  • Video Games: The Movie 2014

    ★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2014

    Not bad, but for a work that so proudly proclaims how gaming is now mainstream, it sticks to the basics as if explaining it all to someone who never heard about gaming before. More of a glory piece than anything really informative.

  • The Descent 2005

    ★★½ Watched 17 Oct, 2014

    Just awestruck at this film. I had no idea how they would top Hot Fuzz, but they did. Truly surprised me. Their trademark attention to detail is maintained, I loved the characters and their arcs, acting was fantastic. If I had one complaint it would be that it follows a very similar progression to Hot Fuzz, but I was honestly too entertained to care.
