  • It Follows 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 16 Feb, 2015

    A simple but interesting concept executed brilliantly. You could easily pick flaws and holes in the plot, but overall I thought it was great. It combined a nice mix of classic horror tropes to create an original and compelling whole. It wasn't the scariest film I've ever seen, but it had a wonderfully creepy atmosphere, a fantastic retro soundtrack and certainly had me on edge walking home afterwards. The ending may disappoint some, but I thought it was perfect. I enjoyed every minute of it.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Apr, 2014

    I was so excited to see this after loving the first film and salivating over the trailers and mounting buzz surrounding its sequel. Whilst many have been craving the films leading up to the next Avengers instalment or discovering what's next for Spiderman or the X-Men, I've only had one sequel on my mind over the last year or two.

  • Kingsman: The Secret Service 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Feb, 2015

    This was loads of fun. A few moments almost lost me, but things were usually steered back on track and the cast, particularly Colin Firth, do a great job. Its cartoony visual style is an odd match against some gritty moments, but it helps the film feel fresh and unique against the glut of cookie cutter superhero blockbusters cluttering up the multiplexes. The film also contains one of the most insanely violent scenes I've ever seen in a mainstream film. Which is awesome :)
