    The Overnight 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 30 Jun, 2015

    For some reason what little I'd read or seen (trust me, it was very little) led me to believe this was a horror film. Bizarre. But no, this is a 'raunchy sex comedy'. Thankfully I discovered this an hour or so before heading to the cinema on the hottest day of the year so far. As you do.

    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…
