For Lovers Only

Inspiring arthouse pic from the Polish Brothers. Remarkably offhand et casual. A bit pretentious.

Guardians of the Galaxy

Light-hearted sci-fi. Deftly handled, with a tone you rarely see these days.

LAST FM: On heavy rotation

Currently playing at Chimp HQ:

Unplanned 8am Wetherspoons stop. Surprisingly good, with bottomless coffee.

Filmage: The Story of Descendents / All

Nostalgic doc that doesn't avoid the realities of being pop punk pioneers. @Descendents.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

Diminishing returns for those damn dirty apes, with none of the humanity of ROTPOTA.

RoboCop

Stylish, irony-free remake - lifeless and hampered mainly by the badass cult reputation of the source.

Trailer Park: Filmage - The Story of Descendents/All

The @Descendents documentary is finally out - an all-time CSF favourite band since they roared onto my music radar in the Santa Cruz skate film Street of Fire in 1987 ...though even that was after Milo got back from college.

Buy it now on iTunes (US) or direct from the film's website.

Interstellar

Convoluted, drawn out sci-fi, short on drama. A couple of decent moments, but thoroughly uneven.

Nightcrawler

Electrifying modern thriller. Great script and a breakout turn from Donnie Darko. He's going to be big.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Artful, considered entry from the Coen Brothers. Stylish, but essentially pretty un-engaging.

My first car c. The 90s. A 1970s Ford Falcon. It had 1m+ miles on the clock and the bonnet was worth more than the car. #TheBeast

The Signal

Slick, trippy indie sci-fi that asks a lot of questions, before tripping a bit too far.

Action or Drama?

Not sure which of these two films to watch this weekend? I recommend the English langauge version. Not a burning skyscraper or rad dad hero in sight.
