|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. Also they have ramped up what made the first film so great for me (the off-beat humour and great soundtrack) to a point where it now makes it a bit too goofy and inconsistent. It's still great fun though with great production and soundtrack (just used a little more sparingly please). Baby Groot just steals every scene."
|40 T3||The Discovery (2017) - Apr 25, 2017
"It's just so dull and lifeless. It doesn't fully explore its main concept, every other line of dialogue seems to be some form of exposition and then the big reveal at the end just comes out of nowhere and is fairly confusing. Everyone is pretty dreary in this too and just seem to mope about from scene to scene. Points for the afterlife stuff but everything else didn't really float my boat."
|75 T8||Chicago (2002) - Apr 23, 2017
"Seems I liked it a lot more than others. It has a few problems but I really liked the editing with the dream sequences and the interplay between them and reality, and of course the music was pretty top notch. Yeah, I can see why it won Best Picture but maybe I'm just a sucker for intelligent use of music in a film."
|70 T7||The Nice Guys (2016) - Apr 20, 2017
"Who knew Gosling had this in him? Love the offbeat, deadpan humour but it was a little more hit and miss than I would have liked. The film did drag a bit on occasion too but there's quite a lot to love here."
|50 T4||Heathers (1989) - Apr 18, 2017
"I'm sorry, what? I see what it's trying to do but not really my cup of tea"
|72 T8||The Perks of Being a Wallflower (2012) - Apr 17, 2017
"Similar to my last rating, 13 Reasons Why, in a few ways (and incidentally an inspiration for me to go on to watch this). It's the emotion, the characters and the musicality of the soundtrack that are the focal points of this. It is all wrapped in a script that does regrettably go a bit too cliché in places, but the essence of the film keeps it grounded."
|70 T7||13 Reasons Why (2017) - Apr 16, 2017
"It's bold, definitely thought-provoking and there's a lot of good performanes with good characters. While there's lots to appreciate, it's a bit uneven in quality primarily in its overall tone and its storytelling. However, juggling all of the issues in this is no easy feat and the fact a show with this kind of subject matter and exposure even exists is pretty fresh. Not sure how it will hold up for the inevitable second season."
|62 T6||How I Met Your Mother (2005) - Apr 14, 2017|
|78 T9||Legion (2017) - Apr 14, 2017
"A darker, more psychological yet fresher exploration of the Marvel universe which is truly wacky and wonderful. Aubrey Plaza is something else in this too. Minor quibbles aside, this is a pretty great series and I'm definitely tuning in to season 2."
|72 T8||My Life as a Zucchini (2016) - Apr 14, 2017
"Having watched the original version, it really irks me that they've named this My Life As A Zucchini in English... I do think a longer running time to flesh out the story and emotions would've made the ending more impactful as it does seem a bit rushed in places. The characters are great though and represent a lot of dark yet realistic backgrounds. Definitely worth a watch."
