  • Boyhood 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    Ambitious doesn’t even begin to describe Boyhood. Most films that cover a large period of time use make up or effects to age the cast or even hire older actors that look similar to their younger counterparts. Boyhood instead was shot slowly over twelve years chronicling a boy’s growth from young child to adult. Growing up is a journey and we all take and to experience that journey on the silver screen in such a powerful way is a landmark…

  • U Want Me 2 Kill Him? 2013

    ★★ Watched 25 Jul, 2014

    Urgh, just urgh

    That's how a felt watching the painfully obvious final reveal of Uwantme2killhim?.

    Once MI5 were brought in and communicating with the main character through a chat room I was officially done caring and just wanted the film to end. I understand that the film makers were trying to make the lead seem paranoid and mentally unhinged but come on? MI5 talking to someone through a chatroom. Nope that's just ridiculous.

    Urgh, just urgh. Sums up the film perfectly.

    There is no wedding, no hangover or nobody missing this time around. The Hangover Part III sees the Wolf pack attempting to track down Mr Chow…

  • Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 2

    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen. Action that is fast and enjoyable but with a brutal edge inline with the films dark world. Maybe it's only flaw is the…
