  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★½ Watched 15 Apr, 2014

    Ugh where the hell do I start? I mean fuck, this film makes literally zero sense. None. Now granted, I have not seen the first ( or the technically 2nd) film but apparently, according to everyone they are not related to each other. Even if they were, sequels are hard usually hard to follow and can be watched on their own accord. This is an entire mess. The story, or whatever there is of it, is all over the place…

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Mar, 2014

    Very entertaining, heartfelt and funny film. The entire cast is great, from top to bottom. The colours, the sets, the costumes, make the film a visual masterpiece. Probably the most Wes-Andersony film of Wes Anderson but that's not a detriment considering the standard of today's films.

    ★★½ Watched 08 Mar, 2013

    Creepy and abstract. This short film finishes before it even have a chance to begin. Maybe that was the point though to capture a mere flash-in-the-pan kind of spontaneity.

  • Nebraska 2013

    ★★★ Watched 25 Feb, 2014

    A very well put together and thought out film. The black and white completely compliments the films tone and nature and isn't there just to invoke some nostalgia for black & white cinema. Ditto to the landscapes which were beautifully shot capturing the empty, barren land is a perfect reflection on the characters themselves. The actors are all great and the characters they play really hold to their convictions. A story that, if in the wrong hands, would have been overly sentimental isn't in Director Alex Paynes.
