  • Against All Odds

    Against All Odds 1984

    ★★½ Watched 04 Dec, 2016

    Hum-ho neo-noir thriller which isn't particularly thrilling nor noirish.

    Jeff Bridges' easy-going presence just about saves it. James Woods isn't nearly menacing enough and Rachel Ward blows hot and cold, performance-wise.

  • For the Love of Spock

    For the Love of Spock 2016

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Dec, 2016

    Affectionate look at the life of Leonard Nimoy via his own son, Adam. Despite the family connection, this isn't a sugar-coated biography, offering an honest and all too human (and vulcan) glimpse of the sci-fi icon.

    Puncture 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 19 May, 2012 2

    A well-made and surprisingly engrossing law drama with a stunning central performance from Chris Evans.

    Another example of a decent film inexplicably missing out on a big screen release. Hope it finds an audience on video.

    Ti West may have disowned it but there's a lot to like about this twisted sequel. Porky's by way of John Waters and Troma.
