    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★½

    Check out the review from Buddy..it just sums up Vol. 2 perfectly.
    Forced humour, really way too much forced "laughter" in scenes that haven't earned it.
    A weak story and, what I thought to be a stupid, plot.
    Baby Groot ... what the hell happened there?
    He doesn't look nearly as cute as at the end of GotG!
    Only at the end there are some touchy feely scenes that are truly beautiful.
    Oh yeah, my rating also has to do…

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    ★★½

    This is my 1st visit to the J.K. Rowling universe.
    I have not and will not watch any of the Harry Potter films but based on what I heard I wanted to give this a try.
    Visually it has some nice things going for it although the CG animals didn't all look particularly good.

  • Strange Days

    Strange Days

    ★★★★½

    What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street

    ★★★★

    One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
    Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
    I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
