    Gal Gadot is beautiful isn't she?

    ★★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    That grenade bicycle kick aside I loved this movie. There was real emotional weight to Desmond's battle with his own morals and the conflict that engendered amongst his regiment. Some of the scripting was superb, particularly Garfield's heartfelt speech at the court martial. Vince Vaughan was probably miscast; but I loved the dichotomy of the film: 1st half WW2 drama and love story, 2nd half intense blood guts and gore, the first scene of which reminded me of when Forrest Gump steps out from the rain in Vietnam, and the grittiness of which I haven't seen since Band of Brothers. Excellent viewing, go watch it.

    ★★★½

    Doctor Strange, terrible name aside (although I get that they're stuck with it), was really enjoyable to be honest. There was some way overdone CGI scenes, and Mads Mikkelson was horrendously underused, but overall I enjoyed it. Benedict Cumberbatch is basically Robert Downey Jr but with brain surgeon smarts and has an actually OK American accent. Jolly good fun for a couple of hours.

  • Kong: Skull Island

    Kong: Skull Island

    ★★

    She really didn't take enough pictures for an "anti-war photographer". Killer soundtrack though and some cool Apocalypse now vibes.
