Molly's Game

In which Jessica Chastain makes yet another cautionary tale of excess, likeable.

Justice League [IMAX 3D]

Left me extremely confused. I came expecting a Snyder movie and was disappointed I didn't get one. But the Whedon movie filling the gaps was actually ok. Except occasionally it was a bit shit but that didn't seem to matter because it was laughably so. And anyway the whole thing belts along at such a hectic pace in order to fit in the vast amount of information required to necessitate everything happening that it all just mashes into a massive awkward smear of stupidity, wisecracks, CGI, frantic action, slow motion, serious exposition, light bonding and a baddie with a face made of plasticine. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

The Death Of Stalin

A phenomenal cast trading superb insults as they farcically recreate hideously bleak bulletpoints from a part of history i'm ashamed to admit i'm unfamiliar with.

The Killing Of A Sacred Deer

An old school curse rendered all the more chilling by stilted dialogue, the director's obsession with the physiology of aging and the characters eventual blank acceptance of their fate.
