    ★★

    This film ain't even that good. Pure titillation.

  • Outside the Wire

    Trash with some nice CGI

  • Red Sparrow

    Red Sparrow

    ★★

    Sexy spy thriller, that feels more disturbing than sexy. Basically Jennifer Lawrence gets sent to the school that invented all things #metoo, and learns some spy stuff on the side. In fact, it would of been a much better movie without the whole weird sex spy element, and just focused on the espionage stuff, which wasn't half bad.

    Worth a watch if you're bored, and your mum isn't around to stumble in while you're watching it.

  • Aquaman

    Aquaman

    ★★

    Aquaman was ok. It looked really nice with all the underwater effects but, as expected, the story was as flat as a plaice. All in all a fun movie, but nothing special.

  • Game Night

    Game Night

    ★★

    Wasn't bad, a couple of chuckles. Good film for a sleepy day. My first film of 2019, so only way is up hopefully.

  • Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald

    ★★

    It's a fun movie but if you think about the storyline at all, you realise it makes barely any sense. It's totally confusing and full of rubbish that by the end of the film was totally superfluous anyway.... Still, was alright.

  • Venom

    Venom

    ★★

    Tom Hardy did an alright job as Venom, but character not developed enough, interesting dynamic between symbiote under exploited, so overall the movie remains mediocre at best. Bits and bobs of nice animation and visual effects, and Venom genuinely looks like the comic book character in a good way. Nice with a dollop of personal nostalgia for the 90s cartoon, but doesn't carry the movie.
