  • Pieces 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 23 Jan, 2015

    Ok first things first, I've given this film 5 stars despite it being one of the most inept films I've ever seen. The story is awful, the acting is terrible, the dubbing is a joke and yet it's endlessly quotable, terribly dated, sexist, racist and fucking hilarious.

    I would not recommend you buy this film but as the full movie is on YouTube I recommend you all give it a go!

  • Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jan, 2015

    A film that makes jazz watchable is quite an achievement and yet Whiplash makes it look easy. An engaging story with fantastic performances all round makes this a real audio and visual treat. Jazz has a tendency for overlong self indulgent solos yet this is actually one of this films strengths. it's only January and we already have a film of the year candidate - remarkable!

  • The Drop 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 01 Jan, 2015

    Ok so let's get this out the way first - yes this is James Gandolfinis final film before he sadly died and he gives a solid final turn. The Drop however is not his film, it's Tom Hardy's who gives a remarkable performance in a film that is tightly directed with an emotional, tense, funny and rewarding script. It's not a big story but the film and the performances are so good I guarantee you'll be gripped from start to finish.

  • The Guest 2014

    ★★★★½ Added

    You know you sometimes see a film where an actor not only steals the show but instantly becomes a film star? Dan Stevens runs away with this film - he's fantastic in a great film with an 80's vibe (in a good way). A cracking film and a real surprise - recommended!
