    ★★½

    As much as I grew up listening to Queen and loving their music this film was disappointing. It felt rushed, particularly the first section of the film and when the story did start to develop it only scratched the surface. Rami Malik did a good job as Freddie. The best thing is the music.

  • Creed II

    Creed II

    ★★★½

    I love the Rocky franchise, it’s full of cliches, montage and you know exactly what you are getting...After all as a fan you wouldn’t want the formula to be broken. This film was full of nostalgia, it was great seeing old faces from previous Rocky films, the most surprising was  Bridgett Nielsen...The best kept secret throughout when it was being being filmed. The film felt like it was rushed through the narrative and could have gone a bit deeper. It’s probably actually 3 stars but got the extra half for nostalgia.

    It deserves one star just for the cast but that’s about it. If you want to watch a terrible film and dedicate 1hr 30mins of your life to it, this is it! Even the colour grade in one particular scene looked off.

    I actually forgot how good this film is. It has story, character and plays on that all important emotion. It won best picture and I will leave you to argue whether it is action or an historical drama. It is Rome and gladiatorial times depicted with a Hollywood spin.
