Insurgent Film Review

I'm getting a little tired of these Battle Royale copy cat style teen stories, we have Hunger Games, Insurgent, Maze Runner and Giver, all with the same basic futuristic storyline of human problems and being divided into groups in order to survive something. This just felt tired. The story didn't grab me, some stupid box they found can only be opened by a Divergent and theres no mystery at all who it is, while the film looks for out leading lady. When they do finally figure it all out and the film ends, you have to ask yourself why they didn't do what they did 200 years earlier!! Obviously no one has any curiosity or get up and go in the future. Boring and theres a third film coming zzzzzz!

Chappie Movie Review

This is the movie that the Robocop remake should have been! The story of a newly created AI that is stolen and raised by a gang who jack cars and rob banks. But as the AI is naive and child like its done with a certain funny charm. There is a touching story line, great action, comedy, violence and sadness all in one film! Thoroughly enjoyed it.
