I rewatched Dredd a couple of months back and I think it's already aged badly. It's still enjoyable but all the 3D and slow mo stuff really drags it down. Even the action was weaker than I remembered. Best thing is Karl Urban and the music. And the intro is pretty good.
I’m Thinking of Ending Things - 6/10; enjoyed the film but didn’t have a clue for the last quarter had to watch an ending explained video on YouTube.
Global Convoy - 7/10; essentially a travel documentary buying two cars one for £75 and another for £150 [iirc]. Setting off from London trying to get round the world with little money and the generosity of the local folk [Amazon Prime].
Peninsula [Sequel to Train to Busan] - 5/10; watchable not terrible just not a patch on the original.
Extraction - 7/10; Chris Hemsworth goes Jason Bourne in India, best action film I’ve seen in a long time.
At the moment watching 3 hollywood epic classic movies all with a run time over 3 hours. First time watching these films
Spartacus - 10/10 amazing set pieces and sequences Laurence of Arabia - 10/10 - the scope of desert is captured brilliantly and the vastness of the surroundings really puts you in the action some brilliant cinematography, great soundtrack
Ben Hur tomorrow

Dredd is great but it does sometimes feel like a 're-skin' of The Raid made for western audiences.
I heard it was the best transformers film. Its OK, more of a teen film with CGI action bits. 5/10. I really like Hailee Steinfeld. I hope she writes the theme tune and sings the theme tune for the Hawkeye series.
