    Pride and Prejudice and Zombies 2016

    ★★★ Watched 04 Feb, 2016

    This film had all the ingredients to make a fun, whimsical film. It had a charming cast, a captivating design and a thrilling premise, however, it failed to deliver on nearly all accounts.

    The cast never really gets to shine as the premise is never fully realized. The fight scenes are weak and shortlived with very few moments of truly inspired choreography. The combination of Austen with paranormal is done so rather clumsily, making both parts feel rushed and underdeveloped.…

    Back to the Future 1985

    Michael J Fox is perfect.
