Review - Taken 2 (2012) - Take 2

Dude makes his teenage daughter run around a teeming metropolis hurling grenades while he stands around talking on his phone.
Model parent.

Too bad everything before and after isn't nearly as exciting.

Review - Kalpana (2012)

Fucking awful ninety minutes of horror-comedy
then out of nowhere a glimmer of hope of redemption
quickly extinguished by more awfulness

which is a shame, really, because there's an important moral buried underneath all that rubbish

Review - Moonrise Kingdom (2012)

Everybody seems to genuinely love it. I wasn't too impressed. Exactly the way it was with Fantastic Mr. Fox.

I'm trying to understand why I'm in such a miniscule minority on this thing.

It's not that I don't like Wes Anderson. Rushmore's my second favourite film of all time.

And it's not that I don't like kids. Kids are my second favourite age demographic of all time.

Also, I was a Cub for two years, then a Scout for three more.

And I hated it.
Okay, that must be it, then.

Edward Norton's pretty great, though. As is the meet-cute.

And I recognise that it would be somewhat ironic if I ended this with "cute", so I've avoided that.
