  • After Hours 1985

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Sep, 2014

    Well that was.... odd. I would have loved this film if it had some kind of explanation, but ending as abruptly as it did, I've just been left thinking "Whatttttttttt?!!" But it's still a great film, because it constantly feels like it's going somewhere amazing. So whilst I'm frustrated with how it ended, the dark comedy throughout must be applauded.

  • A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014

    ★★★ Watched 17 Sep, 2014

    I love Family Guy, but I didn't enjoy how Seth MacFarlane's humour translated into a feature film with Ted, so I didn't expect to enjoy this film. There were many moments were I thought the comedy was cringey and taken too far, but I also found myself laughing like a little girl far too often. MacFarlane was somewhat likeable, but Charlize Theron's character is what makes this work. The supporting cast are all great though, especially Neil Patrick Harris who fit in perfectly.

    First of all, I like Kubrick's films, love some of them in fact, but I can't even pretend to like this one. It was heavy breathing and scenes of nothing (pretty nothing, but nothing nonetheless) against epic music, or sometimes even just a creepy choir, for 140 minutes straight. I very nearly fell asleep…

    I was told beforehand that this was a love it or hate it film. I happen to agree with none of the negative reviews and actually really liked it.

    Firstly, I don't know what everybody is going on about the huge emphasis on rape for. There is a focus, yes, but nothing is ever shown, if it even happens at all, as it is all rather implied. From the sounds of it I thought I was going to be witnessing…
