2014 Round-Up: The Good, the Bad….

Happy 2015 folks!

Small absence from this blog but I have been working my butt off in my normo working life and haven’t had much chance for blogging, but as Jack Torrence would say “Heeeere’s STACEY” (in a less maniacal “I’m going to chop you into little pieces” way).

And here’s my check-ins from 2014 to show that although I haven’t been blogging, I have been watching. This is inclusive of films me and my better half have been watching but exclusive of films I’ve watched on my own.

Highlights:

X-Men Days of Future Past: In particular the Quicksilver scene, I know – yes I am that easy to please. First off I’m a huge American Horror Story fan and Evan Peters is a greatly talented bloke and secondly the VFX in this shot really show how far we’ve come since the tear inducing days of George Lucas’s “look what we can do now” massacring of A New Hope. If you haven’t seen the featurette of the scene, check this clip out.

Jay & Silent Bob’s Super Groovy Cartoon Movie: It might not be up there with masterpieces but as far as dick and fart features go it;s pretty great. The best thing for me though, being three rows from the front of the Q & A after the film with Kevin Smith and Jason Mewes. They said some pretty inspirational stuff and I came away from the Apollo full of wide eyed delight and ideas for the future. My teenage years owe a lot to Kevin Smith, I still remember the first time I saw Clerks and I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything like it since.

Most recently seen goes to Man on the Moon. I have had the Mighty Mouse song stuck in my head ever since and have been scouring the net for any available info or footage I can find of Andy Kaufman.

Binned: 

Magic Mike: One of the WORST films I have ever seen in my life. The plot is….well, not a plot really, I’m still trying to figure it how this even got made.

Hummingbird: The Stath will have to pull something pretty amazing out of the bag to get me to watch another one of his one word titular films. Bobbins.

After Earth: Meh. Haven’t cared less about characters in a film since the Bourne Travesty Legacy.
