    Long Way Round 2004

    When I found out that my visiting in-laws had never seen this, I happily embarked on my fourth rewatch of this 10 episode documentary miniseries.

    I did so, because this might just be my favourite piece of television ever. Every time I finish it, I want to watch it from the beginning again straight after. In fact, that is exactly what I did after I watched it the first time round.

    I love the beautiful sense of adventure, I love…

    It's a great movie filled with raw emotion. However, I don't really follow PTA's train of thought here. The suposed theme of the the movie is Serendipity or Coincidence as can be glanced from the stories in the beginning.

    It's all over the place with the story, but it…

    Desperado 1995

    I loved this back in the day and it was a subject of many a school yard re-tellings (especially Tarantino's joke).

    Features Banderas right in his element, Salma Hayek is gorgeous as ever and this, for me, is probably the highlight of Rodriguez's career. The Spy Kids stuff is not for me and the Machete and Planet Terror stuff got a little too gimmicky for my taste. Sin City was kinda fun though. Desperado, however, is just the perfect blend…
