  • Sin City: A Dame to Kill For 2014

    ★★ Watched 19 Aug, 2014

    At least six years too late, the novelty of Sin City: A Dame To Kill For's stylistic approach has long worn off, and it hasn't got enough in reserve to make up for that. Its sexed-up violence gets duller with every kill, it has nothing of any use to say and nothing of any interest to add to the first film. Briefly amusing and only very occasionally fun to watch, it's a largely unpleasant experience that wasn't worth the wait.

  • Lucy 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Aug, 2014

    Considering all the madness on display, Lucy is occasionally a little po-faced, and it suffers from the invincibility of its heroine; where's the threat against someone who can manipulate space and time without getting a hair out of place? Still, by the time you get to the space-spunk and the dinosaurs it's absolutely futile to argue with what you're seeing. You're better off just devoting what's left of your mental capacity to soaking up the bonkers and praying they never make Lucy Reloaded.

  • 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 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.
