    "I hate space"

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

  • The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 May, 2012

    Superheroes punch other people in the face, Loki is magnificent and things get blown up. What more do you need to know?

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This film just gets better the more I watch it. How is that even possible?

  • Silver Linings Playbook 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Apr, 2013

    Funny and honest and sweet.

  • Pacific Rim 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 18 Jul, 2013

    Worth the price of admission for Idris Elba voice alone.

    Massive robots smashing even massiever (I know that's not a word) alien creature things in the face with cooler and cooler moves. What more do you need? How about an awesome boy/girl relationship based on mutual respect and kick-ass fighting skills. And did I mention Idris Elba's voice? Yum.

  • Looper 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Oct, 2012

    I love Brick so a combination of Rian Johnson, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sci-Fi was always going to sit well with me. It was smart and action-packed future fun. Sure the final act played out exactly as you would expect but I was too busy enjoying watching Gordon-Levitt play Bruce Willis playing Bruce Willis-action-hero-man to care. Those eyebrows were pretty distracting too.

  • Star Trek Into Darkness 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 10 May, 2013

    Love that the main romance story was between Kirk and Spock.

    Subplot love story between Abrams and lens flares.

  • The Cabin in the Woods 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Mar, 2013

    I don't like horror films so the first half wasn't that great for me, but after the "twist" it was actually rather fun.

    "Thanks zombie hand!"

  • The Hunger Games 2012

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 30 Aug, 2012

    I was lucky enough to win a couple of free tickets to see this at the O2 Arena in Greenwich thanks to Digital Spy. Apparently it was the "unseen" version so there were 7 extra seconds of violence to push it up to a 15 rating. Can't say I noticed them but maybe there was a bit more blood around the place...

    I enjoyed as much as the first time around.
