Nothing really new here is added to the horror genre, crew finds tiny life form brings it onto their spacestation and thus ensues an alien trying to kill everyone and take over the world... pretty standard and unoriginal fare. The cast do a good enough job with what they have been given but ultimately it fails... not one to rewatch again...

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Was there a point to this film? Lasted 40 minutes and whereas the last one had a decent story to it, this feels like its just random scene after random scene.... boring!

Now this is how you do a horror film. Comparisons are inevitable with the 1990 TV series with Tim Curry as the evil Pennywise, but what Bill Skarsgard does is make him more maniacal and threatening, I just wanted more scenes with him but when he is on screen he is terrifying! The young actors in their roles all exceed expectations but there isn't room for character development for all of them, there are a few that get sidelined which is a shame. Another slight criticism I have is that in the series Pennywise played with the children a lot more and there wasn't much of that going on, although its hard to cram all that in into a 2 hour film. I wouldn't say that its a scary film, yes there are a few jump scares but its more unsettling and creepy plus it doesn't help I viewed most of the Pennywise clips on YouTube, so stay away from that and be surprised. Overall its a well made horror film and the sequel should definitely up the scare factor.

Spider-Man: Homecoming

This is why every non Marvel franchise should return to Marvel! They clearly know how to stay true to the source material and adapt it properly. This is the Spider-Man film that fans have been waiting for. Picking up after Civil War we find Peter longing to get back into the swing (pun intended) of things and help the Avengers on another mission, but under the wing of Tony Stark, he needs to learn a few things before that happens again. What makes this film so dam good is the character development of Peter Parker, his journey is full of ups and downs and Tom Hollands performance is truly wonderful. But scenes get stolen from him by the legendary Michael Keaton who brings a complex villain in the Vulture, you completely understand his reasons for why he's doing what he does and brings probably the best bad guy since Loki. The action scenes are great if a little short but enjoyable and theres a few surprises along the way. Make sure you stay for the 2 end credit scenes, the final one is Marvel at its finest. See it and buy it, its worth the money!
