Bridget Jones's Baby - actually better than the previous version. Quite funny in places and it's good to see the characters back. Sort of a shame that Hugh Grant decided not to do this one, but Patrick Dempsey makes up for him. It's pretty decent for light entertainment. I know it deviates a lot from the books(which I haven't read). The door is left open for another sequel.

Watched the 'reboot' Robocop with trepidation (mainly cos the missus wouldn't watch it) and was neither impressed or disappointed. It simply wasn't a patch on the original , yet wasn't all that bad as an action film on its own.

Sonic Boom

I keep singing the phrases of this toon, it has a load of in jokes that poke fun at Sonics past fails and fan base

This weeks episode had a Matrix reference (will kids these days know what that film is?) and this

Amys Sonic doll that she has "For totally legitimate reasons and not for anything creepy" to distract Robotnick while the boys are away

Kinda looks a bit like

Resident Evil Vendetta - better than I was expecting. First half was actually really decent, with some good atmosphere and jump scares. Second half goes full on RE6 though, with action scenes that Micheal Bay would consider a bit OTT.

Beasts of the Southern Wild - a six year old girl is faced with the harsh realities of life after a natural disaster and her ailing father's health. I think it's meant to comment on Hurricane Katrina. This film have got a lot of rave reviews from the critics, but I have to say that I thought it was a bit pretentious and quite boring in places.

Mechanic: Resurrection

Pile of poop. First one was pretty decent with having a plot and a narrative. This one is just the Stath killing people as usual.

The Two Doctors' - it's quite a long, drawn-out story which drags on many occasions. It's highlights are the fact that Troughton makes his appearance and Nicola Bryants figure, BUT THE DIRECTION is ABYSMAL! Even though he has Nicola looking so sensational he fails to frame her in shot as he should, he doesn't give us lingering shots of her beauty or capture the sheer sexiness of her in that costume to best effect - yeah his direction is deadeningly slow and two-dimensional, what a blockhead! ;)

The Raid 2 - this time around, a young police officer is coerced into infiltrating a gang and gets involved in a turf war. There's a bit more story in this film compared to the original. It's very violent in places! It does earn its 18 certificate. I actually liked it more than the previous film.

I've got the feeling that one or two people on there, might not welcome me.

Anyway, to be ready for Twin Peaks : The Return - I re-watched Twin Peaks : Fire Walk With Me. I had only seen this once before. It was even better than I remembered it. Superb central performance from Sheryl Lee. The last terrible seven days of Laura Palmer's life are played out. It's bleak and some of David Lynch's best work as a film. I can't believe it got such a pasting when it was released.

Wise choice.

I went to see Baby Driver in the cinema, wonderfully original and entertaining movie from start to finish. The critics are bang on with this one.

Last night I re-watched the film with the guy who drives a beige Volvo - yeah, The Rock. It's strange then that Nicholas Cage's character is so good with a Ferrari 355. Also, explain how a Humvee can outrun a Ferrari 355 around the streets of San Francisco? :lol: Anyway, we get to see Sir Sean Connery playing Bond again(effectively) - and what's not to like about a film containing "green smoke"! It shows that at one time - Michael Bay could actually make decent films - this and Bad Boys.

Marvel's Agents of SHIELD season four.

Absolutely brilliant. A programme that manages to get better each season.
