    Parallels 2015

    ★★★ Watched 07 Apr, 2015

    Nice idea, manage to conjure quit the suspense, and the cast does a descent job of quite the slim budget. But surprisingly good. It feels like it's made for TV, though...

    The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 02 Apr, 2015

    Sometimes one hypothetically thinks what a story would have looked like, if was envisioned through someone else's eyes. The Turing enigma would have benefited a lot from a more experienced director. Tylden makes the quite the mess of a good script.

    This film was the decades biggest surprise for me. Just proves that the smallest of films can do the biggest of impacts. And much of it is thanks to Anne Hathaway, who delivers the role of a lifetime.

    The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jun, 2014

    His locations are stunning, his symmetry intriguing. His cameos are great fun, his humour great. The oddness of it all is fantastic. It's cartoonish quality. It's grainy feel. It's dated, yet undated settings.

    It feel like an amazing photograph, taken in a time before my own, with qualities lost for ever, but of magic fabric.

    Like looking at your parents wedding pictures, faded and sepia-tainted by time. From sometime in the 70s.

    The only thing I would want from Anderson now was a more complex story. Not another mystery with child-like qualities.
