Hey guys, hope you all had a great Easter! As some of you may know if you follow me on twitter, I recently invested in a Odeon Limitless card which in essence means I I can go to the cinema as many times as I like for just £17.99 a month which will probably mean I'll be having a few sad cinema trips by myself. Here are a couple I've seen lately at the movies (or online) - note all of these weren't amazing, but definately worth a watch. 

The Witch

Plot: A family in 1630s New England is torn apart by the forces of witchcraft, black magic and possession.

Let me start by saying this was a very odd movie and was not what I expected at all. It takes place in 1630's New England and is based on old english folk tales. It's a traditional horror movie and is pretty haunting considering the events that take place, although I must say it ended rather abruptly and it left a lot of open-ended questions. There were a few jumpy moments but it won't keep you up at night. 

10 Cloverfield Lane

Plot: After getting in a car accident, a woman is held in a shelter with two men, who claim the outside world is affected by a widespread chemical attack.

I don't really care for sci-fi movies, so I didn't think I was going to enjoy this as much as I did - probably because the "aliens" were only present for 5 minutes of the whole movie. This movie had me filled with suspense from beginning to end and you really couldn't guess what was going to happen next. That being said the end was pretty much an anti-climax and was very rushed, but still a great watch. 

Batman V Superman

Plot: Fearing that the actions of Superman are left unchecked, Batman takes on the Man of Steel, while the world wrestles with what kind of a hero it really needs.

Frankly 9/10 review sites have bashed this movie, but it's still manage to make $618M at the box office thanks to all you curious geeks (and me). Overall it wasn't as great as I expected it to be - the beginning dragged on, the action lasted all of 5 minutes with Wonder Woman having a 2 minute cameo in the whole film. I'm a big Batman fan and although Ben Affleck wasn't a terrible Bruce Wayne, I felt like it would have been a more epic battle had it been Christian Bale because of his Batman background in The Dark Knight trilogy, instead it just felt like a "new" Batman taking on the Superman (Henry Cavill) we all know. That aside, the bat-mobile was still awesome, there were some kick-ass parts and Gal Gadot is a babe. 

The Boy

Plot: An American nanny is shocked that her new English family's boy is actually a life-sized doll. After she violates a list of strict rules, disturbing events make her believe that the doll is really alive.

Sadly none of my friends were up for going to watch this with movie because they didn't fancy any nightmares about living dolls, and the ones that did were sadly a bit too far to pop to London for a movie - so I ended up watching a very bad copy of this online. The movie isn't far off from many of the horror/thriller movies we see nowadays, it's based in a scary house with some weird dolls. Although it was very creepy and it does have you jumping from time to time, I also found myself giggling at the dialogue between some of the characters. As expected, there was a twist at the end (which I shall leave out to avoid spoilers) and leaves it open for a potential sequel. 


Plot: In a city of anthropomorphic animals, a rookie bunny cop and a cynical con artist fox must work together to uncover a conspiracy.

I enjoyed this a lot more than I thought I would! Although I'm a huge disney fan, I haven't kept up with the cartoon movies that have been released lately (minus Frozen of course) but it definitely had be smiling throughout. As expected I was accompanied by a room of noisy kids but there were also several grown men sat at the cinema by themselves who seemed to be enjoying it a hella lot. The movie was funny and kept my interest throughout, there were plenty of Disney and rated R puns throughout and it's wrong to say, but that fox was hot. 

I'd love to hear your thoughts on these below if you've had a watch!
