Movies: Eye in the Sky (15), Bastille Day (15), Captain America: Civil War (12A), Demolition (15), Three Kings (DVD – 15), Dominion (DVD – 15) & Payback (DVD – 18)

Eye in the Sky (15) – what’s it about? The military manage to track down several members of a terrorist group and are faced with a political and morality issue.

I wanted to see this and I have to say I could not be more surprised how brilliant this was, the plot kept me locked in suspense, it is most definitely the most well throughout out movie I have seen in a long while. If you like more than just the action, a look at what happens behind the scenes of actions by military personnel then this is definitely worth a look!

Bastille Day (15) – what’s it about? A member of the CIA tries to find the culprits behind a terrorist attack and riots in Paris.

When I started watching this I was thinking hmmm maybe this is a little close to the bone atm, it was a good movie, about a team up of a thief and a CIA agent. It had quite a lot of action and a few laugh moments in it too, it is worth a look if you like cops and robbers stuff.

Captain America: Civil War (12A) – what’s it about? The team are faced with the decision to sign and be under UN control or not, there’s a bit of a split decision and the team battle it out.

Well well well…I’ve seen this twice within 3 days so as you can probably tell its pretty damn good. You know the drill with all the superhero movies, if you love all the Marvel and Avengers stuff then this will be right up your street, though I think it’s a little more thought provoking and political than the others so it may be a little too talky and less humour for some. Definitely worth checking out if you have a spare 2 hrs and 40 mins.

Demolition (15) – what’s it about? After his wife dies Davis goes a little off the rails when trying to cope with his loss.

I wasn’t sure about this when I went to see it, thinking it’s going to be a bad movie and really depressing, that said though I was actually surprised and I come out thinking yeah that was pretty good, not the best film ever but the acting and whole thing was excellent. Even though it was a pretty depressing subject it was actually pretty funny in parts, there were definitely some moments where I had a giggle some because they were just funny and some because it was like omg I can’t believe he/they did that. This is worth a watch if you like drama movies.

Three Kings (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? Three soldiers go on the quest to find Saddam’s gold.

This was pretty interesting; again another movie this week about the military. This one had some good plot again; action and some things that make you wonder and question people’s actions, even though it’s just a movie it does make you wonder. Again another good movie if you like crime and war stuff.

Dominion (DVD – 15) – what’s it about? In five days time aliens will invade earth, an alien and human team up to save a woman and make the world believe.

Ok this was one of those movies I didn’t really know anything about and I think I picked it up for a couple of quid but it was sci-fi and therefore could be interesting or could be really bad. I have to admit that this one falls into the not very good bracket; it was ok, as in to pass the time. The idea of it was ok but don’t expect to see any invasion or what not, it’s just a lot of talking and pre-invasion stuff which in itself isn’t too thrilling or thought provoking. If you don’t have anything better to do and like some shoddy sci-fi then maybe watch it but really wouldn’t expect much.

Payback (DVD – 18) – what’s it about? Porter goes on revenge after he is betrayed and shot by his wife and friend…

I saw this many years ago and found it in the shop for about 50p so I couldn’t resist picking it up to have a re-watch of it. It’s a little dark and gritty, with crime and violence thrown in for good measure. If you like a bit of a rough movie, with some guns and killing then this one will probably be right up your street! It’s a little old now but it is still worth taking a look at if you haven’t seen it before – especially if you like crime stuff.
