    Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 07 Jan, 2015

    As intense and breaktaking a film I've seen in a long long time. Simmons will get all the plaudits (and he's remakable) but let's not forget how captivating and pulsating Miles Teller is.

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2015

    A throughly endearing film, that when it works is simply magnificent and even when it doesn't it's still very very good.

  • Gone Girl

    Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 04 Jan, 2015

    A second watch where I picked up so much more than I noticed first time around (as often happens with Fincher). Once you accept that this is Amy's story and not Nick's everything falls into place so much better.

  • Iron Man 3

    Iron Man 3 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Aug, 2013

    Finally got round to this. Been so pumped for this film, not because it's a new Iron Man film, because it's a new Shane Black film.

    It's certainly my favourite Avengers film to date, but like all the others it never really wowed me. I found it repeated itself a lot and was often reaching a bit far with it's story.

  • Goodfellas

    Goodfellas 1990

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 10 Jan, 2015

    Goodfellas remains one of those films where it's just accepted that it's great, but it's every so often it should be watched just to appreciate how great it actually is. For me this is a film that has an enormous amount of praise, yet still remains in a bizarre way underrated.

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel 2013

    ★★★ Rewatched 24 Mar, 2016

    Enjoyed, but it's got issues for sure. Oh and collateral damage ain't one if them.

  • Big Hero 6

    Big Hero 6 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Jan, 2015

    Was actually very surprised at how much I enjoyed this. It gets a bit baggy towards the end, but overall it's got plenty of laughs and a lot of heart.

  • Inherent Vice

    Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 14 Jan, 2015

    PTA back in playful form. A twisting trip through a befuddled world with a cast of lovely characters. Needs a rewatch to fully wrap my head around, all I know now is I loved every second and Josh Brolin shouting "MOTTO PANUKEIKU" is an utter joy.

    "Motto Panukeiku"

  • Apocalypse Now

    Apocalypse Now 1979

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 Mar, 2016

    Still ranks as my number one film of all time. It's madness in film form.

  • Die Hard

    Die Hard 1988

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2011 3

    This has to be one of the ultimate none Christmas, Christmas movies.

  • John Wick

    John Wick 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 18 Jan, 2015

    Stylish as fuck and my god Reeves does action well, his ability to glide in complex action sequences is a joy. Loved this film!
