    You Pick, I Watch

    78/100

    Half coming of age drama, half love letter to the music of the 1980's.
    It's damn funny and personally very relatable, sometimes too much.
    I love how the band evolves in sound and look depending on what music they had listened to.

    Netflix* – Watchlist

    74/100

    There's not really a lot to this, it has the look and feel of a stage play. One location, one actor remaining constant whilst a flow of supporting characters come and go. The writing is great, the performances are superb with the mix of personal & current affairs upping the tempo. I enjoyed the ending but there was plenty of time to go for something more satisfying.

    HORRORx52 (2019)
    Released in 2013

    62/100

    More of a psychological thriller than a true horror, there's no denying that there seems to be an unseen evil at work.
    It has a fairly brutal opening but apart from that the violence and gore are contained to sporadic bursts!
    The film deals with emotional pain, suffering and loss and how it can almost be contagious, a great concept that isn't hurt by the obvious low budget.

    67/100

    This was a pleasant, fun surprise. I had low expectations with it being a McG film but I really enjoyed it.
    It reminded me a lot of the movies I grew up on, like 'The Gate' & 'Fright Night'.

    Films Seen At The Cinema.

    Sat in the cinema with my Force Awakens t-shirt, I was waiting for the rush of nostalgia to hit me (member, member chewbacca?).

    It didn't come. I didn't feel the way I did when I saw Force Awakens.

    It was still awesome to see Darth Vader, the Death Star, *insert spoiler here*, but I never really cared for these other characters, apart from the droid and Donnie Yen, because he's a legit bad ass.

    Maybe…
