    Furious 7 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2015

    My girlfriend's rating of Furious 7:
    "I'd give it an octopus out of five because nothing in that movie obeys the rules of the universe."

    She's not wrong, although unfortunately Letterboxd has yet to adopt the cephalopod rating system.

  • Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom

    Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom 1984

    ★★★ Watched 14 Feb, 2015 1

    Certainly the weakest of the trilogy, although Joseph Gordon-Levitt is quite good as Short Round.

    Between this and Birdman, 2015 is shaping up to be a good year for jazzy drums in cinema.

    The Stag 2013

    What sounds like an entertaining, if uninspired, proposition (An Irish version of The Hangover), turns out to be nothing short of an utter shambles of a film, with some of the most contrived dialogue I've ever heard and a closing monologue which was so patronising and shoe-horned in it had us literally screaming at the TV. The film's tagline, "Mistakes Were Made", turned out to be something of an understatement.
