|53 T6||Last Flag Flying (2017) - Feb 18, 2018
"An anti-war film at one moment, a pæan to warriors (as opposed to governments) the next, this film left me slightly dazed and confused."
|37 T4||Bullets or Ballots (1936) - Feb 16, 2018
"New Deal-era politics cannot save an exciting plot turned into a dull script. Great value as a window into 1930s big-city life, though."
|52 T6||Burn After Reading (2008) - Feb 14, 2018
"An uneven tone and an overloaded plot frustrate what could have been a misanthropic masterpiece."
|62 T7||I, Daniel Blake (2016) - Feb 11, 2018
"Agit-Prop from Ken Loach that sentimentally dramatises the real struggle of ordinary people under an inhumane globalised neo-liberal capitalism. "
|26 T3||Hardcore Henry (2016) - Feb 07, 2018
"The conceit wears off eventually, leaving one with a video game."
|63 T8||Thank You for Your Service (2017) - Feb 07, 2018
"Good effort at a social-justice movie, but the ending seemed a bit rushed and cost it a three-star ranking."
|34 T4||The Ladykillers (2004) - Feb 04, 2018
"Why do the Coens hate humanity?"
|41 T5||The Good Catholic (2017) - Jan 31, 2018
"Not a bad attempt at dealing with a difficult topic, but the three clerics (and our red-headed temptress) are a bit simplistic as characters and in terms of their respective ages probably unrepresentative of how the drama would play out in today's church. "
|44 T5||Intolerable Cruelty (2003) - Jan 29, 2018
"Subversive screwball comedy about a couple of misanthropes. "
|33 T3||Find Me Guilty (2006) - Jan 26, 2018
"It goes on too long -- perhaps inflicting the trial on us? -- and the irony is a bit heavy-handed, but I enjoyed myself. You can also play a 'Spot the HBO Actors' drinking game while watching it."
