    Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story

    ★★★★

    (Rewatch of the film, the super self indulgent long cut)

  • Extraction

    Extraction

    ★★

    Did Joe Russo simply just watch Man on Fire and go “Yeah, let’s just rewrite that and set it in Bangladesh with Chris Hemsworth?”

    One extra star for good action and some stylish camera work/hidden cuts. Also a guy called Rake killing someone with a rake (well two guys actually, one with the handle and one with the rake head) is a little too on the nose for me.

  • My Year with Helen

    My Year with Helen

    ★★

    Seeing as of writing this I am one of only 40-odd people to have logged this film on here, and it seems from the scores I have given it the lowest score currently of any reviews it seems I should justify my score with some written words.

    Gaylene Preston's documentary 'My Year with Helen' is a perfectly fine documentary, covering the approximate year of Helen Clark's bid to become the Secretary-General (SG) of the United Nations. The simple point of…

    Terminator 2: Judgment Day

    ★★★★½

    (In 3D - 2017 Re-Release)

  • White House Down

    White House Down

    ★★

    In which... is it supposed to be serious... funny... what is it... there is acts of terrorism and violence... but then it's undercut by a shift in tone so massive I don't know what to think... it's beyond wry one liners... I don't know what I just watched...

  • Side by Side

    Side by Side

    ★★★★

    In which... if you have any opinion on film vs digital then you should watch this documentary... so well put together....

  • Carrie

    Carrie

    ★★★½

    In which... a horror classic that holds up so well I don't exactly understand the need to have remade it recently...

  • What We Do in the Shadows

    What We Do in the Shadows

    ★★★★

    In which... one of the best mockumentaries I've seen in years... thin on a proper plot and much resolve... but those jokes land and the characters are so well created I don't care one bit...

  • Loose Cannons

    Loose Cannons

    ★½

    In which... what did I just watch.... I feel this is something both actors probably would want wiped off their CV's....

  • The Addams Family

    The Addams Family

    ★★★

    In which... I just rewatched probably one of the better of the 90's tv-to-film revivals... pitch perfect cast let down by a story that would have made an average episode of the tv series it came from... still like it plenty though...

  • Psycho

    Psycho

    ★★★

    In which... it's a classic on so many levels and for so many reasons... but I've never ever enjoyed the way it ends... I feel like I'm being lectured in a class on what happened...
