Movie: The Hateful Eight

Our rating: 3/5

Short review: The Hateful Eight is a decent film with a lot of killing and swearing, but in regards to Tarantino’s repertoire it ranks pretty low on the ‘blow-your-mind’ scale. An average film, but a good average film.

Movie:  The 5th Wave

Our rating: 1/5

Short review: I’m not sure what screenplay writers Susannah Grant, Akiva Goldsman and Jeff Pinkner were thinking when they first adapted Rick Yancey’s best-selling novel for the big screen, but what they’ve given us is a watered down and almost censored version of a book, that by all accounts, is one of the best written sci-fi novels for young adults.

Movie: The 33

Our rating: 2/5

Short review: It’s really hard not to be moved by this remarkable true story of the 2010 Chilean miners rescue.
