    Greta Gerwig charmed me once again.

    ★★★½ Watched 04 Jun, 2012

    I enjoyed this far more than I expected. Josh Brolin steals the show with his spot-on Tommy Lee Jones performance.

  • Snow White and the Huntsman

    Snow White and the Huntsman 2012

    ★★½ Watched 09 Jun, 2012

    Some fantastic visuals and great work by Charlize Theron and Chris Hemsworth, but a weak (squirm-enducing) performance by leading lady Kristen Stewart holds this film back. To her credit, some of the flaws come from poorly written dialogue, but perhaps a more versatile actress could have made it work. Great special effects to turn well-known actors (including Bob Hoskins, Toby Jones and Nick Frost) into the dwarfs, but wonder why it was necessary to resort to such a gimmick. The true heros of this film are the art directors, who created some fantastically diverse locations.

    This is my favourite film of the year so far, and probably my favourite Spike Lee film ever!

  • The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1

    The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn - Part 1 2011

    Watched 26 Mar, 2012

    Based on the previous instalments of the Twilight series I had very low expectations from this film...but it was still much worse than I ever could have anticipated. Some moments were so cringe-worthy I had to leave the room.
    The worst film of the series so far. Well, maybe not as bad as New Moon...lets call it a tie.

    I'd read the book, so I knew what I was getting into...but I really didn't expect it to be THIS bad. How could I have?

  • Friends with Kids

    Friends with Kids 2011

    ★★★ Watched 18 Mar, 2012

    Not as funny as I would expect from a cast like this, but Adam Scott is great and it's overall a cute movie.

  • Burlesque

    Burlesque 2010

    ★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2012

    Everything I know about filmmaking tells me this movie is terrible (it is) and I should hate it (I didn't). Despite its many flaws this film has good music and Stanley Tucci. I reluctantly loved it.

    This continues to feel more perfect every time I watch it.

    Full disclosure: I didn't make it to the end of this movie. I just....couldn't.

    ★★★ Rewatched 07 Jul, 2012

    This is good... just not AS good as the original version.
