Kingsman: The Golden Circle

Some phenomenal, carefully shot action choreography makes for light frothy enjoyment whilst you're watching but a few hours later it all simmers down to an unlikeable morass of unecessary characters, confused drug ethics and callous laddish crassness.

Very pleased to be able to visit the rural multiplex and watch a highly allegorical tale of religion, creation, abusive relationships, the environment and humanity being dicks. Not chuffed with Aronofsky's rampant ego or his heavy handed symbolism. On a par with The Fountain.

Too many characters, too many jump scares and not enough depth, but enough cool moments to let that kind of thing go because it's, y'know, for kids.

American Made

Hollowed out Scorcese. Fun but ultimately empty with an ending that makes you think 'oh good, it ended.'

The Hitman's Bodyguard

Too flippant to be a decent action movie and too violent to be a decent comedy.

Logan Lucky

I know that sitting down for ninety minutes, staring at a glowing rectangle requires very little effort on my part but this is by far the most effortless movie viewing I've ever put myself through.
