  • The Children

    The Children

    ★★

    The characters in this are all unbearable, constantly talking and screaming over each other so much that you could barely make out what their conversations were. 

    There is some good kills here though and some nice camera shots. No explanation of why everything happened though.

  • The Other Guys

    Watched the Extended Other Edition

    I like Will Ferrell & Mark Wahlberg in most things, including together in the two Daddy’s Home films. But this one is just not for me. It starts off decent, there’s a few decent laughs and some good good action scenes but once The Rock & Samuel L Jackson take a dive, so does the film. I have no idea what the story even is and the laughs pretty much dry up.

  • Bloodshot

    Bloodshot

    ★★

    It seems like everyone has already shat on Vin Petrol’s latest film and now I can see why. 
    The film does actually get off to a solid start with its set up of the story and it does have some cool action scenes throughout. 
    The major problem is the dialogue, its consistently bad to a point that it made most of the characters quite annoying. KT was cool though. 
    Also for a film that’s only 100 minutes, the pacing was sluggish and struggled to keep me fully engaged.

  • Snatched

    ★★

    My mum picked this film for us to watch and then fell asleep half way through.

  • Klaus

    Klaus

    ★★

    The animation is done beautifully and I give it credit for some originality but honestly I found it quite boring. The story is basic and quite drawn out, I didn't like any of the characters and it was lacking that magical something.

  • 6 Underground

    6 Underground

    ★★

    A promising start with plenty of action, but the story is all over the place, the jokes are stupid and the editing may give you a headache.

  • Deck the Halls

    Deck the Halls

    ★★

    Mildly amusing for the first part of the film. Then the characters really start to get annyoying, the battle between the two is stupidly over the top and the laughs dry up completely. 

    Won't be watching this one again.

  • Cold Pursuit

    Cold Pursuit

    ★★

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

    The characters and humour just left me shaking my head. The action is mostly off screen with a name coming up every time someone dies.

    Laura Dern disappears after 20 minutes and Neeson starts hanging around with the villains kid. Then you get gang wars and characters talking at length about irrelevant shit.

    I don't know how I sat through this for two hours because it was tedious and boring. I liked the location and the set up for a basic revenge flick was there but this just goes completely off track.

    I'm sure this is a parody.

  • Raw Deal

    Raw Deal

    ★★

    Pretty bad film but 2 stars because Arnie calls himself Joseph Pussy Brenner and shoots quite a lot of dudes.

  • Halloween II

    Halloween II

    ★★

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

    Love the 2007 film and this one starts good but once we see it's just a dream it goes downhill with the occasional good kill.

  • Book Club

    Book Club

    ★★

    Hardly any laughs to be had and none of the characters were interesting enough to really care about their individual stories. Watchable but definitely a missed opportunity, for me anyway.

  • Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

    Happy New Year, Colin Burstead

    ★★

    Good cast but there's so many characters and there's nothing particularly memorable happening or being explored at any length so in the end it left no impression.
