    Pacific Rim - 6/10

    Big robots vs big monsters. Fun film.

    Escape Room - 5/10

    People turn up to an Escape Room and it goes all Cube on them. Cube is better.

    Six Minutes to Midnight - 4/10

    Interesting story, but very oddly executed. It started out fairly well, but then it seemed like the director couldn't work out whether it wanted to be a camp carry on type yarn or a serious historical drama. Some of the chase scenes with Izard's character were just bizarre.

    The whole thing just felt weird in places, and sadly i think with some different direction and a more serious tone, it could have been pretty good.

    First Man 8/10
    Following Neil Armstrong's career from Gemini to the Apollo moon landing, plus a fair bit about his family.

    Nobody - 7.5/10 Cracking little action movie.

    Love and Monster

    A hero's journey set against a wonderfully nonsensical post-apocalyptic world with delightfully creative insects, toads, crabs, etc. as scaled up monsters. Drags a bit in the middle, but there's enough fun in there to make it enjoyable.

    Fun enough 7/10.

    The Final Girls. Enjoyable take on the horror genre.

    I also watched Love and Monsters and would agree that it was a fun little film that didn't seem to aim too high and met it's mark just right. 3/5

    All the recent talk of Love & Monsters, I rewatched with my missus lately and to save time, i'll quote my own review from October last year.

    Shin Godzilla

    About 80% of this movie seemed to be a lot of people in large rooms sitting around tables flapping their gums. Godzilla itself was comical looking as were the effects for the most part. Japan still seems to have a raging stiffy for the rubber suit style.

    I Tonya. 9/10

    Margot Robbie, what an amazing actress.
    Great movie, and no shortage of the c word. I knew nothing about Tonya Harding before.

    I, Tonya is a good movie. Aside from the obvious reasons, Margot Robbie is one of my favourite actors.

    Yeah, I think I've only ever seen her in Z for Zachariah but was surprised to see her playing a character like Tonya Harding. She's brilliant.

    Talking of brilliant, just watched

    Sexy Beast. 9/10. When I saw Ben Kingsley playing a cockney gangster I wondered why they cast him but he was incredible, so intense.

    The Mauritanian, on Netflix. Hadn't really come across this until my brother in law recommended it. Good watch and enjoyed it. Tahar Rahim (A Prophet, 2011) was excellent. 8/10

    Ace Ventura: Pet Detective - 10/10

    Great film, responsible for some stuff that I still quote when situationally-appropriate ("Lllllike a glove!", "if I'm not back in five minutes, just wait longer!" :D).

    Same here, love it, watched countless times and the amount of lines I can quote from it is disturbing. 2nd isn't all that bad either tbf.

    I'd like to 'ass' you a few questions :D
