  • Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom

    ★★★★

    Probably going to have fan boys crying just like The Last Jedi did  as it dares to take the franchise in a new direction. We’ve had 4 films set on an island it most definitely needed this shake up.

  • Solo: A Star Wars Story

    Solo: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    I enjoyed it more this time, I should have listened to myself after the midnight screening of The Last Jedi, no good comes from the late night screenings. Picked up loads more on this viewing but it’s still just an above average film and no Star Wars film should fall into that category.

    Here’s the problem.
    1977
    1980
    1983
    1999
    2002
    2005
    2015
    2016
    2017
    2018
    I said in my Justice League review the superhero genres was becoming oversaturated and now Disney are going to kill the SW universe chasing the $$’s every year and in this case every 5 months. Make them an event again!!

    Die Hard

    ★★★★★

    I refuse to go and see A Good Day to Die Hard because it looks horrendous so I put the original on whilst waiting for the Oscars to start and its still a classic.

    It highlights what's wrong with modern action movie making. It takes its time to introduce you to all the characters and makes you genuinely care about their fates, it has real action and no CGI or green screen and is thrilling and funny.

    Give me this, the original Lethal Weapon and Speed over the crap that is released week after week at the moment.

  • Nightcrawler

    Nightcrawler

    ★★★★★

    I didn't think there'd be a better film than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, then The Guest came out and it was touch and go for film of the year. Now it's no contest, Nightcrawler is the best film since The Dark Knight.

    Gyllenhaal gives the best performance I've seen since Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York, he's unnerving in every scene, it's the way he stands, looks at people and his voice, it truly is a mesmerising…
