Game of Thrones: Season 2

Watching after reading makes the potential changes in fate that much more interesting.

Pitch Perfect

The romance is as usual ridiculous but the comedy, the music and the competition are exceptional.

Trouble with the Curve

First 1/3 of the movie: A for excellent acting, chemistry and script-writing. Rest of the movie: C+ for obviousness.

Continuum: Season 1

Despite the obvious ending to this season, a welcome addition to the clever and intelligent sci-fi pantheon.

Torchwood: Season 4

Since when did this become a police drama instead of a sci-fi show?

A Royal Affair

An excellent example of how freedom of the press can bite you in the butt. (Original title: En Kongelig Affære)

Torchwood: Season 3

Those who warned me really meant it. Be very, very careful watching this season.

Killing Them Softly

Gangsters-with-regular-lives, in the same vein as the-hooker-with-a-heart-of-gold.

Life of Pi

Digital Dharma

As a librarian, I can't help but love this documentary.

Torchwood: Season 1

Shoot, that packs a punch at the end. Literally, figuratively, spiritually.


I don't like repetition. I especially don't like it when films like this are all I've seen during my AAFF pre-screening.

Cat on a Hot Tin Roof

It's somehow harder to think of Newman as a pretty boy trying to be serious than it is to think of Depp or DiCaprio that way.
