  • National Treasure: Book of Secrets

    National Treasure: Book of Secrets 2007

    ★★★ Rewatched 30 Aug, 2015

    it's not "good" per say, but it's light hearted and fun and just perfect for a "i drank a lot last night" Sunday morning watch.
    Also, i get a kick out of Canuck Bruce Greenwood as the US President

  • Birdman

    Birdman 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Aug, 2015

    far more interesting from a film-making perspective than i thought it would be, though still not wholly original.
    The floating camera, pseudo-single take made me think of Enter The Void more than anything else. Not a bad thing, but not as ground breaking as some would say.
    That said, the rest of the film was enjoyable, with Emma Stone giving my absolute favourite performance.

    The November Man 2014

    ★★½ Watched 21 Aug, 2014

    Old distinguished Bourne vs young good-looking Bourne.
    Fun enough, if highly derivative spy action-thriller.
    Nice to see an older guy kicking butt but not looking like a 'roided out monster.

  • Cannibal Terror

    Cannibal Terror 1980

    Watched 04 Mar, 2012

    A pointless, dull entry into the Italian Cannibal cycle of the 80s. I don't expect a lot from these films, but this one failed even the lowest of expectations. The gore is uninspired, the pacing is slow -even for one of these films, and the nudity is, well I'd be fine not seeing any of them nude ever again. Avoid.
