Incredibles 2. Pretty good but very slow start for some reason. Also saw Skyscraper last week. Enjoyable nonsense!

Zookeeper. Worst f**king film ever. I've told my son no more Kevin James, unless its Pixels 2.

Sorry to move it from kids films to proper films ;)...

Run Baby Run - Really good. Tons of twists in it, excellent
Shot Caller - Has the bloke from Game of Thrones in it, very good
What is America - Enjoying this series so far, cant believe the way that politician got duped. Ridiculous !

I try to avoid opinion-as-fact statements like this, especially when concerning art and entertainment, but it's not always easy is it.

Anyway finally started watching Killjoys. Really enjoying it, only a few episodes in and looking forward to binge watching this

Watched Pixels with Mrs Ant this aft.

Not terrible, just run of the mill romcom stuff with some videogame refs.

Better than I expected tbh. And Mrs Ant suggested we watch it having seen the trailer.

Pixels was surprisingly watchable given how thin the concept was. A bit like the Battleships movie, a pleasant surprise. Given how bad most videogame movies turn out, both of those are pleasant diversions.
