Ant man and the Wasp (with our boiii) Felgekarp or whatever you youngsters say! Pretty good, some laughs but also a bit throwaway.

The League season one.

Comedy series about some friends who are in a fantasy American Football league. First season was only six episodes long and had some decent moments. Going to give season two a shot and see how it goes as there are seven seasons overall.

Train To Busan. Pretty good Korean zombie movie, one of the better recent examples of a genre I'm getting a bit sick of hearing about.

the hunger games mockingjay part two

two excellent set pieces but unfortunately at the end there was less gravitas in the mascinations of the two enemies to really feel grounded, and it's beat timings too were completely off! meaning the ending of it was far too lacklustre .....

maybe next time someone does this story it can be a simple trilogy with the actual games as FLASHBACKS?

Justice League. Very much a poor man's Avengers but to be fair it wan't as bad as I was braced for. I'd say the first third or so is pretty good, but by the end it just seemed like every other unremarkable CG action adventure. It's a shame how they managed to make some cool characters, setting and premises so meh by the end.

Megaman, the new toon

Its decent, obviously aimed at kids, but with the odd nod

Upgrade.

Brilliant film. Watch it immediately. You won't be disappointed.


Also watched Deadpool 2 and Jumanji remake. Both were pretty good.

Inglorious basterds.
Really enjoyed it. Liked that you never quite knew what was gonna happen. Tarantinos trademark cinematic tics didn't grate too much either, probably cos I've not seen one of his films in a long time

Disenchantment
To put it into perspective, its like the last few series of Simpsons, or completely mixed with a lot of jokes that dont work
