    Part 8 of the Eight Movie marathon to get to Sydney.

    Between 7 and 8, it seemed to make sense to get some sleep, so I did so. This meant that when I awoke, there was no time for Wild. Never mind, I'll see it on the return journey. The Boxtrolls was a film that had decent enough reviews so why not? It didn't really appeal but it fitted the timeframe. The plot follows a town obsessed with cheese and…

    Part 7 of the Eight Movie marathon to get to Sydney.

    Following on from the documentary, it was between this and Wild. Two films I'd wanted to see for a while. Clearly I went for this because it's shorter and seemed a bit more 'fun'. Hawke plays a temporal agent (time traveller) attempting to stop mass atrocities before they occur. He's on the case of a dodgy bomber from the seventies but gosh darn it, can never seem to get…

    Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Oct, 2014

    In the style of Matt, because why not. Saw this with my cinema card and also cos the poster looks damn cool. Look at it. Like some seventies sepia stuff and I'm always down for that. Opens on Gyllenhaal thin as hell. Hair slicked back like some creepy dude. No money but clearly owns a comb. Does bad shit with this grin. Freaked me out a bit but whatever, it's cool.
    He drives this shitty car all over the place,…
