  • Lucy 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Dec, 2014

    If you have recently purchased a home theatre stereo system then I can think of no better film to recommend to give it a through workout.

    Turn it up loud and soak in it.

    I feel like our subwoofer will need a couple of days to recover.

    The movie itself is okay.

  • Still Alice 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Dec, 2014

    Terrible. Great.
    Awfully tragic. Not tragic at all.
    Heartbreaking. Freighting.
    Hard to watch. Recommended.

  • 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.
