  • Trapped in Paradise

    Trapped in Paradise

    ★★

    This is proper silly but it has its funny moments and some charm. I like the snowy town setting and 90s Christmas feel. The 3 main characters are all good together but it does get a bit lost with all its stupidity and it is definitely too long. After an hour it became a slog to finish so it certainly won't go down as Christmas favourite of mine but it's worth a one time watch.

  • Skyscraper

    Skyscraper

    ★★

    Completely forgettable film. Everything is so predictable and unrealistic. If The Rock wasn't in it I definitely wouldn't have stuck around until the end.

  • The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    The Man from U.N.C.L.E.

    ★★

    Starts off pretty good but I started to lose interest after about 45 minutes. It wasn't funny, there was hardly any action, the story was basic and the characters were just strange. Maybe it's just not for me, I appreciate the effort but it felt like a missed opportunity.

  • Obvious Child

    Obvious Child

    ★★

    Was hoping for a decent comedy but barely cracked a smile. Didn't really like the characters or feel that they had any chemistry either. It was watchable but very repetitive and doesn't really go anywhere.

  • Birthmarked

    Birthmarked

    ★★

    Nicely shot film with some mildly amusing moments but overall it's pretty shallow.

  • Molly's Game

    Molly's Game

    ★★

    Good performance from Jessica Chastain but the film is tedious. Completely forgettable.

  • mother!

    mother!

    ★★

    Good build up of tension but as more characters arrived it became chaotic and I started to lose interest. The ending didn't blow me away either.

  • Jason X

    Jason X

    ★★

    Decent amount of gore. Almost like a rip off of Alien but with Jason Voorhees running around.
    Best scene was the frozen head that then gets shattered. The virtual lake stuff at the end was quite cool. It's ok but not one i'd like to revisit.
