The Gentleman is Guy Ritchie’s triumphant return to the gritty British gangster scene; a genre that made him a household name back in the late 90s thanks to blockbuster hits such as Snatch, Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and RocknRolla. The film tells the story of American expat Mickey Pearson, played expertly by everyone’s favourite Texan Matthew McConaughey, and his thriving marijuana empire in London. When word gets out that Pearson is looking to cash out of the business and go clean, all hell breaks loose. Schemes, blackmail and bribery are all on the cards as the tale of Mickey’s marijuana business unfolds. Alongside McConaughey, you’ll also see Sons of Anarchy‘s Charlie Hunnam, Colin Farrell, Henry Golding, Michelle Dockery and Hugh Grant doing his best David Beckham circa 1998 cockney accent.

Just like Snatch and Lock, Stock, The Gentleman gives us a rare glimpse at what London’s seedy underbelly is really like. Drugs, sex, fine whisky and more than a few f*cks, The Gentleman is Guy Ritchie through and through. Proper Guy Ritchie too, not the Madonna on the beach Guy Ritchie. The only qualm we have with The Gentleman is that we’re not English enough to understand half the cockney slang being thrown about with apparent ease. Regardless, this is a movie that’s more than worth your bees and honey (money).

the hunt

Thanks to Amazon Prime Video, you can check it out now, without having to leave the comfort of your own living room. It’s just one of a number of new releases Amazon is dropping online to stave off the boredom of self-isolation. If you’re looking to make a night of it, why not check out The Invisible Man, Universal Pictures latest horror flick. Or maybe, The Hunt, a new film where twelve strangers wake up in a clearing with no idea where they are — or how they got there, only to find out they’re being hunted for sport by a group of wealthy elites. Whatever your pick, you don’t have to worry about reruns anymore,  crack out the custard and jelly (telly) and settle in. Amazon Prime Video has got your back.

Lovely jubbly.
