    Infernal Affairs

    ★★★★½

    This was such a pleasure to re-watch, it's been so long since I've seen it that I actually didn't remember the story all that well! Both of the leads are so good in this, and the story is so good. Lots of tension, great pacing and all around an excellent watch.

  • In Order of Disappearance

    In Order of Disappearance

    ★★★★

    This was a blind watch for me (I think I was spelling something out to find on Netflix, and this ended up looking more interesting and... Stellan Skarsgård is always a yes), and I ended up quite enjoying it.

    Set in Norway and following an everyday man whose son is killed by drug dealers, and he goes looking for answers.

    Interesting mix of the everyday and the criminal life, and is able to through in a fair amount of humour…

    The X Files: I Want to Believe

    ★★★

    Watched to cap off my epic watch/re-watch of The X-Files. I saw this originally in the theatre and didn't like it too much then nor now. But I wanted to watch all the shows and the films, so I did!

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

    ★★★★

    I have very low expectations going into this one, but ended up quite enjoying it. It's target audience is pretty young, which I don't mind but I wish they had cut just a few moments to make it more gender balanced. Overall, a lot of fun and had lightning fast jokes and made me smile a fair amount.
