  • Seventh Son 2014

    ★½ Watched 28 Feb, 2015

    Misguided, miscast, misshot, misdirected, miswritten, misbudgeted, misacted, unreleased...Seventh Son is just a whole pile of misses. But most of all, the way it misuses it's talented cast. Jeff Bridges obviously doesn't care about whether we like a film like this; it's clear at this point with films like this one and R.I.P.D. that he just makes the films he is inspired by or thinks would be a hoot to make.

    ★★½ Watched 25 Feb, 2015

I had heard much about the struggle to get the film released, of course--filmed by Drew Goddard based on a script by Joss Whedon and himself, delayed to do 3D post-conversion and…

  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Jun, 2014

    Unconventional, disturbing and thought-provoking, Jonathan Glazer's Under the Skin is not a film that will just be quickly banished from your mind whether you like it or hate it. Glazer has been working on adapting Michel Faber's alien psychosexual novel for some time, with a long time reportedly spent in the editing room to get it right. It is no insult to say that he doesn't quite succeed because he still manages to hit many of the right notes with…
