  • Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon

    Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    Interesting if relentlessly one-sided documentary on the career of band manager, movie producer, celebrity chef innovator and (according to the doc) top bloke Shep Gordon.

    Fury 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    The now-familiar war is hell, boy gets another airing, this time in the form of tank battles at the tail end of the war. Nothing groundbreaking but effective thanks to a solid cast. Even Shia LaBeauf is good!

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    Visually spectacular, but oddly unengaging. At times brilliant, at times painfully hamfisted, with a dying Earth premise that never quite rings true. The cast are great and the concepts weighty and fascinating, but too often it feels like parts were rushed to get to the bits Nolan was interested in (a bit bizarre in a 3-hour film). The 2001 references are likewise rather too on the nose. Admirable for it's scope and ambition, but lacking Nolan's normal skill in execution.
