  • The Dark Horse 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 15 Oct, 2014

    Kia ora te whanau.

    My name is Rowan. If I could choose a superpower for myself it would be invisibility. Or a purpose.

    I regret not waiting to watch this great kiwi film on the big screen at home. Not because it's a spectacle, just because a film this good feels to me like it deserves better than the shitty screen in the back of an airline seat.

    I heartily recommend it to you.

  • 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"…
