Pride and Prejudice and Zombies: Started off as a gallant attempt at recreating the novel for the silver screen, but falls flat in its departure from the book and its attempt to make proceedings overly dramatic. The special effects are also alittle lacking, a sore reminder of how this film could have benefited from a bigger budget. As a lover of the literature it was based upon, I dearly wanted to love this film, but couldn't. 3/10.

The Martian: It's 2016's version of Apollo 13, and it compares favourably enough, even borrowing a few elements from it. It's got "inspiring Hollywood survival tale" written all over it, but despite this the film managed to lower my defences and suck me into its thrilling finale. Good stuff. 8/10.

Zoolander 1 and 2: Watched both for the first time recently, and enjoyed their brand of silly-humour. I think I liked the second one better, as there are more laughs, absurdity and celebrity cameos. I give them 7 and 8 out of 10 respectively.
