That Cohen Bros film looks dogshit. Strange, as I like a lot of the actors in it and a lot of their films, but not touching that with a barge pole

Deadpool was decent enough. Basically exactly as expected with some cool extras.

Eddie the Eagle - This was good I thought, funny, well made, feel good british movie.
London has Fallen - Better than I expected but still pretty shit, some of the cgi special effects are third rate. Just a movie about Gerard Butler walking through bullets.

Disorder (French)- Interesting take on France's current mood towards people under the catchall phrase 'Arabs' told from the view of a returned home soldier with ptsd. The auditory hallucinations make it a very interesting viewing experience. In the last shot of the film the hallucinations cross over into the visual which left me blinking and rubbing my eyes as if I was the one tripping.

There is one big plot hole revealed towards the end regarding the job of the father and other people's lack of preparation. The writer kind of let the whole crew down because of this.

How come Zootopia is called Zootropolis over here? Looks class can't wait to take the kids to see it.

Zootopia is great…kids loved it.

Thought Anomalisa was excellent. Can see it being a love/hate thing though.

Grimsby/The Brothers Grimsby: There's a few funny moments, one in particular involving a lady in a green dress which is massive LOL's and then followed by one with some elephants which is slightly funny too but ends up being a step too far, and slightly desperate, which a lot of the jokes in the movie are.

I'd give it a 5-6/10. As usual with comedies, the story just gets in the way sometimes. Also, some of the accents and child actors are terrible and some of it seems really false and unnatural.

I imagine Grimsby town council, or in fact anyone from Grimsby isn't too pleased with the movie either, especially considering it was filmed in Essex.

"Why is Zootopia called: "Zootropolis" in some countries?

This was a creative decision made by Disney stating: "to merely allow the film to have a unique title that works for UK audiences." Though no 100% clear answer to why the name was changed to this alternate title. But despite not having any connection to any similar movies or TV shows there are some speculations that it was to avoid confusion to an upcoming certain zoo in Denmark called "Zootopia" as well where its owners have had their trademark for the title since February 2010."
