    War for the Planet of the Apes

    ★★★½

    That ending tho...

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    Well worth a watch. It's not going to win any awards but its at least as watchable as the rest of this movie franchise.

  • Skyline

    Skyline

    I rewatched this film for the first time again since I saw it in the cinema, and that ending is truly awful. Some decent CG (apart from the flowing fucking brains) couldn't help a pretty poor story.

    Its not the worst movie ever made, but its worse than I remember.

    I have to drop a star which means this gets relegated to the 1 star basement.

  • A Quiet Place

    ★★★★

    Really enjoyed this one. Definitely one of my favourite horror movies.

  • Tomb Raider

    Tomb Raider

    ★★★

    Not a bad way to spend an hour. Pretty average movie with some decent set pieces.

  • My All American

    ★★★

    Decent enough movie.

  • The Cloverfield Paradox

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★★

    Decent enough movie with a great cast. Maybe not enough of a solid idea and too many loose endings. Worth a watch as its on netflix though.

  • Darkest Hour

    Darkest Hour

    ★★★★

    Gary Oldman is superb. Its just a small slice of Churchill which is why it works because its hard to ignore the rest of his history.

  • John Wick: Chapter 2

    John Wick: Chapter 2

    ★★★★

    I really enjoyed this movie. Not quite as much as the first one but well worth a watch for non stop action. I somehow forgive things in these two movies that I wouldn't in other action movies but I guess that's what this movie is all about.

  • The Bourne Identity

    The Bourne Identity

    ★★★½

    One of the very very very few times where the movie series is better than the books. I love the music in this, the first of the series, and the action and plot was still fresh without the need for tanks and the like from the last.

  • The Lego Batman Movie

    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★½

    Very decent movie. Great cast and a fun little watch.

  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies

    ★★★

    Starts well, dies in the middle but the end is decent.
