Inside Llewyn Davis

Examines the cyclical nature of rejection in pursuit of a self perpetuated ideal. An unlikely place to strike gold but the Coens deliver a bittersweet gem, as you would expect.

The Wolf Of Wall Street

Scorcese does Goodfellas again, only with 'Mafia' replaced by 'Wall Street', and it's just as stunning this time round.

Moshi Monsters: The Movie

Technically I haven't seen enough of this film to merit inclusion here. Within the first minute I had decided that this was the kind of thing normally found for free at the bottom of a cereal box and so promptly slept through sizeable chunks of it.
However I felt obliged to post it in order to record Charlotte's response, a terse "Absolute rubbish". My little girl is growing up.

American Hustle

I may yet be proven wrong but it strikes me as the wrong time to be putting out a lightweight Scorcese pastiche. Shout out to the abundance of bad hair and exposed cleavage though.


A surprisingly entertaining generational yarn. A pictorial representation of the films many plot strands would surely yield the most beautiful knot.
Charlotte wasn't fussed, no talking animals.
