  • All Is Lost 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 10 Oct, 2014

    There are coincidental glimpses of LIFE OF PI, CAPTAIN PHILLIPS and GRAVITY here, and ALL IS LOST is better than all three of them put together.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Monumentally Stupid. Hugely Entertaining. Far too long. Never a dull moment. All at the same time.

    GONE GIRL is a potboiler. Lurid. Over-egged. Melodramatic. Compulsive. It's riddled with holes that only gape wider when you prod at them a little bit. It may well be the ne plus ultra of potboilers, but it's a potboiler all the same.

    Fincher trains his eye with scalpel-sharp precision here when it comes to staging and a sense of place. Everything looks suitably chilly…

  • 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.
