Inbetweeners 2 10/10
Inbetweeners 2 was absolutely everything I hoped it would be. I loved the series, I loved the first film, and I loved the second one just as much. I’m always relieved when something I love manages to keep going without spoiling itself. This film had me in tears laughing, it was so so funny. It also made me nearly vom twice. Make of that what you will. If you haven’t seen it yet and you enjoyed The Inbetweeners, what are you doing? Go see it now.
Hercules was better than I actually expected it to be. I’ll admit that I wasn’t expecting much, and it certainly wasn’t the film of the year, but it did pleasantly surprise me. It was kinda heartwarming, and I love mythology and faux history, so I did quite enjoy it. The plot surprised me as well, which was unexpected. Worth a watch if you’re into The Rock and like the genre.
Let’s Be Cops 8/10
I really enjoyed this film, it was completely and utterly far fetched, but that was obviously the point. The events in this film would never in a million years pan out this way, and it kinda worries me knowing there are people in the world who don’t know the difference between films and real life and might watch this, but it was funny and the main characters’ bromance was stereotypically nice. And Nina Dobrev is an absolute babe in it.
Lucy was good, although not quite as good as I had expected from the trailers. I guess I went in with my expectations too high on this one, but I did still really enjoy it and really liked the concept behind the plot. The ending definitely had me and my friends going “what, it’s over? I don’t know what to think” but I was still thinking about the film a few days after watching it, and that’s always a good thing. Morgan Freeman was absolutely essential to making this a good film I think, I can’t imagine anyone else playing his character. I probably wouldn’t have enjoyed it as much if him and Scarlett Johansson were replaced with anybody else. Worth a watch!
Sex Tape 7/10
Sex Tape was pretty funny. I loved seeing Cameron Diaz and Jason Segal working together. It’s interesting timing that the plot of the film is about explicit content being unknowingly uploaded to the Cloud, considering it coincided with The Fappening (or JLaw-gate) and that whole scandal. Obviously unintentional, as the film will have been made well in advance of that happening. I also think it will be pretty interesting when people try to pirate this film… It’s definitely a funny film, and worth a watch, especially if you like the cast.
