  • North by Northwest 1959

    ★★★★½ Watched 21 Apr, 2014

    A dashing hero, dangerous villain complete with sidekick, an alluring woman, lush locales, exciting chase sequences and constantly escalating danger – North by Northwest could almost be a Bond film, but Hitchcock's masterful direction, the rich subtext and sizzling chemistry between Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint transforms an otherwise light-hearted actioner into a heavy-hitting suspense-filled thriller.

  • Grown Ups 2 2013

    ½ Watched 15 Apr, 2014

    Adam Sandler & Co sink to a new low with their amateurish, distasteful attempt at comedy that insults the audience with its laziness. Grown Ups wasn't great – or even good – but had enough about it to make it endurable at least, this abhorrent sequel however is a plot less endeavour that lacks humour of any kind to grab your interest, let alone maintain it. It's lazy, unpleasant and offensive, in every sense of the word, but I could forgive all of those flaws, all of them, if it wasn't such a bore.

His recounting of the true life story of Argo is no exception and further authorises his position as a meaningful director.
