    This Means War 2012

    ★½ Watched 25 Mar, 2015 2

    It happened to be on TV, and I saw more of it than I should have. You know a film is bad when you cringed less while watching the preceding episode of The Bachelor.

  • Interstellar

    Interstellar 2014

    ★★★ Watched 21 Mar, 2015

    Very pretty, but jumped so many sharks it could have been a show at Sea World.

    A beautifully crafted film, with consideration in every shot and a kick-ass soundtrack. Winding Refn certainly earned his Best Director award at Cannes this year, helped greatly by the outstanding performances of Gosling and Mulligan. I'll definitely need to see this again, and while I'm not much a fan of ultra-violence I couldn't imagine it working any other way in this film.

    Inception 2010

    So epic it hurts. I'm willing to gloss over the few plot questions it leaves and just be enveloped by the killer combo of Nolan & Zimmer (whose soundtrack, incidentally, makes *everything* feel epic if you put it on loud enough).
