  • Morning Glory 2010

    ★½ Rewatched 07 Dec, 2014

    I have no idea why I just re-watched this terrible terrible bland pointless film. I hate myself a little bit.

  • Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Nov, 2014

    Fun, inventive, Tilda Swinton does a Yorkshire accent - it has all the elements of great sci fi with bonus points for allegorical social commentary.

  • Melancholia 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Oct, 2014

    A film I'm glad I've seen but maybe not one I need to see again.

    A force of emotion and mood more than anything else.

  • Philomena 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Oct, 2014

    "Will it be sad?" I asked my mum.

    "A bit, but it's uplifting really"

    *cue dramatic sobbing through the entire film*

  • Lucy 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 12 Sep, 2014

    Silly but fun and full of flair.

  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Aug, 2014

    A bucket load of fun.

  • Veronica Mars 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 15 May, 2014

    It was never going to live up to the series, but I was really pleased with the way things worked out for Veronica. There was enough sly winks and references to keep this marshmallow entertained.

  • Gravity 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 11 May, 2014

    "I hate space"

    In which one woman proves once and for all it really is better if you read the manual first.

  • Blue Jasmine 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2014

    I didn't expect this to be so downbeat. That ending is rather brutal.

    Cate Blanchett perfectly plays the crumbling facade of a woman who can no longer con herself.

  • Celeste & Jesse Forever 2012

    ★★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014

    Kind of like a reverse rom-com, you're rooting for them to break up properly and become best friends again. Makes a nice change.

  • Only Lovers Left Alive 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Mar, 2014

    Who needs plot? I was happy to be mesmerised by the characters, landscapes and soundscapes in this film. Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston just drip with cool. The literary jokes and dry humour were a pleasant surprise.

  • In a World... 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Feb, 2014

    Smart and funny. What more do you need.
