The Lego Movie 2: Film Review

I was a huge fan of 2014’s The Lego Movie – it was hilarious and so so clever – but that years ago now and we’ve had The Lego Batman Movie since then and I didn’t love that one as much (and I didn’t even watch the Ninjago one). So I had no idea what to expect from the second outing – full title The Lego Movie 2: The Second Part – so I’m pleased to report that it is just as funny and smart as the first.

Hotel Artemis: Film Review

Hotel Artemis came out quite a while ago in America and it received mixed reviews, so I foolishly went in not expecting much from it and came away pleasantly surprised – it is intriguing and very entertaining.

Pacific Rim Uprising: Film Review

I didn’t care the slightest about Pacific Rim when it came out in 2013 – I didn’t even go to watch it in the cinema because giant monsters versus giant robots aren’t appealing to me whatsoever. I did eventually watch it on TV but I didn’t give it my full attention so I made sure to do that with its sequel Pacific Rim Uprising, which is just okay.

Jason Bateman slates Horrible Bosses 2

One of the my favourite things is when actor owns up to being in a crap film. Obviously during the press tour, they cannot openly admit they hate it but most continue to put a positive spin/angle on all their projects for years, regardless of how well they were received by critics or their box office performance. Jason Bateman on the other hand has rightly admitted a Horrible Bosses sequel was a bad idea, and this makes me very happy.

Horrible Bosses 2: Film Review

This is bigger, bolder and ruder than the original – but that doesn’t make it better. While it was enjoyable and pretty funny, it was too much and totally over the top. Producers clearly went for quantity over quality when it came to the jokes.

Horrible Bosses 2: World Premiere

Tonight, the stars of Horrible Bosses 2 headed to London for the world premiere. The three guys (Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day) are back, but this time they are trying to be their own bosses but their investments are scuppered when the buyer (Christoph) bails on his order. So, naturally, they decide to kidnap his son (Chris Pine) to get their money back.

The three main dudes came to the premiere and they were lovely – so well-mannered, articulate and funny. Bateman seems pretty sensible, Sudeikis a total joker and charmer and Charlie is just adorable – so not THAT different from their characters in the movie.

Films for November

Interstellar

I have been waiting for the release of this epic sci-fi movie for a long time and I am so ready to see this now. The plot is a closely guarded secret but we know that Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway embark on a space mission to save the human race from destructing Earth. I love everything Christopher Nolan does, I think he is a total genius, so I have very high hopes for this. Michael Caine and Jessica Chastain also star. Released: 7th November
