    The Interview

    There's maybe one or two films that aren't utterly ruined by Franco's face and voice being in them, and this wasn't one of them.

    The Castle

    ★★★½

    Dad could not believe his luck when he found this place. It was a bargain, and he couldn't work out why. It was just a block of land with a beautiful view. It took him five years to build this place. He bought an unfinished kit home out of the trading post, built it in the backyard and towed it up here with his truck. He was the only bloke he knew with a holiday home. Not a mobile home. A holiday home. And he reckoned we were the luckiest family in the world.

    "Dale, I reckon we're the luckiest family in the world."

I know the film must have been entertaining because the 161 minutes went by in no time, but in retrospect, it's a very flawed film. That has nothing to do with any deviations…

  • City of God

    City of God

    Two years after the fact I've indulged a friend and watched this. I avoided checking it out more to be a nuisance than for any genuine lack of interest in the film or subject matter, but I've got to didn't dissapoint, which is to say, it was exactly what I expected it to be, which is to say, it was good.
