Monthly Movie Reviews by Zach - January 2018

My boyfriend, Zach, loves going to the cinema and recently he's been posting his mini movie reviews onto Facebook. 
I love the fact that he loves writing them - so I'm dedicating a monthly post on my Blog to his reviews! 

The Greatest Showman
9/10
After much resistance I finally gave in to Kirsty begging me to go see this film. 
The fact she had seen it 3 times in 6 days should've been enough to tell me it's awesome! 
She was right, it's AMAZING! I don't even like musicals that much... I'd happily admit it's one of the most enjoyable films I have seen in years, if you like Musicals ITS A MUST. If you like films also go see it.. 
Feel Good 
Emotional 
Great Songs 
Good Storyline 

GO SEE IT!

Insidious - The Last Key 
6/10 (i'm been generous) 
As a fan of the insidious franchise, I expected this to deliver real scares like the first 3, unfortunately all I experienced were a few jumpy moments... 
Weak plot and a bit repetitive, the fact they left it open at the end indicates that a 5th film will be out this worries me. 
If they continue like they are it'll end up been the quality of a straight to DVD Horror!
If you like the insidious franchise go see it/have a cineworld unlimited card go aswell
But WOULD NOT Waste £10.50 going to see it this, you will walk out dissapointed and £10.50 worse off
Basic 
Unoriginal 
Weaker than the previous 3
That lil key finger thing was pretty scary though

The Commuter

7/10 
Unlimited screening of 'The Commuter' this evening with Kirsty
Uk Release date 19th Jan 
So another action thriller staring Liam Neeson SHOCK!
If you have seen 'Non Stop' the film on the plane, it's got a little bit of a feel of that.. but this is on a Train not a Plane.
Is it as good as Non Stop? Probably not, but still entertaining.
Enjoyable if you are into an easy watching thriller or just like Liam neeson action films... 
A Whodunit Plot
Tense Moments 
Fight Scenes 
Liam Neeson been an overall badass as always 
Twist

It's not gonna blow you away, pretty easy to follow, but defo worth a trip to the cinema to see it !

12 Strong
6.5/10 
So I have waited for this film to be released a couple of months now, so last night was very excited to see it! 
Was I expecting Better things?! 
Yes unfortunately I was

Firstly I love a good war film and after seeing Hacksaw Ridge Last year and it been my joint favourite film of 2017 I think I set the bar too high... 
Not a patch on hacksaw ridge... 
Slow Burner
Few Tense Fight Scenes
Extremely PRO AMERICA
Got Chris Hemsworth In Which Is A Bonus 
If you like a basic storyline with fight scenes and there's nothing else on give it a try! 
As much as it pains me to say it... You won't walk out thinking that was an amazing film... So unfortunately I won't be saying GO SEE THIS FILM...

Winchester
7/10

Me and Kirsty love a good horror, after seeing a lot of trailers and Helen Mirren on Graham Norton, We were very excited! For it's release yesterday 
A Horror Film with an Oscar winner and multiple Nominee ?! It had to be seen! 
I'm happy to be writing a good review of a horror, I feel January was a bit of a negative month of average film reviews.
For once a great storyline in a horror, kept you on the edge of your seat! 100% worth going to see if you love horror tbf even if you like a good ol ghost story.
Jumpy
Interesting 
Dark
Good Character Development
GO SEE WINCHESTER! 

Lots of love.
Kirsty (well.... Zach!)

My 2017 Highlights and 2018 Goals

HAPPY NEW YEAR!!! 
Now that's out of the way, how have you been? How was your 2017? It feels like it's been forever since I posted... It's only fitting that my first post of 2018 is about 2017... right? 

I met the Impractical Jokers
I started off the year travelling the country with Laura, seeing 3 Impractical Jokers shows. Now, I know that sounds crazy but when the tickets got released we got a bit 'booking happy' and after trying our hardest to get Meet and Greet, we finally succeeded. 
This was honestly the best way I could have started the year. I had waited months and months and it was SO worth the wait. 
I wrote a whole blog post about it (and i definitely don't randomly read it and look back at the photos.. not at all...)
