    I think I need to rewatch this one but I'd probably lend it off someone to do so. 

    (Like pretty much all of Ben Wheatley's films, I find I don't quite know whether I like them or not first time round and so decide I need a rewatch to determine how I feel but ultimately don't get round to the second viewings. I still have Kill List in its cellophane, as I decided £3 was reasonable for my second viewing.…

    Normally I'd buy this on release day but I'm trying to be sensible and budget myself so I'll wait till the Disney BOGOF offer, as I am with Rogue One and Doctor Strange. 

    (Absolutely loved it. Ah, so much awesomeness to list but one thing I'll say is Drax, my god, he stole the show. He's brilliant. And so's the film. More of this from Marvel please.)

    Probably a day of release job in all fairness. 

    (What an absolutely mind bending and bonkersly fun ride from M(arvel) C Escher.

    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.")
