  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

    ★★★

    Woah. Dude. *Guitar noise*
    Rinse & repeat for 90 minutes.

  • Greenberg

    Greenberg

    ★★★

    I was invested in the characters of Stiller & Gerwig as they both gave excellent and very real performances. Greenberg is a good character study but it became quite tiresome towards the end when I realised nothing was really happening.

    It's long winded and everything is left unresolved due to an abrupt ending. I liked it for the most part but ultimately I feel like it had the potential to do a lot more. It's a film I will probably forget about quickly.

  • Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

    ★★★

    Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle is so corny and the humour feels forced. The jungle setting is bland/uninteresting. There wasn't much excitement and I never felt like the characters were under any serious threat.

    I think it jumps in to the main part of the film a bit too quickly also, giving the main characters some more time to build as their real selves might have been better.

    I think I chuckled once or twice overall but it's just one…

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner

    ★★★

    *The Final Cut*

    The first time I watched this I couldn't even get through it. The visuals are amazing yes but the story is unengaging for the most part. The first hour was still slow and kinda boring but I stuck with it this time and the final act was actually really good. I appreciate it a lot more now but I'm still not blown away by it.

  • Jigsaw

    Jigsaw

    ★★★

    Jigsaw plays it pretty safe all the way through. The reveal at the end is good but obviously far fetched. Nothing groundbreaking but kept me intrigued for 90 minutes.
