    Atomic Blonde

    ★★★½

    Nothing overly original, but decent action scenes that were well choreographed. Charlize Theron carries this film and was excellent.

  • A Star Is Born

    A Star Is Born

    ★★★★½

    A Star Is Born was hard hitting, with tremendous music and excellent performances from Cooper and Gaga. Both shoo-ins for Oscar nominations I'm sure.

    Competently directed with some lovely close up shots, my only qualm would be, the story I felt was a little cliched but highly recommended overall.

    Captain Phillips

    ★★★★½

    I am baffled as to why an Oscar nomination has eluded Tom Hanks for his portrayal of Captain Phillips.

    This does not sit well with me. Hanks was remarkable.

  • Birdman

    Birdman

    ★★★★★

    What a perfect way to kick off 2015 with an incredible film like Birdman. It's sometimes dangerous going in to the cinema with your expectations significantly high because there will be occasions where you will be let down, no concerns here, believe the hype this film can not be missed, it's perfect. The camerawork is sensational and so amazing to watch, long continuous shots which makes the story even more interesting, a true professional at work.

    The acting was on…
