[Movies of the Month] May

May

NEW RELEASES
Special Correspondents – Plenty of laughs and while predictable in parts, ultimately very enjoyable. ★★★½
Captain America: Civil War – Action-packed from beginning to end, i particularly enjoyed that it answered the question of what happens after the baddies have been caught and the ‘heroes’ have left the scene. ★★★★
Pride and Prejudice and Zombies – Better than I was expecting! It stays faithful to (and enhances in parts) the overall plot with, of course, added zombies. ★★★½
Deadpool – Very entertaining and refreshing to watch a Superhero flick that doesn’t take it’s self too seriously. Very bloody, though. ★★★★
How to be Single – Entertaining and relatable; Dakota Johnson is a fairly likable but dull lead. ★★★

1ST TIMERS
I Am Love 
– Well acted and shot, but ultimately slow and dull. ★★★

REWATCHES
The Impossible – Moving and perfectly cast. ★★★★
Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy – A stellar cast but I still find my attention wandering. ★★★
Star Wars: The Force Awakens – I’m still loving this film; entertaining, uplifting and leaves you wanting more. ★★★★½
Guardians of the Galaxy – See above. ★★★★½
X-Men – Still holds its own many years later; McKellen and Stewart make up for some fairly wooden acting in parts. ★★★½
