  • A Few Good Men 1992

    ★★★★ Rewatched 24 Jan, 2015

    Above average, deliciously '90s courtroom drama with one absolutely fucking spine-tingling scene of such incredible writing and acting that the previous two hours suddenly feel like a school play.

  • Murder! 1930

    ★★ Watched 23 Jan, 2015

    This film, man. One character is a transvestite; other characters call him "half-caste" (he's as white as everyone else in Hitchcock's films) and Truffaut's assessment - in conversation with Hitch - equates cross-dressing with homosexuality. It's like a party at Lord Rothermere's house.

  • 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 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.
