  • Cinderella

    Cinderella

    ★★★

    Probably not.

    (But it was alright though. My only quibble is when she tells the prince her name she introduces herself as Cinderella, not Ella. Even though her name has been established as Ella and the Cinder version as an insult. This is bloody Belle-calling-Beast-Beast-instead-of-bothering-to-find-out-his-actual-name territory. Oh and she also tells him that she doesn't know if the glass slipper will fit. What?!)

  • The Beguiled

    The Beguiled

    ★★★½

    I'll probably buy my Nana the DVD for Christmas along with War for the Planet of the Apes, not that they relate it's just I bought her the last two Apes films for previous Christmases. And I know she likes the Clint Eastwood Beguiled. 


    Anyway, good film. I don't remember much from the original but I do recall it being decent. I may need a rewatch in order to compare. 

    This is an unusual review.

  • Doctor Strange

    Doctor Strange

    ★★★★

    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.")

  • Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

    ★★★★½

    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.)
