    X-Men: Apocalypse 2016

    ★★★ Watched 16 May, 2016

    There are better and worse films, there are better and worse superhero films, there are better and worse X-Men films. In fact there are better and worse films in this current trilogy of X-Men films. But in a series sixteen years and eight movies old (nine if you must insist on including Deadpool), it seems to me you could do a lot worse than produce a new entry that slots somewhere in the middle.

  • Sing Street

    Sing Street 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Mar, 2016

    A nostalgic glance back at the glorious mid-1980s, its life-shaping music and the heartbreak of being catastrophically incapable of getting off with a fit sixth-former.

  • Oblivion

    Oblivion 2013

    ★★★ Watched 09 Apr, 2013 4

    If you're the kind of person who liked Moon but a) needed every single piece of information explained to you at length and b) didn't think it had enough explosions or Tom Cruise in it, then Oblivion is for you.

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel 2013

    ★★ Watched 13 Jun, 2013 1

    Like Krypton itself, Man Of Steel collapses under the weight of its own excesses, its hollow core the cause of its doom. It's beyond saving.

    That said, fat Laurence Fishburne outjogging a collapsing skyscraper is proper lolz.
