  • Shaun the Sheep Movie

    Shaun the Sheep Movie 2015

    ★★★ Watched 30 Aug, 2015

    "Undeniably funny, perfectly enjoyable and infectiously endearing; but it also never manages to stretch Aardman into doing anything new or different from what we've seen from the studio before. That said, in bringing a TV series with an average episode time of seven minutes to the big screen, Burton and Starzack's film is most definitely a success".

  • Diamonds Are Forever

    Diamonds Are Forever 1971

    ★★★ Rewatched 20 Aug, 2015

    "The main problem with Diamonds Are Forever is the irksome feeling that pretty much everyone involved is simply going through the motions throughout. Whilst previous Bond films may have adhered to a formula, there was always an underlying enthusiasm to them, something which this seventh outing too often lacks... It's not enough to stop Diamonds Are Forever from being an entertaining watch for much of its running time, but it does hammer home how seriously the Bond franchise needed freshening up at this point in its history".

    Home Alone 1990

    ★★★★ Rewatched 01 Dec, 2012

    Joe Pesci delivers the biggest Christmas miracle of the '90s by not swearing for the entire film. Full review here

  • The Dark Knight Rises

    The Dark Knight Rises 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Aug, 2012

    The weakest of Nolan's Batman films, but not by much. Strong performances and breathtaking action sequences, coupled with emotional and thematic threads satisfyingly tied up; this is a great conclusion to a superb trilogy. Full review here
