    ★★

    Overblown indie bullshit romance, where a smug American and a horribly stereotypical arty neo-feminist French girl spend an evening together having 'deep' conversations about all sorts of things and generally trying to be profound in the way that those annoying pricks at university did. I genuinely think it says a lot about you if you thought this was deep, thought provoking stuff. It's an exercise in looking smart, deep and/or cool - both by the actors and by the audience…

    Watched for the second time in IMAX, this film is even more stunning than the first time around. Nolan's usage of IMAX is masterful. A second viewing also gave me more appreciation for the way the narrative was constructed, although this was counteracted by noticing just how many close ups there were, particularly in action sequences.

    ★★★★

    A very faithful animated version of the classic comic. Improves on the visual style of the original, removing the distinctly 80s vibe which permeated it while still retaining key stylistic elements. Not a new story to me, but a very enjoyable way of seeing it in a new way.
