I like films, but that's okay. Starting from scratch and only reviewing films as I watch them.

    Maybe a touch too long, but still great fun

    I mean, it’s John Wick 1/Home Alone with Bob Odenkirk. That will either sell you on the film, or make sure you never watch it. 

    As someone who has been burgled (twice!), maybe there’s a part of me that just liked the idea of someone getting some form of closure (even through violent means) after an event like that. 

    Anyway, perfectly fine b-movie with a good cast.

    A Serious Man

    ★★★★★

    Clouds aren’t shaped like animals and there is no face in your porridge. Signs are just coincidences that we try and attribute meaning to. 

    A Serious Man is about a patch of bad luck and the meaning we try and pull from the wreckage of a life. 

    It’ll never be talked about in the same way as Fargo or the Big Lebowski, but in many ways this is a real masterpiece. It’s a small film, beautifully shaped and realised, full of petty human moments.

    John Leguizamo's Latin History for Morons

    ★★½

    There’s a lot of good stuff in here, and at times it’s incredibly moving, but the use of racial stereotyping, homophobic caricature and some outright racism is very unpleasant and detracts from the good work he’s doing.
