  • The Santa Clause 2

    The Santa Clause 2


    A decent sequel despite all the weird shit going on.

  • Call Me Claus

    Call Me Claus


    First Christmas film of the year. 

    Pretty decent for something I'd never even heard of before.

  • Brightburn



    The premise is great, the performances are decent and there is some proper gore.
    It is good but it's clearly got potential to be a lot better. I can't put my finger on the problems but it's just lacking that special something to make it truly memorable.

  • Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates

    Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates


    I like all the main 4 but it's not the best film/performance for any of them. The comedy is hit and miss but overall a pretty decent one time watch.

  • The Cabin in the Woods

    The Cabin in the Woods


    Tried before. Got bored. 
    Today was my 3rd attempt. Finally finished it. Weird film. Still don't know if I really like it or not.

  • 10 to Midnight

    10 to Midnight


    First time I've ever seen a Police drama/slasher I think. Certainly not lacking in shock value.

  • The Meg

    The Meg


    Takes a while to get going and has some rubbish dialogue. In the end though, the action is decent and the scenery is nice. It's Jason Statham vs a massive shark, I got what I signed up for.

  • The Happytime Murders

    The Happytime Murders


    Has its moments and at only 80 minutes it doesn't overstay it's welcome or become repetitive. It's stupid and some jokes don't land at all but I laughed a few times, same as with Sausage Party. Don't hate me.

  • Daylight



    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Pretty good disaster film. The effects have held up well, the first 20-30 minutes which set up the film are superb. It does drag quite a bit as it goes on though and the characters constantly arguing and shouting gets a bit tiresome. I only really cared about the dog anyway so I'm glad he survived.

  • Braven



    A simple film that does what you expect. Jason Momoa is a good lead and the kills don't hold back with the gore. Overall a good film but nothing spectacular to make it truly memorable or worth a revisit.

  • Here Comes the Boom

    Here Comes the Boom


    A predictable film but it had heart and was quite amusing. A nice easy going film.

  • Mile 22

    Mile 22


    Thought the action/fight scenes were very well done. It's a bit rough overall though, the dialogue and editing made everything feel like I was watching it on fast forward so that made an already complicated plot even more difficult to follow. 

    Not the best Wahlberg/Berg film but a pretty solid action film despite some frustrating elements.
