  • His Girl Friday

    His Girl Friday 1940

    ★★★½ Watched 22 May, 2016

    An enjoyable little number for a Sunday afternoon. Grant and Russell spar well together, plot's predictable enough but the dialogue is great. Wouldn't mind seeing the play this was based on.

    Special mention to Russell's wardrobe.

  • Captain America: Civil War

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    OK, first:


    OK, now imma break it down...

    - Team Cap (particularly Wanda)
    - Airport fight scene of kickassitude
    - Black Widow is back and it is GLORIOUS
    - BLACK PANTHER so excited for this movie now
    - works without Age of Ultron (I mean it works with it too, but it's great that we can just overlook AoU and still enjoy this)
    - Cap/Bucky bromance ftw
    - Daniel Bruhl…

    So, things we should learn from this film:
    - never get a housemate while on the rebound
    - never let your girlfriend go down on you until you have proof it actually is your girlfriend
    - don't get a puppy if you live in a high rise (cats are fine though)
    - if your friend is copying your style she may be trying to turn you into her literal twin
    - Jennifer Jason Leigh is NOT, I repeat NOT, Ally…

  • The Lesson

    The Lesson 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Oct, 2015

    This was great: I was gripped all the way through and Margita Gosheva is excellent. Also, lessons to be learned:
    - never take out a loan
    - from anyone
    - ever
    - that's basically it
