This film is slow, and thoughtful, and introspective and really, on the face of it, nothing much happens. So I can totally see that this’ll be a film people love or hate. I thought it was brilliant. Firstly, I was in exactly the right mood for this. Tired after an exhausting week, just watching someone go about their day was soothing.

I wasn’t expecting to like this. In my head, I feel like I’ve had mixed responses to Guy Ritchie’s gangster-style work and I wasn’t sure this was going to be any good. I was so wrong. I loved it! Hugh Grant is incredible in this, slimy and sneaky, but bouncing so well off Charlie Hunnam’s implacable, quiet and stern character.

Based on nothing but my faith in Roland Emmerich, I purchased this film and was quite looking forward to it. What a let down! It made no sense, bombing sequence after bombing sequence, flitting here and there, and not really making any progress with the plot. They were explaining things but I couldn’t follow it.

It was good! I’ve been trying to avoid most things Star Wars in anticipation of the film so I hadn’t realised there was such a negative reaction to this movie, I can’t really see what’s wrong with it? Good story, great characters, huge respect to Carrie Fisher, fun new creatures, interesting twist to the Rey story, and a big battle scene at the end. Sounds pretty Star Wars to me.

It was very similar to the first in terms of crazy action sequences within the game, lots of over-acting, great fun seeing the characters inhabiting different bodies at different times (although a bit confusing) and underneath it all, an actually heart-warming story about friends and growing up (either to adulthood, or coming to terms with growing older).
