  • The Thin Red Line 1998

    ★★½ Added

    Big fan of films about the Pacific war and i've seen plenty (from films by Clint Eastwood and Frank Sinatra to films by Kon Ichikawa and Kinji Fukasaku), but i struggle with Terry Malick's films. They're visually poetic and shun convention which is good, but i find them unengaging, sloppy and pretentious at the same time. I dunno, nice shots of grass in this i suppose.

  • Starred Up 2013

    ★★★ Added

    I've seen this before but for some reason forgot to review it. This was a second viewing and i think pretty much the same about it - decent prison film with some original moments and a good cast. Never threatening greatness but a good, naturalistic prison drama.

    Manipulative, boring, emotionally simplistic drama directed by Steven Spielberg. The film is way too long, as usual with directors like Spielberg, he thinks he is making an epic for the sake of making an epic so it's very long winded. I'm something of an animal lover, but i gotta be honest, i didn't give a fuck about this fella or his horse.
