So June was, frankly, ridiculously long... and I'm fairly certain at least one film was lost to the sands of time! Hopefully, over the next few weeks, that will all be changing - including a new writing method I've trialled a little bit this month (we'll see how it goes). Until then, on we roll, with yet another barrage of ill ordered words and thoughts!

tl;dr: A decent bridge film with some very powerful moments that does suffer from having to focus on the less interesting story arcs of the book.
tl;dr: The epic payoff to the darkness of the last few films, creating a cracking ending to a classic franchise. Magical!
tl;dr: A gritty, brooding, ageing Batman who doesn't roll his punches, resulting in an impactful tale with some interesting analysis on whether Bruce has done more harm than good, in the long run.
tl;dr: Enjoyable, archaic superhero fare that unfortunately pales in comparison to more modern outings.
tl;dr: Beautifully drawn, animated, composed, directed and crafted with a whole bucket-load of heart. Watch this film!
tl;dr: Not much more than the CD, but well worth a watch if you love musical comedy.
tl;dr: A solid third round, building on the strengths of its prequels whilst maintaining a strong identity of the original franchise. Highly enjoyable, but not groundbreaking.
tl;dr: Genuinely funny and far more original than I had hoped for, a fantastic watch for any genre/comedy fans. Hopefully many more seasons to follow.
tl;dr: Cleverly refocuses the increasingly sprawling story back onto the central character, allowing some much-needed closure alongside a growing sense of purpose. Riveting, exciting stuff.
