  • Funny Face 1957

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    Some gorgeous songs and dances, and Hepburn plays to her strengths (that jazz nightclub dance is something else), but did Fred Astaire need to be quite so cunty towards the end? And if so, why would Audrey want anything to do with him? Because Hollywood I guess.

  • Braveheart 1995

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Jul, 2014

    Someone really should have told the director to go easy on the heroic close-ups of his star.

  • 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.
