  • The Bling Ring 2013

    ★★½ Watched 06 Apr, 2014

    Based on actual events, it is surprising what they managed to do before they inevitably got caught. However, I found myself being irritated by how stupid they were. I mean robbing rich celebrities houses without somehow covering their faces or wearing gloves to avoid finger prints being left behind?! And in this day and age, who doesn't lock their front door?!

  • Stephen Merchant: Hello Ladies... Live! 2011

    ★★½ Watched 05 Apr, 2014

    Thought this would be better. There are a few laughs but not as many as anticipated.

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Jan, 2013 1

    Having read nothing about this film, I watched it on a whim last night and was pleasantly surprised. Not only was it a lesson in History that I wasn't fully aware of in the French deportation of Jews to Nazi concentration camps but it was a very well made film, albeit a sad one. If you like Boy in the Striped Pajamas then I recommend this.

    Is there anything not to like about this film?! How I wish I made the effort to go and see this one at the cinema. The cinematography is beautiful. The acting superb. It's no wonder Alfonso Cuaron won the Oscar for Best Director, it's a completely different film to anything I've seen before. The intensity is electric. Gravity literally picks you up only minutes into the film and does not let go until the credits start to role and Steve Price's title song is in full flow.
