  • Mood Indigo 2013

    ★★½ Added

    anyone who finds Wes Anderson's direction a bit too normal would do well to check this out.

    Unfortunately the story isn't anywhere near as engaging as the direction. And ultimately Gindry fills the film with SO MUCH detail and imagination that it actually becomes exhausting and detrimental to the film itself.

  • The Class of '92 2013

    ★★★★ Added

    even as an Arsenal fan who grew up in the era of Keane / Vieira, this film made me want to rewatch "that" Giggs goal over and over again. Just a excellent exploration of the club's history and these six players. Loses half a star for letting Tony Blair be in it though.

  • Killer Elite 2011

    ★★ Added 1

    Possibly some of the clunkiest dialogue ever written, performed in some of the most astonishingly bad accents ever committed to film - and a huge huge waste of the potential of its cast. This gets 1 and a half stars for a couple of good action scenes and half a star for introducing me to the phrase "mfwic"

  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★½ Added

    I'm starting to think Christopher Nolan's films are the cinematic equivalent of Stockholm Syndrome - you're in the cinema for so long that you almost end up convincing yourself you had a good time.

    Interstellar is not a bad film. It's well made, contains some gorgeous imagery and just the latest in a series of incredible Matthew McConaughey performances and has a lot to say about our place in the universe and humanity's future. So why did I come out…
