  • Labor Day 2013

    ★★★ Watched 24 Mar, 2014

    This film just left far too many questions for me to enjoy it more:

    How did the whole thing take place over about 5 days?
    They weren't peaches, they were nectarines.
    Why couldn't they have got a better child actress to play the new girl in town?
    How did that girl figure out Henry was harbouring a fugitive so quickly?
    What did Kate Winslet do for a job to have all that money in her bank account? Welfare and allimony…

  • Delivery Man 2013

    ★★½ Watched 12 Jan, 2014 1

    This really is a straight up scene for scene remake of Starbuck, which I loved. Somehow the dialogue which is almost the same doesn't quite work as well in English - it may be that Vince Vaughn's performance just isn't charming at all like Patrick Huard from the 2011 original. Nevertheless it won me round by the end. Not quite as hideous as it could have been.

    ★★★★½ Added 5

    Proof that a film of this genre can be dark, entertaining and not overrun by an hour. Christopher Nolan take note.

  • Spring Breakers 2012

    A film about a bunch of cunts with the most tedious story and dialogue which could have been done and dusted in 5 minutes. This shit makes Showgirls look classy.

    New contender for worst film of 2013.
