    Tau

    ★★½

    Tau is about Julia, a thief and seductress living in the near future. One day she is kidnapped by an evil tech genius who locks her into his high tech home, controlled by a powerful A.I. system called Tau.

    This had a great opening, stylish visuals and the premise was interesting. I thought it would be Saw meets Iron Man, but even though it shares similarities with both it quickly falls flat in the writing.

    Godzilla: City on the Edge of Battle

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    ★★★★½

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
