I watched Independence Day: Resurgence on a plane recently and while it’s not quite as much fun as the first instalment, it’s not a total waste of 114 minutes. It kept me entertained, unlike The Greatest Showman – 15 minutes of that was enough for me.
This is perhaps my favourite sci-fi movie of the last few years. It’s become a “go to’ movie when I want to watch something that doesn’t treat me like a fool. And, as well as being smart, it’s very entertaining.

Battle of the Sexes plots the story of an infamous moment in sports history as Billie Jean King looks horns with misogynistic former player Bobby Riggs. It’s a great movie that covers a chapter in sport that has had massive, long-term repercussions.
