  • Predestination 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Nov, 2014

    This was a randomly chosen watch for me... I'd honestly never heard of it before and so obviously hadn't even seen the trailer, but the plot description sounded decent so I decided to give it a shot. The idea is pretty similar to Looper, but I'd say it's more thriller/drama than action/sci-fi, and the twists are so unexpected that I lost count of how many times my jaw hit the floor. It's one of those films you'll wish you could watch again for the first time, but I'm sure it'll still be just as mind-boggling on rewatch.

  • Drive 2011

    ★★ Rewatched 30 Oct, 2014 7

    Tonight was the premiere of 'Radio 1 Rescores: Drive - curated by Zane Lowe' and that is what this rating is based on.

    It's like an annoying neighbour was blasting the latest Now That's What I Call Music CD while I was trying to watch my favourite film. I never thought I'd hear myself say that I found Drive to be dull, but the rescore felt so disconnected from the film that giving it no score at all would've been an improvement.

    I'm in lesbians with this film.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 09 Jan, 2014

    As expected, The Wolf of Wall Street is an incredible film. Dare I say, it's possibly Scorsese's most entertaining (and without a doubt funniest) film to date. As usual, DiCaprio gives it his all and delivers a stellar performance, as do the rest of the cast. So, you may ask, why didn't I give it the full 5 stars? And the answer would be: continuity errors! There's one at every turn, and they're quite noticeable, too. From a broken glass…
