  • Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope

    Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope 1977

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 Jun, 2015

    Still as magically exciting, beguiling and brilliant as ever. Obviously nostalgia is a massive variable in the Star Wars Amazingness Formula, but let's be honest, EVERYTHING works here. George Lucas gets it so right it's hard to believe he could ever get anything wrong.

  • Mr. & Mrs. Smith

    Mr. & Mrs. Smith 1941

    Rewatched 22 Jun, 2015

    Hitchcock's only attempt at flat-out comedy contains precisely one good gag. Frenzy is funnier. In fact Paul Blart: Mall Cop is probably funnier.

  • 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.
