    A Fish Called Wanda 1988

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 29 Jun, 2016

    Golden oldie! I love Cleese so much, but everyone on the main cast is fantastic in this one, especially Kline and his Otto.

    I recently read Cleese's autobiography and would highly recommend it to anyone who's into those kind of biographies (also all of Stephen Fry's). Unfortunately the tickets were all sold out when Cleese passed through my town this year with his hilariously named show "Last Chance to See Me Before I Die", would have loved to see that.

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

    Star Wars: The Force Awakens 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2015 2

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    I can definitely see why a lot of people have drawn similarities between this and A New Hope. I would even say this is a reimagined version of A New Hope and Empire combined. And it's pretty fun.

    I like most of the new characters. The new baddie is pretty bad ass, (as long as he keeps his mask on, because the turtleneck and perm isn't doing him any favours). The new droid is pretty cool too.

    I like how…
