  • Ender's Game 2013

    ★★ Added

    Like so many book adaptations, this simply tries to cram too much in too short a time. The pace is all wrong, everything is rushed and a lot of things are left unexplained. It was always going to be a tough one anyway, but it turned out even worse than i thought...

  • This Is the End 2013

    ★★½ Added

    I don't think I'm hip enough for this. It all seemed self-indulgent and self-referential to me.

  • 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.
