How I Met Your Mother

One of the best sitcoms ever. Season eight feels a little tired, but it pulls it back for the finale and provides what I feel is an extremely satisfying ending. I will miss these characters and I'm sure will revisit the show in the future.

The Lego Batman Movie

A clever look at both Batman and superhero motifs in general tied together in a funny, clever kids movie with a surprising amount of heart.

Mortdecai

It just doesn't work. I'm not sure why, but the humour falls flat, the plot is banal and the end product leaves you utterly indifferent. The definition of meh.

Planet Hulk

An interesting enough film but the problem is that the source material is just far superior. Read that, skip this.

Hamlet

A fantastic Hamlet, with some interestingly modern tweaks that largely hits the mark.

Interstellar

A fun enough romp that lacks Nolan's signature intelligence whilst skirting around the much more interesting story occurring in the background.

Battleship

Not quite so-bad-it's-good, but close; a crazy attempt to turn a pretty linear board game into a movie which largely misses but occasionally lands a hit (yeah, Battleships reference).

Ender's Game

Read the book; it's a story that deserves to be experienced unadulterated. If you have already done so, there isn't much more for you here.

Justice League: Doom

A solid film with a couple of plot holes. If you're willing to wave these as standard comic book thinking then the remainder is highly enjoyable.

The Hateful Eight

The first half proves Tarantino is the master of suspense, whilst the second half throws it all away for a healthy dose of hyper-violence. Fun but could have been so much better.

Sherlock

A continuing masterpiece that hits the ground running, slips a bit and then rises to the challenge magnificently. There have been few shows to rival Sherlock in the history of television and no matter definitive take on the characters themselves.
