Review - Minions

Minions is the newest film in the Despicable Me series, it is Directed by Pierre Coffin & Kyle Balda and stars Sandra Bullock, Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Allison Janney & Geoffrey Rush.
I'm glad that they decided to make a Minions movie, the Despicable Me movies are good, but everyone watches them for the Minions and they are always a stand-out, but the problem with making a movie about side characters is will they be able to hold the screen for a full movie? And they do!

This film is a lot of fun and i was laughing the whole way through.

Review - Mr Holmes

Mr Holmes is a British-American crime drama/mystery film directed by Bill Condon and is adapted from the book 'A Slight Trick of the Mind' by Mitch Cullen, it stars Ian McKellan as Sherlock Holmes and Laura Linney as Mrs. Munro.

Mr Holmes is about an elderly Sherlock Holmes living in Sussex with his housekeeper Mrs. Munro and her son Rodger in the late 1940's, The interesting thing about the plot is that Sherlock is losing his memory, the smartest man in the world is forgetting things, its a thing I've never seen any Sherlock book or film show before and thought they handled it very well. The film jumps around with time, with 3 different sections; the present, in which Sherlock has just returned from Japan and is trying to remember an old case of his, a few weeks ago, when he was in Japan and in the 30 years in the past, showing Sherlock's old case as he is remembering it, they juggle the 3 story-lines in a way that you always know when and where you are.

SPOILERS Review & Discussion - Game Of Thrones: Season 5

Game Of Thrones is my favourite TV show, i love how it mixes fantasy with politics, it has great dialogue, well written characters and shocking twists that surprise the viewers every-time, even though we should be used to them by now. In my opinion the first 4 seasons are some of the best TV ever, thanks to the books they are adapted from by Author, George RR Martin. It was revealed that in season 5, the showrunners; David Benioff & D.B. Weiss.would be deviating from George's books because they were catching up to quickly and unfortunately without the books direction, the quality in the story suffers.
