    Suicide Squad

    Like a lot of films these days it was shit.

  • Passengers

    Passengers

    ★★★

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    The sort of story that sci-fi exists for, lots to talk about afterwards, but was surprised by the ending - was thinking how long she'd stick around before jumping back in the sleep pod...maybe give him 5 years, something like that. Or he could wake her back up for a year every 5 years or so. That'd probably be a bit weird for both of them I guess. But she really needed to ultimately not be with him for this to sit right with me.

  • Independence Day: Resurgence

    Independence Day: Resurgence

    ★★★

    This was more dumb fun, whipped along at a cracking pace and I got a little caught up in its self confidence. I mean it actually thinks it's going to get the third part it sets up. Awww bless.

  • Alien: Covenant

    Alien: Covenant

    ★★★

    Lost a star for how badly they messed up that last action scene - such a shame because I was enjoying this a lot more than I was expecting to. Fassbender is great, the violence is brutal and the aliens are creepy as fuck! Uneven, but if you like Sci Fi horror and flute music it's worth a watch...

  • Jason Bourne

    Jason Bourne

    I wish my name was Jason so I could write 'Jason Bored'...but it's Steve. Fuck you Mum and Dad!

  • The Brand New Testament

    The Brand New Testament

    ★★★

    Jeunet and Gilliam in a tumble dryer.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    Film:
    The first one is completely rad, they say that comedy is all about surprise...that and...


    timing!
    Going in to a sequel it needed to try a bit harder to get the laughs, but man was this movie funny. The bit when they did the multiple space jumps was probably my fav thing in the Marvel universe so far! Rockets face! Fuck me that was brilliant! I do love these characters and the warmth they show for each other. Just…

  • Sully

    Sully

    ★★★

    Apart from the film ending like an 80s sitcom (they should have gone to freeze frame after TwoFace brought the house down) and the demonising of the witch hunting committee who melted into Sully fanboys, I thought this was a well handled if somewhat stretched out TV movie.

  • Moana

    Moana

    ★★★

    The Abyss prequel I didn't see coming.

  • Beauty and the Beast

    Beauty and the Beast

    ★★★

    Linda Hamilton did it better...

  • Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

    ★★★½

    Not as good on a rewatch, the first half was dull and the surprise payoff of throwing ALL THE STAR WARS at me felt less impactful. Still, not a bad snack before the next full fat Star Wars meal this Christmas.

  • Don't Breathe

    Don't Breathe

    ★★★

    This wasn't the Mr Magoo reboot we wanted, but it's the one we deserve
