I was going to post exactly the same review for Star Wars. Don't want to risk spoilers by saying anything specific. Just watch it. You won't be disappointed.

As a Starwars fan 9/10,
for its target audience (10-15 year old boys) 10/10.
I have started a Episode VII thread inclusive of spoilers, so everyone can let rip there without spoiling anybody else's day.

Saw Star Wars 7/10.  but im not a fan i have only seen the original trilogy once and not seen the second trilogy . It was much like the original star wars in plot but with better effects. Son loved it but he is a fan.




Common sense is not as common as you think.

Star Wars 6/10.

Too many inconsistencies and a remarkable lack of original thinking.

Watched Paranormal Activity The Ghost Dimension last night. Pretty much same as all the rest so if you like the others or even just ghost / haunting type movies then it's not too bad.

Also if you have not seen any of the others it won't hinder you from knowing what's going on.

Star Wars The Force Awakens

4/10

Gets very close of Ep.1 for the title of being the worst SW movie of all time.
Pros:
- Characters  of Rey and Han Solo work nicely
- CGI is spectacular.

Cons:
- Most of the cast is charismatic as a dead fish
- Bad guys are as evil as Justin Bieber
- Story recycles ridiculous amount of story from New Hope
- Dialog is embarrassingly bad and there's very little of it

This I agree with however I believe it could also be thought of as a tribute to the original trilogy so don't let this put you off. This is a jaw-droppingly beautiful movie that brings back the magic behind Star Wars universe. It is well shot and the new characters they have introduced will carry the story well throughout the sequels. I personally can't wait for Episode VIII.

Star Wars   9/10  very entertaining, good see old characters back, incl the millennium falcon.

Sicario     9/10  if you have ever watched The Bridge tv series, this is similar except all rolled up into 2 hours.  Once again I enjoyed it.

Creed. I can see why Stallone is going to be up for best supporting actor.

I'm a huge fan of "Rocky".

Star Wars  - TFA

10/10...the best Star Wars movie by far, in my opinion.
Great way to do a reboot - just create a sequel that repeats and includes some old characters and themes to tie it in.


Also saw a great movie about a journalist who lifted the lid on the Nicaraguan Contras support via drugs CIA scandal in the 80's/90's.

Kill The Messenger

Starring Jeremy Renner, it's a slow burner, with a great premise and to be honest, left me wondering why I hadn't heard this journo's story before.

It's a little biased (as it's based on his book), but does make for some thought provocation and some speculation into the following years after this story...

7/10





Handsome Dan Has Spoken.
Handsome Dan is also still somewhat perplexed...

Star Wars. Excellent. 3D conversion was well done. Many minor and major failures but overall worthy of the original movie with similar crappy and cheesy acting. Overall my inner child gives it 9/10 and cannot wait for the next one. But I will see this several more times first..

"The Walk" - based on the true story of Philippe Petit and his high wire walk between the the twin Towers of the World Trade Centre in the early 70's. 9 out of 10 for the feeling of anxiety alone (even though my mind is saying this is all computer generated). I heard stories of people feeling very nauseous watching the 3D version and I can certainly understand why.

Star Wars The Force Awakens at The Embassy in Wellington. Without giving spoilers (see Star Wars thread here) it's a 9/10.

Solid aerial fights, nice special effects that aren't that much in your face, great scenery.
