    ★★★½

    I really liked the idea, I liked the characters, and the cinematography too (except the naff green-screen boat shots). But I think it needed stricter editing — things took a long time to develop. More importantly the ending just didn't happen, I wanted more.

    ★★★★½

    A quality sequel! A nice balance of last time, new story, and Edinburgh

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★½

    I think I should be a warship designer. "Hey Bob, let's put the brains of the ship in a glass bubble on the bottom - I can't envisage ANY scenarios where that might go wrong"

    Does what it says on the tin... Boom!

    Lagaan: Once Upon a Time in India

    ★½

    So I seriously founds this and thought ‘A movie about the beginning of cricket in India - yay!’.

    But just to reinforce all the cricket stereotypes & cliches ("play for 5 days for a draw?!") it then proceeds to drag on and on and on and just fucking shoot me. Quite a lot like a five day test match between two teams who are both so desperate to avoid losing they can't get their heads around the concept of just playing the damn game.

    The random Bollywood dancing & singing — all good. But badly needed a ruthless editor to make it about 90 minutes shorter.
