    Starry Eyes 2014

    Watched 27 May, 2015

    So lacking in character in might as well have been written in WingDings. The main actress tries her best to deal with a derivative, one-note dronefest of a script but I think her time might have been better spent recreating that Hollywood producer scene from 'Mulholland Drive' for her YouTube account than be involved in any way with this crap.

    Soundtrack was the best thing about it. Cool sounds.

    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★ Watched 23 Apr, 2015

    It's Team Frankenstein vs. The Monster with added soap-opera romance & rapid fire quips.

    Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Feb, 2013

    I watched this ON A BOAT! The Tall Ship in Glasgow, to be precise. In the hull, where it was cold and damp & we had uncomfortable chairs, I was sat right at the front with a crick in my neck & the film jammed at "we're gonna need a bigger boat" - but I didn't care! Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
