    X-Men: Days of Future Past

    The best X-Men movie(not counting Logan), how did we end up with Apocalypse after this!

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping

    ★★★★

    A modern comedy classic that I’d somehow prejudged as something that wouldn’t appeal to me. The songs are outstanding and it’s how close it is to the truth regarding the modern music industry that makes it so good.

    ★★★★★

    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.

    ★★★★★

    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…
