  • Friday the 13th Part 2 1981

    ★★★ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

    Better than the first one in every conceivable way - Miner is a better filmmaker than Cunningham. Far better framing, pacing and timing; Miner knows how to set up a scare and, most importantly, he's got a sense of humour.

  • Ain't Them Bodies Saints 2013

    ★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2015

    I spent most of the time wishing that the focus of the film was Ben Foster's character, which probably explains many of the film's problems more eloquently than a full-bore review.

  • 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.

  • Jodorowsky's Dune 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Oct, 2013

    Jodo recruits a crew of spiritual warriors (including Moebius, Giger and Chris Foss) to dream a film that will reverberate through the future of science-fiction cinema for almost forty years and counting. And it never even got made. Heartening, beautiful, funny and even occasionally awe-inspiring.
