  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Apr, 2014 1

    A huge improvement over the distinctly average first one in every way, and it also delivers on the promise of 'The Untold Story' that we didn't actually get the first time around.

    I really enjoyed it.

  • The Raid 2 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2014 1

    I think every filmmaker should now just pack up and go home, there's no point carrying on anymore. As someone so eloquently said just after the Sundance screening (I can't remember who so please forgive the lack of credit): Gareth Evans has just won movies.

    This film is, in my opinion, perfect. The first Raid film was my favourite of 2012, and so the sequel had a lot to live up to. Bigger and grander in every way, it delivers…

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Apr, 2012 2

    Outstanding film, with a fantastic performance from Sam Rockwell, who manages to keep the audience gripped despite being the only actor on screen for pretty much the whole film. By far his best film.

  • Easy A 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Aug, 2012

    Really funny, entertaining movie. Emma Stone is great - pretty, smart, sarcastic, witty - the perfect casting choice. Stanley Tucci and Patricia Clarkson are brilliant as the most awesome parents ever!
