Winter's Bone 8/10
A gritty depiction of Ozark poverty. Really grim. Wonderful performance from Jennifer Lawrence.
The Big Lebowski 5/10
Not sure what all the fuss is about. Love later Coens, the early ones, not so much. Big fan of Bridges and Goodman, so quite a disappointment.
High Fidelity 9/10
A superb adaption of the Nick Hornby novel. The whole cast is magic. Jack Black is sensational. Vinyl, great music, great screenplay, and even better performances.
About a Boy 9.5/10
Another brilliant adaption of a Nick Hornby novel. Same as High Fidelity in quality, but add even better acting from Nicolas Hoult in his debut. Both funny and heartbreaking, without any sense of maudlin.
