|60 T5||Cars 3 (2017) - Jun 21, 2017
"After the car crash Pixar had with Cars 2, I have to admit I was pleasantly surprised with this. I like the technology revolution side to the story and I did like Cruz as a character but there are still some major flaws. It's all just quite safe and lukewarm overall, and I still don't care too much about Lightning McQueen - he's just not a strongly written character. The only time I got a genuine emotional response from him was the famous Wilson 'Wow' lines which isn't even a McQueen trait."
|22 T2||Baywatch (2017) - Jun 17, 2017
"It really can't sustain a single scene without a failed gag or a weird comment. Pretty crass and just generally awful but don't think I really expected anything better."
|72 T8||Once (2007) - Jun 16, 2017
"The music drives this - so emotionally raw and engaging that I found myself forgetting about everything but the moment these two unnamed characters were sharing. Annoyingly, as much as I enjoyed the simplicity of this film, I was still left wanting a touch more. I wanted more depth to the plot and a bit more development to the characters. Their music does tell you all you need to know really, but I did kind of want a bit more of an arc. Still good stuff though!"
|60 T5||Anastasia (1997) - Jun 15, 2017|
|75 T8||Wonder Woman (2017) - Jun 06, 2017
"I was so worried I didn't like this movie but I'm glad to be proven wrong. Slight overuse of CGI and slow-mo, caricature villains and other general qualms from DC and superhero movies in general but this is fresh, stylish and has a surprising amount of depth and emotion at times. Gal Gadot is great and nails the naive yet strong-willed feel to the character, there's good chemistry with Pine too and generally the overall tone of it all works. It's a great popcorn flick with purpose."
|60 T5||Colossal (2016) - Jun 05, 2017
"I think the thumbnail for this movie aptly sums up my thoughts... Umm it's a very interesting and original concept and I liked certain elements to it, but yeah I'm not a fan of the overall execution really. It's all heavy-handed, full of plot holes and does sort of just become incohesive by the end. A polarising movie from what I've seen and read and I'm slap bang in the middle. "
|80 T9||Rear Window (1954) - May 29, 2017|
|58 T5||Pete's Dragon (2016) - May 24, 2017
"It's difficult for a film like this with such a standard Disney arc and no nostalgia attached to really resonate with me. A few eye-rolling moments of dialogue and a lukewarm narrative don't really make it soar to the heights of other Disney greats. It's ok though I suppose, but there are just a ton of better Disney stories."
|62 T6||Casting JonBenet (2017) - May 10, 2017
"Certainly interesting and a fresh concept on the unsolved crime documentary genre but it comes across as rather self-indulgent and bordering incoherent on occasion and overall it just seems a bit too 'artsy' for my tastes. "
|65 T6||Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 (2017) - Apr 29, 2017
"I preferred the first film overall. This one drags a bit in the middle, feels more chaotic in its plot and some attempts at emotional impact fail to really land. Humour is hit-and-miss at times and the soundtrack, while great, can become a tad overused and both the humour and music have a tendency to undercut the semi-emotional scenes. It's still good fun though with great production and soundtrack (just used a little more sparingly please). Baby Groot just steals every scene."
