American Sniper....was avoiding it Eastwood being a yahoo n'all but worth a watch when I found out it was loosely based on a true story. This revelation shouldn't spoil it for you but after killing hundreds and surviving four tours of Tie Rack he was killed at home by one of his own, great performance by Sienna Miller though.

The Ninth Gate. 2000. johnny depp. Had potential. Then fizzled away to an ending that made little or no sense.
(Didnt rate an R rating.)

Finally got around to watching Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens

I'd say I am - or at least used to be - a rather big Star Wars fan.
Loved the first three. Lukewarm about the three after that - and had so-so hopes for this one.

Long story short: It was very 'meh' for me.
I felt as if it tried way to hard to be a homage to the first movie and often there were scenes - and storylines - that made me wonder if it was a re-boot.
The story was pretty thin and thinking back about it it could all been covered in a 10 min shortfilm.
Acting was also spotty - especially cringe worthy were the dialogues between the x-wing pilots during battle scenes.

I'd give it a 4/10 in part because I think it was, to me, the nail in the coffin on this IP.

Watched Deadpool.
Overall I thought it was pretty entertaining.
Sure, they were a bit too proud of themselves about how clever they were about breaking down the fourth wall - to the point that it got a bit annoying.

All in all I'd give it a 7.5/10.

Deadpool does that in the comics. It's why he has such a loyal following. That and he just doesn't give a monkeys! One of the best superhero films I've seen as it remains true to the character. Although the gratuitous violence should have been toned up to really make it true...

We've just finished watching Spectre, considering the number of mixed reviews I wasn't expecting much, but actually I quite enjoyed it. It was not as good as Skyfall though, and I still hate the theme song.
 
American Sniper : good film well directed all but one scene (sandstorm but couldn't see anything)
Based on a true story of 160+ sniper killings by one man then killed at home in the US by another ex soldier but never said how or why bit of a disappointment but overall 7/10
