    O.J.: Made in America


    Watched over three days, this is a stunning documentary that links the history of late 20th century civil rights with the rise and fall of its main subject.

    If you enjoyed American Crime Story this film provides fantastic context and is a compelling tale within its own right. A well deserved Best Documentary Oscar winner.

    Another social media goes horror movie.

    Unfriended is still the best by far, but this has a couple of effective moments.

    Friend Request


    Unlike Unfriended, Friend Request almost makes Facebook an afterthought. It also fails to play into the speed at which social media works.

    Assassin's Creed

    There is a scene in the film where two characters are talking in a secret facility and behind them is a red fire alarm and it made me wonder what would happen if someone broke the glass and pressed the button?

    Would all the prisoners and security guards have to wait out in the car park for the local fire service to go into their secret base and check it over before giving the all clear?

    This was my sole takeaway from the film.
