  • The Skeleton Twins

    The Skeleton Twins 2014

    ★★★ Watched 15 Aug, 2015

    Looking in your eyes I see a paradise
    This world that I've found
    Is too good to be true
    Standing here beside you
    Want so much to give you
    This love in my heart that I'm feeling for you

    Let 'em say we're crazy, I don't care about that
    Put your hand in my hand baby
    Don't ever look back
    Let the world around us just fall apart
    Baby we can make it if we're heart to heart

    And we…

    Some comedies are just better the second time around. That's certainly the case with this. Loved it!

    Tower Heist 2011

    ★★½ Watched 05 Nov, 2011

    It's easy to imagine that in a few years time the following conversation will happen in hundreds of homes:

    "So did you just go to bed when you came in?"

    "Actually no, I turned on the TV and ended up watching this crappy movie."

    "What was it?"

    "Oh, it was called Penthouse Robbery or Apartment Theft or something."

    "Any good?"

    "I can't remember any of it, but yeah it was actually pretty ok!"

    Tower Heist - adequately watchable

  • Never Let Me Go

    Never Let Me Go 2010

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 12 Jan, 2012

    Beautiful and tragic; Never Let Me Go is the type of film which creeps up on you and leaves you devastated for hours afterwards. Romanek's take on Kazuo Ishiguro's novel is note perfect - capturing the writer's ability to never force the story, he bravely allows for the impact of the tale be told through the delicate and muted performances of his excellent cast.

    Sobering yet essential viewing.
