  • Mr. Turner 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    Brilliantly acted, shot and directed biopic of the great painter JM Turner. I think it's the best Mike Leigh film i've ever watched - mixing great visuals (composition, sense of place, intimacy) with some sly commentary on English imperial society. Timothy Spall is brilliantly unusual as Turner and overall, it's a very impressive piece of British cinema.

  • Wild Card 2015

    ★★ Added

    Acceptable, usual standard Jason Statham film, never absolutely awful or really enjoyable. William Goldman wrote it.

  • War Horse 2011

    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.

  • Red Tails 2012
