    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★½

    Did this movie play Fleetwood Mac's 'The Chain' TWICE and skip the bass solo both times!?!

    ★½

    Further proving the theory that the more serious a Spielberg movie is, the less likely it will be a good movie.

    Tower Heist

    ★★½

    It's easy to imagine that in a few years time the following conversation will happen in hundreds of homes:

    "So did you just go to bed when you came in?"

    "Actually no, I turned on the TV and ended up watching this crappy movie."

    "What was it?"

    "Oh, it was called Penthouse Robbery or Apartment Theft or something."

    "Any good?"

    "I can't remember any of it, but yeah it was actually pretty ok!"


    Tower Heist - adequately watchable

  • Never Let Me Go

    Never Let Me Go

    ★★★★½

    Beautiful and tragic; Never Let Me Go is the type of film which creeps up on you and leaves you devastated for hours afterwards. Romanek's take on Kazuo Ishiguro's novel is note perfect - capturing the writer's ability to never force the story, he bravely allows for the impact of the tale be told through the delicate and muted performances of his excellent cast.

    Sobering yet essential viewing.
