  • The Maze Runner 2014

    ★★★ Watched 19 Jan, 2015

    We're going to get out of here. All of us. Okay Chuck!

    Not for the claustrophobic 

  • Noah 2014

    ★★ Watched 17 Jan, 2015

    I really need to brush up on my Old Testament. I did not recall the giant stone angels, or scaled wild dogs, or magical general anaesthetic which only works on animals. Or Hermione. Or Seth. Seriously. Seth.

    How did they convince such a good cast to be in this film? What was the pitch to them?

    I recommend the Ricky Gervais version.

  • 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.
