      The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies (6/10)


        The first installment was extremely slow, the second film was great, but not long into this third movie you have had enough of this long-drawn-out storyline. Let’s hope someone cuts this down to size to one 3 hour movie in the coming years to salvage this prelude to The Lord of The Rings for future generations…

      Upstream Color (5/10)


        Shane Caruth wrote, directed and acted in his debut movie Primer, which is quite an intriguing film. Upstream Color is his second movie, nine years later, which he again wrote, directed and stars in.

        The first hour or so the movie goes down various tracks whilst nothing is obvious, nothing is explained, and not a lot is clear as to what is going on and why. This initially makes for an interesting and somewhat suspenseful enigma: it keeps you trying to figure out how things connect and where this might lead.

      Cronos (4/10)


        I am not sure how I feel about this movie – Guillermo del Toro’s directorial debut and ‘Grand Prize’ Winner at Cannes 1993, about a magical device that can grant eternal life.

        It starts out fairly interesting and the first half sets out teh relavtn characters and builds a decent plotline, even if the movie is incredibly slow.
