  • Fury 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 15 Dec, 2014

    David Ayers, Fury is by all reckoning a fine piece of work. It looks wonderful, especially during the pulse pounding Tank battles. Has a great cast on good form and works hard to deliver more than just a surface detail war movie.

    It is unfortunately let down, by it's episodic structure and lack of continuity in the script department. The film wants to take us on a journey through the hell of war, and so puts us and it's principal…

  • Interstellar 2014

    ★★★ Watched 09 Nov, 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2013 6

    The Good:-

    Mr T has spent his Fistfull of Dollars well. Django Unchained looks fabulous, sounds fantastic and is performed with all the vim and zip you would expect from the Director of Pulp Fiction and Jackie Brown. The Script is very good and manages to balance riotous laughs and riotous violence in the way only QT can. There are some great blink and you miss them cameos(now de riguer for a Tarantino movie but still fun). Bruce Dern pops…
