  • Zootopia

    Zootopia 2016

    ★★★ Watched 25 Aug, 2016

    "A film that will very likely leave a lasting positive impression upon the younger members of the audience; it's just a shame that the adults watching with them will likely feel the harmonious message has been pummelled into them with the delicacy of an elephant stamping on their head".

  • Finding Nemo

    Finding Nemo 2003

    ★★★★ Rewatched 17 Aug, 2016

    "After a remarkably rapid set-up which takes in everything from tragedy to family drama to fast-paced action all in the first twenty minutes, the film then settles into a largely episodic structure in a way that Pixar's output prior to this had largely avoided. Whilst consistently enjoyable, the simplistic delivery of the story does mean that Andrew Stanton's lead directorial debut lacks something of the narrative depth achieved in earlier films from the studio".

  • Home Alone

    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
