  • Doctor Strange 2007

    ★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2014

    Paint by numbers plot. Not the greatest animation. Felt rushed. Got bored. The end.

  • L.A. Confidential 1997

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 09 Jun, 2014

    Recently bought the Blu ray version. There's something really magical about the high def format when you're watching a movie with stunning set and design like L.A Confidential.

  • Man of Steel 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Jun, 2013 1

    After the bitter taste that was left in many a mouth by Bryan Singer's 'Superman Returns', many a fan of the big blue Boy Scout have waited with bated breath for a movie that would live up to the often romanticised 1978 Dick Donner film. Well I'm happy (and relieved) to say that if you're looking for a Superman movie that harkens back to Christopher Reeve's glory days, you are gonna be sadly disappointed.

    Man Of Steel's aim was simple…

  • Synecdoche, New York 2008

    ★★★ Watched 04 Mar, 2013

    A hugely ambitious movie that I can honestly say is possibly the most difficult film I've ever had to rate or critique. Hoffman has some signs of greatness here, but the screenplay is enough to have the greatest minds in the world on the fence. I have the upmost respect, however, for the director - Charlie Kaufman's vision, and his refreshingly oblique take on modern filmmaking.
