    Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn)

    ★★★

    Birds of Prey is a great representation of Harley Quinn.

    In that it's unfocused and takes a while to get to the point, falling into being entertaining every so often.

    There's a lot of engagement from the cast; they're just not given much to do.

    If the film is a 3/5, Robbie and especially McGregor are 4/5. Ewan in particular is great as the narcissistic Black Mask, even if the film doesn't make the most of him.

    RoboCop 2

    ★★

    The sequel cyborgs are like my GCSE coursework. I knew which one I wanted to use straight away but had to make some clearly poorer designs to show some working out.

    Flirts with cohesion, but can't compare to the drive or vision of the original.

    Cain is bigger, bulkier, and less classy; an unnecessary brute. He's in the right film.

    ★★★½

    If you list everything that a good Bond film needs, it’s present and correct. This is also Craig at his most Bondian and he’s great to watch. Given the OK to have a bit more fun, he’s clearly building on and enjoying the changes brought over from Skyfall. His niche has been discovered; in the vein of Connery or Dalton rather than Moore or Brosnan, and it works well.

    The bothersome thing is that despite including everything…
