    The Babysitter: Killer Queen

    ★★

    I’ve been cat sitting today and me and my fiancé had free rein of a 4K UHD TV  (which was bigger than my ambitions let’s be honest here). The Babysitter: Killer Queen was the pick of the bunch today, by a director who refers to himself as, um, McG.

    ★★★

    I’m determined to give Tim Burton as many chances as possible to impress me. There’s potential there but due to his horrible styling choices I’ve only been able to be genuinely impressed once.  Corpse Bride was the next film I gave the fella a chance to impress with. 

    Corpse Bride didn’t impress me either. Sure, there’s some interesting choices here and I’m a huge fan of the musical interlude when he realises he’s in the land of the dead but…
