    And that was the extent of his (very limited) range.

    Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (3D)-7/10

    Firstly, and probably most importantly, I saw this on a 3D TV and the 3D is phenomenal because the art direction/style of Sin City totally lends itself to 3D.

    The movie looks brilliant and while it has a lot of distasteful moments, it is probably not as powerful, or violent, as the original. That deosn't mean in isn't worth seeing; it is actually a bit more tongue-in-cheek and "light-hearted" (if that's at all possible in a Sin City movie) than the original.

    At least, being a Miller and Rodriguez film, it has heart and story.

    Thor: Ragnarok - 9/10
    Very much enjoyed this, felt much like watching the first Guardians of the Galaxy a very welcome break from the gritty Avengers universe and didn't take itself seriously at all.

    Paddington Bear 2 - 7/10

    Went with family for my son's first cinema trip (he's 2) and was a pretty enjoyable experience with some feels thrown in for good measure.

    Its a good family film, especially for younger kids.

    The Imitation Game-10/10

    A heroic but sad and tragic true story (and one we all probably know).

    Brilliantly acted and, in my opinion, some of the best cinematography for choice of lenses, lighting and overall production values, that I have seen in a long time.

    Jurassic park commentary track by Redlettermedia: 10/10

    My favourite movie anal sis group of the interwebz. If the webz would crash, fakebook and twitturd can go to hell and whatever.. but redlettermedia must remain.

    Alien resurrection 7-7.5/10

    It's been ages I watched this one. Actually, I think I did enjoy it this time. To a certain extent. It's a "been there done that" feeling you get. Ripley is back, yay. But she's nasty now. ok.
    The experiments on the Aliens were a nice touch, and the showcasing of their quick learning/intelligence. The models look ehmm.. somewhat convincing, somewhat corny. The spaceship sometimes have quite a "roger corman" feel to them. But most of the time I don't mind them. Sometimes it's more charming than cgi (.. remember the sw prequels).
    Well, people die... something is born and also dies. It would have been better had the ..humalien thing been born halfway the movie though.
    But whatever, there's some true comedy at the end and I was laughing out loud. Almost hysterically. I swear it said "OH NOOOO'.. but I can't be sure. I'd like to think it did though. Who wouldn't.

    And I like the visual style of the movie: the colours, the hallways, the lighthing. It works. But I sure hope Ripley will never return.
    But I guess she kind of did in the new Alien movie...

    When.. when are they going to make a yoda vs aliens movie; You know, like, Yoda is like all comfortable and lazily sitting on his cozy rock chair.. and then there's an Alien party at the door hissing and spitting venom. And Yoda takes out his little lightsaber and goes to town on them... and he gets showered with acid and...


































































































    and yeah, they all get stoned and party all night long. Then suddenly Luke returns and the Aliens quickly run away to the next Alien movie. And Yoda is all serious business again. And Luke asks him... "didn't you die". And Yoda says the magic word.. disney...

    Justice League - 7.5 / 10
    I enjoyed it. Feel like (of course) the Zack Snyder version would've been 10 times better (I'm not a fan of Joss Whedon) but still enjoyed this.

    "Earth man; what a shithole......."

    The Amazing Spiderman 2: Rise of Electro-6/10


    If anything I think they tried to cram too much story into this film. The plot threads seemed to fall over each other and then fall apart in places.

    Spiderman was done well and it's interesting to see the differences they've created between Peter Parker and the Spiderman alter-ego.

    The plot left me wondering why they even bothered making a third film (Spiderman Homecoming) for the character..... in my opinion this is possibly the weakest of all the Spiderman films (including Sam Raimi's Spiderman trilogy).

    Flightplan-6/10

    I've seen this before and it's a great exercise in paranoia and a reasonably tense thriller. This time watching it it it seemed to rush a bit at the ending. Good acting all around from Jodie Foster, Peter Sarsgaard, Erika Christensen, Kate Beahan, Greta Scacchi, and Sean Bean.

    Silent Running-8/10

    This is a movie that predates Star Wars:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silent_Running

    The director has been very influential in Hollywood sci-fi over the years:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Douglas_Trumbull

    It's also a film I haven't seen in decades so I'd forgotten a lot of the detail although I remembered how it ends. Bruce Dern gives a great performance. For its time it's a pretty unique, but still relevant, film story.

    Devil In a Blue Dress-5/10

    An o.k. crime and conspiracy drama set in L.A. in the late 1940's. Intriguing enough and had some style but not a super-innovative plot.

    National Treasure 2: Book of Secrets-7/10

    Just like the first film in the series this is another fun adventure. It's a shame they never made a third film for this series.

    Maps To the Stars-6/10

    A David Cronenberg film but not written by him. Strange but compellingly watchable.
