    V for Vendetta

    ★★★★

    This was not the film we deserved in 2005, yet in modern climate today, 13 years on this is the film modern cinema needs. Someone rerelease this on the cinema with a big push. We didn't need this in 2005 and it was greeted with sneers and apathy. Compared to some of the bunk released today this is top notch. Visually stunning, well crafted and acted. Great action with a plot and a point as well. Watch it again!!!

    Freeman not his usual spectacular self. He didn't have a lot to act with being honest. Most of his acting looked like not acting or responding at all and he looked most uncomfortable in any scene where he was required to run. Direction was pretty average too offering us nothing new.

    So why 3 stars?

    This evening I went to movie mystery Monday at my local cinema. Pay three quid and you could see anything. You don't know what…

    Iron Man 2

    ★★★½

    Much like the incredible hulk this received some bad press upon release but actually, now at the end of phase 3 is actually a better film than we gave it credit for. A much better film than ant man and the wasp, and both the first two Thor movies. Better than avengers 2 as well. This has a better standing in the marvel universe than I remembered.

    So what made this movie better than I remembered? Looking back over the…
