    Escape Plan 2: Hades (2018) 4.5/10

    Much much crappier than the decent first installment. Extremely dumb played out story, low amount of action scenes. Stallone only doing 15mins of screentime says enough.

    Truth Or Dare (2018) 6/10

    Average supernatural horror. Bit of a dumb premise but enough to pull it through.

    Disobedience (2017) 7/10

    Powerful relationship drama with good performances by Rachel Weisz & Rachel McAdams.

    There's a video on YouTube where someone reconstructs the ratatouille from the film. I keep meaning to give that a go

    Best movie I've seen all year I reckon.

    7 Days in Entebbe (2018) 8.5/10

    The movie managed to portray both sides as human with the raid being almost supplementary to the story. Great story at a good pace with a conclusion that drives home the profound fact that no matter where we are from, what side we are on, at the end of the day, we are all the same.

    The Devil's Doorway - very good.

    Like the Blair Witch Project but set in a convent of sorts.

    I've been strengthening my kung fu this week by visiting a couple of old favourites starring Donnie Yen. After Shaolin (2011) 8/10 (mentioned above, starring Andy Lau) I watched Ip Man (2008) 8/10 and Ip Man 2 (2010) 7/10. Since I'm on the Ip Man trip I've also got The Grandmaster (2013) lined up for this weekend. I saw it when it came out but I never got around to rating it. It was nominated for two Oscars: Cinematography and Costume Design.

    Then I'll return to Donnie Yen with two I haven't seen yet: Painted Skin (2008) in which he fights a vampire and 14 Blades (2010) in which he's James Bond for the Ming Dynasty.

    I wouldn't expect anything else with a movie such as this. The outline of the story is well known and based on fact, but the drama comes from the characters and relationships that are Hollywood'fied.

    Braveheart won an Oscar after all, embellishment is what film makers do. Still made it a great movie of course, but historically it was miles away from the nearest facts.

    Yes. At the moment I'm more interested in the traditional type of kung fu movies, though, rather than the modern action type movies.

    There's a newish movie with Donnie Yen and Andy Lau called Chasing the Dragon (2017) that got some pretty good reviews that I still want to see.

    Hereditary 2018

    Oh my, knew very little going into this one and it was fantastic. It's a real mindfsck horror, something like a mix of insidious 1 and the witch. People in the cinema were freaking out too, great stuff. If you like horrors then give it a go, it's a slow burner but the scares are worth it. 8/10

    Don't miss Ip Man 3.
