Avengers: Age of Ultron
I've been waiting to see this for so long, and it didn't disappoint! There was some great action moments, and I loved the camaraderie between the team and the very amusing downtime moments. There were a couple of things that irked me a bit (Hawkeye's new backstory, and the Banner/Widow thing which seemed too rushed) but I loved Scarlett Witch and Vision. Considering there were SO many character crammed in the film it worked really well, and Hulk smashed a lot so I'm happy! 4.5/5




Nightcrawler
A dark thriller set in LA about Louis Bloom a man who will do or steal anything to get by. Then he discovers the world of crime journalism and freelance camera crews who travel around LA filming car crashes, murders, fires and make big money selling footage to news channels- the gorier the better. This was a thought provoking and disturbing noir look at the news, crime, exploitation, and Blooms quest for success no matter what. 4/5



Begin Again
This was a big cheese fest of a film about a a record label guy with a drinking problem who has lost his job. The he discovers Gretta, a songwriter who has just broke up from her successful musician boyfriend. They decide to record an album on the streets of New York. Then what follows is lots of musical interludes, emotions, James Corden in a hat, singing street kids... yep, cheese radar is reading 11. But Mark Ruffalo is in it, and everyone loves Mark Ruffalo! 1/5 (the 1 is purely for the Ruff!)


Cold in July
Cold in July is a twist filled thriller set in Texas about a man who in panic kills a home intruder. The film looks at how one decision can change everything. The most interesting thing about this was it's retro style to match it's 80's setting.3/5


Mad Max: Fury Road


This film was amazing! Visually epic landscapes and action sequences this film was pretty much one long exciting car chase. In my opinion Charlize Theron stole the show as total badass Furiosa. Definitely a must see at the cinema. 4.5/5
