5:48 pm
recently7 it's not as good as you remember. when chasing it says this is a family affair a story about family and he also said this is a film that gives ghostbusters that the which suggesting that suggesting that after the 2016 female lead ghostbusters which many of the fans were up in arms about, how dare they they have taken the thing i love and changed it in a way to know we get this. this is basically it's a bit strange 7 an exchange of things, most of the movie the first half of it nothing happens. the second half of the everything happens and everything that happens is remember that bit from ghostbusters that you liked? here it is. remember that liked7 here it is. remember that other bit from ghostbusters that you like, well here it is. you remember that other thing? here is but slightly different. my problem is this, freshly, at least the 2016 ghostbusters i think that to do something new. some people did not like it. i thought it was fine. but at least it attempted to do something new. what this does is go we all love ghostbusters, ghostbusters is to be revered and
5:49 pm
fine, it had its moments but watching a movie thatjust goes through all the old tropes by going over, but this time we've got a connection to stranger things and this time it's in your generation and this time it's about family. is it? or is it really that ghostbusters has run its course? and it's been a bit time to just go, 0k, it's been a bit time to just go, ok, i think we've had enough of this. the thing that troubles me is it's so ordinary. and you think of it at the big franchise with huge built—in audience and what do you do with it? you just go, there as i said, it's for the fans. well the fans kind of deserve it in that case. that for the fans. well the fans kind of deserve it in that case.— deserve it in that case. that is to talk about _ deserve it in that case. that is to talk about petite _ deserve it in that case. that is to talk about petite maman. - deserve it in that case. that is to talk about petite maman. this i deserve it in that case. that is to talk about petite maman. this is| deserve it in that case. that is to l talk about petite maman. this is a new femme _ talk about petite maman. this is a new femme i _ talk about petite maman. this is a new femme i think— talk about petite maman. this is a new femme i think it's _ talk about petite maman. this is a new femme i think it's already - talk about petite maman. this is a | new femme i think it's already one of my favourite films of the year. if this is not in my top three at the end of the year. a young girl she lost her grandmother and she
5:50 pm
goes with her mother to her grandmothers house to clean it out and the mother connected with the grief. many goes out into the woods and finds a heart to her about and find another young girl who shares the name of her mother and seems to share many of the experiences that she knows her mother had. so on the one hand it's a fairy tale and the other hand it's a ghost story and maybe at that time travelling sterry, maybe it's back to the future without the delorean, it's so natural and so well observed and it's about bridging the intergenerational gap about parents and children and grandmothers and it's really profound but anyone can see the stem. it's 72 minutes long, it is as close to a perfect film as i can remember seeing. it's absolutelyjust i can remember seeing. it's absolutely just drop—dead astonishing. and i would encourage everyone to go and see it. if you say it's a children's film that does it and injustice, it's a children's

5:54 pm
ghost story, a psychological thriller, a brilliant story by johnny greenwood and it's the absolute antithesis of that terrible film diana which came out some years ago and wasjust film diana which came out some years ago and was just awful. this is brilliant and kristin surak does not get award nominations and if there is there no justice get award nominations and if there is there nojustice if get award nominations and if there is there no justice if they don't. in terms of streaming, what are you going to recommend? it’s in terms of streaming, what are you going to recommend?— in terms of streaming, what are you going to recommend? it's on netflix, it is directed — going to recommend? it's on netflix, it is directed by _ going to recommend? it's on netflix, it is directed by halle _ going to recommend? it's on netflix, it is directed by halle berry _ going to recommend? it's on netflix, it is directed by halle berry which - it is directed by halle berry which starts and it's the story of a mixed martial arts fighter who left the ring sometime ago. now suddenly reunited with their child and discovered she has to get back into the ring. it's quite well directed, it certainly got very, very greedy, punchy fight scenes. if there's a problem with it and there is, it takes every sport cliche in the book but, that said it's there are things
5:55 pm
it does that are interesting and it's clearly very committed and there is during the bite seems there's an awful lot of rocky and that's not a bad thing 7 the fight scenes. it is not the most original film, but i thought it was fine and i think it's well directed and certainly the fight scenes were very gritty and you can feel the fights. in terms of the every sport cliche, what do you mean? 50. in terms of the every sport cliche, what do you mean?— in terms of the every sport cliche, what do you mean? so, you have to net into what do you mean? so, you have to get into the — what do you mean? so, you have to get into the ring _ what do you mean? so, you have to get into the ring because _ what do you mean? so, you have to get into the ring because you - what do you mean? so, you have to get into the ring because you have l get into the ring because you have to be the match but also what you have to do is win over your life and you have to solve the problem for your child that you have to deal with the issue, it's overburdened with the issue, it's overburdened with stuff that has to be overcome and also without this no profit split is intended, rocky is the kind of thing that laid the template for all of these movies because rocky went if you want to tell the story this is how you do it. and it's

again today across eastern scotland and england we had some sunshine and temperatures were a degree up yesterday with 17 celsius in parts. ijust yesterday with 17 celsius in parts. i just want to show you what's going to happen over the next few days. that 17 degrees in aberdeen was going to find a way to eight with the northern wind into the weekend. and it will be cold as we move through the toys the end of the week and we could see an increasing risk of winter showers. noticeable difference to the weather story over the next few days. here is the weather front that brought this warmth but also this wet weather into the far north of scotland. it will continue to produce some rain in scotland and the northern isles of a night to night. a lot of clouds stays with us through the night. temperatures holding up and we will see ranging between six and 12 celsius. into tomorrow morning, the weather front pushing slowly south and into northern ireland and northern england and by the end of the afternoon northwest wales and ahead of it we should see some limited sunshine but still some
5:58 pm
glimpses of sunshine and some warmth with ten to 12 celsius. they will be getting a showers as the wind swings around to it and northern. the frontal system clears through saturday night into sunday morning and that's when the cold air will start to push its way across the whole of the country so you will notice the difference to the feel of the weather for all of us on sunday morning. it is notjust the temperatures it's also the strength of the wind. it will be a cold start with a touch of frost. hopefully on sunday there will be some sunshine to compensate for that. a brisk northern wind and an exposed coast feeling and it's also going to drive in a few scattered showers from time to time. this temperatures sitting at around seven to 10 degrees a bit down where it should be at this time of year but hopefully this unchangeable compensate. a cold start to monday and clear skies would allow temperatures to follow enough to frost into scotland and northern england. high pressure
5:59 pm
stays with us for the early half of next week. but i want to show you what's happening on wednesday. another frontal system will move through and they will be some roller coaster when it comes to temperatures over the next few days. it will feel cool but rather dry monday and tuesday. the potential for some rain on wednesday and cold her on thursday into friday.
