    Sideways (2004) 9/10
    A modern comedy classic. A smart, and honest, if depressing at times study of the ugly side of masculilty. Great performances, wonderful jokes and oberservations, and actually truly romantic at times. The pacing is spot-on. And they make wine nerds engaging!:p

    Spider-Man: Homecoming 8/10

    A fresh look at a story we all know a million times over. There's no Uncle Ben, no spider bite, no discovery of powers; this is a superhero story that's already been set up. We know who Peter is, we know he helped Team Iron Man in Civil War (the links to that movie are here, and they're fab!). This is very reminiscent of a John Hughes coming-of-age story about a teenage Peter, struggling at school, struggling with great powers and great responsibility.

    Tom Holland is a great Peter and a great Spider-Man. It's as funny as you'd expect and it has a lot of heart. Sure, it's a formula well-tread and don't mistake this for anything other than a Sony movie (it's Sony's name above the door, not Marvel's!), but the fact we see Spider-Man with the Avengers is honestly what the fans deserve. I just wish they gave Aunt May more to do than just get hit on by multiple men. Marisa Tomei is a fantastic actress - hopefully the inevitable sequel will give her more. :)
     
    Bluebird: And Sony's name on every piece of technology in the movie. Sony movies are awful in general for product advertising though. So clumsy at it lol

    Spot-on. Her character was never defined for me. Didn't you find the bit when she drove Peter and Ned to the party and was encoreging Peter to basically give in to the changes to his body a bit odd for a aunt?:D

    War for the Planet of the Ape (2017) 9/10
    A beautiful and poetic finish to one of the most compelling film series' of recent times. Again fantastic stop motion and visual work, strong character depth, and the pacing of the story was spot on. Woody Harrelson was a chilling villain too. The music was great too. I'd say my second favourite of the series behind Dawn.

    Cars 3 (2017) 4/10
    Lazy, shallow and a cynical sequel. I expect better from a Pixar movie.

    Is it also a knock off Rocky 3? That's what I got from the trailer.

    Oh possibly didn't pick up on that. The plot has been done a million times before in other films. The gimmick barely worked in the first film IMO, so two more is really dragging it out.

    I just saw a beach training session in the trailer and instantly thought Rocky 3. I've got the first Cars film at home somewhere, watched a few minutes I think but it seemed like a strictly for kids animation.

    Probably yeah. But even that first film when you consider the standards Pixar has set itself isn't good enough.
