  • De Palma

    De Palma 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Sep, 2016

    As a document of its subject's fury, obsession and passion, De Palma is untouchable.

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Sep, 2016

    Hunt For The Wilderpeople's appeal stems more from its situation than its comedy, to the point where a good proportion of the jokes stumble when a more honed script and tighter direction and editing could have made them soar. Characterisation is Taika Waititi's strongest point though, and Wilderpeople boasts enough of that to forgive it its flaws. And if he can find a part for Julian Dennison in Thor: Ragnarok, I'll forgive him anything.

  • Oblivion

    Oblivion 2013

    ★★★ Watched 09 Apr, 2013 4

    If you're the kind of person who liked Moon but a) needed every single piece of information explained to you at length and b) didn't think it had enough explosions or Tom Cruise in it, then Oblivion is for you.

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel 2013

    ★★ Watched 13 Jun, 2013 1

    Like Krypton itself, Man Of Steel collapses under the weight of its own excesses, its hollow core the cause of its doom. It's beyond saving.

    That said, fat Laurence Fishburne outjogging a collapsing skyscraper is proper lolz.
