Re: Joker

Best film of the year so far. Don't understand why so many American critics though it was pro capitalism

Re: Late Night

Unfunny comedy about an egotistical show host more interested in her ratings than her ailing husband.

Re: Wonder

Saw film stars don't die in Liverpool on Sunday and this on Monday. No wonder I'm dehydrated.

Re: Going in Style

Mediocre remake of the classic 1979 film. Try and check it out. George Burns at his best.

Re: War On Everyone

Film written and performed by people who think this project was cool. Oh how wrong they were. This movie was embarrassing for all concerned. Can't wait to see what rotten tomatoes thinks of it.

They also stated the film started at 10.30 even though it said 11.00am on my ticket. When same thing happened at the Braehead Odeon we were give...

Not my cup of diesel. Kept looking at my watch. It didn't mention they both shared a flat together in London. 5/10
