The Stanford Prison Experiment (2015)

Based on the study of the same name the film gives us a real look into the Stanford Prison Experiment in the 70s were a bunch of students were, by a coin flip, separated into the roles of guards and prisoners and left to simulate a prison environment for two weeks.

Starring Ezra Miller and Billy Crudup and released back in 2015 it is a actual look not only at the experiment itself but the mindset behind the people running it.

The BFG (2016)

Roald Dhal’s classic film hits the big screen with a brand new adaptation from the genius that is Steven Speilberg. The BFG was one of the very first books I learnt to read and one of the very first books I fell in love with.

Growing up we didn’t just have the book though we had a wonderful cartoon adaption which brought the Big Friendly Giant and Sophie to life.

Now we have a new BFG and its bound to be magical right?

Beauty and the Beast (2017)

So the next installment in Disney’s live action remakes of their cartoons see Emma Watson, Luke Evans and Dan Stevens bring the Tale as Old as Time to life in all its beauty.

I Am Michael (2015)

The story of Michael Glatze, a former gay rights activist that turned his back on homosexuality to become a Christian Pastor.

James Franco stars as Glatze in one of the most interesting roles I’ve ever seen him in, also staring Zachary Quinto as Glatze’s partner. I found the film randomly whilst looking for something to watch on Netflix and was surprised by how touching I found it.

Netflix’s Death Note

As you can guess seeing we’re like a episode or two away from finishing the flashback reviews for the anime series I have fallen in love with Death Note since beginning it way back. It is a intelligent series about a young man who finds a way to punish the bad guys in the world who get off from their crimes but then shows how playing god completely changes someone. Its a intelligent anime series that then focuses on a mental chess game between two highly intelligent characters.

Netflix has a history of making wonderful things so I was really excited. Real, REAL excited.

Kong : Skull Island (2017)

Rating : 1*ย 

I am a huge fan of King Kong and a even bigger fan of King Kong’s 2005 re-make starring Adrien Brody, Jack Black and Naomi Watts. To hear a new movie with Tom Hiddleston, John Goodman and John C. Reilly was coming out I was extremely excited to see a new chapter in the story of Kong.

Did the film live up to its predecessors?
