list for England includes Akrotiri and Dhekelia, Anguilla, Antigua and Barbuda, Australia, the Azores, Barbados, Bermuda, British Antarctic Territory, British Indian Ocean Territory, British Virgin Islands, Brunei, the Canary Islands, Cayman Islands, the Channel Islands, Cuba, Cyprus, Denmark, Dominica, Estonia, Falkland Islands, Faroe Islands, Fiji, Finland, Gibraltar, Germany, Greece (including Lesvos, Santorini, Serifos, Tinos and Zakynthos), Greenland, Grenada, Hong Kong, Ireland, the Isle of Man, Japan, Latvia, Lithuania, Macao (Macau), Madeira, Malaysia, Maldives, Mauritius, Montserrat, New Caledonia, New Zealand, Norway, Pitcairn, Henderson, Ducie and Oeno Islands, Seychelles, Singapore, South Korea, South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands, St Barthélemy, St Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Pierre and Miquelon, St Vincent and the Grenadines, Sweden, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam, a three tier system has been introduced in England to determine what type of lockdowns are needed (London is currently in Tier 2) and Post – Brexit trade talks have been extended, hopefully enabling a deal to avoid economic disaster. Yet another messy issue regarding Brexit... *Sighs*

Review: Well, Vin Diesel is playing the hero in Bloodshot, one whose vocabulary isn’t limited to “I am Groot”. Inspiration from Groundhog Day and Edge of Tomorrow come to mind when watching this different but interesting movie. Depending on which side of humour you’re on, not so child friendly action / language are dropped, which may explain the “12A” rating, although I’d probably have left it at “12”. Most of the comedy is courtesy of Wilfred Wigans, which may well be needed if Sony is to push for possible sequels.
