    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!

    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.
