    Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces

    ★★★½

    The only bit of unwatched Twin Peaks after finishing The Return. I guess I wasn't ready to let go just yet!

    All pretty non-essential viewing, except for maybe the extended Philip Jeffries stuff because it pads out his character a bit more, even if it poses more questions than it answers. More Bowie is never a bad thing, either!

    The additional scene in the back room of Hap's Diner also added to the absurdity of the Double R doppelganger.

    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

    My son asked to watch this because it's "the funniest movie ever." I am a terrible parent.

    ★★★★★

    I'm not sure why I had this marked as a 4.5 star film. It's a solid five.

    Fifteen minutes in: There's no way Wheatley's going to be able to pull this gag off for 90 minutes.

    Ghostbusters

    ★★★½

    It's no Ghostbusters but, thankfully, it's no Ghostbusters 2 either.

  • The Rules of the Game

    The Rules of the Game

    ★★★★½

    "I have no choice but to dismiss you. It breaks my heart, but I can't expose my guests to your firearms. It may be wrong of them, but they value their lives."

    With its fast-paced tracking shots and sharp wit, broken up by periods of farce, The Rules of the Game is as close as Jean Renoir gets to making a Wes Anderson movie.

  • The Lego Batman Movie

    ★★★★

    "I have aged phenomenally."

  • Le Jour se Lève

    Le Jour se Lève

    ★★★½

    "My spoons!"

  • Listen to Me Marlon

    Listen to Me Marlon

    ★★★★½

    "Listen to Me Marlon" offers scant new tangible information on Marlon Brando than could otherwise be gleaned from a Wikipedia page, but the delivery is thoroughly mesmerising. Ordered in a vague topic chronology without any information about the recording order, these self-taped musings offer a dream-like wander through the mind of one of Hollywood's greats.

  • The Good Dinosaur

    The Good Dinosaur

    ★★★½

    Slow West, but for kids.

  • Green Room

    Green Room

    ★★★★½

    My first film watch of 2017 is all about a punk band getting holed up in a Neo-Nazi entertainment venue and is in no way a metaphor for anything happening right now.

    ★★½

    Charlie Kaufman, writer and director of so many amazing films: Synedoche New York, Eternal Sunshine, Being John Malkovich, Adaptation, writes and directs an animated movie about an asshole guy who turns out to be an asshole. Oscar nominated for some reason.
