Man Of Steel. A frustrating experience. While not without problems, Zack Snyder’s adaptation of the Superman mythos makes for a solid grounding for a new series if nothing else. Ethically all over the shop, with a moral backbone that contradicts the base elements of what makes the character great, it’ll be interesting to see how Snyder approaches the repercussions of the events of this film in his upcoming follow-up, due in 18-months time.

Only God Forgives. An impressive theatrical experience, albeit one that might not lend well to repeated viewings. Refn and Gosling’s Drive follow-up made for a refreshing antipode to the very specific stylings of the earlier film, and was conflictingly received by both audiences and critics alike. Check out our full review here

The Lone Ranger. The most unfairly maligned film of the Summer? Possibly. Many had it in for Gore Verbinski’s film before it even reached theatres, but it was heaps of fun. Check out our full review here
