100 movies: Lars and the Real Girl

Lars and the Real Girl (28/11/12) A delusional young guy strikes up an unconventional relationship with a doll he finds on the Internet. Is it okay for me to call his film adorable? Because that’s exactly how I feel about this film. Maybe not in […]

Horrible Bosses (06/07/12) Three friends conspire to murder their awful bosses when they realize they are standing in the way of their happiness. This film was a lot funnier than I was expecting. One of the funniest straight up comedy films I’ve seen in a […]

100 movies: Bad Teacher

Every year I set myself a target, usually of about 100, of films to watch. These are new films. Not new, new films. But films that are new to me. Any time I’ve seen a new one, I post a bit of a brain dump […]
