Watched Bumblebee with the family yesterday. I have zero investment in the Transformers world but thought it very enjoyable. My 10yr old gave it a big thumbs up. Really liked the ’80s milieu and cultural references. Good to see a female protagonist and thought the CGI was good – the robots had solidity and weight to them. A fun family action film with a lot of heart.
Watched Midnight Special last night. It didn’t draw me in as much as I would have liked, but equally I appreciated the light touch with which the plot was handled – no excessive exposition, thank goodness.
