  • A Most Wanted Man 2014

    ★★★★ Added

    A tense, very well paced intellectual thriller. A welcome reprieve from the car chase and explosions, this one is all down to the great acting, and Phillip Seymour Hoffman is once again spectacular.
    What a great loss.

  • Princess Mononoke 1997

    ★★★★½ Added

    This one of the most serious and scary of the lot, and I wasn't sure how the kids would deal with it but they took it surprisingly well. Certainly got them to think.

  • In Bruges 2008

    ★★★★ Added

    A brilliant black comedy.
    Very interesting and refreshing way of telling a story for something that could easily have become full of cliches and sentimentalism.

  • Serenity 2005

    ★★★★★ Added

    It's got very low-fi special effects, it's occasionally cheesy, and yet it works. It's hard to describe what makes this movie (and the series obviously) so good, but the best I can come up with is that it's honest, unpretentious, genuinely original, and fun.
