  • Cleanskin 2012

    Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    Got about halfway through before I had to bail. Do we need another white-versus-brown terrorism film with a washed-up ex-military man spouting nationalist bullshit like "did you serve for your country, son?" and naïve young Arab-Englishmen being inducted into London's seedy Muslim terrorist underbelly?

    P.S. Lols to whoever thought they could take Sean Bean out with two bullets in the first scene. You have to chop off the head.

  • In a World... 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Jan, 2015

    I mean yes this is a little straw-man-ish in places, especially when you know that Lake Bell is the writer/director/star/hero of the film, but who cares? It's a great concept and she's a great character and it's PUNCHING UP so whatever. More please.

    I wish Luc Besson had been using 10% of his brain's capacity when he made this film.

  • The Avengers 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2012 4

    Joss Whedon and Tony Stark were meant to be together. Joss Whedon and Thor, not so much. The man needs to learn to kill some darlings: I know you like your witty one-liners, Joss, but having a team of six superheroes all channelling Xander Harris in the middle of cataclysmic battle sequences just isn't appropriate. Still, an immensely entertaining film. See it in 2D.
