    Anyone here watched Legion Season 1? If you like a more twisted version of X-Men, watch it! So good.

    Watched a few more:

    The Green Inferno:

    Kinda crap tbh, ultra gory in parts. Somewhat entertaining.

    Anthropoid:

    Pretty decent film set in world war 2, great acting based on a true story. Worth a go.

    Bokeh:

    Probably one of the worst films I've ever seen. Terrible.

    The wannabe:

    It's ok...

    Just watched a film called These Final Hours.

    Was really sad and depressing, but at the same time I enjoyed it. Worth a go.

    King Arthur: LotS - Disappointed, sick of movies being let down to accommodate a 12A rating may as well be titled 'Legend of the Baseball Bat'. Enjoyable overall however. 6.5/10
    Wonder Woman:
    Perfect hair always... Gal Gadot is perfect in this role, but didn't really stand out as much as she should have due to writing, Chris Pine carried most of the movie. 8/10
    Lego Batman:
    Uninspiring kids movie, not quite as original as the Lego movie, fun anywaY. 6/10
    The Messenger: Joan of Arc:
    Watched again recently. Not the best Biopic around, but had a strangly good cinematic appeal to it. The action scenes are very lack lustre, but it is a fantastic performance from Milla Jovovich and Dustin Hoffman. Great story and worth watching. 6/10
    Die Hard with a Vengeance:
    Classic action/christmas movie, great performance from Bruce Willis/Sam Jackson, 7/10
    Unbreakable: Another Bruce Willis/Sam Jackson movie, one of my favourites, Though David Dunn is fairly boring, I went back to it after watching split, new revelations to be seen. 8.5/10
    Split:
    I watched this before I realised it was a pre-sequel to Unbreakable 2 (Glass), < while that is kinda a spoiler in itself, it explains why you see Bruce Willis at the end. Starts off slow, but amazing acting and a truly terrifying and suspenseful experience. 7.5/10

    For some reason I've been watching a lot of movies lately:

    Star Wars: Rogue One

    I'm not a fan of the Star Wars franchise but this actually felt like some real thought went into it. In my personal opinion it's one of the strongest movies in the series, however let down slightly because it only really works in the context of the series.

    My verdict: 7/10 - Despite its plots dependance on the saga, it is still the strongest Star Wars movie in 30+ years.

    Star Trek: Beyond

    I'd heard bad things about this movie, hated all of the other reboots and wasn't a huge fan of the director either, so it was inevitable I was going to hate this film. Yet it surprised me, it felt like an episode of the orginal series. Unlike the other reboots it wasn't all about Kirk, the senior crew really did respect and admire each other. The relationships between Spock, Kirk and Bones felt authentic and plot felt more realistic than the farce that JJ Abrams wrote. However it suffered greatly from over-use of "spinny camera" effects (constant 360 degree camera sweaps in space where there is no fixed point of reference is a fast way to make your audience feel sick) and the whole "loud music blows up enemies" was just lazy and retarded. That all said, for all it's flaws, it was still enjoyable.

    My verdict: 6.5/10 - has it's flaws but more authentic and -for me at least- has more replayability

    Doctor Strange

    It's a Marvel movie. Cumberbatch plays his role brilliantly and while I would rank this as an above average super hero film, it's still your typical Marvel affair.

    My verdict: 7/10 - Good fun for the fans but best avoided if you don't like Marvel

    Fiddler On The Roof

    After all that Sci-Fi I needed a change. For those who don't know the story, Fiddler on the Roof is based on a play and a novel about a Jewish community in western Russia coping with change while holding on tightly to tradition. It's a charming musical with some a lot of laugh out loud moments but at 3 hours long it's not for the casual viewer - particularly with the direction the last hour takes.

    My verdict: 8/10 - Quite unlike anything else I've watched

    Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them

    The cinematography is spot on, however the story is dull compared to Harry Potter and weirdly it felt rushed in places despite the movie feeling slow to progress.

    My verdict: 6/10 - Easily the weakest in the franchise

    They Live

    1980's B-movie fun by John Williams. Everything that's bad about this movie is what makes it so epic. Stupid fun one liners like "I've come here to chew bubblegum and kick ***... and I'm all out of bubblegum.", silly fight scenes and the cheap budget is what makes this so enjoyable. Yet despite it's cheese, it does carry an interesting politic message that is every bit as relevant today as it was back then.

    My verdict: 8/10 - It's daft but it is so much fun

    Heavy Metal

    WTF??? This is the weirdest movie ever. A cartoon that's far too adult for general company but far too stupid for grown ups to watch. Yet I'm weirdly engrossed. I don't know if it's because of the heavy metal sound track, or if it was just because my hangover left me in a brain damaged and highly influenceable state.

    My verdict: I'm still processing this one....

    I watched a movie called Captain Phillips last night.

    Was a bit dissapointing. Started well, then became predictable and American. 5/10.

    The Walking Dead just gets worse and worse each week. I am close to giving up on it completely. If they string Negan out for another season then I doubt I will be watching it again.
    On series 2 of into the badlands, its like some sort of Mad-max / Game of thrones / shogun assassin mash-up. Really enjoying it!

    I've been watching a Jazz brass special on Sky. Good plot but too many trumpets

    I finished watching Bosch series 3. Much better than 2 which felt like a chore to get through. American Gods wasn't as awful as I was expecting.

    Watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 the other evening, absolutely fantastic. The first was one of my favourite marvel movies, the 2nd has cemented that. The humour was carried well by the cast despite how forced it seems, and the cast generally were amazing. (couldnt escape the trumpets at the end however) 8/10

    Also watched the OA series on netflix, took me offguard, certainly something that will divide the audience. If you enjoy drama/thrillers with a twist of fantasy, give it a chance, but I would avoid any spoilers online. 8/10
    Added that to my watchlist a while ago. Haven't actually got around to watching it yet...

    Been watching Troll Hunters with my son. We're both hooked
