  • Insidious

    Insidious 2010

    ★★★ Watched 26 Mar, 2015

    Enjoyable little haunt fest, but falters quite a bit in the second half. Feels like a warm-up for James Wan to direct The Conjuring, which is a much more effective film in terms of consistency and affect. It remains scary throughout whilst Insidious just gets campier and relies on jump scares in the latter half.

  • The Help

    The Help 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Mar, 2015

    Heartwarming and endearing with a fine cast of women giving their all. I understand the Oscar love this thing got now.

    Only Chastain movie I've seen in which she's actually good. Really good.

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.

  • The Adventures of Tintin

    The Adventures of Tintin 2011

    ★★ Added 16

    Incredibly boring with unflattering characters and attempts at comedy that had me eye rolling ever bit as much as I was checking my watch. No stakes, no story, no intrigue. Just a series of set pieces that, for the most part, linger on nothing of interest.

    The character of Tin Tin himself is as bland as he appears. Wish I would've skipped this one.
