  • Pompeii 2014

    ★★★ Watched 08 May, 2014

    In the voice of Frankie Howerd, there are plenty of ooh ‘ere NO! moments - but ultimately it’s watchable and entertaining.

  • The Other Woman 2014

    Watched 27 Apr, 2014

    The worst film of year - thus far. Unbelievable characters mixed into a script with no ideas. Just awful.

  • The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2012

    Whilst it faced near-on impossible odds, and didn't live up to the heavenly heights of 'The Dark Knight' (for me this is Nolan's Pièce de résistance), Christopher Nolan, does weave his visionary masterclass of filmmaking and storytelling to bring his near perfect Batman trilogy to an epically satisfying and engrossing conclusion - with this unpredictable, twisting and brooding biblical brute of a touching drama-spectacle. It's also solidly acted throughout from its ensemble.

  • The Way Way Back 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Sep, 2013

    Exceptionally fine performances and a snappy emotionally rich script, in which a single line of dialogue is not wasted. It's one of the best and funniest films of the year.
