  • Tammy 2014

    ★½ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    Wherein several talented, funny women are thrown into a patch of cinematic quick sand that pulls them in quicker and quicker the more they frantically try to make it funny.

    There is so much wrong with Tammy, I don't know where to start. With the severely undercooked characters? The pointless, meandering plot? The completely random scenes?

  • And So It Goes 2014

    ★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2014

    ★★★★ 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…
