  • Still Alice

    Still Alice 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 11 Mar, 2015

    Short and heartfelt and totally driven by a powerhouse performance from Julianne Moore. While Moore may be completely worthy of the praise she has garnered the remaining aspects of the film just seemed somewhat lackluster. But finding out it was directed by a man who himself was battling a rapidly deteriorating case of ALS has added a sense of marvel, bravo.

    Richard Glatzer passed away yesterday. May he R.I.P.

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Mar, 2015

    Sharlto Copley, Neill Blomkamp and the whole art/animation/sound/visual effects department have created an absolutely incredible and lovable robot in Chappie.

    I can see myself enjoying this even more on a second viewing.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    This movie is without a doubt one of the best of the year, and an absolute pleasure to watch.

    David O. Russel's adapted screenplay for this makes for a ridiculously entertaining, funny while at some points bitter film. It's quite simply superb, not quite grasping hold on the rom-com genre while having enough laughs to steer away from a drama. It traverses the three of these while making you laugh at the weirdest and most uncomfortable moments, which in my…
