    Booksmart

    ★★★★½

    Booksmart is the film to beat this year for me in pure, unadulterated enjoyment. I know it's kind of early to call, but no film this year has made me want to go and watch it again straight away, not even Endgame. And the problem is I saw I preview screening, so I HAVE to wait!!!!

    ★★★★½

    The Nice Guys is probably my favourite buddy cop film ever.

    The chemistry and back and forth between Ryan Gosling and Russle Crowe is exceptionally entertaining. Their witty comebacks and catch phrases had me out loud giggling the whole film through!

    *high pitched squeel* "Jesus!"

    Adding to that, Ryan Gosling is outstanding in this film. I'm a fanboy, but man, he kills it in this, he looks like he is having the most fun playing this character. I love him…
