  • The Lunchbox

    The Lunchbox 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Jun, 2016

    A remarkably sweet film. The central relationship is very tenderly portrayed. The leads are very good in their roles, both given fully rounded consistent performances. The food also is such an important part of this film. It is hard to watch this without feeling hungry, as the food is such a key part of the relationship. A good watch, and well worth it.

  • Suicide Squad

    Suicide Squad 2016

    ★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2016

    A fun but flawed film. The tone is all over the place, with an initial intro showing the horrors of unfair imprisonment transitioning to an intro showing what fun it is being a costumed villain.

    In my opinion, this was being made as a dark film, with a satirical bite, but following the reception of Batman V Superman, recent upbeat pop music was inserted to lighten the mood.

    This is a shame as the story and characters are really interesting.…

    Sucker Punch 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Aug, 2012

    Not perfect, but a lot better than I expected. The fight scenes are a bit like music videos, but this is fine, as the ideas and main characters are the drive here and not the action. It's not quite inception, but the film covers about as many themes and ideas as Snyder's watchmen, which is impressive for his first non-adaptation.

    One of the most brilliant films I've ever seen. One of my all time favourites and a creative joy. Gets better every time I rewatch it, I strongly recommend it.
