    ★★★½

    Really enjoyable Woods set horror with nice performances from the four main cast members. One or two plot differences from the excellent book, but it was a faithful adaptation.

  • Power Rangers

    Power Rangers

    ★★½

    Five annoying teens take forever to become best buds or something, for some films I wish they would just go for the original cheesy fun, this tries to mix it with an outdated kind of emo dark annoying trying to find yourself bullshit.  90 minutes of excruciating build up, I was dying for a decent action sequence.

    Best things are the effects they looked great, and Elizabeth Banks Who was OTT and fun, she was the only one who seemed to understand what she was in.

    Plus why was Red Rangers Dad driving straight towards the giant melting Robot that was destroying the town? Fucking idiot.

    I watched this in Glasgow's GFT last night with a room of like-minded people who appreciate the cheesy wonder if this excellent sci-fi.

    The one liners were cheered and received mighty laughs, which made the film even better.

    I even thought the special effects stood up and the eye popping scenes were great.

    If you get the chance to see it in a cinema do so, it really enhances the film greatly.

    Highlight of the film was my brother hitting the giggles for about 5 minutes and starting me off.

    Great stuff.

  • Paths of Glory

    Paths of Glory

    ★★★★★

    An absolutely devastating WW1 film about a group of soldiers asked to perform an impossible mission by their ruthlessly ambitious captain. Three innocent men must stand trial for cowardice, defended by their Colonel a brilliant Kirk Douglas.

    Showing the futility of war and the position many soldiers must have been in being lead by clueless and ruthless leaders.

    This film blew me away.
