  • 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)

  • Amores Perros 2000

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Oct, 2014

    Really good. Love how each of the three stories overlap and interweave.
    All three stories drew me in, but if I had to pick a favourite, it would be El Chivo's. That may be because I liked him best of all the characters, of course. Emilio Echevarria, I salute you.

    Also, holy transformation scene, Batman!

    This film in three adjectives? Dark, funny (in places), and touching.

  • Oblivion 2013

    ★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2013

    "I know you can be overwhelmed, and you can be underwhelmed, but can you ever just be whelmed?"

    I wanted to be so much more impressed by and engaged with this film than I was. Honestly, rather than gasping at the supposed twists, I was gasping at the sudden and unexpected appearance of Jaime Lannister. That and the blatant Matrix plagiarising. Though the HAL-esque drones were good.

    Also, the ending...WHUT.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2014

    Good adaptation of the book, great pairing of Rosamund Pike and Ben Affleck, gorier than I remembered, probably not a date movie.

    Special mention to Carrie Coon as Margo.
