  • Life of Pi 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 17 Jan, 2015

    Not quite what I was expecting. Beautifully shot with excellent effects. Good story too. Excellent film.

  • Frozen 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Jan, 2015

    Taken a while to see this. It's a good Disney animation. Decent story, excellent animation, catchy songs and some laughs along the way. They seemed to struggle a bit to get a baddie into it, Baron Weasel and his lackeys felt a bit shoehorned into it to add some peril and to deflect the boos but he wasn't very convincing.

    ★★★★ Rewatched 02 May, 2012 2

    Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.

    A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.

    If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.

  • Transformers: Dark of the Moon 2011

    ½ Watched 20 Nov, 2011 2

    Quite possibly the worst film I have ever watched. Utterly reprehensible drivel that wasted two and a half hours of my life.
