  • 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.

  • Frankenweenie 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2012 2

    You know, I'm totally sick of Tim Burton. And yet...

    This film is so obviously a labour of love. Full of clever references (my heart skipped a beat in one scene when Danny Elfman went back thirteen years and borrowed from a certain other collaboration of his and Burton's) and oodles of heart, Frankenweenie is a delight from start to finish. Tim Burton has brought something wonderful to life.
