  • The Skeleton Twins

    The Skeleton Twins 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 17 May, 2015

    A rather lovely and laid back dark comedy drama about two siblings who have drifted and only regain contact due to one of them failing to commit suicide. The other isn't exactly nailing her life at the moment either and so when the failed suicidal moves in, it makes for a ponderous affair as they get all nostalgic about their upbringing and where life is taking them.

    He drives this shitty car all over the place,…

    The Guest 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Sep, 2014

    Let me preface this review by saying that it is in no way a five star film. It's a five star film in the same way that The Other Guys, reviewed by Peter Bradshaw in the Guardian, is not a five star film. But sometimes you watch a movie and can't stop smiling. It entertains. 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…
