    Average on all accounts.

  • The Secret Life of Walter Mitty 2013

    ★½ Watched 26 Jan, 2014

    Swimming with sharks, Ben Stiller, really? That's your subtle symbolism for stepping outside the comfort zone? And don't even get me started on all the 'life' magazine puns, where Walter works in the 'negative' department...

    Ok, there are some beautiful shots of the Icelandic landscape, but they can't even begin to save this predictable, unbalanced & cheesy movie.

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Jul, 2013

    If a film has you grinning and humming David Bowie's Modern Love for hours after watching it, that's a good sign. Also, I cried.

  • Kon-Tiki 2012

    ★★½ Watched 22 May, 2013

    The true story itself is awesome, of course. And watching six half-naked Vikings for 2 hours is no punishment either. But the film never manages to make the story its own. All expected sea journey related hick-ups quicky follow each other (sea sickness! sharks! mutiny! man overboard! storm!): as if they're being ticked off a list. Not one of these makes an actual emotional impact on the viewer. At no point in the film did I find myself really connecting with the characters, or caring whether they would make it or not. They do, by the way. Oops, spoiler alert.
