Run Lola Run - This felt like a hyperactive and adrenalised music video expanded out to 80 minutes but I was hooked throughout.
Tears of the Black Tiger - Slightly bonkers and very bloody Thai homage / parody (?) to Westerns. The cinematography in this was gorgeous! Felt quite bad for the Black Tiger though, he really seemed to get dealt life’s short straw.
Goodbye Christopher Robin - I can see this being shown on BBC on Boxing day in the next couple of years time and I’ll probably still get a swept up by Will Tilston’s performace. The rest of the cast I could take or leave especially Domhnall Gleeson who was terribly wooden and the ageing make up looked utterly ridiculous on him.
Ip Man - Lots of exhilarating fight scenes but the story somewhat lets things down a bit. Donnie Yen gives a quietly cool performance though. Does anyone know if the sequences are worth giving a go?
Audition - A really nasty film and those final scenes are gonna linger with me for a long time. Fucking chilling.
Bubba Ho-Tep - Utter rubbish but I liked the idea of Elvis switching lives with an impersonator when fame became too much for him.
Child’s Play - Very goofy premise but a lot of fun nevertheless. Particularly liked Joe Renzetti’s score.
20th Century Women - Not sure what to make of this. I felt like the sort of movie that I would usually love but it left me kinda cold.
Inside Llewyn Davis - Oscar Issac was great in this and other than a memorable cameo from John Goodman, this was a largely forgettable Coen Bros flick.
The Alamo (2004) - Billy Bob Thornton’s dancing eyebrows and fiddle playing will haunt my dreams.
