    ★½ Watched 12 Jun, 2016

    I was enjoying this up to the point Doom (that was meant to be Doom, right?) stopped popping heads and decided he'd be better off on planet zero. Everything after that was complete and utter shit. The last 10 minutes or so flushed all the good will and build up right down the loo. The Fantasic Four in Sue Storm's stupid blue force bubble circling the rim and then disappearing up the u-bend....with The Thing left floating in the brown toilet water.

    Not sure I'm feeling the message in this movie, what was it? Get a haircut? But that soundtrack tho...

    The Nice Guys 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Jun, 2016

    If I'd not seen most of the good bits in the trailer months ago this would be a straight up four stars! As it was it felt a little too familiar with hardly any surprises, very enjoyable nonetheless.

    William Banzai put the big bank problem in perspective when he said, “If we don’t get rid of the incentive to loot, then the only question is what form the next round of looting will take.”

    Normally I can't get behind a film which has no likeable or relatable characters (Hateful Eight springs to mind), but on reflection the greedheads who saw the apocalypse coming and secretly stocked their basements like survivalist nutcases are at least shot through with personality.…

    Expectations were too high, probably shouldn't have watched Southpaw first. Still, Old Rocky was good to catch up with.
