Movies: Spectre (12A), The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 (12A), Zombieland (DVD – 15) & Beowulf (DVD – 12A)

Spectre (12A) – what’s it about? With the 00 program being closed down, Bond must uncover the truth of the cryptic message he receives from the grave…

If you know James Bond you kinda know exactly what to expect with this one, car chases, gun fights, explosions and Bond getting it on with at least one pretty woman…so you know the drill. It was good, don’t get me wrong, but all so predictable and been done before.

The Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 2 (12A) – what’s it about? A continuation on from Mockingjay Part 1 this one wraps up the Hunger games series :’(

It’s been a long road which has sadly come to an end with this finale. After being a little disappointed by P1 this one definitely makes up for it, P1 just being a lead into this movie, though I really recommend watching them one after the other as it gives it a massive boost to the atmosphere and story. It is once again, filled with a good mix of the action and story, but be prepared to take your tissues as you may need them!

Zombieland (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? A young college kid travelling across Zombie infested America who teams up with a gun-totting Twinkie hunting Texan!

Zombies, comedy, zombies, killing, more zombies, yep yet another zombie comedy but this is pretty damn amusing in parts, it definitely has its moments. If you like the whole zombie apocalypse deal and 
you like it with a bit of a random streak then this one will be right up your alley.

Beowulf (DVD – 12A) – what’s it about? The story of Beowulf, a hero who sets out to defeat Grendel, a monster, who’s tormenting a village.

This is one of those movies that’s great but a little weird at the same time, I think its probably the animation of it that makes it a little weird, don’t get me wrong though I do like animated stuff but I think if this was live action it would give it a little more depth. It’s a good story though that unfolds throughout, so it’s definitely worth a look especially if you like Vikings and mythology and stuff!
