  • My Old Lady 2014

    ★★½ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    Kevin Kline inherits an apartment in Paris in this pleasingly gentle comedy drama but finds two lodgers who he can't get rid of and far more about his own family history than he ever bargained for to boot.

    Well performed by all three leads who are as charming as they have always been, and they arguably raise the material a little as while the film can be often very funny, dramatic and emotional in trying to find a balance for…

  • No Good Deed 2014

    ★½ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    Idris Elba and Taraji P Henson try their best to sell the big moments in this home invasion thriller but can do nothing with a poorly directed film with an obnoxious soundtrack, a disjointed script that doesn't seem to know at times what it wants to be and even at under a hour and a half is a colossal bore that only perks up due to the characters laughable decision making. Also the big twist responsible for lack of press screenings before hand just makes this seem even more like a bad TV movie that accidentally found it's way onto the big screen.

    What an incredible amount of fun. Can't single out my favorite dialogue/moment as I would be here all day. Downey beginning getting his career back in order and three years before Iron Man is a great foil for the events around him. Showing the quick wit and humour that would be his trademark when…

  • Seven Psychopaths 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 05 Dec, 2012 1

    Four years after In Bruges Martin McDonagh returns to deliver a truly bonkers farce filled with wonderful meta-humour carried excellently by maybe the best ensemble cast this year.

    Hilarious dialogue that I've been quoting since i got out of the cinema, just as good as In Bruges at times. Rockwell steals the whole thing with an energetic and mad performance. Gets all the best lines and orchestrates the best scene in the film. His campfire tale is a colossus that…
