  • Independence Day

    Independence Day 1996

    ★★★ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2016

    Celebrated Nigel Farage's independence day by watching the world turn to shit as chaos descends and order collapses on a scale hitherto unseen. Then I watched Independence Day hahaha kill me

  • Phantom of the Paradise

    Phantom of the Paradise 1974

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2016

    Bemoaning intellectual property theft while simultaneously stealing ideas from every corner of pop culture history, DePalma's DeMented rock opera is hyper-self-aware, its own two-facedness reflected in every character. As a satire of the music industry, it's about as subtle as a wrecking (glitter)ball; as a relic of batshit crackers filmmaking, it's a gloriously camp testament to absolutely point blank refusing to give a flying fuck.

  • 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.
