Sicario - a gritty, brutal and frank look at America's involvement in the South American drug trade. Very well acted, and directed and despite being violent, it never feels OTT. Would definitely recommend -8.5/10

Bone Tomahawk - A 'zombie western' that relies on it's cast, and baron landscape to create a suspenseful thriller that has really flown under the radar. I thought it was great - 8/10

Guardians of the Galaxy 2 - watched it last night in 3D, which I generally avoid, but my son insisted.

I thought the first one was by far and away the best of the Marvel films - it was silly, subversive, visually brilliant and made a very good fist of a complex story; this one - not so much. It tries very hard to romp its way through a complicated story, but there's far too much soul-searching, redemption and schmaltz - and not enough fun. It's still amazing to look at - but it spends too much time on unnecessary character development and not enough on the actual threat to the entire galaxy. I didn't not enjoy it - but I didn't enjoy it anywhere near as much as the first one. And Sylvester Stallone - why?!

6/10

Spot on review.

Was really looking forward to it but it just felt it was trying to be worthy rather than funny and slightly subversive.

Much of the humour was poor on the sort of American pie standard.

it felt about 20 minutes too long and in the end I was glad it was over.

Genuinely thought it would be great and it was not. I won't even be buying the DVD for the kids as they found it a bit boring.

Now really worried about seeing a follow up to Deadpool in case they fook that up as well

Alien Covenant.

5/10.

An annoying blot on the Alien franchise.

Colossal - almost impossible to describe the fantastical premise of this strange and idiosyncratic film, without putting everyone off seeing it; but in short, it's a pin sharp indie production which would probably never have seen the light of day without Anne Hathaway being attached. It deals with two very damaged and unhappy people, who's trauma is externalised through the medium of Japanese Kaiju movie monsters - and it's weirdly brilliant. If you like your movies off kilter, unusual and outside the mainstream - I would recommend it.

A strange and brilliant 8/10
