Terrible !!

Reviewer: M & BDate: 2018-03-24

We were very disappointed in the movie !! Felt actually embarrassed to be still sitting there watching it. Pathetic !!

Loved it!

Reviewer: Not BadDate: 2018-03-17

I thought it was fantastic, weird and beautiful. Not your normal kind of film, but very very lovely. Nice ending, lots of laughs, would recommend to any film enthusiast with an imagination!

PC rubbish

Reviewer: Godfather Part 2Date: 2018-03-13

I couldn't believe the number of anti-male comments there were in this film. I found it offensive as a man. It wasn't a patch on 3 Billboards - that film was robbed of the Oscar by this tick box checking piece of rubbish.

I was very disappointed with this film,the mixture of romance and science fiction did not go down well with me. Quite how it got so many nominations for awards is baffling.
