    The Disaster Artist

    ★★★★½

    "People are very strange these days! Oh, hi Betty."

    The Disaster Artist is the true story of our own modern day Ed Wood, Tommy Wiseau, and how he and Greg Sistero became friends and moved to Hollywood to pursue their dream of becoming movie stars. Instead they produced what may well be the worst movie ever made, The Room.

    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…
