|100 T10||Persona (1966) - Mar 27, 2011
"Exquisitely shot and featuring a terrifically raw performance by Bibi Andersson, this is Bergman's most concise and piercing examination of people teetering on the psychological brink. One of the most fascinating and engrossing films I've seen. "
|50 T3||The Thin Red Line (1998) - Jan 06, 2016
""Okay boys, we have to take that bunker! Now it's not gonna be easy, but rest assured - oh look, a turtle". "
|20 T1||Deadpool (2016) - Feb 17, 2016
"An R rating does nothing to change the fact that at its heart this is just another shitty superhero origins movie with the same tropes and sensibilities as any other superhero movie. Reynolds is as annoying as he usually is, and the whole thing isn't nearly as subversive or smart as it's trying to be. Nothing to see here folks. "
|10 T1||The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012) - Feb 10, 2014
"The most annoying character in the Lord of The Rings trilogy was the stupid dwarf. This film is full of stupid dwarves."
|0 T1||Warrior (2011) - Dec 31, 2011
"Bad Rocky knock-off with characterisations straight out of CSI Miami. By the end it's unintentionally hilarious in its hysterical determination to grip you by any means possible which here, because of the writers' complete lack of imagination, means we have a series of cliches from start to finish topped off with a laughable finale. Warrior makes all the Rocky films (including the really daft one set in Russia) seem like masterpieces of gritty realism and understatement."
|0 T1||Forrest Gump (1994) - Sep 03, 2015
"Fuck Forrest Gump, and everything it stands for. And if you stop to think about what it does stand for you may start to realise just how utterly noxious this film really is."
|40 T2||Inside Out (2015) - Jan 15, 2016
"Here's what really happened: Riley's parents were notorious drug dealers back in Minnesota but the Feds were closing in on them, so they sold all their furniture, skipped town and headed off to San Francisco to set up a meth lab. Figuring all the upheaval would make the obnoxiously upbeat Riley jittery they decided to switch her from Lithium to Valium, but the meds got mixed up in the move and they ended up giving her the DMT they had stashed in the glovebox for a special occasion. Poor Riley. "
|85 T9||I Stand Alone (1998) - Feb 09, 2016
"With I Stand Alone, Gaspar Noe sets up a world that's utterly seedy and bleak, then introduces a character who leads such a grim and humourless existence that it can't fail to send the viewer into a deep funk. And then we're forced to see everything through the eyes of a protagonist that despises the whole human race. Now that's a scary position to be in, and makes this one of the more disturbing films around."
|100 T10||There Will Be Blood (2007) - Sep 17, 2016
"There's so much to admire about this film: The striking cinematography and deftly handled editing, the weirdly discordant score, the utterly assured direction and first-rate camerawork, and of course Daniel Day-Lewis's towering performance. This is classic, powerfully cinematic storytelling at it's finest, and I'm confident it will still be watched and analysed a hundred years from now."
|0 T1||About Time (2013) - Mar 09, 2014
"Think of Groundhog Day. Now take away all the cleverness and originality, replace Bill Murray with someone with no personality, cobble together a string of embarrassingly unfunny scenes and lots of vomit-inducing sentimentality and you'll end up with this abortion. "
