  • My Summer of Love 2004

    ★★★ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

    It looks beautiful, but for me, it didn't quite live up to the promise of its gorgeous cinematrography and appealing setup.

  • The Game 1997

    ★★★★ Watched 24 Nov, 2014

    It's probably a little messier and ramshackle than much of Fincher's work, but I still found a whole lot to enjoy here. The core of the film really appeals to me, and the intrigue and mystery surrounding it works well, layer upon layer of confusion building and building. Some fantastic setpieces - the clown, "White Rabbit" - stick in the memory, and I was satisifed by the conclusion, which isn't always easy with this kind of film.

  • 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.
