  • The Sum of All Fears

    The Sum of All Fears

    ★★½

    Big Ben is pretty mid-cast, but this wasn’t as bad as I was expecting. The stakes are a little too big, and the ending is vey rushed, but it also wasn’t as good as the Harrison Ford ones. 

    So, eh, yeah.

  • The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf

    The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf

    ★★½

    Probably suffers a little because it’s so close to the superior Castlevania show - including two of the main cast. 

    It’s fine, nothing special. Main character looks exactly like Jensen from Deus Ex.

  • Fear Street: 1666

    Fear Street: 1666

    ★★½

    A series of horror films for folk that thought Stranger Things was creepy. 

    Shiny, slick and ultimately disposable.

  • Fear Street: 1978

    Fear Street: 1978

    ★★½

    Suffers a bit from middle part syndrome - also, everything looks too clean and modern. If it wasn’t for the needle drops, it could be set at almost any time up until the advent of the iPhone. 

    Doesn’t really capture the feeling of those classic 70s horror films. 

    It’s fine, but still a pretty mild 18 rated horror.

  • Tarzan

    Tarzan

    ★★½

    It really goes on and on, until the brutal death of National Treasure, Brian Blessed

  • Rebecca

    Rebecca

    ★★½

    Looks nice, but it’s pretty boring. A bit like Armie Hammer, expect we all know he’s a wannabe Hannibal.

  • Bill

    Bill

    ★★½

    A few decent jokes stretched very thinly.

  • Ratchet & Clank

    Ratchet & Clank

    ★★½

    Bog-standard kids film with a decent cast. Hannah seemed to enjoy it, but she will watch any old shite.

  • Purl

    Purl

    ★★½

    One joke in this raised my eyebrows higher than any previous Disney film.

  • Aladdin

    Aladdin

    ★★½

    On a second (maybe third or forth at this point), it really drags along at times. It's fine, and maybe the best of the live action Disney remakes, but it's still ultimately in the shadow of a nearly 30 year old cartoon.

  • The Midnight Sky

    The Midnight Sky

    ★★½

    Two kind of alrights don't make a good film.

    I rolled my eyes a lot watching this film, and it's a shame, because on paper it all sounds great.

  • The Bourne Supremacy

    The Bourne Supremacy

    ★★½

    I mean, what's the plot here? It's so vague and unfocused. The action scenes are good, and who doesn't love Karl Urban, but otherwise the first one is more watchable.
