    Eddie the Eagle 2016

    ★★★★½ Watched 05 Apr, 2016

    Loved this film, Taron Egerton is completely believable in the role of Michael (Eddie) "The Eagle " Edwards, he brings this true story to life.

    I remember watching the 1988 Olympics and routing for Eddie along with 90% of Britain.

    The addition of Hugh Jackman, as a failed US jumper and Eddies coach, will hopefully make the film more appealing to American audiences than it would have if they had been more biopic like in the storytelling.

    The Divergent Series: Allegiant 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 05 Apr, 2016

    Virginia Madsen is this films only saving grace for which she should gain a best supporting nod, O'Russell's awful direction, terrible framing, dodgy music choices and insistence in casting the same people in his films make this the third in a trilogy of dullness.
