    "I look like somebodys homophobic aunt"

    This made me laugh so goddamn much. Vulgar one liners and brutal action scenes put this on a close level to Kingsman for me. I don't think i've enjoyed a Melissa McCarthy role this much.. ever. Also, Jason Statham did something different for once.. nice!

    Ex Machina

    ★★★★½

    This needed a wider release. It's upsetting that I had to experience this from my couch rather than a cinema screen because I couldn't find a session near me. Ex Machina might just be one the better films of 2015. The performances are fantastic and it keeps you hooked until the very end. I couldn't have guessed what would happen if I tried as hard as I could.

    ★★★★★

    Gone Girl is brilliant. David Fincher continues to prove that he is one of the best directors in the film industry today. It's enthralling from start to finish with it's fantastic performances and plot twists that change at all the right times. When a film like this leaves you pondering and speechless during the end credits it means it's done it's job perfectly.

    ★★★★

    "So that makes it a hate crime"

    I went into this with high expectations and they were very much met with enjoyment.. until the last half hour. I wasn't very fond of the backstory reveal of David and the way the film ended. It felt very forced compared to how unbelievably cool the first hour was. The Guest is at it's strongest when it's dealing with the interactions of the main characters and dealing with their problems. It could have been great but I just felt it lost itself. Either way, the soundtrack fucking rules and thats enough for me.
