Gone Girl (USA, 2014)

Directed by: David Fincher. This has been a Fincher-heavy year, almost by accident. I wouldn’t even say that I’m particularly a big Fincher fan, but I can think of worse filmmakers to brush up on. 740 more words

Mad Max: Fury Road is visually stunning, with excitement pumped to the max (excuse the pun) that leaves you breathless.

'Pitch Perfect 2'

Essentially the same film as its prequel!

Same scenarios (new girl has something different to offer, the Bellas have a problem regarding stage presentation, they’re underdogs for the championship), same outcomes (what else?). 23 more words

Noir Gets Victorian

One of the interesting things about the 1001 movies list is that, unless you are up on your old cinema and theater, you don’t know what to expect with a lot of films.   424 more words
