  • What We Do in the Shadows 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    Halloweeeen 2014!

    I could not have ended my October Halloween movie marathon with a bigger bang.

    Not only did I watch one of the funniest movies I've ever had the pleasure of viewing, but I also got to meet one of my greatest idols of all time... director and star of the film, Jemaine Clement.

    This film had me in tears. My worry going in was that the jokes would lose their steam through the runtime, but it was…

  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    "Do you know what 'fear' stands for? False Evidence Appearing Real."

    This is one of the most eff'd up movies ever, and probably the creepiest, seediest, most repulsive character I've ever viewed.

    What did I think of Peter Jackson's adaption?

    Jackson captures the feel and essence of the thirty's so incredibly well, that my favourite parts of the movie were that in the beginning and the end when we spend time in New York City. His attention to detail is extraordinary. The original clocked in at an hour and forty-six minutes,…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Oct, 2014

    I had pretty high hopes going into David Fincher's latest movie, and I can easily say that it followed through completely. It's a dynamic, twisty-turny thriller that had me completely engrossed from beginning to end.

    Fincher is very, very good at taking source material and making it look absolutely stunning. His signature "surgical-precision" directing beautifully accompanies author and screenwriter Gillian Flynn's intense story. Just as the characters in the film are always influenced by the media, the audience too is…
