  • Anything Else

    Anything Else

    ★★★½

    I couldn't look away from this. The script and one-liners were Woody Allen at his best, even if Anything Else descended into shouting matches a little too often.

    It was somewhat strange watching Jason Biggs working with a script like this and throwing around the type of vocabulary here - quite unlike the American Pie films. But his awkward character traits suited a Woody Allen film perfectly.

    Christina Ricci delivered a good performance too, albeit incredibly annoying and trigger-inducing for…

    Anthropoid

    ★★★½

    Gripping film about a heroic true story. I had previously seen another film about these events, The Man With The Iron Heart, and while that was alright, I prefer this depiction.

    The Trader

    ★★★

    22 minutes of putting your life in perspective.

    Take your pick:

    - The old lonely lady that just wanted a grater
    - The eyes of amazement of 2 kids rifling through random objects
    - The old man who just wanted to escape the village

    These people will pull at your heart strings. Potatoes as a currency is something I had only ever heard of from Stalin-era Russia. I didn't realise this was still very much a way of life in rural areas of Georgia.

    Great little documentary that could've easily been longer, albeit super depressing as it is.

  • The Dirt

    The Dirt

    ★★★★

    The Dirt Drinking Game: take a shot of Jack Daniels whenever you hear the words "dude", "man" or "chicks". Take a shot for each bare breast you see. Check yourself into rehab 1.5 hours later.

    I had been waiting to see this film for 12 years - ever since 17 year old me first read The Dirt. It doesn't disappoint. In fact, it was way more enjoyable and fun than I thought it would be. It's cringeworthy, cheesy as fuck…
