"American Christmas comedy horror film based upon the eponymous character from Germanic folklore"
Not funny enough to be a comedy and not scary enough to be a decent horror this was just very meh. 1/5
"Suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder, a security guard utilises his training as a French special forces soldier to protect the wife and son of a shady Lebanese businessman."
This portrayed PTSD in a thoughtful and interesting way and made for a well acted suspenseful drama. 3/5
"Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele star in this comedy as two friends posing as drug dealers to get back a stolen cat."
I love Key and Peele and have been wanting to see this film as soon as it was announced. If you enjoy the duo's sketches and movie parodies then you will love this. 4/5
The Boy (2016)
"Greta is a young American woman who takes a job as a nanny in a remote English village, only to discover that the family's 8-year-old is a life-sized doll that the parents care for just like a real boy"
Although a bit silly I actually quite enjoyed this horror film. It was well made and had enough twists to keep it interesting. 3/5
"In this adaptation of the novel "The Price of Salt" by Patricia Highsmith, Therese, a young department-store clerk in 1950s Manhattan, meets Carol , a beautiful older woman stuck in a depressing marriage of convenience. As their bond deepens and they become romantically involved, Carol finds the strength to leave her husband (Kyle Chandler). Unfortunately, her spouse starts to raise questions about her fitness as a mother when he realises that Carol's relationships with her best friend Abby and Therese are more than just friendships. "
I don't know why it took me so long to watch this as I love things set in the 1950s. This film was simply beautiful. Everything about it was stunning- the fashion, visuals, music, acting and the portrayal of love. 4.5/5
Green Room (2016)
"Members (Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat) of a punk-rock band and a tough young woman (Imogen Poots) battle murderous white supremacists at a remote Oregon roadhouse."
This was a fun watch that reminded me a little of 80s action films. 3/5
