  • The Zero Theorem 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    A refreshing,non-formulaic film on an LSD trip by Terry Gilliam is just what I needed :)
    I've been on a crap streak of bad films lately so a solid entertaining film is just what the doctor ordered.
    Christoph Waltz yet again puts in a stunning performance. Melanie Thierry is sexy, endeering and has good chemistry with Christophe's character.
    I just loved the looks of Mr. Gilliam's The Zero Theorem. The set pieces are just stunning and they feel like one…

  • Divergent 2014

    Watched 26 Jul, 2014

    What an almost complete waste of time this was. If it wasn't for Shailene Woodley this would've been an utter disaster. In the beginning of the story I was like..hey wait a minute... this feels like the hunger games. But as the story "progressed" I was like...nah hunger games sucks less than this and that's saying something since I definitely am not a hunger games fan. I haven't watched any of the twilight films but Divergent is how I vision them to be..shallow,bad acting and utter garbage!

  • Strange Days 1995

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2013 7

    What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Mar, 2014 2

    One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
    Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
    I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
