  • Honeymoon 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Sep, 2014

    An impressive and befuddling piece of suspense ladened entertainment. Keeps you constantly guessing as to what is happening, but never really spoon feeds you, at least until the ending. Nice performances from Rose Leslie and Harry Treadaway as well as a damn enthralling score keep the film afloat before things get strange near the halfway point.

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 13 Sep, 2014

  • Short Term 12 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 15 Sep, 2013 1

    Not much can really be said about Short Term 12. I'll put it simply; it makes you lose all faith in humanity... and then regain it in the span of 96 minutes. Brie Larson deserves that Best Actress statue now. One of the years best, if not thee best. SEE. IT.
