    The Ground We Won

    ★★★★½

    An incredibly accurate documentary that describes small town New Zealand. Equally fascinating and depressing.

  • Bolshoi Babylon

    Bolshoi Babylon

    ★★½

    An interesting topic that is not developed on within the documentary. There is a great documentary in here but we don't get a chance to see it. Maybe if it had been made a significant time after the incident or if the influence of Russian Politics was not implicit the dancers would have been more open with the film makers and then this would have been a better documentary. Alas, this is not the case and what we are left with is a very surface level documentary that only skims the surface of what could have been.

    ★★★★

    I havent seen the Matrix since I was around 12 at a time in which I couldnt really tell what the film was about aside from some kick ass action sequences. Rewatching it I was surprised how well the plot still works and it became clear the effect this film has had on other pieces of cinema since its release

    The Cabin in the Woods

    ★★★★

    So much fun, although it could have done with some greater twists. The old gods thing only made me think of Hellboy which wasn't something I really wanted to do...
