The Core (2003, dir. Jon Amiel)

When the earth’s core stops rotating, a mission is assembled to restart it. Enjoyably daft and self-aware big-budget B-movie, with an excellent cast of character actors playing the dopey material with an eye to stay on the right side of camp always.

Bleed For This (2016, dir. Ben Younger)

Biopic of Vinny Pazienza, who overcame a broken neck to return to championship-standard boxing. A straightforward but immersive triumph-over-adversity story from the headlines, with great work from a talented cast, especially Ciaran Hinds and Aaron Eckhart.
