    ★½

    I really wanted to like this as I am a fan of both Poehler and Fey, but I just didn't find it funny at all. I was bored 30 minutes in.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron

    ★★★

    It's good, but certainly not as good as the first one. I have to admit it felt long in places, too quick in others and the final all out battle act bored me. It's a blockbuster trope that is very over used. Ultron was a poor villain, i thought Quicksilver in X-Men DoFP was so much better than this one, though Scarlet Witch and the Vision were good.

    ★★★★

    A tense and dramatic film, expertly directed by Paul Greengrass, with first rate acting from the cast, in particular from Barkhad Abdi, who more than holds his own against a brilliant Tom Hanks.

    ★★

    After the superb Shaun of the Dead and the terrific Hot Fuzz, I really expected this to be at least pretty good. Unfortunately I was oh so very disappointed by a film lacking in a decent script, phoned in performances and expected to root for a central character who is a complete and utter cock. It also felt too long. This is their Godfather 3.
