    Even a badly rubber Michael Shannon is a eerily scary Michael Shannon.

    It can't come as a surprise that Michelle Monaghan looks disappointed by the casting choices for this movie.

    I'm always in awe of Peter Sellers whenever I see him in a movie. Here he showcases his wonderful gift for physical comedy - the slow-mo fly kick at the beginning and backwards fall in to the pool are personal favourite moments in this. A nod too to Herbert Lom, who's slow descent in to a Clouseau-induced madness is utterly believable yet very funny - a fine line to tread.

    When Vanilla Ice playing Mark Twain is the funniest thing in your movie you really should reconsider your choice of career. Please Adam, for fuck sake, reconsider.

    It's really hard not to feel sorry for Ian McDiarmid, he does so well with such utterly rubbish material, opposite mainly awful actors (well, Christensen anyway), surrounded by cartoonish CG and, latterly, covered in cheap looking, patchy make-up.
    The more I watch these prequels, the more frustrated I get with the filmmaking and storytelling choices. If the Force Awakens turns out to be better than this, every current indication is that it will be, I don't think I'll be watching…
