Divergent

Rating: 3.25 of 5   My rating of Divergent would make it seem like a nice, average, run of the mill kind of movie. But if you read my full review you’ll see it’s actually a slightly impressive adaption. Because apparently…

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire

Rating: 3.5 of 5   My review for Catching Fire is littered with recommendations of other (better) books. It’s the sort of thing I would normally reserve for this post where I go a little off topic but I just couldn’t…

The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

Rating: 3.5 of 5   My review of the second Hobbit film is kind of vague and philosophical more than my usual analysis. Because there’s not much to say. This has the feel of a story pulled apart and so half…

Thor – The Dark World

Rating: 4 of 5  My review for Thor The Dark World is up. I don’t know if it’s the presence of Joss Whedon or the increasing pressure from the fans to release a movie about a female superhero but it’s interesting…
