    Deadpool 2

    ★★★★

    I don't think anyone could have imagined how big the first Deadpool turned out to be, I remember loving it when it first came out, but slowly went down in my books with each viewing. It's good fun, but ultimately a very safe and boring origin story mixed with childish humour and adult rated violence.

    Nocturnal Animals

    ★★★★½

    It's a beautiful looking film, from lots of scenic New Mexico cinematography and a bit of night-time city scenes. The performances were all amazing (Gyllenhaal…
