    ★★½

    Well, that was another ‘why not dull the senses with one more Stath’ time that did exactly what it supposed to do. Stath cracked some heads, there was a silly bad guy (James Franco are you kidding me with this?) and Winona Ryder tried to convince us that her eyes are even wider than they are.

    Tough as nails crime drama starring an excellent Viggo Mortensen. A lot of this borders (or passes) a questionable level of graphic violence and other nasty human behaviour, so it’s probably not for everyone but I thought it worked beautifully if you can call a film that in which all this is going on. Anyway, great film, great performances and I might never look at Armin Mueller-Stahl quite the same way.

    It's probably good David Fincher made Alien 3 if only to confirm the fact that he is human after all.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here. I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…
