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

King Arthur. Legend of the sword.

It is not as bad as everyone says.

Decent action film, decent story some good actors.

Well worth watching.

Unfortunately it is not worth listening too.

Whoever gave this to Guy Ritchie should be shot.

He is the most one dimensional director ever.

Stick to cockney gangster films.

Listening to Charlie Hunnam calling everyone mate and talking about ENGERLAND and some ridiculous dialogue . The trick of going backwards and forwards to tell about a particular event in the film was cringeworthy.

Legend of King Arthur became lock release and stab.

The script was written by someone who does story's for east Enders.


It might not be too bad if you could watch it with subtitles and the sound turned off.

Visually 7/ 10

Aurally. 0/10

Wonder Woman .

Really really enjoyed this.

A great film with a good role for a female to get her teeth into .


Plenty of history and good back story to bring a great character to life.

The best bit about it and something worth drawing out is that man needs a woman to civilise them.

Wonder woman's role is to oppose war and bring peace. The violence is about doing what is right to bring about peace fora better world. It is about striving for the right thing and that ultimately love is stronger than hate.

Really enjoyed it and one of the better superheroes of recent years.

'What the Health?' A documentary on the impact of diet, and animal agriculture have on our health and the environment, by the makers of 'Cowspircy'. It's a brilliantly eye opening piece of work. I'm already vegan, but I challenge anybody to watch it and not consider making the transition and give up animal products. If we really want to save the NHS money, veganism is the way to go. 9/10

Baby Driver - I love Edgar Wright, so I was a soft target for this film, and it didn't disappoint; it's stylish, really well acted, has some brilliant action scenes and one of the hippest soundtracks I've ever heard.

Essentially, a young man with a troubled past (and tinnitus) is forced to be a getaway driver to pay a debt to Kevin Spacey's crimelord - various dysfunctional crims feature, including a cracking turn by John Hamm, and in the middle of it all, young man falls in love and makes a decision to leave the life of crime. It's fairly pared down in story terms - and the way that music punctuates the action is really clever - *almost* a musical at times, but not in a cheesy way.

Loved it - recommended! 8/10
