Clever live action remake of Disney classic, retains much of its original charm and character. Solid casting and strong singing performances all round. A lovely charming film. 😃
A record of the Stones’ 2016 Cuban concert. Straightforward document of the live event, with the Stones on fine form, rattling through a reasonable selection of their better-known hits.
A loser private eye and a professional hard man team up to find a missing girl. Splendid 70s-set comedy-thriller with bags of confidence, great performances, and a zippy script. A solid job all round.
Chief Brody takes on a second shark menacing Amity Island. Teen-oriented sequel to the Spielberg classic which maintains something of the feel of the original, though the story is inevitably second-hand. The original cast (minus Dreyfuss) do their best.
Snowboarders fend off zombies in a ski-lodge. Terrible title, weak jokes, and duff acting aside, this is a tatty-but-endearing one-joke movie which foregrounds gory slapstick and the occasional genuinely inventive visual over logic or story. Passable.
Complete and utter garbage. I wanted to set my eyes and face on fire. Never watch this shit. Ever. 😡
A troubled young woman is possessed by the spirit of a car-crash victim. Autumnal ghost story which is both slight and slow-paced, but which is well-shot, well-acted, and low-key enough to make you focus on what’s going on.
