DamselsDAMSELS IN DISTRESS

Girl joins twee cult that are into preventing suicide, tap dancing and blue eyed boys. Then they chat a bit. Incredibly watchable.

7/10

HappyChristmasHAPPY CHRISTMAS

A film mainly about everything other than christmas. Retains the ‘Happy’ though, for the most part. Good chubby baby.

7/10

Inside OutINSIDE OUT

Pixar are best when being emotive and a film about feelings gives them plenty to play with. A fun feel bad movie.

9/10

leviathanLEVIATHAN

A funny, bleak and beautifully shot Russian satire based on the retelling of the book of Job. Very cold, very corrupt and very large amounts of vodka.

9/10

furyFURY

Intent of destroying any happiness Fury starts off brilliantly raw. Loses it’s way at the end when it becomes a sob story/look how many SS we can kill  with our limited ammo.

6/10

babadookTHE BABADOOK

A very grey and creepy Australian haunted house horror full with tension and scary child acting. Largely a film about grief.

8/10

 

Maps To the StarsMAPS TO THE STARS

A humorously weird attack on Hollywood that doesn’t really make sense but in a very watchable way.

6/10

BirdmanBIRDMAN (ZURICH FILM FESTIVAL)

A faux single-shot black comedy full of hateful people and their irritating opinions. Plenty of laughs and drumming while Michael Tweaton loses his mind.

9/10

beforeBEFORE I GO TO SLEEP

An intriguing thriller which seems intent on removing all tension as soon as anything builds. I’d quite like to go to sleep and forget it.
