I watched Insidious: The Last Key with my boyfriend a couple weeks ago and I didn't really like it or hate it. It did have a couple scenes where I jumped out of my seat tho, but other than that, not too memorable. But I did like Jumanji a lot tho! :)

Darkest Hour. Surprisingly I did not like it. I am a huge history movie buff and an admirer of Winston Churchill. However, this was too fictionalized. Too much an effort to say that Churchill was inspired by the "common man." Another episode in the "no such thing as great men" narrative that is so trendy in a populist age.
Plus, while I like Gary Oldman, I thought his portrayal was weak. He did not have the cadences of Churchill's speech and at times he almost seems doddering. (Keep in mind that Churchill lived till January of 1965. The events in the movie take place in 1940, yet Churchill seems on the verge of an old folks home.)
A major disappointment. I'll still take Richard Burton in The Gathering Storm any day.
