    Charlie's Angels

    ★★½

    Granted, I probably should’ve been watching MOS or BvS when spending my evening tweeting #ReleaseTheSnyderCut, but this film proved to be a great background noise. 

    This was actually fine. Very dated but I’m sure at the time it was worth the hype. 

    I still think the 2019 release was a better take on the characters.

  • Dune

    Dune

    ★★½

    Think I was expecting a lot more. 

    Was looking forward to the new film and I feel I probably would’ve been better off going into it blind but still, this was good sci fi with some of the worst, badly aged CG I’ve ever seen.

  • Gone with the Wind

    Gone with the Wind

    ★★★

    Definitely a film I’m glad to have seen in its entirety but not one I can say I overly enjoyed. 

    Way too long for its own good. I mean the gist of the whole thing could be summed up quite quickly. 

    Still, I wasn’t bored so I can’t complain.

  • Admission

    Admission

    ★★

    I figured this was going to be a Ronan-Com but there’s little to nothing funny about this. 

    It was entertaining I guess and a somewhat decent story but overall this was a big disappointment.

  • Little Monsters

    ★★

    This was...fine. 

    The poster is right to not necessarily give away the story. In fact if you went in knowing nothing you’d probably enjoy it a lot more. 

    Lots of Taylor Swift sing a longs though so that’s good.

  • Earthquake Bird

    Earthquake Bird

    ★★½

    I watched for Alicia and I wasn’t disappointed. 

    But if it wasn’t for Ms. Vikander this would’ve been you’re typical run of the mill Netflix release. 

    The story is decent, and the soundtrack is very fitting, just don’t expect a great movie.

  • Falling Inn Love

    Falling Inn Love

    Typical Netflix nonsense. 

    This doesn’t really have any redeemable qualities. It’s extremely predictable and the cast didn’t add a whole lot to it.

    ★★½

    Think I was expecting more. 

    The animation is great, but the story wasn’t really anything knew and the characters just came across as annoying at first. 

    Still, a worthy addition to a Christmas line up.

    I mean I guess the view was ok...

  • American Reunion

    American Reunion

    ★★½

    The worst of the 4. The humour and story are still good, it just doesn’t work as well when they’re supposed to be older.

  • Charlie's Angels

    Charlie's Angels

    ★★★

    Look, I don’t think anyone was expecting a classic here. There’s some good stunts and lots of action, it’s all quite harmless. 

    There is a Ben Affleck / Batman joke that gets it bonus points from me.

  • Little Women

    Little Women

    ★★½

    You’re either going to love this or find this to be 2 hours of sleepiness. 

    Without a doubt, one of the most boring films I’ve seen at the cinema this year. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a well made film with a great cast but watchable is the most positive word I can use to describe this. 

    The story jumps from past to present multiple times. Everyone I saw this with all complained about this. Slightly poorly handled. 

    I guess if you like Gerwigs work then you should love this, I sincerely hope that you do.
