  • Stuck in Love 2012

    ★★★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2014

    Utterly unrealistic and more flaws than you could ever list, but I was completely and utterly enveloped in the romantic world of this family of writers and the hyper-earnest dialogue through which they communicate. Serious potential to irritate, but I loved it.

  • Damsels in Distress 2011

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2014

    If hyper-mannered deadpan is your cup of joe, then come on up for Damsels in Distress, a gem of a college movie, with some surprisingly deep thoughts on what it means to be cool (or not).

    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.
