    Went to see the remake of IT last week.
    Felt a bit like a remake of the Goonies tbh.
    And it was only the 1st half of the book which I didn't realise!

    HAHA! It's had some good write ups and I was thinking of giving it a go but because I'm easy influenced I'm going to go with a four word review on a football message board!

    You might enjoy it, it wasn't Vaughn so much it was just not for me.

    Jo Nesbos' Snowman been panned by the critics - Director admitted to missing shooting 15 scenes - so Jig saw without pieces - might just stick to memories of the book until its on Sky movies

    T2 is a great film and i possibly prefer it to the original which I loved (even though I appreciate Trainspotting is a classic of its generation and the better film).

    It's so well made and the underlying theme of nostalgia and time waiting for no man. The snippets of original soundtrack. Quality !

    Happy Death Day, interesting concept poorly executed, the main actress is stunning though. 4/10

    Indeed, despite being an obvious rip-off of Apocalypse Now.

    What I don't get though is why the apes only have spears and bows in this movie when they already had guns in the previous one?
