  • It Follows 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Jan, 2015

    We're in teen-horror-as-STD-metaphor territory, but It Follows is far more interested in putting the willies up you than explaining what happens if you get too many willies put up you. A genuinely terrifying horror that works at the most basic levels without the need for intensely graphic torture porn or visual effects that might bring your dinner up.

  • Predestination 2014

    ★★ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

    An interesting idea, handled with all the skill and finesse of a drunk rhinoceros doing cross stitch on a rollercoaster.

  • 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.
