    The Night Before 2015

    ★★★ Watched 23 Nov, 2016

    In an attempt to force me out of the house to do some Christmas shopping I put this on...but then Michael Shannon turned up and I had to watch the whole thing. It's true that you can't polish a turd, but you can certainly Michael Shannon it. Sort of a remake of A Christmas Carol, but with aweful hip hop karaoke.

  • Into the Forest

    Men are rubbish. Women are awesome.

    Total wish fulfilment fantasy stuff, I mean who doesn't want to be Amy Adams.

  • Doctor Strange

    Doctor Strange 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 30 Oct, 2016

    There was a bit during the New York sequence where I let out an audible WOW! I get that truly great CGI is the stuff that you don't even realise is CGI, but the visuals in this movie were just imaginative next level shit. I've sat on the sidelines during years of Harry Potter and at last I get to believe in magic. Welcome to the Marvel Universe, Doctor Strange and your fucking rad cape!

  • Black Mass

    ★★½ Watched 29 Oct, 2016

    Found it hard to care about this, Depp was good to be fair but otherwise meh.

  • Bridge of Spies

    Bridge of Spies 2015

    Watched 15 Oct, 2016

    I knew this was going to be boring, but I was asleep after the first three hours. Tom Hanks Talking To People: The Movie. Seeing the Berlin Wall being built was cool I guess, but if the most intresting thing your film has to offer can easily be beat by old episodes of Grand Designs...

  • Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials

    Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials 2015

    ★★★ Watched 07 Sep, 2016

    Wife caught me watching this and shook her head - but if you've been paying attention you already know I'm a YA bitch! This one felt more like Hungry Games than I'd have liked, but there is a section that goes full on videogames with blatant The Last Of Us clicker enemies and some Uncharted platforming - I'm a videogame bitch too tho so fine with me. Pollo Chicken man is up in this, plus the love sick girl out…

    John Goodman's heavy breathing...proper creepy.

    ★★★ Watched 20 Aug, 2016

    Bit disappointed in this one, I think Stranger Things snuck in and stole its thunder. Will teach me not to miss films in the cinema. Shannon still a captivating watch....

  • The Lobster

    The Lobster 2015

    The old 'boy meets girl' story told in a new way.

  • The Visit

    It's all fun and games until Pop Pop shits himself.

  • The Walk

    The Walk 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Aug, 2016

    Perfect example of a film managing to completely win me over in the second half. The missteps at the start replaced by bold confidence later, how apt. The ending managing to walk the tightest of lines too. Sighs of relief all round.
