    Independence Day: Resurgence 2016

    ★½ Watched 28 Jun, 2016

    Absolute hollow garbage. I wanted the aliens to wipe out the entire cast and spare me from anymore "acting". It's practically the first movie, minus the likable characters or compelling conflict. It is a mess. There's nothing remotely redeeming about it. Even Goldblum somehow manages to 'meh' the hell out of an acting job. Goldblum?! For god's sake. I didn't think it was possible.
    The 'newbie' actors were infuriating to watch, no depth or charisma whatsoever. The humour is of the lowest kind, it's embarassing. Emmerich's movies make me hate CGI. Stop these belated sequels. Call it a day.

    The Conjuring 2 2016

    ★★★ Watched 18 Jun, 2016

    I wanted to love this. Big fan of James Wan, but it was far too over the top, predictable and just too heavy with horror set pieces, many of which were gratuitous and just made no logical sense. The Crooked Man? Come on!?
    It just felt removed from the world of the first movie.
    Lovely cameo from Marilyn Manson as the nun too. Couldn't unsee that one.

    I did love the one scene with the family listening to the possessed…

    Finally an oscar nominee with big brash balls. I pray for another Leo/Jonah collaboration.

    A.K.A - Batman ft. Superman: The Rush to Justice League

    So this was the second time seeing this. I wanted to wait to let my mind process the film. I must say the first experience wasn't too great. I wasn't really paying attention for the last 30 minutes as I was too angry from the fight scene. I came out of that with a ★★

    The second showing was actually better ★★★
    A few of the set-ups (Lex Luthor especially)…
