    The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★

    Strong opening and some very funny bits, but they really overdid it with attempts to be serious and emotional. Cool idea, but I got bored after a while, and had a nap instead - guess I'm not the target audience!

  • The Young Victoria

    The Young Victoria

    ★★★

    A warm cozy hug of a film. Some really interesting history, especially about Victoria's childhood and her outspoken independence on taking power. Nothing too challenging.

    28 Up

    ★★★★

    The children of 7 Up are now fully fledged adults, and it's getting more interesting seeing how dramatically some have changed since 21, for better or worse. It seems clearer now that the series' premise - that our future personalities are determined from a young age - is not correct at all.

  • The Wind Rises

    The Wind Rises

    ★★★

    As an exercise in beautiful imagery, it's almost unparalleled. The storyline is touching and memorable, although the pacing is all over the place. Hope you like planes.
