  • Inside Llewyn Davis 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 21 Dec, 2014

    This is one of those films that, when you're having a bad time, you release that Llewyn Davis is having it harder. A wonderful cast that encapsulate the heart of the story through their actions in and interactions with one another. Oscar Isaac sure knows how to play that sombre melancholic star with great conviction. The music and the mood ever so eloquently transport you back to that era. An era of lost cats, broken dreams and infidelities. Watching this…

  • Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 2014

    ★★½ Watched 19 Dec, 2014

    Not as bad as I was expecting, but still not great. The action scenes are what kept my attention for the brief runtime, even if some of the CG was a little ropey, unfortunately, and like Transformers, it's the human characters that have a negative impact on the story. Both Fox and Arnett clearly struggle with each other, even William Fichter couldn't create and engrossing bad guy. All in all, TMNT is a fun, popcorn flick that will appeal to fanboys of the 80's animated show and newcomers alike.

    "D.J.A.N.G.O. The 'D' is silent"

    I Wasn't very sure about this on first viewing at the cinema. Maybe I was tired or uncomfortable. Maybe the inconsiderate individual sat next to me on his mobile telephone was distracting me from taking in the delights of Quentin Tarantino's seventh studio film in all it's bloody splattering glory? Maybe all of the above.

    Tarantino's Django, is a concoction of spaghetti western, slavery and humour, fully laced with that QT dialogue we've all become…
