    The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe

    ★★★½

    This hasn't aged too well. The effects are dated, the dialogue is cringeworthy (at times) and the acting from the four children is mostly wooden, with Peter and Susan being void of any sort of charisma.

    However, the story is still a classic of the fantasy genre and the score is magnificent. It's a solid children's fantasy flick.

    I'd be fascinated to see another filmmaker have a go at adapting the Narnia novels as they had the chance of being up there with the Lord of the Rings of the genre.

    Star Wars: The Last Jedi

    ★★★½

    Wow. Almost 24 hours later and I still don’t know how I feel about THE LAST JEDI. I’ve never been more conflicted about a film. There’s so much to love in the THE LAST JEDI. Plenty of great scenes and interesting ideas. I’m thrilled that Rian Johnson had the confidence to avoid playing it safe and pushed the series in a new direction.

    However, for everything I liked about THE LAST JEDI there was something I really disliked. Rian Johnson…
