  • The Dressmaker

    The Dressmaker 2015

    ★★ Watched 28 Jul, 2016

    Was quite enjoying this intriguing nonsense until the final act splintered off into about four barely-connected and tonally diverse directions. Like reading one of those choose-your-own-adventure books from start to finish without ever deciding which story to follow.

  • The Hollow Crown: Henry IV - Part 2

    The Hollow Crown: Henry IV - Part 2 2012

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2016

    Worth it for a handful of terrific scenes, but there's a lot of gubbins to wade through to get to them. Good to see where Ser Jorah Mormont learned his sovereign-loyalty skills though.

  • 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.
