Inside Out
This is pretty much an instant classic in my book and the film that Pixar will be remembered for. They've hit on something so universal, and done it in such a smart and understandable way, that parents will be showing this to their children for the next 50 years.

Top 10 films of our lifetime #4: Zodiac
It's an amazing and under-appreciated film if you've 3 hours to spend on it. I essentially blackmailed my mother into watching it a few months ago, instead of her regular docu-crime shows, and afterwards she wouldn't shut up about it for days.
As much as the film seems to settle on Allen for The Zodiac, there is a fantastic and horrific scene near the end in the projectionist's basement that significantly muddies the waters.

Top 10 films of our lifetime #5: Scott Pilgrim Vs The World
When I saw it in the cinema I was blown away by it, it made me realise just how much of modern culture is ignored by cinema. It's always enjoyable but it definitely loses something on repeat viewings.

Happy birthday to us: The Shiznit is ten years old today
Happy Birthday Team Shiznit and congratulations, you proved Danny Graydon wrong, survived your previous employer (RIP Special Reserve) & managed to piss off Brian Cox and that kid from There Will Be Blood.
This is always the first place I come for film reviews because of how reliable you are. On top of that, I'll always remember the Jackass 3 preview & comments, which is hands down one of the funniest things I've ever read on the internet.

A Million Ways To Die In The West
Sounds like he hasn't quite reached "Adam Sandler" level yet, but he's getting there.
I'm taking a star off, just because I can't stand his smug, self-satisfied face.

Theatre review: Let The Right One In
They (cinema or show, I forget) tweeted me a few weeks ago trying to get me to buy a ticket (which is a bit weird but whatever) and I just thought it wasn't something suited to the theatre. It's not dialogue heavy, it's horror with fantastical elements and it's main cast are meant to be kids. When you take those elements out or downplay them, what's left?

Under The Skin
Im giving this review 5 stars.
As for the film, not even Naked Scarjo can get me to watch it. Stuff like this sticks with me.

Philip Seymour Hoffman (1967-2014)
This one is a real loss. I can't think of anyone who was so consistently outstanding, no matter what the role.

If 2014's Oscar-nominated movie posters told the truth
But Scarface itself is for douchebags?

Top 20 movies of 2013
I'll save you all from embarrassment, as I've seen none of these. It's been a strange year for films, plenty of "I wouldn't mind seeing that" but nothing must-see. I blame expensive cinemas and Lovefilm being crap.
