The Guest - felt like a Terminator/Suspiria hybrid. Bags of style and embraces all of it's cliches and influences without being annoying about it. I thought it was pretty refreshing 8/10

He's worked with Woody Allen before in Celebrity - only a minor role mind, but he's memorable in it.

He's always been up against stiff competition for the Oscars and like others I don't think he's...

Magic Magic (2013) - Quite refreshing horror, very Polanski-esque in places and Juno Temple is great in the lead. Weird ending. 7/10

Carrie (2013) - Lacking the style (and score!) of the original and Carrie's a lot more in control of her powers in this one which I think takes away some of the tragedy of the prom scene - it's more...

The Insider - Slick and tense but I think it loses something when the focus shifts from Russell Crowe's character in the final third. 7/10

I've only managed to sit through the whole thing once. I think I like individual scenes more than the film itself which is pretty exhausting. Laura Dern is amazing but it's probably my least...
