  • A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Jan, 2015

    "Whatever you do, don't fall asleep."

    What can I say? This is one of the ultimate horror classics.

  • Force Majeure 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Jan, 2015

    Force Majeure is a darkly funny look on a family skiing holiday gone terribly wrong after a cowardly action by Tomas, the dad. He then has to deal with the repercussions as it leads to a crisis on a personal and family level. Excellent work from the cast and writer and director Ruben Östlund. I haven't seen any of his other films yet but he certainly seems like a director worth keeping an eye on.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 08 Jan, 2015

    What a wonderful rewatch. I always enjoyed the story, which is fast-paced and constantly amusing, but this time I was more invested in the characters and found the ending more moving than I did the first time around. I like Wes Anderson's visual style and Robert Yeoman's camerawork very much in this one, and the dialogue is fantastic. Ralph Fiennes is great, and I think M. Gustave is his finest role in years. This is my favorite Wes Anderson film so far. Easily.

  • The Good, the Bad and the Ugly 1966

    A classic. One of the greatest westerns of all time. One of the coolest films ever made.

    The last thirty minutes are just out of this world...
