T2: Trainspotting

I was expecting an element of nostalgia, but it actually smothers the film and the modern plot line feels like an afterthought. 

It's okay and has its moments but was never going to touch the deservedly iconic original.

The music is pretty good as well....

Get Out

Quite good.  Quite original and astute.  Still mulling over its themes the day after and there's an interesting alternate ending in the extras.  Recommended.

two more episodes this week. This may be the best war documentary series I've seen...

The mad helicopter crewman at the beginning of one of this week's episodes was instant proof of PTSD...

Ex Machina

Very good, especially technically.  Unsurprisingly won the 2015 Oscar for Best Visual Effects - they are "seamless" rather than "spectacular".
