  • LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League

    LEGO DC Comics Super Heroes: Justice League vs. Bizarro League 2015

    ★★½ Watched 29 Mar, 2015

    Goofy and fun at times, Justice League vs. Bizarro League is not a serious attempt at a DC Comics adaptation in the vein of the DC Animated Universe films. The characters only vaguely resemble their comic book conterparts or even the characters from the previous LEGO DC films. It's a somewhat enjoyable experience though, if you don't take it too seriously. It's short at just forty-nine minutes, but that's the perfect length. It's certainly not great or even particularly good; the best description for this one is "okay."

    ★★½ Watched 27 Mar, 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

    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…
