    Dragnet

    ★★★½

    This was one that I'd officially seen before - having watched it when I was much younger - but I'm glad that I decided to rewatch it as an adult - the young me could have never appreciated just why this film works.

    Although the pacing is often lethargic and the plot goes nowhere, Dragnet is nonetheless a fun and silly spoof of the '50s/'60s TV show (somewhat reminiscent of films like The Naked Gun) and everybody involved seems to…

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    Easily better than the appalling Suicide Squad (well, all it had to do was to show up and not totally suck), James Gunn's DC endeavour has characters who we really care about, plenty of colourful and violent setpieces, and a sense of humour. Although, I have to say that I didn't love it - it didn't truly excite me - and those heavy emotional scenes were laid on a bit too thick.

    King Shark rules.
