67% Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw (2019) Hobbs & Shaw is an absolutely absurd film, but that's why its so much fun. It is a blast of a blockbuster with a bunch of action, over-the-top moments and some great comedic banter from Johnson and Statham. - Battle Royale With Cheese EDIT

5/10 33% Welcome to Marwen (2018) Despite a great performance from the increasingly impressive Carell and an interesting story at its heart, Welcome to Marwen sadly fails to impress with its lacklustre script and pacing issues. - Starburst EDIT

5/10 51% Once Upon a Deadpool (2018) This time, as a PG-13 re-working, it does not feel like the Deadpool we know and love, much like in the aforementioned Origins. - Starburst EDIT
