  • Redline 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2012 1

    Holy shit, what just happened?

    Watching Redline with subtitles is like trying to speed read a paper on the theory of thermodynamics as it applied to nuclear fusion while reversing a truck at 80 mph into a tornado.

    But don't let that deter you - because though the story plays out more like an episode from the middle of a series you've never seen the rest of, it is full to burst with classic over the top late 80's anime retro charm and A grade production values. It's no classic, but as a watch once spectacle - it's 100% awesome.

  • Gravity 2013

    ★★ Added

    I've said it before and I'll say it again... Being pretty does not a good movie make. Gravity it a pretty movie.

    For all the believable (and apparently accurate) space physics et al, the way you and the protagonist are assailed with such a relentless barrage of unrelated issues it labours the concept of coincidence to point of being ridiculous. I can't really say anymore about the issues without major spoilers... but seriously? Seriously!?

    I'm not saying it's all bad…
