  • Coherence

    Coherence 2013

    ★★★★★ Added

    The best. Good everyday characters, serious chills as it builds and a satisfyingly comprehensible ending.

  • Let's Be Cops

    Let's Be Cops 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jan, 2015

    I feel like I should be writing this on a bit of cardboard on a crappy confessional site. Here we go.

    "I enjoyed Let's Be Cops non-ironically".

    Watched it on a plane figuring from the trailer it would end up on my "Not even watchable on a plane" list. And what do you know it's ended up on my very short "Mad me laugh and suck Coca-Cola actually into my lungs" list.

    Recommended if you're tired or something on a plane. Who knows.

  • Shihad: Beautiful Machine

    Shihad: Beautiful Machine 2012

    ★★★★★ Added

    Loved it and found it fascinating. I smiled non-stop through the early years up to Killjoy, and had lots of "ooohhhhhh - righhhhht" interesting moments in the second half. So five stars from me, but if you haven't followed Shihad for most of their career, or wondered where it all went wrong... then maybe knock a star or two off.

  • The Guard

    The Guard 2011

    ★★★★★ Added

    The best in every way possible. Don't be put off by a fairly twee synopsis - it's not a Sunday afternoon old-people charmer. It is violent in parts, but not gratuitously so. And I found it genuinely and consistently funny the whole way through.
