    Ghostbusters 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2016

    Some of the jokes fell a bit flat, and the film relies a little too much on slapstick at times, but you know what? That didn't matter one bit. The new Ghostbusters made me feel like a kid again and I came out grinning from ear to ear.

    Independence Day: Resurgence 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 26 Jun, 2016

    Lacks the heart and spirit of the original but the spectacle is most certainly there. 

    I also found the CGI a bit jarring, sloppy and obvious, which I know may sound a bit of a stupid thing to say considering the subject matter, but when the first film 20 years ago had more "realistic" looking special effects than this one does it just reeks of laziness. 

    A good thing though that I can at least say is that this fortunately…

    Really funny, entertaining movie. Emma Stone is great - pretty, smart, sarcastic, witty - the perfect casting choice. Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are brilliant as the most awesome parents ever!

    Outstanding film, with a fantastic performance from Sam Rockwell, who manages to keep the audience gripped despite being the only actor on screen for pretty much the whole film. By far his best film.
