    ★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2016

    Unfortunately, all the good intentions in the world cannot endow Paul Feig with a strong command rhythm or, say, his camera.

  • High-Rise

    High-Rise 2015

    ★★★ Watched 23 Mar, 2016

    Honestly, this rating is nominal until I see the film again. It's a slippery beast and I really don't know how to feel about it beyond my gut reaction of "Yeah, that was pretty good... I think?"

    The Danish Girl 2015

    Watched 01 Jan, 2016

    The kind of worthy filmmaking I disdain made all the more insufferable because it exploits trans history for an insipidly tasteful, egregiously confused spectacle of Otherness that's designed for readers of the Daily fucking Telegraph.

    Dad's Army 2016

    Oh come on, even the fucking Carry On guys would've been embarrassed to end on a still of Catherine Zeta-Jones' arse accompanied with a title announcing 'The End' (you know, because butts and ends and humour and stuff).
