Guardians of the Tomb [AKA 7 Guardians of the Tomb] (2017, dir. Kimble Rendall)

A search for a fabled elixir of youth reveals a network of hidden catacombs. Tatty mash-up of various Raiders, The Mummy, National Treasure and Alien sequels. Fun if you take a drink with each movie borrowing spotted, otherwise wholly avoidable.

Final Score (2018, dir. Scott Mann)

An American ex-soldier battles Eastern European separatists holding a football stadium to ransom. Hugely enjoyable Die Hard knockoff that doesn’t take itself too seriously, and which delivers in genre terms, as well as in representing football pretty well in a movie. Fun.

Avengers: Infinity War (2018, dir. Anthony Russo & Joe Russo)

The Avengers and the Guardians of the Galaxy team up with others to prevent Thanos obtaining all the infinity stones. Dayglo all-star Marvel tag-team mash-up. For series fans only; tho it’s kinda fun while it’s on, CG fights get dull. TV, not a movie.

Jumanji: Welcome To The Jungle (2017, dir. Jake Kasdan)

Four teens are transported into an old video game. Contrived but fun sequel to the 1996 movie, which gets a lot of comedy out of its avatar/body-swap shtick, though the actual story is as linear as the games it spoofs. eXistenZ for kids, almost.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986, dir. Tobe Hooper)

An ambitious DJ and a vengeful sheriff hunt the Sawyer family. Scattershot sequel, foregrounding black comedy, gore effects, and a subversion of Reaganite family values. Gleeful rather than good or scary, it nevertheless has a few startling moments.

101 Dalmations II: Patch’s London Adventure (2003, dir. Jim Kammerud & Brian Smith)

Cruella de Vil attempts again to steal and kill the puppies; one dog stands alone. OK straight-to-DVD sequel, heavy on London cliches, slapstick, and cutesy pooches. No classic, certainly, but inoffensive fun nevertheless.

Incredibles 2 (2018, dir. Brad Bird)

Elastigirl works to redeem public perception of superheroes, while Mr Incredible wrestles with baby Jack-Jack’s burgeoning powers. Perhaps overlong and overly-similar to the first film, this is nevertheless expertly-designed and executed family entertainment.
