50 25% 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". "
2% Moulin Rouge! (2001) - Mar 04, 2014
"I can't think of any reason this films existence can be justified other than as some sort of torture device. Put it on repeat and leave your prisoner in front of it for half a day and you'll have your information."
65 43% Whiplash (2014) - Jan 06, 2015
"This could have been an absorbing portrait of the student-teacher dynamic, or maybe an intelligent rumination on the nature of creativity, or the abuse of power, but instead it heads off into 'Rocky' territory where merely wanting something badly enough and having a good work ethic guarantees results in the end - the most prevalent and tired theme in all of American mainstream films. Simmons is brilliant though."
2% 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 17% Son of Saul (2015) - Apr 08, 2016
"Great filmmaking ruined by an idiotic premise. A man in Auschwitz putting himself and everyone around him in mortal danger to find a rabbi in order to bury some random dead kid is beyond absurd. After a while I was willing Saul to do everyone a favour and just catch a bullet. You'd think he'd have more important things to worry about but no, Saul (or 'that daft twat' as I came to think of him) carries on with his nitwit plan to the bitter end. Such a waste. "
95 99% The Turin Horse (2011) - Oct 16, 2011
"What a beautiful, hypnotic film. The cinematography is breathtaking and the sound design is phenomenal. You may not have 'fun' watching this - the themes are bleak and the pacing is glacial, but if you open yourself to the experience it's one you'll not quickly forget."
30 12% American Sniper (2014) - Jan 08, 2015
"This felt like switching between Fox News and the Hallmark channel. Yes, it attempts to show the negative effects of war on soldiers, but only on American soldiers, and in an embarrassingly clunky way. The Iraqis have no voice in this film whatsoever - each one is portrayed as some sort of sneaky backstabbing savage; target practice for an ignorant hick and his buddies."
2% 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."
2% 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. "
10 5% 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."
