    Adventures in Babysitting

    ★★★

    A fun 80s coming of age adventure. Elizabeth Shue of Karate Kid and Back To The Future fame put in a really good performance. Fairly predictable outcome by nonetheless overall this was an enjoyable film.

    Gains a star for the babysitting blues!

  • Thunderbirds

    Thunderbirds

    ★★

    While this is ultimately not a good movie for a kids film this was actually ok. I'll always feel that this could’ve been a lot better given the source material however. Feels like they completely wasted the Thunderbirds by having them stuck in space for the majority of the film. How they got Bill Paxton and Ben Kingsley to star in this is amazing.

    Gains a star cos it’s still Thunderbirds.

    Ranking The Star Wars.

    "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."

    “And you, young Skywalker. We will watch your career with great interest.”

    I probably really disliked this film when it came out purely for thinking it would be anywhere near as good as the original trilogy. That being said I think I have warmed towards it a bit in recent years. Although I do think there’s was too much time and attention spent on the pod racing. The last 20 minutes really saves this film.

    Loses a star for Jar-Jar Binks.

    “Roads? Where we’re going we don’t need roads”

    A brilliant sequel which follows on perfectly from the first. This is probably the best of the trilogy.

    Gains a star for not just retracing what the first one did.
