Once upon time in the west, QT dropped the N-bomb a thousand times. Stodgy in places, but with enough charisma to see it through the drier spells.
★★★★★ Watched 26 Apr, 2012
Smart, witty, action-packed, true to source and carrying-on the great Buffy legacy. The comic-book movie perfected.
★★ Watched 26 Sep, 2012
With a disjointed narrative that never satisfies, spectacle that never sparkles & dialogue that's more like monologue, this is disappointingly dull film making.
★★★★½ Watched 20 Oct, 2011
Moody, drifting, perfectly-scored and sporadically vicious tale of a psychotic getaway man who's far from being 'a real hero'.
★★★ Watched 26 Nov, 2012
Another dark Bond, well put-together but I miss the OTT gadgets, the crap puns, the ostentatious glamour. I think I’m on my own there, though.
★★★½ Watched 13 Nov, 2012
Wibbly-wobbly, timey-wimey tale of sacrifice & causal loops. Becomes stodgy in the 2nd act but retains your interest & impresses with its minimalist stylings.
★★½ Watched 03 Mar, 2013
Affleck cribs from 70s political thrillers to produce a CIA caper movie, but Pakula this ain’t. Hits every cliché in the book but is rarely better than average.
★½ Watched 18 Feb, 2013
This is one step away from a bad mid-period Jim Carrey film. Ooh look at me I’m kooky-crazy, try-hard, blah-blah, cynical Oscar-bait.
★★★½ Rewatched 01 May, 2013
Rewatched in 3D - a much more impressive experience, clearly shot (flawlessly) for the gimmick.

Fan service on a grand scale, Jackson's tale of comedy dwarves & CGI orcs is one for the fans only. Luckily for me, I am one.

In space, no-one can hear you ruin a franchise.
★★★½ Watched 24 Sep, 2012
This gentle tale of a rogue Scout and his first love is one of Anderson’s funniest and kindest. It’s also very attractive, with charming period touches.
