    "I hate space"

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

    Mad, meta and mesmerising. Those drums.

  • The Avengers

    ★★★★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?

    Urgh I love this film.

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

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

    Well worth the wait, well worth the hype. Oh my goodness Catwoman was amazing and perfect. I did not see the twist with the bad guy (or should that be girl...) coming. A very fitting end to Nolan's trilogy.

    Funny and honest and sweet.

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Feb, 2015

    Weird and creepy. It managed to pay homage to the book while still being very much its own thing.

  • Pacific Rim

    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.

    ★★★★ 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.
