  • Whiplash 2014

    ★★★★ Rewatched 28 Feb, 2015

    2nd viewing and am much more appreciative of this quite extraordinary feat. Not a jazz person but man does this film swing. J.K. Simmons getting the Oscar for his role of Terence Fletcher is very well deserved.

  • The Babadook 2014

    ★½ Watched 15 Feb, 2015

    Over hyped very mediocre horror fare.

  • Strange Days 1995

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2013 8

    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.
