  • The Man Who Knew Too Much

    The Man Who Knew Too Much 1956

    ★★★★ Rewatched 22 May, 2015

    Inevitably slicker and glossier than Hitchcock's own original, with some improvements (Stewart & Day rank among the greatest movie parents you'd want as your own) but less bone-dry humour. The dialogue-free Albert Hall sequence - a nod to Hitch's origins in silent cinema - is a ruddy triumph.

    Will test your tolerance of "Que Sera, Sera" to its absolute limits though.

    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.
