    ★★★½

    A fun kids movie that spawned an unlikely but lucrative  franchise from director Robert Rodriguez. Good cast, nice mix of practical and digital effects and the debut of Danny Trejo’s Machete. Alan Cumming’s depraved children’s television host is good fun too.

    Scoob!

    ★★½

    Who ever decided it was a good idea to split the Mystery Inc team up for the majority of this film needs a stern telling off. Whoever thought kids want Simon Cowell cameos and Gerard Depardieu references needs a sterner telling off. I like the idea of building a Hanna Barbera extended universe (Dick Dastardly, Muttley and Blue Falcon appear) but sidelining all the Scooby Doo characters to make it happen seems churlish. Stick with the Raja Gosnell live action films instead.

    Workers Leaving the Lumière Factory

    ★★★★★

    The first film ever made and exhibited to a paying audience, the historical importance of The Lumiere Brother's Employees Leaving the Lumiere Factory cannot be overstated. If we didn't have this film, then we wouldn't have Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen! Actually, fuck the Lumiere Brothers! No I don't mean that. Thank you boys.
