  • Son of Batman 2014

    ★★★ Added

    Son of Batman is a competent animated retelling of the famed comic book arc revealing Damian Wayne.

  • Trust Me 2013

    ★★ Added

    Trust Me suffers from a case of mistaken identity. Despite its earnest attempts to deliver something deep and thought provoking, it fails to ignite and turns out to be nothing less than American Beauty lite.

  • The Lego Movie 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Apr, 2014

    The LEGO Movie is awesome.

  • Maleficent 2014

    ★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2014

    Maleficent manages to deliver nothing more than a spectacularly captivating performance by Angelina Jolie.

  • The Amazing Spider-Man 2 2014

    ★★★ Added

    The Amazing Spider-Man 2: Rise of Electro is a wonderfully glossy documentary detailing the evolution of dubstep.

  • X-Men: Days of Future Past 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 25 May, 2014

    X-Men: Days of Future Past is arguably the best film in the franchise and manages to provide one of the most rewarding payoffs possible to those who have stuck with the series through thick and thin. Even The Last Stand.

  • Tom at the Farm 2013

    ★★★★½ Watched 04 Jun, 2014

    Xavier Dolan takes a more sinister sidestep away from his previous efforts involving tortured and impossible love, and runs recklessly into darker territory with Tom At The Farm, a film that will reveal its true self several days after viewing. Compelling, yet frustratingly twisted.

  • Boyhood 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 06 Jun, 2014

    Boyhood is a deceptively straightforward yet remarkably beautiful movie that will help you stop seizing the moment and let the moment seize you.

  • Godzilla 2014

    ★★★ Watched 19 May, 2014

    Whilst Godzilla makes an impressive resurgence on western screens, the cardboard characters and hokey plot lines detract audiences from the intricately planned fight sequences and impressive special effects that bring the king of monsters to life.

  • Noah 2014

    ★★½ Watched 19 Apr, 2014

    Noah is wonderfully derivative, yet biblically stupid.

  • Bounce 2000

    ★★ Added

    Bounce is a diabolical misnomer of a romantic comedy whose descent into insincerity and blatant disregard for legitimate human emotion is unforgivable. Appreciated the premise, despised the end-product.

  • Forces of Nature 1999

    ★★★ Added

    Forces of Nature suffers from a case of mistaken identity. Attempting sequences involving high-brow philosophical concepts amidst the pre-packaged formula of tried-and-tested romantic comedies provides insincere results. Entertaining, but not engaging.
