    The House with a Clock in Its Walls

    ★★★½

    Other than finding the main kid quite irritating at times, I thought this was a pretty decent scary kids film.

    For the first half I felt it was ok, not great but decent enough to keep me interested, but once the villain turned up it got really interesting, and more so as it went into the finale, even if that did produce the most horrifying visual image of Jack Black to ever grace the cinema screen.

    ★★★

    Will I buy it?
    No.

    ★★★½

    This is probably the first Aardman film to leave me feeling a little disappointed. That said, it is good it’s just not as good as their other productions. I love Aardman, and have done since I was a kid. So who knows, perhaps my own anticipation was my downfall. In fairness though, if a film left me disappointed but I also still liked it that’s pretty good, right?

    Will I buy it?
    Maybe. But I won’t be in a rush to do so.

    A problem I now have with the MCU is this; if Dr Strange becomes a member of the Avengers then how can they ever have a sizeable threat? Or any threat for that matter? He can turn back time and alter reality itself. He'll be like "Sit down lads, eat your shawarma. I got this.")
