Tom has written 9 reviews for films rated ★★½ during 2018.

  • Rocky IV

    Rocky IV

    ★★½

    Drago gets away with murder and then for the next hour it's like a long music video with loads of montage stuff. It all felt very repetitive and a step down from the previous films.

  • Peter Rabbit

    Peter Rabbit

    ★★½

    Rey giving General Hux a wet willy...yeah it's a bit strange in places but some bits were fun too. Rose Byrne is a delight.

  • The Truth About Cats & Dogs

    The Truth About Cats & Dogs

    ★★½

    Some amusing moments and a promising start but overall it's really drawn-out and hard to get on board with a film full of far-fetched scenarios and characters.

  • Gringo

    Gringo

    ★★½

    David Oyelowo & Charlize Theron were good but the story is a mess. The comedy fell flat most of the time. It was decent enough for a one time watch but overall it's pretty forgettable.

  • Friday the 13th Part III

    Friday the 13th Part III

    ★★½

    Uneventful for the first hour but worth watching for some good kills once Jason gets his hockey mask.

  • The Ones Below

    The Ones Below

    ★★½

    Pretty disturbing stuff. It's far fetched & relies a lot on coincidences but it kept me intrigued.

  • The Foreigner

    The Foreigner

    ★★½

    Good performance from Jackie Chan. Although the story is pretty simple in the end, I did get lost a few times during the film. The pacing was a drag and there was so many names to remember as well as some twists which just seemed to be thrown in for the sake of it. The action scenes were well done. It was worth a one time watch but ultimately its pretty forgettable.

  • Kramer vs. Kramer

    Kramer vs. Kramer

    ★★½

    A film with no real beginning or end. Can't doubt that the performances of the 3 main cast members are great but it seems like a film which starts with a middle act and simply stays there.

  • Power Rangers

    Power Rangers

    The Power Rangers spend more time talking about Krispy Kreme than being actual Power Rangers
