Ghost in the shell ( the new one ) - 5-6 / 10

As expected of Hollywood's manga adaptation - the visuals were pretty. Acting was also good, but the build-up was way too long for such a short and thus dissapointing conclusion.

The Book Thief 7/10

Loved the book, liked the film.

Its beautifully shot, and well acted (apart from the sometimes strange accents) and shows a snapshot of Nazi Germany from a childs point of view.

If youve got a choice between the book and the film, definitely go for the book!

Split 7/10

This film does take a bit of patience but overall is worth a watch- possible follow up in pipeline as leaves much to the imagination.

Sleepless - 6.5/10

Jamie Foxx movie, not his best but passes the time and he plays the part well as an investigating internal affairs agent.

Fast & Furious 8 - 5/10 - It's a dumb movie, it's not awesome, it's just dumb. It has plot holes so large you could drive a submarine through them.

Ha! I see what you did, there - nicely played, Sir

Kong: Skull Island 5/10

Decent CGI-fest and outing by Hiddleston, spoiled by planet-sized plot holes and typecast shouty-shouter Samuel L. Jackson. I understand it's a premise-setting movie for a Kong V Godzilla movie to come, and it feels exactly like the background-setting 'excuse' that it is.

La La Land 7/10

"Not worth the hype, but worth the nominations", is the way I'd put it. Emma Stone and Ryan Gosling are (perhaps predictably) superb, as are jazz tidbits throughout, but the rest (story, pacing, musical/signing bits) lacks substance. I just didn't find it as engaging as the media noises suggested I would.

GITS 5.5/10

Ah, that one. Oh dear. How to convey the disappointment?

Let's just say I was as disappointed with this, having grown up on a staple of anime and seen (repeatedly for some) just about every one there is to see over decades -including the original GITS, GITS2 and the SAC GIGs series- as I was with Pitt's World War Z after (repeatedly) reading Max Brooks' original years before.

It was never going to be a 10 (it can't be a classic, when the original anime wouldn't hold much of a candle to the likes of Otomo's Akira and Ghibli's Mononoke), but could have been an easy 9. The visuals kept it 5 points, the "Hollywood treatment" lost it 4 points, but I can't decently give it less than Kong, so it gets an extra 0.5 because Johansson stepped up to play Kusanagi.

When you said GITS I thought a prequel to The Old GITS on Harry Enfield.

Anywho, Star Trek Beyond. Pretty solid Star Trek film, half decent plot good effects, plenty of oomph. It's not going to win a hat full of awards but it kept me entertained. I liked it. 7/10

Dirty Harry is a fantastic film but I thought the sequels were generally poor with Magnum Force the best of a poor bunch.

I though Sudden Impact was pretty good when Harry made his comeback in 1983. I think that was the one where he uttered the classic line " Go ahead, make my day" lol I think Clint also directed this one.

Fast and Furious 8, -7/10 Mindless fun. Just turn the brain off and enjoy non stop action and one liners. Love the Helen Mirren and reference to Watch Dogs games.

Great new cinema on the Moor! But, why is popcorn 7 is beyond me.

I wouldn't go as far as to give it a 10/10 even for nostalgia value. I used to love this film when I was a kid but when Paramount put in on Youtube for free last year (I think) I rewatched it and realised how cheap n' cheesy it is. Still quite fun to watch though.


Swiss Army Man - 7/10

Paul Dano, trapped alone on a small island and suicidal, finds dead Daniel Radcliffe on the beach and realises he can ride his farting corpse like a jet-ski back to the mainland. The two then form a heartwarming friendship as they travel though a forest in search of civilisation.

Weird and weirdly fun film. Whoever came up with the concept for this needs to seek professional help.

Sully. I don't go to the cinema normally but this was a one off and I did enjoy it.
