  • The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies 2014

    ★★★ Watched 12 Dec, 2014

    I tried with all the will in the world to love this film, but there's just no ignoring that these films never should have been a trilogy. The actual plot is so marginal it beggar's belief and it definitively jumped the shark with its elven Super Mario Bros moment.
    You know, I think Peter Jackson might have just gotten a bit carried away with it all...

  • Iron Man 2 2010

    ★★½ Rewatched 07 Dec, 2014

    I don't remember this film being so rubbish, the script is just terrible. Checked IMDB and turns out the screenwriter's other credits are Tropic Thunder and Rock of Ages, so makes sense...

  • The Descent 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Oct, 2014

    Was pleasantly surprised to discover I mustn't be as big of a wuss as I thought I was, since I watched this and very much enjoyed it.

  • The Shining 1980

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Nov, 2012

    Incredible film, one of my favourites. Was great to see it on the big screen, especially since I hadn't seen the American cut before.
