Solid pieces

St. Trinian's

2007 / 97m - UK
Comedy
3.5*/5.0*
St. Trinian's poster

Pretty crazy comedy that holds the middle between Dahl's Matilda and early Jan Kounen, if that makes any sense. I'm not familiar with the St. Trinian's franchise (quite a long-running series it seems), but this latest incarnation features a starstudded cast that clearly had a lot of fun while shooting. Cool beans.

The inoffensive

More of the same, but with a slightly less enthusiastic cast. There's still a lot of fun to be had with this one, it's still pretty crazy and out there, but overall it lacks the reckless charm of the first film. If you liked the first film you can do little wrong with part 2, but it's probably best to avoid watching them back to back.

Dubious filler

Johnny English Reborn

2011 / 101m - UK
Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime
2.0*/5.0*

Ever so slightly better than the first one, but it's still a bit hit and miss. Atkinson seems a more settled into his character this time around, but the Bond parody remains rather stale and the comeyd is very predictable. A few chuckles left and right, but overall this is a disappointing franchise.

Plain forgettable
