    ★★★

    Just not as good as the inimitable Thor: Ragnarock - it really did feel like Taika was given a lot of rope with this one - but I totally enjoyed it none the less.

    The Good Liar

    ★★★½

    A good yarn (and a safe one to watch with the parents or in-laws during the holidays) although I kept waiting for it to pick up the pace a bit after a measured start and it never quite did. It was a shame Ian McKellen couldn't keep up with Helen Mirren, but then who can.

    ★★★★

    Had an absolute blast watching this with my boys aged 7 and 11. First saw it years ago and enjoyed it at the time but was surprised by how much fun the whole thing still is.  Will Smith in absolute mega movie star mode throughout.

    ★★

    I thought the boys (7 and 11) would be into this one but it seems it fell a bit flat. "Not as cool as the books" according to the 11 year old... so maybe encourage your kids to read the books instead?

    Note: this was officially a proud Dad moment, I had began to wonder if either of them would ever enjoy reading fantasy like I do.
