  • Keith Richards: Under the Influence

    Keith Richards: Under the Influence 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 29 Sep, 2015

    Keith Richards: Under The Influence is a light documentary. It is an extremely likable portrait of a man who's seen and done pretty much anything you could think about - and then some - and he gives an insight into his musical inspirations here. So, we get great music, some conversations with the man himself and we see him working on his new solo album which basically showcases these inspirations. It's entertaining, a little bit too short and nowhere near all too in-depth, but the charm it exudes makes up for that in a big way.

    It's probably good David Fincher made Alien 3 if only to confirm the fact that he is human after all.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here. I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…

  • What Dreams May Come

    What Dreams May Come 1998

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    There is no chance I am able to write an objective review after having seen a Robin Williams film now, but who cares about objectivity at a time like this.

    Minor spoilage included, proceed at your own risk.

    I have consciously avoided What Dreams May Come since its theatrical run,but I felt like this was as good a time as any as the sad plot might prove to be something of a cathartic experience for me. The story of doctor…
