    Arctic

    ★★★★

    Effective survival drama that I feel like I might be overrating slightly due to Mads' amazing performance.

    He's one of my favourite actors, so spending 90 minutes with the guy in the middle of the Arctic is like heaven to me.

    Still, even if I wasn't such a huge fan, this is a great, detailed acting showcase.

    Conveys so much through so little - his beautiful eyes and wind battered face stare right through your soul.

    It's pretty typical, though…

    ★★

    Pretty forgettable and at times, incredibly incoherent.

    Did love the sideline that Denzel has where he kidnaps random family members from all over the world and drops them off with their relatives with ZERO notice.

    And I guess I appreciate that this is a little more brutal than the first film when it comes to the violence.

    But yeah, that doesn't mean it's good.

    The story is very dull and it somehow doesn't even reach the low 'by the numbers'…

    Better Watch Out

    Worst Christmas movie ever.

    Worst 'home invasion' movie ever.

    Worst 'psychopathic rapey little teenager' movie ever.

    I think I spoiled the the twist there - THE KID IN THE TRAILER WHO FANCIES HIS BABYSITTER IS REVEALED TO BE A RAPEY PSYCHOPATH WHO TIES UP SAID BABYSITTER AND ACTS ALL CRINGEY AND RAPEY AROUND HER FOR 50 MINUTES.

    Merry Christmas, everyone.

    Really don't know what I'm meant to be getting out of this. I sort of wanted the kid dead way…

  • Batman and Harley Quinn

    Batman and Harley Quinn

    ★★

    I'd written a pretty substantial thing about this before my internet cut out and I lost it forever.

    It wasn't that enlightening...but basically, Timm has finally published that Harley Quinn XXX fan fiction he's had in a drawer /his drawers, for years.

    It's not particularly funny, the actual story feels like a way to include as many shots of Quinn's body parts as possible and it's so tonally all over the shop, it goes from fart jokes, to major trauma,…
