    I remember being a bit indifferent to it, neither liking or hating it.

    I read some article a while after it came out that said it's a Willy Wonka sequel somehow, don't remember the specifics.

    Aquaman - 5/10 (3 of these marks are for demo material)

    This might be a new low for DC movies. On the plus side, it looks and sounds stunning. Arguably worth having just to put subs through their paces. On the downside, it was a complete, disjointed mess on a scale I previously didn't believe possible! I would genuinely rather watch Man of Steel again than watch this (and i'd rather stay at work than watch Man of Steel).

    I watched Arctic on Friday night. Really enjoyed it. Pretty much a tale of survival for a guy following a plane crash.

    Well worth watching.

    Yeah, I thought this but how on earth do you come up with an ending?

    You can't kill him, I think he's too far gone to be won over, and he can't kill everyone because....well, there'd be nothing left.

    Only thing I thought of would be a bit more story around the spacecraft and that weird voice calling out to him.

    robogeisha - 4/10 - pretty bad as you would expect, but some fun moments
    prince of darkness - 6/10 - actually not bad. Some interesting ideas but definitely not carpenters best (or worst).

    Nice to see Aquaman get panned, I've been umming and ahhing for ages, but DC films in general are absolute junk. Wonder Woman was good, Suicide Squad was decent-ish and the Dark Knight stuff was good but that's it. Especially X-men, what a load of ****.

    Bumblebee.

    Sort of like E.T. but with a robot and a teen-age girl.

    Except E.T was good and this was complete tosh. How this was so well reviewed is beyond me.

    Kind of like being punched in the foot after being punched in the head, it's almost a pleasure to not have the head beating even though there is still pain.

    The previous transformers movies are the head punches, Bumblebee is the foot.

    I thought X-Men was a Marvel comic, Fox film production?

    It is indeed Marvel but it's generally as bad these days as the worst DC movies.

    I haven't enjoyed an X-Men movie since first class :(

    Probably because compared to all the previous Transformer movies, this one was actually okay and made the most sense from start to finish

    Brightburn (2019) - 8/10

    A darker and more sinister take on the superhero origin story and although it doesn’t really do much with the origin story premise, I still enjoyed it.

    Good acting and special effects with moments of horror and gore, although it could have been a lot darker and more stylish at times.

    21 Jump Street - 10/10. They really caught lightning in a bottle with this one. The characters are believable, there is a fair bit of heart / some feels and oodles of utterly bizarre, seemingly completely ab libbed dialogue. There are soooo many funny lines. I don’t know why I feel the need to list my favourites but:

    “Not so slim shady?!”

    “I was gay when you punched me!”

    “You’ll be in jail with a snorkel taped to your mouth. And they’ll be me..... ******ing down that snorkel”

    “Actually, you do have the right to be an attorney, if you want to”

    “.... You cherub looking mother...”

    “Someone died in the school and nobody including me is doing anything about it”

    “Hey! Leave Korean Jesus alone! He’s busy. With Korean ****”

    “Yeah I’ll beat your **** off with both hands, let’s go”

    “I’ve never prayed before so I don’t know how to finish this. End. End?”

    “That’s... a baton penis!”

    “Go! Go! Stayyyy.... hurrrggnnn you’re so hot!!!!”

    “Put that tongue back in... and you... no wait, that’s pretty good”

    It’s aged superbly too. I really can’t think of any better modern comedy.

    22 Jump Street - 7/10. This has plenty of laughs but less heart. Schmidt’s character is a bit whinier and less likeable. Also the tone of the film seems to be ‘very self aware’ and fourth wall breaking. Funny in its own way but not close to touching the first.

    I watched MIB International earlier today. Quite a decent movie, 6/10. Most enjoyable for me in the movie was Tessa Thompson, definitely got a crush on her for some reason :D

    Love this. Can't remember if it's 21 or 22 with the end roller counting up through the sequels. So funny :p

    It’s 22 with that ending. Love it when Seth Rogan shows up :D

    Another great funny / feel good line from the end of 21:
    getting the rights down together.... do you understand these rights as they have been read to you? **** you!!!!!
