The Conjuring
The Conjuring (2013)

..........BOO! If you find that terrifying then this film is probably for you. Personally I struggled to go along with this film after the opening 10-15secs when a girl straight faced tells the 'Demonologist' (seriously...give me strength) that they let the little girl 'Inhabit their doll'. It's just nonsense and the more you shine a light on that and treat it with po-faced seriousness the more ridiculous it all seems I'm afraid.

Beasts of the Southern Wild

I cannot get my head around the acclaim this film has received, I found it dull from beginning to end. Cute kids talks like those inspirational quotes Middle Age Mum's post on Facebook and Instagram whilst a nonsensical plot plays out. Really, really boring.

Ghostbusters (1984 Original)
3 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It's really weird re-visiting this film, I'd kind of forgotten what a big deal it was. From the plethora of merchandise to the cartoon which ran for years and years, in the 80's this was THE kids film. Except re-watching it,. it's not a kids film at all, it's basically a long SNL sketch, mainly dominated by Bill Murray. This must have all gone right over my 8 year old head. It's not quite as funny as you hope, Hudson is completely wasted (seriously what is the point in him?) but it's such good natured fun you can't help but still enjoy it. Still a catchy tune as well, I ain't afraid of no ghost!

Frank
Frank (2014)

I do not understand the critic love-in with this film. It's not funny and it's definitely not moving. Let's be honest Frank Sidebottom was never funny anyway. It's always trying to be so bloody kooky, well sorry I was bored.

Rabbit Hole
Rabbit Hole (2010)
5 days ago via Rotten Tomatoes

This has been on my 'to view' list for some time so it was a relief of some sorts that it lived up to expectations. A really strong cast (perhaps Kidman aside, never sure about her and her automaton approach) bring a real feel of truth to the film. There are genuine feeling laughs from the dark humour you have to find as a grieving parent. I really liked it, my wife found it moving but frustrating so not sure everyone will find it their cup of tea, But in 91mins it really hit some nails slap bang on the head for me.
