Risen, about the ressurection of Jesus. Decent watch but really doesn't stray from the familiar story.

Avengers Endgame. Very good, one of the best in the series. Don't want to say much else.

Avengers Endgame- fantastic. Hats off to Marvel for barely showing anything in the trailers, this felt like the least spoiled modern movie I've ever seen, everything truly was a visual spoiler. Maybe one or two iffy parts but that only made up like 2% of the movie and its been a long time I've seen a cinema audience applauded at the end, clapping as the credits rolled.

Rightfully the biggest and grandest Superhero movie you'll ever see. If you have seen all or even just a bunch of these films, you owe it to see this one, and as quick as you can.

End game, fitting end though a little slow at the start. Still, how the Russo brothers managed to stich that all together is beyond me. See it before some idiot ruins it for you!

The Game of Thrones episode frustrated me. I felt it too dark to see anything, the kills were fast and frantic where I couldn't see who was being killed. The dragon fights were all over the place and i couldn't see who was on what dragon and where. The last half hour though was great and a fitting ending. Hopefully its not the high point and Cersei will be another fine fight. Ive a bad feeling that the saviour at the end will have their downfall in the next fight.

I knew it would be dark and i'm 'kinda' glad they stuck with that as it was a nightime type of war. Watched it on Sky one and it was fine on the big tv, my mate watched a dodgy copy (not saying you did) and said it did suffer.

Cant wait for the other episodes now, that was one was just great. Hope the final episodes are of the same high quality

Dead Pixels (E4) - very good comedy based around three friends who play a fictional MMORPG called Kingdom Scrolls. Hope it gets another series.

The Wailing. Korean mystery horror, well made and engaging for a pretty long film.

Fury, with Brad Pitt. Solid WW2 movie, it was a good watch but I'm not sure what more these types of war films have left to say that hasn't been said already.

Started an Israeli show on Netflix called Fauda. It's an action thriller series about a counter terrorism unit, 2 episodes in and pretty good so far.

I thought this weeks GOT was pretty good. It wasn't perfect and I agree with some of what RetroAerosmith said, but I still enjoyed it overall.

The Zookeepers Wife - On Netflix. WW2 movie about the real life couple who owned the Warsaw zoo and their use of the facilities to hide Jews. Much better then I was expecting.

Ricky Gervais in After Life, quite touching for him! Game of thrones and Line of Duty.

Wandering Earth. Glossy sci-fi disaster movie from China. Looked great but I didn't really care for the characters, it was ok.

Ip Man 3. Some good fights but not as good as the previous films. Worth a watch if you're into kung fu films or intrigued by the casting of Mike Tyson, who actually isn't as terrible as I expected.

Avengers: Endgame.

Was it a 5/5 movie that the reviews made it out to be? Not for me. Was it the film that needed to be made to wrap up eleven years of storytelling? Pretty much I reckon.

It had fantasic moments and not so fantastic moments but overall I enjoyed it.
