    Captain America: Civil War 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 02 May, 2016

    Crash! Bang! Wallop! What a video! This is the film to watch if you want to see your favourite superheroes (and some you’re probably only faintly aware of) start fighting each other in a weird photographic snapshot sort of way over…err… Well, who cares? You’ll almost certainly have forgotten why this is happening by the time Spiderman appears, but it’s still good fun with a solid airport sequence that almost makes up for the incredibly slow globetrotting build up.

    The Jungle Book 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Apr, 2016

    "I won't run from you any more," says a defiant Mowgli before...err...running and jumping away. Fair enough. This is the live action version of The Jungle Book, where man cub Mowgli has been raised by wolves and must now leave the jungle or face the wrath of bizarrely obsessed and vengeful tiger, Shia Khan. 

    It's a spirited film and well told, but all a bit too episodic in the end. And now he meets this animal. And now he meets this animal. Etc. It's a small criticism as it's a beautiful film and very enjoyable during its running time.

It's a five star film in the same way that The Other Guys, reviewed by Peter Bradshaw in the Guardian, is not a five star film. But sometimes you watch a movie and can't stop smiling. It entertains. It has you sitting back and going, "Yeah, why can't all films be like this?" And that's what The Guest did to me. Sure, it…

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Oct, 2014

    In the style of Matt, because why not. Saw this with my cinema card and also cos the poster looks damn cool. Look at it. Like some seventies sepia stuff and I'm always down for that. Opens on Gyllenhaal thin as hell. Hair slicked back like some creepy dude. No money but clearly owns a comb. Does bad shit with this grin. Freaked me out a bit but whatever, it's cool.
    He drives this shitty car all over the place,…
