  • Locke 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Aug, 2014

    How the hell did Stephen Knight turn a ninety minute drive where Tom Hardy talks with a few people on the phone into one of the most engaging films of the year? I'd been interested in Locke since I heard of it, mainly because I'm a big fan of Hardy and figured from the poster it'd be a British version of Drive, so you can understand my surprise when I finally sit down to see the movie and it takes place almost entirely in Hardy's car by himself.

  • Transcendence 2014

    Watched 20 Aug, 2014

    This is easily the most unbelievably slow film I've seen in months.

Part of the charm of Thankskilling was how you…

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 May, 2014

    BIG G WENT HARD AS FUCK IN THIS MOVIE GODDAMN! Fuck writing a proper review because I'm still too amped from that mouth to mouth atomic breath scene to give a fuck about criticizing the sorta alright human element of the film. The slow paced suspense was really well done, the story was interesting enough to keep me entertained when Godzilla wasn't in the scene, the special effects were dope, Gareth Edwards clearly gets Godzilla and for that he has…
