  • Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones

    ★½

    Here we have it: the true low point of the Star Wars franchise.

    It's difficult to assess which aspect of this film makes it the worst entry in the series. Episode II takes many of the failings of its predecessor and several times over. The focus on inter-galactic politics has somehow become even more convoluted, to the point that motivations for any group or individual are near impossible to follow.

  • Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'

    Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'F'

    ★½

    Dragon Ball Z: Resurrection 'Fanservice'

    Dumb even by its own standards, this pointless venture manages a couple of laughs, some decent animation (when not awkwardly transitioning to shitty CG) and not much else.

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service

    Kingsman: The Secret Service

    ★½

    Thoroughly unpleasant, ugly, and surprisingly unfun. One of the biggest disappointments of 2015.
