  • Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead

    Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead 2009

    ★★ Added

    Embraces the inherent insanity of the premise to scale a new series high. Even plays with our expectations and gets a little meta on us! Still, couldn't exactly recommend it in good conscience..

  • A Little Chaos

    A Little Chaos 2014

    ★★★ Watched 18 Apr, 2015 1

    I quite liked that this period drama offered an unusual spin on the genre's standard fare - the horticultural, garden-design theme gave this a more appealing point of entry than many other by-the-numbers romances. Ultimately, though, it doesn't really do anything new with the genre; Winslet is stunning, Tucci is funny, and a couple of strong sequences late in the film escalate tension impressively. But the majority becomes a pleasant watch, ultimately too tame to rate highly.

    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.

    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.)
