A massive disappointment...

Spotlight

9.0

2015, Drama, History, Suspense

Deals with an incredibly sinister true story and it handles it in a way similar to the real life investigation it’s depicting sparring no details.

Ride Along 2

5.0

2016, Action, Comedy

Was amusing enough for it’s running time but it’s also instantly forgettable and something I’m unlikely to revisit.

2016, Comedy

Whilst Efron and De Niro are as likeable as they can be they can’t rescue this painfully unfunny comedy from it’s crude and immature nature...

A dumb popcorn movie which is entertaining in parts but it could have done with being a little more fun.

I really did enjoy my time watching this movie and there are enough good moments throughout the film to warrant the price of admission.

5.0

2015, Drama, Comedy

It failed to ever draw me into this mad world of banking and business due to it’s cameos and constant breaking of the fourth wall.

6.5

2015, Drama, Comedy

Performed very well by its cast but it’s inconsistent narrative lets it down which is a real shame as when the film is good, it’s very good.

A cracking opening, good character rivalry and some good performances mean that there is plenty to praise here.

Far from the perfect Christmas movie but it’s sure something a little more refreshing for cinema audiences in recent years.
