    That ending bailed out a fairly poor show. Ambrose vs Owens was excellent, but everything else, most notably the main event, wasn't great. Things happening at the end made it better

  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    Fairly terrible storyline but a lot of fun and didn't take itself too seriously. Felt like older Bond and the last two Mission: Impossible movies, which is good.

    I think to call this one of the greatest films ever is a wild exaggeration. Very good, yes, but ultimately there is no real plot and stuff just happens because it happens. Samuel L. Jackson was superb, and everyone gave very good performances, but Bruce Willis' character and story felt almost pointless, at least at face value. Of the five Tarantino films I've seen (this, Reservoir Dogs, Kill Bill Volumes 1 and 2, Django Unchained), this was definitely the weakest.

    Influential? Yes. Different? Absolutely. 9/10 on the IMDb? No chance.

    Predictable. Boring. Dull.

    Saw 'Dawn' back-to-back with its superb predecessor, 'Rise of the POTA', so it's safe to say I was expecting big things. That was a mistake.

    The whole first hour was basically pointless and it all followed the same routine: Thing needs doing, something stops thing from being done, thing gets done eventually. Rinse and repeat.

    The only reason it gets a generous 2 stars is because of how magnificent it looked and how well it was shot…
