  • The Skeleton Twins

    The Skeleton Twins 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Feb, 2015

    Just a decent wee drama really, solid but not exceptional. Would be a hell of a bummer if you thought it was going to be a comedy based on the leads.

  • Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning

    Universal Soldier: Day of Reckoning 2012

    ★★★★ Rewatched 07 Feb, 2015

    Second watch certainly brought out all the clunky scenes and things that didn't work, but this movie is still just a million times better than it deserves to be.

    Probably repeating myself but it's more a psychological horror than an action flick and it's no surprise to me that fans of the franchise complained about this being boring and/or too weird.

    There's a lot of violence, and there's even a car chase, but it's all steadfastly grim, not even remotely…

    I laughed so much I wanted to lie down. Once. Ridiculously uneven on the lols.

    One of those highly-rated movies that is just bloody awesome (mate). On a big screen anyway... nothing happens in a rush, the cinematography's great (so much interplay between massive shots and claustrophobic close-ups), the soundtrack is Morricone's best, the story's good enough, the dialogue's fun, all the main characters are interesting... Absolutely top notch.
