'71 (2014)

It was a busy Saturday afternoon at work when my friend suddenly decided I was a suitable back-up plan for her evening. I was spared an evening of bowling failures (spared... geddit?) thanks to her raging hormones. We'd seen the trailer for '71 when we went to see TheRiot Club although our reactions to it were pretty different. Whilst I'd seen a historically and aesthetically interesting thriller, she saw an opportunity to stare at Jack O'Donnell for nearly 2 hours. Never mind, eh? I can think of worse reasons to sit in a dark room on a Saturday night. Plus, she's been threatening to drag me to endless Zac Efron films for the last few years so I'm just too grateful when our interests overlap to really care why.

The Riot Club (2014)

No matter how much I loved An Education, I have to be honest, I never wanted to see The Riot Club. Unfortunately, a friend of mine was desperate to see it because “she loves posh boys”. As the only alternative film I had in my arsenal was the new and most likely disappointing Woody Allen film, I couldn't change her mind. Still, considering Douglas Booth has a fucking beautiful jawline (who's with me, ladies?) I was pretty sure I could work with it. Besides, who doesn't enjoy a bit of social commentary on a Wednesday afternoon?
