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.

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.

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.

The Five-Year Engagement

Wonderfully funny and nicely composed, a thoroughly enjoyable movie. Also: aye yay-ay-yay-ay-yay-ay-yay-yaaaaaa!

JLA Adventures: Trapped in Time

Fun enough but not really anything new or particularly interesting.

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.

Lucy

Not as bad as anticipated but still not overly worthwhile. Some interesting visual effects and a great actress don't make up for a silly plot and pointless action sequences.

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).

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.

Treasure

It’s a Dirk Pitt novel. That should tell you everything you need to know, except this one has a more interesting villain than normal.
