Kingsman 2 - I see it’s being getting a fair amount of hate from the critics but I thought it was really enjoyable. Not a classic by any means, and not quite up to the first film, but provided a fun sugar rush for a couple of hours. Did drag a little at times as it was a bit overlong.

Solid 8/10 but gotta be in the mood.

IT

Bit disappointed to be honest. I found myself getting a bit bored, just watching one kid have a creepy experience after another but I think I went in with my expectations too high after reading so many positive impressions.

Surely it didn't need to be as long as it was.

Great performances from the cast, though, which is no mean feat considering the average age.

By the size of the book, I thought they done a brilliant job of bringing it to the big screen! And brought justice to the book after that 1990 version! And to be honest, there was so much more they could have put in, so at 2 hours and 15 mins, I don't have any issues with it.

Alien: Covenant - 5/10

Mostly shite with the odd half decent bit here and there.

You know a film is not very good when Danny McBride is one of the better things about it. ;)

And that dancing scene has become a meme.

Training Day - 8/10

Not seen this in years and surpised how well it holds up and just how strawberry floating great this film is. So much better than I remember it being.

Baywatch 5/10- I really wanted to enjoy this the trailers looked great but the critical slamming put me off seeing it in the cinemas. They were right, just not that funny or an interesting plot Tries to hard to be 'self aware'.

Kingsmen Golden Circle 6/10- Meh it was fine, not as good as the first one and was too long and had one too many bad guys in it.

Interstellar - 9/10

+ Incredible visuals
+ Good soundtrack
+ Compelling plot
+ McConaughey is excellent
+ Really draws you in to the story and universe

- Ending was a bit disappointing
- Some odd cuts
- Some dialogue felt out of place

Really enjoyed this. Never saw it in the cinema, kinda passed me by, but still looked and sounded great on blu-ray. Still thinking about it this morning and mulling it over in my head, but excellent on the whole and solidifies Nolan as my favourite director.

Gold

Interesting story and setting but too predictable. Sticks to the Blow/Wolf of Wall Street formula and just feels a bit tired. Matthew McConaughey overacts throughout the whole thing too. Not terrible, but wouldn't rewatch.

6/10

Resident Evil The Final Chapter (Though not according to Alice and her "still got gooseberry fool to do" at the end) abysmal movie. I enjoyed the previous Resident Evil movies as shite as they were but the last one which I've just finished watching took the biscuit. Boring as strawberry float, so much so I fell asleep before Alice had met Claire and woke when they were getting sucked in to some giant death trap fan in the Hive. 2/10 just let it die now.

IT - 2017 - Second time seeing this. An enjoyable horror adventure with excellent effects, cast and score. Would have liked more links to the bigger King universe but that's my only real complaint.

Beauty and the Beast (2017).
Loved the animated version, but this is a tawdry retread. While it's hard not to get swept along by the brilliant songs, the woeful miscasting of Emma Watson (an insufferably smug and superior Belle) and the offputting character design (Beast, Lumiere, Cogsworth and Mrs Potts) make it hard to actually enjoy. Where the animated version was superbly acted and visually inventive, this is dramatically inert and rather dull.
Disappointing.

Lord of the Rings: The Animated Movie. (1978)

Always loved this as a kid and watching it again I still love it. Beautifully animated, great voice acting, brilliantly paced.

While Peter Jackson's adaptation of LotR is absolute quality it's such a shame they never continued and finished this animated version, (promptly ends at The Battle of Helms Deep).

9/10

They did do a sequel, an animated one. I remember almost buying in on dvd years ago. 1980 Return of the King

Wasn't aware, but that does look a little lower budget. Nevertheless, I might check it out. Cheers

BFG (2016) 3/10

I couldn't really remember the original version, but thought I'd give this a go. I sadly found it very dull. The little girl was alright, but the BFG was far, far too irritating. Every time he spoke I just switched off. I don't think he was played very well at all and didn't find him lovable, just irritating.

Nearly every scene seemed to drag on for about 5 minutes more than it needed too, the effects were pretty dodgy at times, and it didn't really have any fun to it. It was actually pretty damn boring, so not sure how a child would have kept its attention throughout it.

I didn't finish it in the end. Got to the bit where they see the queen and I just turned it off.

Straight Outta Compton 8/10 - Obviously a huge chunk of artistic license taken with how everyone behaved but still a fantastic slice of music history. Made me realise just how ridiculous 15 year old white me looked singing along to strawberry float tha Police.

Ice Guardians 10/10 - Fantastic documentary looking at the role of the enforcer in ice hockey over the years. Some real insight, great interviews. If you're a hockey fan then it's essential, if not I still think it's worth a watch. You'll find it on Netflix if you're interested. It should then be followed by Jay Baruchel's Goon, which is also tremendous.
