    The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It

    ★★

    Ughhhhhgggghhh. I miss James Wan. 
    Absolutely awful non-scares, everything was so predictable, the story was fine but all over the place and lacked any tension. 
    I found myself more sympathetic to the demonic worshippers than anyone else. The cute kid needed to be in it more. It was so far removed from the first two movies that were so self-contained, it was all over the place and lacked so much heart.

    Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness

    ★★★★

    Excellent documentary. 
    Disappointed in the lack of talk about how these animals are being abused. It’s more implied than explicitly stated, and when it is, it in the last few moments of the doc.

    1917

    ★★★★

    What a stunning film. 

    I was hooked from start to finish, it felt both blow and fast paced, which was probably down to the incredible one-shot effect which was pulled off magnificently. The story was simple, but so incredible, aided by a beautiful score by Newman. 

    My only issue was parts of the dialogue felt unconvincing and weak in parts. But overall it was the overarching story of desperation and survival that pulled through.

    Rebecca

    ★★½

    Let me start off by saying how much I wanted to like this film, I spent the first half desperately clutching at all the positives, but it just broke me by the end. 

    It has as much tension watching a sloth sleep. Nothing lands, it’s so heavy handed at times and it feels so embarrassing. 

    The presence of Rebecca was non-existent, as was the Gothic feel that’s is ever present in the novel. There was so much that didn’t land in this adaptation it was so disappointing.

    The costume design was on point though. 

    Also Cornish cliffs are not that damn tall...
