X-Men: First Class - Enjoyable watch though Shaw and his villians felt bordering cartoon at times. Much prefered the stuff with Charles and Erik.

Ant-Man - Great cast and funny at times but my god it was so Marvel formulaic it was ridiculous.

Kick-Ass 2

Didn't enjoy it as much as the first one but still worth a mindless watch.

I felt the same about it, it was decent enough but not close to the first, although I really did like Jim Carey in it.

Watched Housebound tonight as our Halloween choice of horror film (it is available on Netflix). I didnt know much about it but it turned out to be one of the best horror comedies I have seen.  Many of the scares worked really well, the comedy moments were very good and the over all mystery had some great twists.  Also, while many horror films tend to finish weakly, this culminated in a brilliant, hilarious and seriously gory sequence that had me laughing out loud frequently.  It also has the best use of a cheese grater in a film.

Would recommend as it is a really great, fun horror film.

I watched Spectre last weekend. 

It was an ok action flick but not a great Bond film. Skyfall was much better.

Saw The Good Dinosaur today. It was very basic but still fairly enjoyable. The animation is fantastic in it with some truly lovely shots. But it also mixes in real life footage too along with a very cartoony main character which can be jarring. The story never becomes more than a journey plot line which is far too similar to other dino movies like Land Before Time or Dinosaur. At least Pixar do pull out more fantastic characters as usual.

Super - Liked it but probably could have been a little longer as was very fast paced to get to the end.

Still Life - Liked this as well, Eddie Marsan great as usual.

Horns - Too long, didn't really know what it wanted to be.
Gold - Pretty predictable.

Saw Christmas with the Coopers tonight and it was fucking awful. Imagine everything you would enjoy from a Christmas movie...then imagine the complete opposite and you have this film. It's depressing, annoying, painful to watch. I don't have one good thing to say about it.

Some stuff that I've seen before.

Josie and the Pussycats - Not as funny a I remember but still enjoyable
MI: Ghost Protocol - Enjoyable but dumber than I remember
Avengers Assemble - Third or fourth time that i've watched this and still enjoy it each time.

New stuff.

Haywire - Good cast, dull film.
The Voices - Wasn't really sure what to expect and didn't much enjoy.
The Lego Movie - Fun and humourous but over-hyped in my opinion.
The Guest - Didn't know what to expect from it, at a guess a gritty film about a psychopath who stays with a family. What it turned out to be was a homage to 80's action/horror films.

Saw a very advanced screening of Zootropolis today, the latest Disney movie out in March. It's quite a complex movie actually, and is like a buddy cop movie. Some of it, in particular Breaking Bad references didn't seem entirely child friendly to me! But they did a good job creating a vivid world inhabited by animals and there's lots of current pop culture references. It's a good movie but nothing special.

Caught a screening of Deadpool in central London today. The first 30 minutes couldn't have been more perfect. It's got such a great opening that totally sums up every facet of Deadpool. It's brilliant. It's also a frantic and energetic action scene and so much funnier than any comedy movie I've watched recently. Sadly it doesn't retain that high energy throughout. It is essentially just an origin movie sandwiched between two action scenes and the ending one isn't quite as good as what precedes it, but it's still pretty good, retains its humour and fourth wall meta-ness (oh the self referential stuff is just tops!), and just the fact that they succeeded in making an authentic and great Deadpool movie is what really matters.

Awesome! I should be seeing it next week. I don't have too high hopes because I tend to get bored of Deadpool as a character quite quickly. Looks like it should at least be a more faithful adaptation of the character than the one in X-Men Origins: Wolverine  Laughing

Saw Dads Army last night and quite enjoyed it. I'm not really a fan of the series but you don't need to be to enjoy the movie - it's very self contained. It's also very British and has a charming and silly sense of humour

Captain America: The Winter Soldier.

First time I've seen it since the cinema and pleased to say that it's still a damn fine film.

Not really sure about this one, was alright I suppose.

Finally saw Deadpool today.

Humerous with good action but a little bit over hyped in my opinion.

Saw Batman V Superman yesterday and I really enjoyed it. It's nowhere near as bad as the reviews make it out to be. It's not perfect but there are worse superhero movies. If you liked Man of Steel it is essentially more of the same so use that as your barometer. It also does a good job of building the DC Cinematic Universe a bit more. A couple of bits in particular gave me tingles. 

Finally Gal Gadot's Wonder Woman is amazing for what little screen time she gets. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of her upcoming movie soon!

Hobo with a Shotgun. Was enjoyable in a way, probably more so if I was drunk or high.

Saw Eddie the Eagle tonight and loved it. It really makes your heart soar, as the posters say. It treats ski jumping with the glamour of F1, but has the charm of a typical Brit flick with the added cool and sex appeal of Hugh Jackman. It's humorous, fun and chipper and a bit like Deadpool, a low budget movie that deserves all its success.
