The BFG - 4/10
Loved the book as a kid, but the movie was slow going. Despite Spielberg being involved, it felt very much like a studio film, without much individuality to set it apart. I was fairly disappointed with it.
Jungle Book - 7/10
Great looking film with some cool performances, but like most things I enjoyed when younger, it's easy to forget how under-developed the plot actually is when you experience the story as an adult. Despite that, entertaining throughout and well worth a look.
Crimson Peak - 7/10
Despite a few iffy years, I'm a big fan of Guillermo Del Toro (Pan's Labyrinth is one of my favourites of all time) and was eager to see him go back to his gothic horror style. This is no Pan's, or even at the level of say Devil's Backbone, but it's a solid film nonetheless. The supernatural elements play more as a warning device to the central character rather than being outright horror, with the plot and relationships between the characters driving the mystery. It's more of a gothic thriller than a horror, which may disappoint some people, but it's so well made and acted that it's well worth your time.
