  • Inside Out

    Inside Out 2015

    ★★★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    You've seen it before in comic strip The Numskulls (I may be showing my age here) or Red Dwarf episode Confidence & Paranoia, but this is next-level emotional anthropomorphism for Generation Pix.

    The Incredible Suit

  • Shadow of a Doubt

    Shadow of a Doubt 1943

    ★★★★ Rewatched 15 Jul, 2015

    The plot's a bit thin - young Charlie thinks the world of Uncle Charlie, young Charlie changes her mind - but kudos to Hitch for bringing murder into the home where it belongs, and for doing it so stylishly. I want to see that slow zoom into Joseph Cotten's face at the dinner table projected a hundred feet high.

  • 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.
