The Jungle Book, 2016 – ★★★

It would have worked better as a musical instead of having basically only King Louie burst into song.

Hamilton, 2020 – ★★★★★

This was incredible. Almost as good as seeing it live (I saw it in London), the original cast are spectacular. I will probably watch it a dozen more times!

I love screening out emails knowing they can never email me again on hey.com

I was an early adopter of GMail and managed to get a short GMail address, [email protected]

This was great until I realised how many people would sign me up to things thinking it was THEIR address 😖

The email became unusable. Now for the first time I’m checking it again because it’s forwarding to [email protected] and I can screen what comes in! 👏

The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers, 2002 – ★★★★½

Oh dear the only women are basically to lust over, there are no PoC I don’t think, and Frodo and Sam should just kiss already. Gollum steals the show.

The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring, 2001 – ★★★★

An amazing film, obviously, but it pains me that there are so few women and I don’t think any PoC in this film.

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us, Part 2 – ★★★

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us, Part 2

I’m afraid I really did not enjoy this one. With Gwen possessed (and her storyline really not moved on at all since the first box set) and Jack AWOL through most of it, it hasn’t felt like proper Torchwood.

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us, Part 1 – ★★★

Torchwood: Aliens Among Us, Part 1

I wanted to rate this higher because I do love Torchwood but I found the last 2 stories were not great, and I don’t like that Gwen is mysteriously possessed for almost the whole thing.

Doctor Who: Day of the Daleks, 1972 – ★★★

This review may contain spoilers.

I watched the Special Edition, which had some really good effects. The story was good, very Terminator and timey-wimey. Daleks were a bit of an afterthought though and it all ended rather abruptly. One of the best of the third doctor so far.

Doctor Who: Colony in Space, 1971 – ★★½

This review may contain spoilers.

The Master comes along and turns what could have been an interesting story (First time the third Doctor visits another planet, interstellar politics) into a retread of all Master stories, and then they blow up a whole alien city and no-one cares. What?!

The first two stories are great, but the last two let it down. The premise is also so close to River Song’s Diary.

Doctor Who: The Mind of Evil, 1971 – ★½ (contains spoilers)

This review may contain spoilers.

The worst Third Doctor episode so far. The monster was stupid, the Master was ineffectual and the Doctor was unkind.
