    This is now one of my favourite French-language films.
    Great story!

  • Atomic Blonde

    Atomic Blonde

    ★★★★

    The marketing labelled it as the "first female 007" film. I think that does the film a disservice. It most certainly is not a James Bond film, as it lacks the wit and light-hearted feel of most Bond flicks. It is an excellent film in its own right, with more of a "first female John Wick" feel to it.
    Charlize Theron delivers a dark, gritty performance, that is both awe-inspiring and a little terrifying.
    Also a great supporting performance by James McAvoy, and excellent cinematography (see: the car chase shot).

    Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

    ★★★½

    Ben Affleck playing Ben Affleck; Jesse Eisenberg playing Jesse Eisenberg; Jeremy Irons NOT playing Michael Caine, and finally, Zack Snyder playing Zack Snyder. And yet….there were parts of this film that I actually enjoyed. It is certainly no Dark Knight trilogy, but I'll probably stick around to see if this really is just an opening act for some much more memorable Justice League films.

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens

    ★★★★

    Lots of good fun, and some wonderful nostalgia. Is the basic plot a little stale? Yes. Is Carrie Fischer's botox on full display? You betcha. But all in all, a good science fiction romp that sets things up nicely for the next two instalments in this new trilogy.
