    The Bourne Legacy


    Fairly boring and pointless. Doesn't fit the vibe of the first three Bourne films and there isn't any appearance from Bourne himself. This movie adds some backstory to the government superspy program, but such little backstory that the movie isn't worth watching. It purports to run alongside the other movies while being barely connected to them.

    This is a generic spy movie with a vaguely sci-fi twist. Its abrupt ending doesn't conclude much either.

    The Bourne Ultimatum


    Same formula as the first two: globetrotting super-assassin Bourne is the target of yet another shadowy government conspiracy as he uncovers more clues about his mysterious past. But there's less emotional impact in this one, since Bourne is mostly flying solo here, and we already know most of what we need to know about him.

    The consistency of the first three Bourne movies is both bad (makes sequels a bit superfluous) and good (very few trilogies are decent all the way through; there's usually a big drop-off in quality, which isn't really present here). Not sure how I feel about the final couple of scenes.

  • Possession


    There are some weird moments which verge on being interesting, but this movie is largely boring and irrelevant. The characters are unlikable, the plot is haphazard, the script is irredeemable, and nothing is scary. Several scenes are comedic. For the first 45 minutes, this is merely a boring and poorly-done story of infidelity. One scene makes it seem like things will pick up, but Possession keeps going, meandering until the final 30 minutes.

    The cinematography is good in spots and…

    Closet Land


    Odd low-budget small-scale dystopian film. Will probably make some people uncomfortable, but the craft itself is superb. All elements are above average, from the story to the pacing and music. Shame there isn't a high-quality version of this which exists. It'd be stunning in HD. I'm not sure a remake is possible either, because how can anyone top Alan Rickman's performance here? He nailed the role 200% and shows what it really means to be an ACTOR.
