  • British Sounds 1970

    ★★ Watched 07 Feb, 2015

    Sporadically unwatchable. Very little in the way of clear talent or directorial vision going on here, but how about that slapstick with the students trying to rewrite Beatles lyrics in preparation of the revolution?

  • Lucy 2014

    ★★½ Watched 25 Jan, 2015

    LUCY (2014): A young woman does some bad Molly and begins to see the world as a series of infographics.

  • Coherence 2013

    ★★ Watched 24 Aug, 2014

    There's something here as far as an intriguing concept, but Byrkit and his cast unfortunately don't lift it beyond the appearance of a theatre company interpreting the works of Shane Carruth, attempting to jazz things up with tight shots and unearned jump scenes. The slow-burn execution means we get a lot of "what's that??" exclamations in the dialogue/improvisation before things actually start getting interesting two-thirds of the way in.

  • Gone Girl 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 03 Oct, 2014

    Every generation gets the recessionary, batshit, dressed-to-kill skin-crawler American thriller it deserves.
