  • School of Rock 2003

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 22 Jan, 2015

    I can't help but adore every minute of this joyous, rollicking ride. Jack Black is on his finest form here, from slacking to crackling in thirty minutes flat. The music is a joy to behold, and Black's genuine enthusiasm is utterly infectious. An extremely fun way to spend a hundred minutes; it always leaves me with a goofy smile on my face.

  • Uncle Buck 1989

    ★★★½ Added

    Likeable comedy with a fun performance from a masterful John Candy.

  • Diana 2013

    Watched 21 Sep, 2013 4

    I demand someone, somewhere be held responsible for this atrocity. Wooden, sloppy and hilariously silly, this is amateur-hour filmmaking and a disappointment on every level. Avoid. For your own sake. (Mitigating factor: Naveen Andrews does his best.)

  • The Lego Movie 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 08 Feb, 2014 4

    A meticulously-animated blend of exciting kid-flick comedy-action, and insightful commentary on such. It works on so many different levels: there's the meta-referencing, there's the self-aware understanding of Lego and rules and what it means to break them; but there's also the thrilling action parody, the near-constant runs of insanely good jokes, and the beautifully realised, Lego-fied look. I'll be extremely impressed if any 2014 animated movie outdoes this high-water mark.
