  • Under the Skin 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 10 Nov, 2014

    um, i need to see this again.
    Was it arty wank or just art or both? damned if i know yet.
    I'm pretty sure i dug it either way.
    That said it was marvellously cold and i can only imagine the legion of dude bros who were sorely disappointed this wasn't the "Species with Scarlet Johansson" that they may have been expecting.

    aka Night Wolf.
    Not terrible - hardly a ringing endorsement i know.

  • 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.

  • The Substitute 1996

    ★★★ Watched 03 Sep, 2014

    fun enough 90s actioner - the sort of thing i would have rented on vhs, but never have seen at the cinema.
    I was surprised how all out it becomes by the end.
    The problematic racial issues (heroic, noble white guy comes in and saves the poor coloured folks from the drug dealers - Latinos, Blacks and Natives all) aren't so bad as to remove the enjoyment of the film, but they're there.
