Thor: Ragnarok

Just too glib and full of wisecracks to enjoy it as much as the original

(Edit) 30/10/2018

It may be just the sort of light-hearted film you want on a Saturday night but for me this focused too much on the laughter and not on the drama.

The story is ok and the special effects good. But just not what I was looking for.

Very much as a result of the director's vision as you will see if you watch the extras.

Ok, but glad I didn't go to the cinema and spend that much more on watching it.

Miss Sloane

Interesting subject and some excellent performances, stick with it.

(Edit) 19/03/2018

Only negative in my mind is that it is about 20 mins or so too long, some of the storyline lags a little. But a few twists and turns in the film keep it interesting and there are some great performances. Particularly the lead who delivers a convincing character who is driven but you are never quite sure what she is prepared to do to achieve a result in her favour.

So worth watching if you like films you can get involved in.

And of course a very topical subject - Gun control and the influence of lobbyists and organisations like the NRA!

Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol.2

Good lightweight fun

(Edit) 29/11/2017

Let's face it you know you are not going to have to concentrate too hard to follow this film. It is generally good fun. All the characters are pretty well defined, the special effects are good and there are some good laughs too.

A little long and the storyline feels a little padded out but overall a safe bet for an evening in.

Yes Baby Groot is cute and so is the feisty 'raccoon' but my favourite character is Drax. For a big bloke who you don't expect to be there for his acting abilities he does a really good job and has some of the best lines.

Fences

Undoubtedly well acted, entertaining maybe but...

(Edit) 20/11/2017

This clearly would have been better seen as a play, the opening half hour or so just seemed too static and it just wasn't clear where the whole thing was going.

The acting was very good but did it grip me, no. Did I find it entertaining, no. Is it what I wanted for a Saturday night film, no.

I think you would have to be in the right mood for this or really like the subject or the style of film. I certainly am not against deep well thought out films but this just dragged for me.
