V-FORCE Training, what to watch during the Bank Holiday Weekend

Jimmy May Media Filming Day

If you get the chance to sit down, relax and watch a little bit of TV over this coming bank holiday weekend…how about checking out some of our suggestions?

Extraction (18)

This action movie isn’t a classic, but it’s top-quality lockdown entertainment. Chris Hemsworth plays the mercenary Tyler Rake, and is sent to retrieve the son of a gang boss, who’s caught in a drug war. It’s familiar stuff, and basically just another riff on Man on Fire, but the action sequences are fantastic.

It’s no surprise, given that the film is directed by Sam Hargrave, responsible for some of the MCU’s fight sequences. If you like the idea of long tracking shots where Thor kills a bunch of hoods, watch this. It doesn’t outstay its welcome, and Hemsworth is always an affable on-screen presence. I particularly enjoyed the car chase scenes and unarmed combat sequences.

Netflix Formula 1: Drive to Survive (PG)

Formula 1: Drive to Survive is a documentary series produced in collaboration between Netflix and Formula One to give an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the drivers and races of the 2018 and 2019 Formula One World Championships.

The first season covering the 2018 World Championship premiered on 8 March 2019, and the second season covering the 2019 World Championship was released on Netflix on 28 February 2020. It was great to see the behind-the-scenes action and to relate to the challenges each driver faced before, during and after the races…incredible!

VE Day: Remembering Victory

Seventy-five years on from Winston Churchill’s announcement that the war in Europe was over, some of Britain’s best-loved entertainers and broadcasters recall the jubilation of that unforgettable day. The extraordinary archive of celebrations all over Britain helps bring back the memories.

Britain’s celebrities – including Patrick Stewart, Anne Reid, Miriam Margolyes, Leslie Phillips and Dame Cleo Laine – share their memories of the tea parties, bonfires, joyful tears and dancing in the streets.

This is great reminder to reflect on how fortunate we are to enjoy the freedom that the war time generation fought and sacrificed so much for.

Planet Earth (PG)

David Attenborough nature documentary series at its finest, enabling the viewer to experience the Earth as never seen before, from the oceans to the deepest jungles with world-class cinematography. Be awe-inspired at the beauty and fragility of our world and remind yourself how vital it is to connect to nature, especially in these unusual times.

Where Eagles Dare (PG)

Where Eagles Dare is a 1968 British World War II action film directed by Brian G. Hutton and starring Richard Burton, Clint Eastwood, and Mary Ure. I grew up watching this movie from a young age, which in turn inspired me to join the military, serve my country and engage in feats of derring-do!

The Ipcress File (PG)

The Ipcress File is a 1965 British espionage film starring Michael Caine based on Len Deighton’s novel The IPCRESS File (1962). It received a BAFTA award for the Best British film released in 1965. Fantastic film, great to see old London and Michael Caine at his best.

I do hope you’ve enjoyed our selection of TV and Movie suggestions to enjoy with your family, and we hope you enjoy the weekend with these on your watch list!

Best wishes
