October's What I Watched

Supersonic (4/5)
An in-depth look at the life and music of Manchester-based rock band, Oasis.
Liam, Noel, Peggie and Paul Gallagher, Paul Arthurs, Mark Coyle.

Jody and I are huge Oasis fans so when we found out a film detailing their rise to fame was in the works we were over the moon. It's full of unseen footage and if you are a die hard fan you will love it. It was hilarious and trust me when I say none of the carnage surrounding Oasis was sugar coated in the slightest.

Wolf Creek (TV Series) (5/5)
Eve, a 19-year-old American tourist is targeted by crazed serial killer Mick Taylor. She survives his attack and embarks on a mission of revenge.
John Jarratt, Lucy Fry, Dustin Clare

I haven't seen the movie version of this but you don't have to, all you have to know is that there's a psycho who drives around the Aussie bush looking for people to kill and one of his targets survives and starts hunting him. My Auntie recommended it and I wasn't expecting much but it's really good and really gory. Only 6 episodes so it's a quick watch.

Victor Frankenstein (2.5/5)
Told from Igor's perspective, we see the troubled young assistant's dark origins, his redemptive friendship with the young medical student Viktor Von Frankenstein, and become eyewitnesses to the emergence of how Frankenstein became the man - and the legend - we know today.
Daniel Radcliffe, James McAvoy, Jessica Brown Findlay

This film started out strong - Daniel Radcliffe was endearing as the circus freak turned lab assistant and McAvoy plays manic spectacularly well (I think he will be incredible in his new movie Split) - but it really lost me towards the end. Meh.

Laggies/Say When (5/5)
In the throes of a quarter-life crisis, Megan panics when her boyfriend proposes, then, taking an opportunity to escape for a week, hides out in the home of her new friend, 16-year-old Annika, who lives with her world-weary single dad.
Keira Knightley, Sam Rockwell, Chloe Grace Moretz

I stuck this on when Jodes went out and I'm glad I did. Keira Knightley isn't usually my cup of tea but I loved her in this and I could relate to how her character has absolutely no idea what she's doing with her life. Sam Rockwell's dry sense of humour is right up my street aswell.

Black Mirror Season One (5/5)
A television anthology series that shows the darkside of life and technology
Created by Charlie Brooker

I'd seen quite a lot of fanfare over Black Mirror on Twitter so I decided to give it a watch. It's fucked up and weird but I could.not.look.away. Episode One is mad, Epside two is claustrophobic and Episode three is just plain sad. Amazing.

Sons of Anarchy Seasons Four and Five (5/5)
A man in his early 30s struggles to find a balance in his life between being a new dad and his involvement in a motorcycle club.
Charlie Hunnam, Katey Sagal, Maggie Siff, Ron Perlman.

Seasons one to three bored me a little bit but Jody really liked it so I persevered and I'm so glad I did as in season four shit gets real. Every episode is action packed and despite having very unlikable main character's, you can't stop watching. I can see why everyone's been telling me to watch it for so long now.

And that's everything I've watched this month! Basically a lot of tv shows rather than films. Any recommendations for next month?
