  • Finding Nemo 2003

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 21 Oct, 2014

    Whether or not the (in my opinion) rather pointless sequel will tarnish this won't be found out for another couple of years but meanwhile it's still not difficult in the slightest to keep admiring one of Pixar classics that puts you through the wringer just as much as the rest.

  • The Judge 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Oct, 2014

    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…
