    The Hitman's Bodyguard

    ★★★

    It's about 20 mins too long but I love the chemistry between Reynolds and Jackson.

  • The Titan

    The Titan

    ★★½

    Whereas most movies about exploring new worlds focus on us terraforming to change the destination planet to fit our needs, this is the first time I've seen a movie about changing humans to fit the alien environment. Sadly, there's very little else to like here. Only love here is for Taylor Schilling and Nathalie Emmanuel both of whom are excellent in a really terrible movie.

    Melancholia

    ★★★★

    I’ve liked, though not always enjoyed. Lars von Trier’s offerings over the past few years but for some reason, likely the combination of length and expectation, Melancholia escaped me. With his new film due for festival runs this winter, the time seemed ripe to catch up with his 2011 offering. Why did I wait so long?

    Undeniably beautiful, Melancholia is also my favourite of von Trier’s works. It’s his exploration of a woman suffering through depression on her wedding day…

  • Wonder Woman

    Wonder Woman

    ★★★★

    I have a few issues with it - namely the motivation behind one of the central moments in the 3rd act and a too-long action sequence - but otherwise, it's a total lovefest.

    At one point, I was so joyously happy, I even got a little teary-eyed.
