  • Into the Woods

    Into the Woods 2014

    ★★★ Watched 17 Aug, 2015

    Ok, so I love it all. I love the amazing Streep. I adore Kendrick. I even love Pine, for being so completely ridiculous. I love the music, the songs, the sets. I love the story, the entanglement and the mischief. But I hate how Marshall shows off. He seems more I love with himself than he respects the audience. Too long, to detailed and too true.

  • Foxcatcher

    Foxcatcher 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jul, 2015

    I liked it. A lot. It had a lot to offer. At least it broke down some Hollywood stereotypes. But how downbeat, heavy and depressing does a film have to be, to justify a man's dark mind? I like the tone, but it's not justified. It's a choice, taken to the full.

    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

    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.
