  • The Counselor 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Jul, 2014

    As they say, you see a thing like this, and it changes you. 

  • Deadfall 2012

    ★★★ Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    Surprisingly good.

    Sometimes your choices are whatever is on Sky movies or nothing. After 10 mins, and with an early alarm already set, I was thinking that nothing was a better choice.

    But I'm pleased we stuck with it.

    There are some twists and more than one wincy moment involving knives and hands or barbed wire fences and skidoos.

    So, kudos Sky movies, maybe I was too quick to dump you for Netflix.

  • American Psycho 2000

    ★★★½ Rewatched 08 Jul, 2014

    Do you like Phil Collins?

    Actually, I do.

    I am a bit young for Genesis, to be honest, but still appreciate their later work. Their two-part live album "The Way We Walk" is a go-to selection. Especially "That's All" and "Throwing It All Away", featuring the sublime keyboards of Tony Banks (who? exactly!)

    But, his solo albums, while much maligned, will eventually get the credit they deserve. I'm sure.

    Granted, there are some cheesy singles, and "In The Air Tonight"…

  • 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.
