Soderbergh’s swan song Side Effects is a superb parting gift to us, if it is his last film.
As much as I loved Bonnie in Seven Psychopaths, there were other things I liked about McDonagh’s critically acclaimed hit. Cute dogs are always a welcome addition, though!
Is it too early to declare Iron Man 3 not just my favourite film of 2013, but also my new favourite Christmas film? Screw it – it’s both.
With an indie trailer and a promising soundtrack, I was bound to leave Silver Linings Playbook on a high. Jennifer Lawrence’s brilliance only added to this high.
Bond is back in Skyfall and it’s just as brilliant as everyone says it is.
There’s no doubt about it: Argo is one of the best films of 2012.
@ShrewsburyFS kindly invited me to review Le Havre at one of their fortnightly showings. I was not disappointed, as this Finnish feel-good comedy is perfect for a Friday evening.
Next in my incredibly belated Fan of the Month posts is Paul Thomas-Anderson’s There Will Be Blood: Slick Nick from Pop Peeling’s excellent recommendation.

Advertised as a testosterone-filled “boys” film; Lawless was the biggest surprise of 2012.
