    The Devil Wears Prada

    ★★★½

    Although it is one of the most expensively costumed films in history, I don't think any of the clothes particularly stand out, but the performances definitely do. As one of Meryl Streep's best performances, I also love Stanley Tucci in this, and Emily Blunt has some great lines of comedy.

    It has a sharp script and Streep oozes sass. Supposedly inspired by Vogue editor Anna Wintour, the comedy is a great insight into the bitchy, selfish, over-worked industry of the…

    Murder Mystery

    ★★

    Taking influence from the obvious, Murder Mystery has obviously intrigued plenty of people to give it a watch. Maybe it's because of the murder mystery premise which is often done really well, or maybe it's because Aniston tends to balance Sandler out somewhat.

    First of all, I like Kubrick's films, love some of them in fact, but I can't even pretend to like this one. Of course I understand the influence this film had on the industry in its time,…

    Sucker Punch

    ★★★★

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film and that there was no in between, and it's easy to see why that is. Personally, I don't agree with any of the negative reviews, so it turns out that I'm one of the few that love it.

    Firstly, I don't understand why many of the reviews I have read go on about the huge emphasis on rape for. This is what put me off at…
