  • Black Sea 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2014

    Seemingly disregarded by cinemas around the UK, Black Sea is an engrossing and tense thriller set aboard an archaic submarine. Jude Law plays a Scotsman (presumably attempting to beat Tom Hardy's attempt at a Welshman) who loses his job working as a submarine pilot. Whilst being consoled by his other colleagues whom have been made redundant over the years, one mentions that right before being forced out, he had discovered the wreckage of a Nazi U-boat off the coast of…

It has you sitting back and going, "Yeah, why can't all films be like this?" And that's what The Guest did to me. Sure, it…

  • Grace of Monaco 2014

    Watched 04 Jun, 2014

    What a wonderfully vacuous film. Believe the hype.

    Grace of Monaco comes across like a child has been given access to a huge budget and a camera for the first time, experimenting with editing and various shots that probably aren't used all that often. Yeah, there's probably a reason for that. It's like the camera they used had a malfunctioning zoom button.
