  • Pitch Perfect

    Pitch Perfect 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Aug, 2015

    Enjoyed this much more than I expected.

    Deducting a half star for the shameless Ping reference. And another half for the predictable ending (aren't endings supposed to be the best part?)

  • Listen Up Philip

    Listen Up Philip 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 16 Aug, 2015

    Philip is a baby and an asshole. I realise that is intentional. 

    Philip plays piano.

  • Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police

    Can't Stand Losing You: Surviving The Police 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014 2

    The rise and demise of The Police as told through the lense of Andy Summers, the guitarist and probably lesser known of the three band members. 

    This is the sort of documentary that I could watch all day and all night and into the early hours of the morning and contemplate rewatching the next day.

    The story of his relationship with his wife and family, which is woven through, is heartbreaking. 

    I'd like to see more of his photography. What an awesome record and memory. I imagine him getting lost in that archive for days. 


  • Upstream Color

    Upstream Color 2013

    ★★ Watched 20 Jan, 2014

    96 mins is a long time to feel as lost as I found myself watching this.

    This film sounds amazing. Shut your eyes.
