Lord of the rings Marathon on DSTV, forgot how good the movies are. When you see Nick Cannon in a movie you know its gona be a waste of 90 minutes

I recently did the marathon on the 4k version of the 3 movies. Enjoyed it as much as I did each year in the Cines. Next up for me another marathon on the 4k version of the Hobbit movies....

The Misfits (2021) 5/10

Mediocre heist film. Positives are Pierce Brosnan (I'm always a fan), UAE setting with the dune bashing & the selection of cars (damn, 918 Spyder anyone??). Negative are story, Nick Cannon, acting, directing, poor writing, CGI overload, cheesiness, dialogue & Nick Cannon.
Ok-ish for some mindless action, that is about it.

The wish dragon - 7.5/10

Really solid animated movie. Enjoyed how it was put together. Predictable but good.

Yeah it's not bad. The new Pixar film Luca is also coming out on Saturday, hopefully that will be nice for the kids.

Definitely. We watched as a family and it was very good. My kids are age 10 and 12 but a good all age movie.
Excellent, I think this is tonight's movie then. We watched The Mitchells vs. The Machines which was great.

Stowaway (2021) - 7/10. Thought provoking with stunning visuals but the gaping plot holes are a problem.

The Birthday Cake (2021) 6/10

Messy crime thriller. Incoherent & flat story. A waste of a good cast, Val Kilmer & Ewan McGregor in particular.

Luca 7/10. Not the best Pixar film, but worth watching with the kids. It drifts about for a while before finding its purpose.

Fatherhood (2021) 6.5/10

Feel good comedy drama. Enjoyable story & surprisingly good performance from Kevin Hart.

Siberia (2019) 5/10

Psychological thriller, a mess of a movie. Wired & ''arty''
