    Kill the Messenger 2014

    ★★½ Watched 29 Nov, 2015

    Kill me for wasting nearly two hours watching this.

  • The Blob

    The Blob 1958

    ★★½ Watched 22 Nov, 2015

    Typical B movie fare. I have no idea why this has a Criterion release, without Seve McQueen I'm sure this would have been forgotten about years ago.

  • Whatever Works

    Whatever Works 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Nov, 2015

    An unexpected treat

  • Howl's Moving Castle

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Nov, 2015

    visually stunning, but a narrative mess, not one of his best

  • The 33

    The 33 2015

    ★★★ Watched 18 Nov, 2015

    Nothing wrong with the film, just not the one I was hoping for.

    I was hoping for a procedural that
    - would show us the daily life/routines inside the mine
    - tell us more about the drilling, the science, the tools, the people involved
    - tell us about the capsule, where it came form, science behind it, the brave people who were sent down in the capsule before any miners came out

    Basically I wanted Apollo 13, but set in a mine.

    I couldn't connect with this film, but I would pay serious money to go to this characters stand-up.

  • Keeping Mum

    Keeping Mum 2005

    ★★★ Watched 16 Nov, 2015

    Surprisingly entertaining. Like a grown-ups Nanny McPhee

  • Jesus Camp

    Jesus Camp 2006

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Nov, 2015

    Truly terrifying.

    The scene used on the poster when the tears pour from the girls eyes will haunt my sleep tonight.

    Poor kids.

  • Blue Collar

    Blue Collar 1978

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Nov, 2015

    Richard Pryor gives a great straight performance in this interesting film about friendship, poverty and betrayal. Although a 70s film, this still resonates today.

  • Back in Time

    Back in Time 2015

    ★★★ Watched 11 Nov, 2015

    Enjoyed this more than the original film

  • Fort Apache

    Fort Apache 1948

    ★★½ Watched 08 Nov, 2015

    I'm afraid I didn't get it. I was never convinced by Henry Fonda in his role which turned me off from at the start. John Wayne was John Wayne and the rest was a long drawn out 2 hours.

    Felt more like a TV pilot than a movie
