Neon Museum

We were out and about in our rental car today doing some shopping, so decided to also pop into the Neon Museum for a bit of Vegas culture. Great hour guided tour round the Vegas sign boneyard.

Ghost in the Shell IMAX Movie Review

Simple story thats been done before from a very old 80's anime. Back in the day this probably was good, now its old hat. Great effects and futuristic though.

Beauty and the Beast D-BOX Film Review

Live action version of the animated classic, with more songs and a slightly wooden Belle.

Kong: Skull Island 3D D-BOX Movie Review

Lets attack a giant monkey for no apparent reason other than we're Americans with guns? Slightly pointless Kong movie with no Kong classic action.

Passengers Movie Review

Day two of 2017 and we're off with our first movie review! A big budget, big star movie of a story of a ship of 5000 people on a 120 year journey to Colony II planet, except James (Pratt) wakes up 90 years too early. Stuck with a robot bartender as his only company he also wakes up Arora (Lawrence). So the first part of the film is a bit of a love story, but then disaster hits, but it only feels like a minor disaster as its taken so long to get here. And this is where the film falters, it has great sets, great actors and a fairly good story it just seems too long and drawn out. Shame really, bit of editing or a bit more going on the ship and it might have been saved.
