    Lights Out

    ★★★

    Despite it being fairly generic, the movie does a good job of playing on childhood insecurities and fear of the dark. Some clever camera work and some good jump scares make it worth a watch, but ultimately it's still a little predictable.

  • Rings

    Rings

    ★★★

    Not a bad continuation of the Ring saga... some interesting ideas, and Galecki isn't too bad in a straight role for a change.

    What lets it down is the predictability of the "twists". I kind of forgave them as it's been a while since I watched the Ring movies... and especially the Japanese originals which still blow these Western remakes out of the water.

    Watch, enjoy, but don't expect anything scary or thrilling.

    Warcraft

    ★★★½

    A thoroughly enjoyable fantasy adventure, with some faithfully created locations from World of Warcraft. The ending is telegraphed quite early, but still worth a watch. Whether you're a seasoned WoW player, or just like fantasy movies, you should enjoy this.

  • Terminator Genisys

    Terminator Genisys

    ★★★½

    Actually not bad and they did a good job of recreating certain points from the original movie. Emilia Clarke did a great job as Sarah Connor too.

    Watch this after Judgement Day & ignore Rise of the Machines.
