  • Zulu 2013

    Boring, conventional murder mystery which is also trying to be a comment on post-Apartheid South Africa. Orlando Bloom is generally crap in everything and here he's trying to be a hard drinking, dysfunctional detective. Forest Whittaker is an actor with gravitas but he's doing nothing either. The director, a Frenchman, made the original version of the Hollywood remake, "The Tourist".

  • Is the Man Who Is Tall Happy? 2013

    ★★★½ Added

    Really inventive and insightful study of Noam Chomsky, put to animation hand drawn by the director of the film, Michel Gondry. The film is less about Chomsky's leftist politic views and more of an attempt to enlighten and inform the viewer about the seemingly unfathomable structures of our lives through the the prism of one of the worlds most renowned thinkers. Charming, interesting and never overbearing.

    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.
