  • What's Your Number?

    What's Your Number? 2011

    ★★★ Rewatched 22 Aug, 2015

    There are a lot of things I love about this film, the main ones being:
    -chemistry between Faris and Evans
    -running joke re Disgusting Donald AKA Chris Pratt AKA Mr Anna Faris
    -cast generally
    -the "strip Horse" scene

    Cute, funny, good soundtrack. A cut above your average romcom!

    ★★★½ Watched 20 Aug, 2015

    Thoughts I had while watching this movie (in no particular order):

    - I see Rebecca Ferguson picked up tips for "how to dress formally for classy occasions" from Maggie Q...
    - Vienna!
    - Really should go to the opera in Vienna
    - Really should see Turandot
    - Predicting pretty much *everything* that's happening but it's all gd.
    - Tom…

    Perfection. The only problem with this film is it reminds you of the pointlessness of Jackson making The Hobbit trilogy : P

    Special mention to New Zealand.

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Nov, 2014

    Much awesome visuals. Many time travel. Wow.

    (I am prepared to overlook the problems I had with the plot and the characterisation because (a) Hans Zimmer, (b) the robots and (c) that water planet was mm mm terrifying. Good job, CGI dudes and dudettes)
