Cinema day yesterday:
Bad Education Movie: 3/10 I knew it was going to be shit before I even went in, but it fit in with my times. Not seen the show, but thought I'd give it a go anyway. Predictable gags, tries to be shocking, but fails massively.
Man from U.N.C.L.E: 8/10 Heard mixed reviews about it. I actually really enjoyed it. I was a fan of the original show when I was growing up (re-runs obviously). While it wasn't ground breaking, it captured the tongue-in-cheekness of the show. It looked nice, I enjoyed the chemistry between Henry Cavill and Armie Hammer. It was also the only Guy Richie film since Snatch that I've found watchable (still think he peaked at Lock Stock). Only downside is that a major client went down at work, and since I put the infrastructure in, I had to take a call half way through the film missing about 15 minutes
May go see it again tomorrow..
Absolutely Anything: 6/10 Didn't really know anything about this before going in. Was a bit silly, but had a few decent gags, and Kate Beckinsale is always watchable
Trainwreck: 8/10 Totally predictable plotwise, but not too sentimental. Amy Schumer is very likeable, and the chemistry was there with Bill Hader. Some good gags, some even cutting close to the bone, without delving to the depths of the sewers like Bad Education.
Fantastic 4: 1/10 Dull, humourless mess of a movie. What little plot there was made no sense. No attempt at character development. No chemistry between the leads. Nothing memorable about the 'characters', ridiculous dialogue. Felt like a bargain bin B movie rather than a major studio film. Whoever allowed it to be released should probably be fired.
