  • Sex and Fury 1973

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Mar, 2015

And by "this kind of thing," I mean a bad-ass, sword-wielding nude woman engaged in a very bloody battle with Yakuza members in the snow. So, no, not the most progressive film, or anything, but man is it entertaining, combining a fairly simple revenge plot with some genuinely intriguing visuals/cinematography.

    Very cool looking film that is perhaps more ambitious than it can ultimately deliver on - I'm not sure the various storylines finally merging together has quite the dramatic impact the movie is shooting for.

  • Fury 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 26 Feb, 2015 1

  • The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Feb, 2015

    Liked it a lot more than I was expecting to, honestly. Probably the best work I've seen from Cumberbatch yet. And even though it was very much an "Oscar movie," and hit a lot of those sorts of moments pretty hard, it was mostly handled really well. Only thing I wasn't sure about was the framing device, which didn't completely work for me.
