    Sicario 2015

    ★★½ Added

    Never particularly involving - briefly rouses interest for two thrilling action sequences but the rest of the film falls into "thing happens, Emily Blunt is kept in the dark about it, demands answers, then next thing happens" - repeat for two hours.

  • The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water

    The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water 2015

    ★★★½ Added

    One of the most bizarre "kids films" you'll ever see, Sponge out of Water is mostly an absolute delight. It's ridiculous, it's hilarious, it has probably my favourite running gag of the year (Plankton's inability to pronounce "team") and it features Matt Berry as a magical dolphin from space. Loses its way slightly with the 3D section at the end but on the whole this is another fine film for Mr Squarepants.

    Possibly some of the clunkiest dialogue ever written, performed in some of the most astonishingly bad accents ever committed to film - and a huge huge waste of the potential of its cast. This gets 1 and a half stars for a couple of good action scenes and half a star for introducing me to the phrase "mfwic"
