  • The Gold Rush 1925

    ★★★½ Watched 27 Feb, 2015

    Epic opening(!) and the gags worked for a while. The sweetness of the story gets a little bogged down however. Going to watch Chaplin's 1942 version and see what I think...

  • Non-Stop 2014

    ★★★ Rewatched 26 Feb, 2015 1

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    It goes from relentlessly mediocre to the height of awesome as soon as there are floating guns, cocaine bombs and oxygen mask martial arts.

    This movie beat The Pianist? Fuck you.

  • 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.
