Bio:
Nolanite at large and I love a good old Kermodian rant by the man himself! I watch a lot of films on a whim. I'm fully aware of the fact Zack Snyder is style over substance, but I have faith in this man's future. Mock and ridicule as you see fit, I'm on his side. And about Ben Affleck, yeah I would've chosen Karl Urban over him, but what can you do? I have faith in him. When the film industry is...ashes, you have my permission to destroy any evidence providing the existence of 'Paranormal Activity'.

The Wolf of Wall Street
4 months ago via Flixster

Nothing like a good old fashioned retelling of financial fraud, hedonism, addiction and sheer debauchery on top of that comprising high calibre performances by both Leonardo DiCaprio and Jonah Hill, with a small dose of Matthew McConaughey whose minor role makes it all worthwhile. The film became infamous stateside due to controversy with the film being allegedly accountable for condoning/glamourising pugnacious behaviour and also for it's drug material. The overall tone of the film does not exactly promote the lifestyle of these characters who are so cartoonish they verge on being caricatures. 'The Wolf of Wall Street' is an intense film experience and it's always a delight to watch the film's leading ex-conman, Jordon Belfort (DiCaprio)'s depraved and repulsive antics, DiCaprio's screen presence is strong and his ability to carry the weight of the film on his shoulders shines through. Donnie Azoff (Jonah Hill) portrays Belfort's sidekick (if you will) gives justice to the supporting role. It's not long until Belfort's circle of greed expands among itself, with the FBI latching onto his master scheme with Belfort's contribution, it's long until the game is up which marks his demise of a lifestyle destined to result in jeopardy. Now, story wise, it's somewhat lacking, but if you can manage to get past that and relish some of the amazing set pieces and rowdy characters, the three hour run time will fly by. It's a film that's either loved or hated, rarely in-between. You'll either laugh, shake your head or frown upon the excessive unruly content, perhaps maybe all three at the same time! It's an unrelenting ride of hilarity and pure chaos from beginning to end. Scorsese on near top form, it's one you'll treasure for years to come.

The Hangover Part III
9 months ago via Flixster

If you stuck overkill in the oven, roasted it, effortlessly glazed it in dollar notes. 'The Hangover Part III' is what you'd get. Almost two hours of nothing happening, barely even a joke insight. Woeful. Given the writers are slumming it big time, Zack Galifianakis acting like an obnoxious child, Bradley Cooper and Ed Helms screaming and being attacked by at a bunch of veracious cocaine-consuming chickens is hilarious is it not?

The World's End

Without a single doubt 'The World's End' is the weakest of the Cornetto trilogy. Despite how most of central jokes are clinging onto what was funny in the previous instalments, it still has endearing qualities but Simon Pegg resorting to scene chewing every time he appears on-screen is a frugal attempt to compensate for having great gags, alas are almost absent from the film. Much unlike 'Shaun of the Dead' and 'Hot Fuzz' it's merely 100 minutes of character acting. With not much to offer, this affair means an unfortunately disappointing end to what could've been a perfect trilogy.

Alan Partridge
9 months ago via Flixster

It's a very small scale film but that doesn't mean 'Alan Partridge: Alpha Papa' doesn't go to large heights. The film does encapsulate the TV feel, which is will pose as a novelty to long-time fans of the original series. With all the cringe-inducing bad puns and pedantic one-liners, Partridge is back with a bang. Certainly an ineffable effort.

Lawless
Lawless (2012)

From Guy Pearce's scene chewing on-screen presence to mumbling hardnut Tom Hardy. 'Lawless' is a highly enjoyable gangster flick. It combats two siblings' struggle against an influx of brutes. With very enjoyable performances and the perfect blend of sometimes hammy acting makes this a recipe of sheer delight.
