  • Gotti

    Gotti

    ★½

    The editing was painful to experience.

  • McQueen

    McQueen

    ★★★★★

    I love McQueen. Though I never knew him, I miss him.

  • Pitch Perfect 3

    Pitch Perfect 3

    ★★½

    Kinda tone deaf. Empty and lacking soul, and the landing of the jokes ... meh.

  • Drew Michael

    Drew Michael

    ★★

    I made it half way through and that was a struggle - what a whiny irritating project. Interesting idea, but he should get used to talking in a room with no one laughing.

  • The Beguiled

    The Beguiled

    ★★½

    Nowhere near as good as the original. A flat Xerox copy.

  • Murder on the Orient Express

    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★★★★

    I really have never warmed to Hercule Poirot as a character before, but this movie really made him much more attractive as a character, and Branagh's direction made Agatha Christie's story seem so much more lively than I have seen it in the past.

  • Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

    Hannah Gadsby: Nanette

    ★★★★★

    Required viewing. Funny, on point, impassioned, and brilliant.

  • Girls Trip

    Girls Trip

    ★★★½

    I went on a bit of a rollercoaster with this one. I liked it, then didn't, and by the end, I really liked the characters.

  • Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts

    Warren Ellis: Captured Ghosts

    ★★★★★

    I watch this every so often because it is about one of my favourite writers.

  • Fist Fight

    Fist Fight

    ★★★

    Mostly meh. But the song with the daughter rocked! And the inappropriate guidance counsellor.

  • The Hitman's Bodyguard

    The Hitman's Bodyguard

    ★★★

    Entertaining enough, but ti did start to drag after a while. It would be nice now to see Jackson play something really different.

  • 10 Years

    10 Years

    ★★

    Yawn.
