    The Last Detail

    ★★★★

    Hal Ashby's breezy direction conceals a savage dig at toxic, directionless masculinity in the US armed forces of the Vietnam era. Jack Nicholson's angry young man feels the need to toughen up Randy Quaid's troubled greenhorn before his stint in the brig by teaching him to drink, fight and fuck like what real men do; while we're left to imagine what the result might be for Quaid's character, it's pretty clear that Nicholson's grew up to be A Few Good Men's Col. Nathan R Jessup.

    ★★★

    My fatal flaw is that I am incapable of awarding any Bond film fewer than three stars, regardless of how terrible it is

    Oblivion

    ★★★

    If you're the kind of person who liked Moon but a) needed every single piece of information explained to you at length and b) didn't think it had enough explosions or Tom Cruise in it, then Oblivion is for you.

  • Man of Steel

    Man of Steel

    ★★

    Like Krypton itself, Man Of Steel collapses under the weight of its own excesses, its hollow core the cause of its doom. It's beyond saving.

    That said, fat Laurence Fishburne outjogging a collapsing skyscraper is proper lolz.
