  • The Secret Life of Pets

    The Secret Life of Pets 2016

    ★★ Watched 16 Nov, 2016

    "There are individual moments which work - the opening and closing montages of the pets interacting with their owners and homes are well-observed and funny - but these end up too few and far between, the rest of the film padded out too often with overused running gags and tired pop culture references".

  • Lords of Dogtown

    Lords of Dogtown 2005

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Nov, 2016

    "The grainy yet vibrant cinematography of Elliot Davis offers a Luhrmann meets Scorsese vision of the Seventies, remaining distinct and authentic whilst Davis and Hardwicke convincingly filter the decade through the contemporary skater culture of the early 21st Century".
