  • 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.

  • Future Shock! The Story of 2000AD 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    Wonderfully frank and evocative retelling of how a little, scrappy British anthology comic, hated by a succession of publishers, changed not just comics but the world of entertainment. Essential for every geek.
