    Handsome Devil

    ★★★★

    Funny, sweet, sad: recommend. A bit of a Dead Poets' Society vibe here, though will not make you sob uncontrollably...I don't think.

    Also Andrew Scott is a national treasure and possibly also an actual cinnamon roll and must be protected at all costs.

  • Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    Kingsman: The Golden Circle

    ★★★★

    "These go up to 11" - my reaction to this film, which I watched almost immediately after the first. This one is better, I think?

    Things I enjoyed:
    -the opening car chase
    -Elton John (Wednesday night's alright for fighting too, now)
    -Julianne Moore (but basically the entire cast, let's be fair)
    -everything about the Statesmen
    -Eggsy's NBD relationship with royalty

    Things I did not enjoy:
    -that landmine
    -the tracker planting scene. Really?
    -not having a glass of whisky to hand, obviously this will be remedied during the DVD repeat viewing

    Single White Female

    ★★★½

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    So, things we should learn from this film:
    - never get a housemate while on the rebound
    - never let your girlfriend go down on you until you have proof it actually is your girlfriend
    - don't get a puppy if you live in a high rise (cats are fine though)
    - if your friend is copying your style she may be trying to turn you into her literal twin
    - Jennifer Jason Leigh is NOT, I repeat NOT, Ally…

    The Lesson

    ★★★★

    This was great: I was gripped all the way through and Margita Gosheva is excellent. Also, lessons to be learned:
    - never take out a loan
    - from anyone
    - ever
    - that's basically it
