#30 
Backtrack
DVD

You can read the review over at Fake Geeks. In short, it’s not bad. [3]

#31 
Next to Her
Blu-Ray via Lovefilm

You can read the review over at Fake Geeks. In short, a late plot development ruins an otherwise promising film. [2.5]

#32
Victoria
Blu-Ray

You can read the review over at Fake Geeks. In short, it’s a good film that is magnificently shot. [4]

#33
When Marnie Was There
Cinema

I enjoyed WMWT, though not as much as the rest of the group I was with. I thought they did an excellent job of highlighting/dealing with anxiety disorders in a way that kids could (hopefully) understand. I wasn’t keen on the exposition flashback toward the end. Still, it’s good and enjoyable. [3.5]

#34
Room
Blu-Ray

You can read the review over at Fake Geeks. In short, one of the best films of the year. [4.5]

#35
Concussion
Blu-Ray

You can read the review over at Fake Geeks. In short, Will Smith elevates an otherwise okay film to pretty decent. Should have been better. [3]

#36
X-Men: Apocalypse
Cinema

I thought the reviews in the mainstream press were harsh. While it is not in the same league as Day of Future Past, X2, or even possibly First Class it is a decent, enjoyable entry in the franchise. [3]

#37
The Nice Guys
Cinema

A cracking film! Exactly what you expect from Shane Black. Is he the most consistent film maker around? Definitely one for debate. Either way, this is a funny film. [4]
