Jurassic World (2015)

SPOILER ALERT!

Now, there’s a barrage of stupid, stupid shit in Jurassic World. Stuff that makes the script a laughing stock. Have you seen the guy in charge of the Park’s – sorry – World’s biggest, meanest dinosaur cage? 230 more words

Not Fade Away (2012)

I love The Sopranos and James Gandolfini is one of my favourite actors of all time. Considering that’s how I came at Not Fade Away I’m surprised at how much I enjoyed a lot of it. 132 more words

Empire of Passion (1978)

My first Nagisa Oshima movie! Not quite as hardcore as his reputation led me to expect (I’m sure I’ll get to that stuff soon enough) but Empire of Passion is as sexually charged as it is chilling. 72 more words
