    Hidden Figures

    ★★½

    Nice message, and nice to learn a bit more of the history.

  • My Scientology Movie

    My Scientology Movie

    ★★

    Disappointing, but I knew it would be. I'm a massive fan of Louis, but what I like is his interaction and even confrontation with the people he is making a documentary about. The Scientologists gave him nothing to work with.

  • T2 Trainspotting

    T2 Trainspotting

    Didn't do much for me at all. And the lighting towards the end, when they're in a building near a railway line and trains keep going past, is ridiculous. Really annoying. Robert Carlyle's accent was a bit over the top. Only good bit was the music.

  • Cars 3

    ★★

    Poor.

  • Hush

    Hush

    ★½

    Not my sort of film. But it was nice to see some sign language.

  • Cloud Atlas

    Cloud Atlas

    ★★★★

    It's hard to know what to make of this film; there's a lot going on. It's impossible to fully understand on the first viewing, and it's made worse by the fact that much of the dialogue is unintelligible.

    That said, I love an ambitious film, and this is certainly ambitious, and new, and experimental. Maybe it didn't reach its ambitions, but so what. I enjoyed it a lot, and it's definitely worth watching.

  • Alien: Covenant

    ★½

    I'm not quite sure what I get out of these films, but I keep watching them.

  • Daddy's Home

    Daddy's Home

    ★★

    Better than expected; fun to watch with the nephews (although I didn't expect so many swear words!).

  • Split

    Split

    Basically shit.

  • Meet the Patels

    Meet the Patels

    ★★½

    It was obvious from a few minutes in how it would end. The main guy is a completely unsympathetic character, although I quite liked his parents. However, it was enjoyable overall.

  • The Princess and the Frog

    The Princess and the Frog

    ★★

    It was fine. I enjoyed watching it, there were some funny bits and the use of colour was great. But I wouldn't want to see it again in a rush. I liked the food theme. I wasn't really into the songs.

  • Blackfish

    ★★★

    Haunting.
