Banshee US TV Series

For those of you watching Banshee series four, the final episode is fast approaching. I have really enjoyed every series and it's not too late for you to catch up.
 
Banshee premise
A man is released from prison after serving 15 years for planning to keep $15 million in diamonds that he was stealing on behalf of his employer, a Ukrainian mob boss named Rabbit. His former lover and accomplice, Rabbit’s daughter Anastasia, took off with the diamonds. Rabbit is after him because he thinks the man will lead him to his daughter and the diamonds. The man flees to the small fictional, Pennsylvanian town of Banshee, where Anastasia has been living under the alias of Carrie Hopewell, the wife of the DA with two children. Lucas Hood, the new sheriff, arrives in town and is immediately killed when he intervenes in a dispute between local criminals and a bar owner. The man takes Hood’s identity and has to impersonate the sheriff and deal with ex-Amish crime lord Kai Proctor, sort things out with "Carrie" and get his share of the diamonds while evading Rabbit.
 
Season 1 focuses on Hood's attempts to restore his relationship with Carrie under the looming threat of Rabbit finding them. Hood completely disregards the law while clashing with Proctor and pursuing his often criminal activities, alienating his deputies. Rabbit eventually tracks him down and Hood surrenders to spare Carrie. Carrie leads some criminal accomplices and the deputies in a raid to free Hood and shoots Rabbit.
 
Season 2 deals with tribal chief Alex Longshadow's attempt to build a casino on the reservation which places Sheriff Hood in the middle of a violent struggle between Longshadow and Proctor. Carrie must face up to her past when she is imprisoned for her part in the raid against her father. With Carrie trying to fix her marriage, Hood enters into a relationship with his deputy Siobhan. He must deal with the real Hood's son when he comes to Banshee looking for his father. Hood and Carrie are forced to track down and confront Rabbit and settle things once and for all when they learn he survived being shot.
 
Season 3 of this crime drama continues to chronicle the exploits of an ex-con who assumes the identity of a lawman named Lucas Hood (Antony Starr) in the small, out-of-the-way town of Banshee, in Pennsylvania. The season opens with Lucas hoping to land a risky new job, after the death of Rabbit (Ben Cross). Nola (Odette Annable) returns to Banshee and confronts Burton. The FBI show and threaten to expose Hood's secret. The station is attacked by Chayton (Geno Segers) and the Redbones, leading to an all out war.
 
Season 4 is the fourth and final season.Two Years after Job went missing, in Banshee, a string of similar murders where young girls hearts are ripped out of their chest and then left at the side of the road becomes a top priority concern when Rebecca Bowman (Lili Simmons) is the third victim in the grotesque killings. Lucas Hood comes out of hiding to investigate her death along with the help of FBI Agent Veronica Dawson (Eliza Dushku). Power in Banshee has changed, with Brock Lotus (Matt Servitto) assuming the title of Sheriff and Kai Proctor (Ulrich Thompsen) as the new Mayor of Banshee, who's been making deals with the Aryan Brotherhood, led by Calvin Bunker (Chris Coy).

Nice Guy Movie

I nearly missed this movie which looks pretty good... 
 
Nice Guys
Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling are a chalk and cheese duo in this fast-talking comedy-thriller. 
 
Holland March (Ryan Gosling) is a down-on-his-luck private eye barely scraping a living in 1970s Los Angeles. Jackson Healey (Russell Crowe) is a tough guy enforcer who thinks with his fists. When these two polar opposites are unexpectedly thrown together in the search for a missing girl, a darkly hilarious and fast-moving mystery unfolds as they plunge ever further into the city’s seedy, neon-inflected underbelly. 
 
Lethal Weapon writer Shane Black returns to the territory of his critically acclaimed directorial debut Kiss Kiss Bang Bang with this snappy and irreverent buddy comedy, one that brings the 1970s roaring back to life in all its flare-trousered glory. Gladiator’s Russell Crowe and Drive’s Ryan Gosling make for unexpectedly hilarious partners in crime whilst the supporting cast includes Oscar winner Kim Basinger.

Mr. Right - Movie

I found this great new movie on Youtube and wonder if it will get a UK cinema release.
 
STORY
Hyperactive at the best of times, Martha (Anna Kendrick; Pitch Perfect) has gone full-on manic since her latest breakup. She babbles, parties like a monster, cooks everything in sight — and is looking to do something terrible when she meets Francis (Sam Rockwell; The Way Way Back). To anyone else, Francis’s approach would come across as creepy, but Martha can’t help but be intrigued. They seem a perfect match: she's bananas, he's bananas... except he's a deadly sort of bananas.  He’s a professional assassin.
 
Francis is a hitman with a cause: he unexpectedly kills the people ordering the hits. Just as Martha begins to realize her new beau wasn't joking when he said he had to step out for a moment to shoot someone, things start heating up for Francis. His services are solicited by a dubious client who's being sought by an equally dubious FBI agent (Tim Roth; The Hateful Eight, Reservoir Dogs). As the bodies pile up, Martha needs to decide whether to flee or join in the mayhem.
