Captain America: Civil War
Arguably the best film in Marvel’s canon so far. This superhero bust-up is fun, energetic and transformed by really good storytelling. When Captain America and Iron Man lock horns, we see reason on both sides; there’s a necessity for them to fight despite the mutual respect. Then, like Joss Whedon’s The Avengers, it juggles a whole bunch of characters really nicely – Spidey popping up was a lot of fun, and the whole airport showdown is likely to be one of the best scenes you’ll see this year. In fact, the whole film’s probably going to be up there.
Bad Neighbours 2
Considering it follows exactly the same formula as the first film, it’s not half bad (it probably helps that I enjoyed the first one). Basically, every time the titular sorority (titular in the American version, at least) is on-screen, which usually involves little more than Chloe Grace Moretz and a few other unknown actresses trying to riff on other successful formulas (one of them is trying to be Rebel Wilson in Pitch Perfect, for example), it’s incredibly unfunny – as in, unfunny to the point of “how did this make it into the film?” boredom. Fortunately when Rogen, Byrne and Efron’s side appear, it’s laugh-a-minute, gross-out silliness.
