  • Project Moon Base

    Project Moon Base

    Found this on Youtube and my love of sci-fi B movies meant I had to watch it, especially since Robert Heinlein has co-writing credit. The science isn't too bad for the 50's. The portrayal of the female astronaut made me utter the words "oh my god" more than once.

  • Stoker


    Stoker is as refreshing as it is chilling. It has a slower pace than most mystery-thrillers, but instead of being boring there's an almost inexorable feeling something horrible is about to happen. The end, for me, was at first surprising then perfectly logical. It's also immensely emotionally satisfying, but I'm not sure how I feel about that! Mia Wasikowska and Matthew Goode give excellent performances.

    The Big Wedding

    Complete fluff and nothing remarkable. Some great talent, nearly everyone was on their game and there were some laughs. A nice little forgettable watch.

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug

    I feel like this franchise has been whored out to 3D effects and lavish action sequences. Less action and more characters would have been appreciated. Or not calling it the Hobbit and making me expect a story. As a mindless summer action flick this would have been fine.
