  • Sabotage

    Sabotage 1936

    ★★★★ Rewatched 23 Mar, 2015

    The bus sequence alone is enough to recommend Sabotage to anyone as a masterclass in montage. Hitch always felt he got the scene's climax wrong, but what does he know? Nothing, that's what. Idiot.

  • The Voices

    The Voices 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Feb, 2015

    An unexpectedly gleeful delight: bold and independent, with a wilful disregard for mass appeal. It might freak a few people out but it's got rhino-sized balls, and these days that's rarer than a decent Ryan Reynolds film.

  • 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.
