    The Mummy

    ★★½

    Okay, I was at least somewhat surprised that this film had some scenes that I liked.
    Sofia Boutella's Ahmanet was a welcome bit to the film but seriously, this is simply not something Tom Cruise should star in.
    I did like Russell Crowe in this too.
    That's it for the positive stuff, the rest will all go down-hill.
    Weak script that is super predictable with the wrong mix of action and humour if you ask me.
    The story's not dark…

    Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales

    ★★★

    This latest and hopefully final installment of the Pirates franchise is somewhat of a return to form.
    But seeing the post credits scene, that unfortunately doesn't seem to be the case.
    Dead Men Tell No Tales has some pretty sloppy writing but compared to the previous film it's miles better.
    I felt it brought back somewhat of that old feeling that made the original trilogy, especially Curse being easily the very best, so enjoyable to watch.

    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.
