Sing 2016    7/10

Decent feel-good animated animal fantasy singing competition. Unlike Zootopia, there is no plausible reason why they used animals, except not liking to put animated humans to this type of bullshit script.

Kubo and The Two Strings   7.5/10

Stop motion animation that plunders Japanese culture and thus annoys anime fans. The stop motion is done so well it resembles CGI - mostly because they used 3D printers to print out facial variations. It's so soulful at one point, you will be wondering if humans have a soul. Luckily, reading IMDB "hated it" reviews will snap you out of it.

When you have eliminated the impossible, whatever remains, however improbable, must be bleedn obvious.

Started to watch the new Blair Witch movie over the Easter weekend. Trouble was, I seriously struggled to take a proper interest in it prior to the last half an hour or so of running time. I thought it started off looking pretty predictable/boring and so my attention kept straying away from it until then. However, watching that last half an hour totally changed my first impression. I now really want to watch it (properly) again from the beginning. Though I would have liked for a bit more to have been explained/shown, I did think it was pretty awesome!

Going by what I saw/absorbed, think it deserves at least a 6/10 (though I may well change my mind about that later).

Just watched Rogue One.  I am so disappointed and have a huge headache from my eyes straining to see anything in the darkness on the screen. 

there was just so much wrong with it, I don't know where to start, but this will suffice:

what the $^#% is up with having the "main switch" on some random console outside?   This was also done in one of the Marvel movies where some highly important computer nonsense was in the most ridiculous place.

I am assuming you mean the Star Wars Rogue One movie? :-)

Been so long since I last watched a Star Wars film. I've missed out on a good few by now I'm sure!

well, you probably missed out on a few....how good they were I will have to leave it to the watcher.   ;)

I did like seeing Peter Cushing again.  I'm a real Hammer Films fan.   The CGI didn't look as flawless as I had heard though.

I'm glad to hear that Peter Cushing was in it! :-) I'm a Hammer movie fan too! Think the guy was a very good actor!

Yeah, I know what you mean about how CGI can be at times. Makes me think of when I (fairly) recently rewatched The Midnight Meat Train (as hadn't fully watched it the first time I started to check it out). In some scenes, I felt the CGI actually detracted from the movie (rather than adding to it). Because of how unrealistic it looked, it stopped me from taking them seriously - though they were murder scenes!
