  Kong: Skull Island+
Didn't really grab me. 'Idiot plot' at various places.
  Beauty and the Beast+
Might have cried a little. I will deny it if asked.
  Life+
Great idea, very creepy, a little spoiled by the stupid decisions the characters make. I would love a sequel.
  Lego Batman+
I'm going to see every single Lego film there is. Cannot get enough of them. They are perfect.
  Power Rangers+
Cheesy and stupid, not sure whether that's the point. Essentially a cheap rip off of the Transformers and Spiderman franchises.
  A Cure for Wellness+
Sometimes I feel like films are made just for me. It's a similar setting to your standard horror film, starts with a house/cabin/asylum whatever that seems normal but you know isn't, but this isn't a horror film so doesn't degrade into your generic jump scares and everyone but one dying by the end. Instead it's about the mystery, what is the explanation behind all the odd stuff? I really enjoyed finding out.
  Logan+
Too good. Completely unlike any of the other X-men films. I don't care that much about the franchise, certainly I never bothered to see the other two Wolverine films but I'm glad I saw this. All very low key, no over the top set pieces like bridges being moved by the power of the mind. And the concept of Xavier having a degenerative brain disease- genius.
  Get Out+
Perfect. Another great example of a movie where there's an ordinary setting but something isn't right and you can't wait to find out what. Funny and creepy in all the right places. The ending was fantastic. Great film to know nothing about going in.
  Hacksaw Ridge+
I dislike war films almost as much as Mel Gibson dislikes Jews but I still really loved this film. Amazing.
  Deepwater Horizon+
Really solid. You knew what was going to happen but you didn't know how or when and it was really fun to wait and find out. Great tension throughout. It's a shame because Mark Wahlberg is a complete dick so I do not want to enjoy his films (then why do I go then? No idea).
  Ben Hur+
Do not understand the hate at all. I enjoyed the entire thing, was never boring, and made me really happy to not have been born 2000 years ago. I passionately disagree with those who said 'it didn't need a remake'. Of course it didn't so what?
  Suicide Squad+
Wanted to like it but it was just plain dumb. The first third of the film was all about saving a VIP which turned out to be a character you were already familiar with that you didn't even realise needed saving (oh btw spoilers). What was the point of that then? Then it degraded into generic bad guy with columns of light shooting into the sky (only LOTR is allowed to do that).
  Batman vs Superman+
I mostly enjoyed this. Obviously Batman fighting Superman makes no sense, but they made as much sense of it as they could. The final fight at the end was extremely generic and forgetful. But Wonder Woman was great, as usual. And when I say Wonder Woman I'm obviously talking about Amy Adams.
  The Force Awakens+
[Highlight Episode 4] [Ctrl C] [Ctrl V] [Change 4 to 7] Who cares it was still amazing. I saw it three times and still want to see it again.
  Exodus+
A movie about God and Ramesses competing with each other to see who can be the biggest dick. God wins.
  The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies+
I really wanted to love it, but it just came up short. There were some really dumb parts, specifically the character of Alfred, who should clearly have been cut. And the battle scenes didn't feel as cool as the Two Towers or Return of the King. I'm not sure why. Maybe I'm just older, maybe I've become desensitized to them, but whatever the reason, this film is certainly one companion short of a Fellowship.
  Horrible Bosses 2+
I did not really care for this. There were some good jokes, but I found it full of stupid bits that made no sense, that were included just for a gag. I'd expect that from a Family Guy episode or maybe a parody film like Airplane, but here it just seemed unnatural.
  Interstellar+
I found this similar to Inception. Great ideas and some great visuals, the problem is that I'm not convinced the story actually makes sense. After a while you just have to stop thinking and run with it. I did enjoy the presence of Jessica Chastain, who is becoming an increasingly strong contender to join the Holy Trinity of Gingers (currently consisting of Amy Adams, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Isla Fisher). I wouldn't want to be the guy who decides which one she'd replace.
  Fury+
Pretty good, and I usually don't like war films. There were no annoying cliché scenes, for example having to perform surgery on the battlefield. Best of all, Shia LaBouef got shot in the face.
  The Maze Runner+
Great premise and start, but as it went on it made less and less sense. New characters appeared who had no impact on the story. The bad guy's motivations made no sense. The ultimate explanation of why there was a maze was ridiculous. Much better to give no explanation at all, like Cube, or actually a good one like Cabin in the Woods.
