    What We Do in the Shadows 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 15 May, 2015

    Viago (Taika Waititi), Deacon (Jonathan Brough), and Vladislav (Jemaine Clement) are three flatmates who, along with the less sociable Petyr (Ben Fransham), share a house in the suburbs. They are nocturnal , liking to wander through town at night trying to get asked into nightclubs and often like to bring people back to their house for hypnosis and snacks. Oh and they are vampires.

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 07 Nov, 2014

    There are flaws - the watch macguffin, the paradox - but Nolan's film is a magnificent soaring epic. It is badged as sci-fi but it is the human emotions not the spectacle that drive the narrative, McConaughey being at the centre of this as the father who promises to return. These humans make mistakes and have regrets; they are both cowards and heroes. Nolan explores how extremes affect people and posits that love is a force - like gravity -…
