    Justice League

    ★★½

    A Thanos type bad guy tries to collect infinity stones type boxes but a billionaire led super group stands in his way.

    Spoiler - Superman comes back and gets a maniacal grin of approval from Batman.

    I maybe didn't hate it as much as I thought I would, but the movie makes zero sense. And where did that weird "thirst" joke between Diane Lane and Amy Adams come from?

    Easter Parade

    ★★★★

    I never think I'm going to enjoy these films but then I leave it playing and I get sucked right in.

It's really quite a joy to watch and I'll be looking for it on tv on Easter Sunday for years to come.

    Happy Easter.

    ★★★★½

    This will contain no spoilers or plot details, just my own personal feelings about the film.

    I just got out of the first showing, 00:01 on 17 December 2015, of probably the most eagerly anticipated movie of all time. But let's not forget that this is a series that has already been through the ringer and has lay dormant on the big screen since the end of the prequels trilogy a decade ago, a trilogy that, to put it as…
