Film Review: Inside Llewyn Davis (2013)

by

This is truly virtuoso, expertly crafted film making, the only problem is that it’s just a little soulless, and just a little soullessness is a fairly big problem if it stops you caring about the characters. The Brothers, as usual, are more interested in the world they’re creating – and it’s impeccably done – but they forget to make us care about the people that populate it. Offering little resolution does little for them either.

Film Review: R.I.P.D (2013)

R.I.P.D desperately strains to get laughs where it can and they only really come from Roy and Nick’s avatars, a Victoria’s Secret model and a short, elderly Chinese man respectively. But even then, the joke is milked way too much and by the end the audience is so unbelievably sick of it.
