    Gone Girl 2014

    ½ Watched 15 Dec, 2014

    Competently made, but APPALLING levels of misogyny.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Nov, 2014

    A cinematic spectacular that's as flawed as it is brilliant. Overall though I admire it's ambition and the way it makes relativity and quantum mechanics dramatic, emotional and accessible. If only more directors credited their audiences with more intelligence...

    An embarrassment for all concerned.

    Bogart's performance in this film essentially set the template for film acting for the next 50 years.

  • Heat

    Heat 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Jul, 2014

    Probably the very pinnacle of the heist movie genre, but almost entirely derailed by Pacino's bizarre/ridiculous performance.

    fuck this misogynist bullshit

  • The Aviator

    Flawless film-making, ultimately empty though.

  • 300: Rise of an Empire

    300: Rise of an Empire 2014

    Boring, pompous, humourless, pointless bullshit.

  • Goldfinger

    Goldfinger 1964

    ★★½ Watched 11 May, 2014

    Feels flat really quickly, the the score is uncommonly brilliant throughout.

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 14 Jan, 2015

    This film means a lot to me.
