    Annabelle: Creation

    ★★★½

    Annabelle Creation was a decent 7/10. Miles better than the first Annabelle movie, it's set in the 50's and I was a bit confused when Anthony LaPaglia began playing Queen songs in the middle of the night. But then I realised I could hear the end credits of Atomic Blonde playing on the screen next door!

    It's creepy enough and the two main child leads are both very good. It happily washed away the taste of shit that was left by its wholly abysmal predecessor! Still not a patch on either of the Conjuring movies though, both of which I rate very highly.

    ★★★★

    Atomic Blonde was a good 8/10, loads of cool violence and very sweary. Double and triple crosses aplenty! Nice story structure too.

    Wow! Wow! And thrice wow!
    Thirty years of waiting for this has been well worth it. George Miller has surpassed every single expectation I ever had for Mad Max 4, with an incredible event movie in every sense of the word.
    Imagine the last 20 minutes of Mad Max 2, times 10, it's really THAT exciting.

    Honest to god, I've never felt such excitement watching a film, it literally does not let up on the insane action - which is…

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

    A small ensemble piece set within the confines of a radio station, this is a very unexpected horror film that delivers real scares. Extremely well written and acted, it plays out kinda like the old Orson Welles War Of The Worlds radio broadcast. However the execution is unique and makes for a most rewarding 90 mins.

    Apparently this is based on a book, which I would now love to read.
