    El Camino: A Breaking Bad Movie

    ★★★½

    I’m amazed how clean Jesse Pinkman’s teeth are after all of this.


    I mean, what is there you can really say about this one? It’s one of the most anticipated and speculated post-TV show stories of all time. What exactly happened to Jesse after Breaking Bad? Well, this film serves to answer that question - and whether or not it’s disappointing will mostly be down to personal preference; because as a technical specimen, it’s as good as anyone could hope…

    ★★★

    No, I wasn't ready.

    Yesterday

    ★½

    'So hey. I've got a few Beatles gags. Shall we make a whole movie about them?'


    Yesterday is a film made by the director of Trainspotting along with the writer of Love Actually. And it's just as messy as it sounds. This isn't me being horrible to Danny Boyle or Richard Curtis either - I love Boyle's movies and Curtis has written some incredible comedy. But mix these two minds together to try and make a romcom and it falls…
