  • The Cloverfield Paradox

    The Cloverfield Paradox

    ★★

    In a parallel universe I guess they *could* have gravity in space…?

  • Twin Peaks: The Missing Pieces

    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

    Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls

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

  • Jurassic Park

    Jurassic Park

    ★★★★★

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

  • Free Fire

    Free Fire

    ★★★★½

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

  • Ghostbusters

    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

    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.
