  • V/H/S/2 2013

    Watched 20 Apr, 2014

    Not as objectionable as the first one, somewhat more imaginative, and yet almost as dull.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2014

    The first film was all tight, stripped-down bonecracking beauty. This, however, is somewhat baggy and occasionally tips over into queasy, disposable sadism. It lags and suffers whenever Iko Uwais is off-screen (you could lose an hour of sub-plots easy), but when he's He's the Fred Astaire of face-kicking.

  • Due Date 2010

    ½ Watched 16 Jul, 2012

    The sheer fucking unwarranted hubris of Todd Phillips that he thought he could better (let alone equal) PLANES, TRAINS & AUTOMOBILES. I laughed a total of two times - both times because Downey Jr. pulled a facial expression that managed to rise above the pitiful slop of the script.

  • Her 2013

    ★★★ Watched 07 Mar, 2014

    Not as winsome and twee as I'd feared. But for all the things I liked about HER, I just couldn't get past how fundamentally skeevy and creepy the central premise is. Also: Excessive use of sunrises.
