  • The Theory of Everything 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Jan, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • 13 Going On 30 2004

    ★★ Watched 28 Jan, 2015

    Charmless and ill-conceived rip off of BIG and a whole bunch of other movies.

    They work because of the charm and innocence of the lead and the basic old vs young premise.


    Jennifer Garner has no charm and less than sounding like a 13 year old she sounds like a 30 year pretending to be a 13 year old.

    The humour falls flat far too many times and the obsession with how things used to be is Luddite-ish in…

  • What We Do in the Shadows 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 27 Jan, 2015

    Bloody funny.

    Hit's the right mix of satire for the documentary set along with the right amount of biting wit for the modern-ish Kiwi society at the same time.

    For once I found Rhys Darby to be hilarious in the 'Alpha' Male role of the werewolves.

    I would happily watch this a number of times, even the music is cool too.

  • Birdman 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 13 Jan, 2015

    What a trip. Not sure what why or who even, and that makes it all the more satisfying.

    Ignore the critics and just let it sweep you away with its tide.

    Michael Keaton is great and the cast that satellite around him just add to the mess, the lack and the overabundance of insanity.

    Also the perfectly executed camera work makes the tension rise when so much dialogue is being thrown from the stage.
