    Wide Awake

    Only completist losers like me are watching this early Shyamalan effort, and well lucky the rest of the world because this is terrible.

    The weirdest part is that the biggest weakness from a man who went on to make such tightly scripted films is the loosely constructed plot. Lots of things happen, but they all seem to be in isolation, with little coherence to what goes on before or after. The attempts at humour as well all land dreadfully flat.…

    Creed II

    ★½

    Pretty disappointing follow-up to what was only a decent first ‘Creed’ movie in my opinion. Something about Fathers and sons, something about Rocky IV and a very tiresome ‘men proving themselves’ plot. All of them somehow feel underwritten. It’s all very forgettable.

    Paradise Lost: The Child Murders at Robin Hood Hills

    ★★½

    An interesting documentary albeit very frustrating. The filmmakers seem 100% convinced that the three are innocent but you feel like you're never given enough evidence one way or the other to decide for yourself. A quick research on Wiki suggests that even on acquittal it wasn't exactly a clear admission of innocence. It's an intriguing film though and I'll certainly watch the follow-up films.

    RoboCop

    ½

    Remember the original 'Robocop'? An action film that also managed to be clever and satirical with fantastic quotable dialogue? Yeah this is none of those things, this is shit.
