    Best pop record of the year!

  • Snowpiercer 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Nov, 2014

    An earnest, dystopic action flick basically 100% focused on presenting a fantastical microcosm of adhering to the consequences of a particular economic model. Holding a mirror to society, and all that. Consequently, its premise is totally nonsensical - just a vehicle for that allegorical payload, if you like. That seems to have bugged a bunch of viewers, based on some of the reviews, but I didn't mind. There're many serious movies that are completely unrealistic, and I don't recall this…

    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.
