  • Kill Bill: Vol. 2

    Kill Bill: Vol. 2


    Not only does Kill Bill: Vol. 2 totally solidify my crush on Uma Thurman and all her badassery, it's quite entertaining as well.

  • Kill Bill: Vol. 1

    Kill Bill: Vol. 1


    See, I never quite got the appeal of Uma Thurman.

    I totally get it now.

  • Hoop Dreams

    Hoop Dreams


    One of the most riveting documentaries I've ever had the pleasure of seeing: so much more than a mere sports documentary, Hoop Dreams is an unforgettable story about American life (and all the challenges it presents).

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead


    Its first half an hour was promisingly solid, but it really went nowhere from there, and so finishing this ultimately rather generic zombie film became something of a struggle.

  • Into the Wild

    Into the Wild


    Into the Wild is a massive disappointment, despite the gorgeous cinematography and soundtrack: its ostentatious narration and the utter douchiness of its main protagonist make it far easier to loathe than love this endless exercise in pretentiousness.

  • 10 Things I Hate About You

    10 Things I Hate About You


    Allison Janney single-handedly makes me love 10 Things I hate about you, all the rest is just very enjoyable icing on the cake.

  • Fargo



    Frances McDormand is just impossibly endearing in the subtly beautiful and brilliantly quirky Fargo.

  • Searching for Sugar Man

    Searching for Sugar Man


    Searching for Sugar Man is a perfect tribute to Rodriguez and his absolutely brilliant music. For me, this long overdue introduction to (part of) the man's fabulous body of work is both humbling and inspirational.

  • Flakes



    Wafer-thin plot aside, this film loses all appeal after its first, at times amusing, half an hour or so, making the remaining hour an extremely grating experience.

  • Hoodwinked!



    Entertainingly original take on the familiar tale, with a special mention for the exceptionally strong cast working their magic.

  • The Grey

    The Grey


    Liam Neeson more badass and more vulnerable than ever before in this chilling and dramatic adventure that had me on the edge of my seat throughout.

  • Sherlock Holmes

    Sherlock Holmes


    If only there had been considerably more of the rather wonderful Holmes/Watson banter, then I would have definitely enjoyed this action-driven film an awful lot more.
