Mary and Max

As near to "perfection" as I could imagine.

(Edit) 15/03/2019

Even if you have a heart of stone, this will move you.

A simple tale, well told, and without giving anything away it will take you through most every emotion going.

I cannot rate this highly enough and as a bonus the Oscar-winning short Harvie Krumpet is included, which in and of itself is a delight.

Trust me, watch this film, you will love it.

Escape Plan II

You'll want to escape after watching this.

(Edit) 20/09/2018

I'll keep this simple, it's awful, avoid it.

If you enjoyed Escape Plan, you'll hate this.

50 Cent is like an Oak tree and in all the worst ways.

Dave Bautista phones in his "performance".

Did I mention avoiding this film?

I gave it a generous 2 as it's Sly.

Aftermath

I'm glad I took a chance and watched this.

(Edit) 19/11/2017

Not your run of the mill Arnie film by the stretch of anybody's imagination.

Very watchable, very believable, moving & poignant.

Shows what grief can do to otherwise good people.

Snowpiercer

A little known gem

(Edit) 04/02/2017

I originally read the comic/graphic novel and eventually tracked the film down for a watch yesterday.

First off, I'd recommend that you read/watch both as there are differences, that is not a criticism.

An inventive tale with a simple but strong narrative, an excellent cast with good performances all round, Harris in particular, although Tilda Swinton gets a special mention for the "ripeness" of her performance, her accent is worth the price of admission alone.

This film poses some interesting questions and will surely make you think whilst "entertaining" you.

Not always a comfortable watch, it will not be entirely what you expect with some twists along the way.

This film deserves a wider audience, find it and watch it.
