L.A. Confidential

A product of one of my occasional whims to watch something on Netflix that has a 7.0-or-higher IMDB score (if only to stem the incessant flow of shite), and I realised I’d never seen...

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo 0

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

I’ve seen this a few times before (incl. the Swedish original, and reading the books), but rewatched cos we were on a boat sitting around in a harbour and there was jeff-all else to...

Joker 0

Joker

4 goes to finish this (interrupted by couch-snoozin), which is no way to give a film an objective go at being received well, is it? For starters, I’m not someone who generally gives a...

Georgetown 0

Georgetown

An interesting story behind this one, and I thought that Chrisophe Waltz starring and directing would make for quite the package – however the outcome in this case was a fairly slow and wandering...

The Jesus Rolls 0

The Jesus Rolls

The Jesus Bombs, rather.  So I’ve been anticipating this character spinoff from The Big Lebowski for AGES now, and Liz being out one night provided the perfect opportunity – and, casting the film’s 4.3...
