  • White Christmas 1954

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Dec, 2014

    I'm still more of a It's a Wonderful Life kind of guy, but I'm glad I gave this a watch. Definitely deserves its rank as one of the Christmas greats.

  • Top Five 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Dec, 2014

    Glad I am not alone in getting a Before Sunset vibe here. Chris Rock shows real bravery writing and directing so much walking and talking, allowing the chemistry between him and Rosario Dawson to take center stage. Through the first half I wasn't sure how I felt since a lot of the ground had been covered in the trailer. But the more we got to know not just Rock's character Andre and all of his issues but Dawson's Chelsea Brown…

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Not a film that ever feels scary, but I left the cinema uneasy anyway. The mood is masterfully set, as always, by David Fincher and his frequent collaborators Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross. The score and lighting can turn scenes that seem straight out of a romantic comedy into something foreboding. But this film isn't afraid to be funny either. It is definitely Fincher's most comical work and dark humor seems to be something he can do very well.


  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    Jake Gyllenhaal terrified me in this. I was constantly made uncomfortable by him. But really, the true villain of this piece is the media. Between this and Gone Girl, the news has become the BIg Bad of 2014.
