  • Furious 7

    Furious 7 2015

    ★★★ Watched 04 Apr, 2015

    One of those films that unfortunately suffers from having far too many money shots blown by overzealous trailers.

  • Eggshells

    Eggshells 1969

    Watched 31 Mar, 2015

    Experimental films are frequently far more rewarding for filmmakers than audiences. Exhibit A: Eggshells. Tobe Hooper's proto-mumblecore calling card sows seeds that would later bloom in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. I just wish Leatherface had turned up to despatch the tiresome, vacuous hippies. Also: Kazoos are evil.

    Last Year at Marienbad 1961

    Watched 24 Dec, 2014 2

    An ambiguous story that I may or may not have enjoyed.

    Only kidding: I unambiguously found it impenetrable and increasingly irritating, in no small part because of the intermittent screeching of the organ on the soundtrack.

  • Due Date

    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.
