  • Patch Adams 1998

    ★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    Certainly not a "great" movie, but I succumbed to its warm charms happily, regardless.

  • Liberal Arts 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Oct, 2014

    A warm, honest and likeable indie rom-com. Radnor and Olsen are both underrated talents and they're on top form here.

    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.
