Enjoyable family film. 'Peter Rabbit' does nothing to set the world alight, though does all that's needed to be a film that most will have a good time watching. James Corden performs ably as the lead, with Rose Byrne supporting adeptly.
'Weird Science' features an interesting premise, but ends up being a bit of a let down. The acting isn't the best, not even from the now well-known duo of Robert Downey Jr. and Bill Paxton. It didn't bring laughs, while none of the scenes really felt connected. This film leaves little to remember.
'Daddy's Home' is a bit of a strange one, for me. Solid enough plot and a good cast, but the film didn't make me laugh all that much - it tried to shoehorn the morality aspect into it too much. The end scenes were actually the most enjoyable part, not in a negative way either - I genuinely liked the ending, just everything before that was average.
'Sample People' is somewhat interesting, though never really delivers with its plot. It manages the rather large cast pretty well, with Simon Lyndon and Joel Edgerton being the standout performers. However, as noted, the actual story doesn't hit - I didn't care for any of the characters involved.
Steven Spielberg's 'The BFG' is a definite improvement on the previous adaptation by Brian Cosgrove, as you'd expect. Mark Rylance is terrific as the Big Friendly Giant, with Ruby Barnhill performing well as Sophie. However, the film lost all momentum with Penelope Wilton & Co.'s arrival - from then until the end, it became rather boring.
