Dirty Grandpa

Don't bother. The humour falls flat and the story clearly never got beyond a draft stage. The entire film feels rushed and empty, with no memorable moments to speak of.

A Natural History of Dragons: A Memoir of Lady Trent

A wonderfully illustrated and surprisingly detailed world of fantastic creatures; a great work of fantasy with strong characterisation and some genuinely interesting speculative biology. An instant favourite franchise.

Pacific Vortex

A clear prototype for what would become the long running Dirk Pitt series with little of novel interest. A page turner, nothing more.

Portal 2

A more than worthy successor, with brilliant voice acting, intelligent level design and some very fun new game mechanics.

Bill Bryson’s African Diary

Funny and informative, plus all for a good cause. Can’t really complain.

Wonder Woman (2009)

Diana is actually well written and Nathan Fillion is great as ever, but ultimately Wonder Woman fails to justify its plot in any meaningful way.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

A spectacular and surprisingly intimate look at the characters that usually lurk in the background combines to form an excellent addition to the growing franchise.

Godzilla (2014)

A fun but basic monster movie, where the kaiju have more personality than the humans.

The Magnificent 7

Diversity done, if not right, then certainly better than required in an entertaining, action-packed retelling elevated by an excellent cast.

The Huntsman: Winter's War

A fun fantasy that builds on the best parts of its prequel but never really breaks out of its shadow. Had they been made the other way around, this would be the superior film. As it is, it's just about good enough.

London Has Fallen

Nope. Terrible. Awful. Imbecilic. Nuking the god damn White House would actually be more believable than this plotline. And much more effective!
