  • Demolition

    Demolition 2015

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 May, 2016

    I can see why people would dislike Demolition. Its story is arguably very unfocused and it sorta drifts between different characters and relationships as its running time continues.

    And yet, that just made me love it more.

    Its a heartfelt depiction of loss and whats expected of mourning and grief. As Gyllenhaals Davis Mitchell literally smashes his life, we see the seams of his mind unravel. This is in no small part to Jake G.s wonderful performance, further lending credence…

  • Ratchet & Clank

    Ratchet & Clank 2016

    ★★ Watched 02 May, 2016

    Very disappointing. Considering this apparently had input from the actual writers of the game, I am absolutely amazed that it retained none of the humour of the source material.

    You gotta work hard to get to that level of slapdash and lazy.

    What.

    What?

    I don't get it.

    So?

    I don't get it.

    At least give it a rating.

    But I don't get it.

    Was it good?

    Yes.

    Would you recommend it?

    I don't know.

    How does that work?

    I don't know.

    What?

    What?

    Just give it 2 1/2 or something.

    I can't.

    Why?

    Because it's good.

    Then what's the issue?

    I don't know.

    For fuck's sake.

    I don't understand it. It confused me.

    Just your plebian mind.

    Fuck you.

    Fuck you.…
