  1. My 2016 film highlights

    My annual film highlights post, in which I highlight 20 films from all I saw during the previous year. Not all are without their flaws, but I'm very fond of all of them, flaws and all.

  2. Review of Zack Snyder’s Man of Steel

    I enjoyed Man of Steel. Now it's over I'll argue that it suffers from weak plotting, a dodgy script and a bland leading man, but I won't deny that I was transfixed from start to finish, and I say this as one not given over to drooling over spectacle. Sadly, while it has plenty of outstanding and brutal action, it also lacks a heart.

  3. Ridley Scott’s Robin Hood

    Ridley Scott's Robin Hood plays like Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins; telling us the back story of a noble vigilante we may not have known before leading up to a sequel-friendly ending. It doesn't have the character of Nolan's work, nor does it have the epic nature of Scott's own Gladiator, but what's here is a respectable, solid piece of work with just enough meat on the bone to satisfy.
