    It was ok. McAvoy was brilliant.
    Found it a bit boring at times to be honest.


    Why have Momoa if you aren’t going to give him enough of a script to allow his personality through.

    It felt like a serious of fight scenes and little else at times.

    Still a good film just think the end let it down a bit, bit simple compared to split..... but Then there’s was the good twist at the very end.

    Watched The Matrix with my kid - first time he's seen it. He can finally understand all the memes it spawned :D

    Great movie.

    I watched Fighting with my Family, decent watch, follows the story of Paige from the WWE, if you used to be a fan back in the day you will like this.

    Avengers Endgame. I loved it. A great way to round out phase 2 of the MCU and retire the characters that have been with us from the beginning.

    I loved the sadness of their failure from the last film, the hope that they might find a way back, the callbacks to the previous films, the final confrontation and resolutions to so many characters arcs.

    I'm not ashamed to say I got a little emotional as I was cheering them on. I loved these characters as a kid reading Marvel Comics, and I've loved watching them reincarnated in the MCU. I feel an endpoint was reached, and a new story is starting.

    Another 48 hours. Decent enough film. Although the dynamic between Nolte and Murphy isn't as strong as the first. Not quite a classic, but worth a watch.

    Dracula Untold. https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0829150/

    I remember the beginning and end so I must have seen it before but the rest didn't ring any bells. Anyway, that turned out to be a good thing as I rather enjoyed it. Very well done effects and a different spin on the usual representation of this type of story.

    Just watch Long Shot and this exceeded all expectations.

    Very funny, in places I never thought possible.

    Charlize Theron says "I want you to do me from behind and slap my ass!"

    took me by surprise!

    There are some gross out scenes as with all Seth Rogan movies but it is Charlize Theron who is the stand out actor in this, really really enjoyable and laughed throughout. There is so much to like in this film, and in a lot of ways I enjoyed this movie way more than Endgame did.

    p.s. Andy Serkis turned up totally like a different person!

    Incredibles 2 - not sure that the film was needed at all as the first was so good and self contained. That said though this was really good fun. 4/5

    Avengers Endgame, 7/10, not enough action for me, decent enough though and sad at the end.
    Did think the 3D experience was pretty lame though.

    The Unthinkable

    Relatively small budget ($2m) Swedish film with surprisingly good special effects and some pretty cool sequences. Got a little ridiculous towards the end but still interesting to see a film from different perspective(s) to the usual Hollywood action films.

    Mrs Doubtfire 8.5/10
    A great movie with a decent story and some good moments, It's a movie I can rewatch over and still not stop laughing.

    Resident Evil Apocalypse

    The Resi film came up in another thread recently and I'd only ever seen the first (thought it was decent enough), so I decided to watch them all.

    The first isn't on Netflix or Prime, so started with the 2nd one.

    First half was terrible. Maybe I missed it, but had no idea what prompted Alice to arrive in the church, and in such manner. Weird. And terrible visual style on the action sequences.

    2nd half was better.

    Didn't like Alice being given super powers: much better to just be a straight up badass.

    Hope the others are better

    Happy Death Day 2 - 7/10.

    Enjoyed the first one and was looking forward to this. Not as good as the first and a part at the end got very Scooby Doo! But a decent sequel.

    Coco - Pixar doing an original film seems a bit rare at the moment with all of their sequels. This one is good fun, maybe not up there with their best but Pixar on an average day is still better than most. 4/5
