Rating History

The Spectacular Now
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

The Spectacular Now manages to take one of the oldest formulas in the book and produce something fresh and authentic. Dripping in adolescent emotions and feelings, it effortlessly portrays the naivety and fear felt by people coming of age, a reality far too often missing from its formulaic peers.

Gravity
Gravity (2013)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes

It would be easy to talk for hours about Gravity's immense quality or worse, conjure some subpar pun about space or its pulling factor. The fact is it is an amazing piece of cinema. Go see it.

The Way Way Back
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

The Way, Way Back feels like a film that you have seen a thousand times prior in one form or another yet, it somehow manages to feel fresh and remain extremely gripping throughout. Piecing together a story with its star studded cast, I would bet the vast majority of those who see it could relate in one way or another; The Way, Way Back's only shortcoming is that you leave feeling that all the pieces are not there.

Lovelace
Lovelace (2013)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Lovelace tells an often hard to watch story of a fascinating young persons life with great finesse and elegance. Unfortunately, even after the credits had began to role I felt like I had not learnt anything new about Linda Boreman (excellently portrayed by Seyfried amongst a sea of stars), the surface merely scuffed rather than scratched; it felt like I had not been told a story at all.

Elysium
Elysium (2013)
3 years ago via Rotten Tomatoes
½

Elysium like many of the blockbuster sci-fi's that have gone before it suffers from the same symptoms of underdeveloped, and under explored character backgrounds and the world(s) that they inhabit. That said, it is by far one of the better ones. Visually stunning and scarily believable, what Elysium lacks in understanding and reasoning, it more than makes up for in slaps to the face beautiful cinematography.
