  • Contact 1997

    ★★★★ Rewatched 23 Nov, 2014

    I do love me some good sci-fi, and Contact continues to grow on me as a marvellous entry in the genre. Dr Ellie Arroway lifelong search for answers of whether we're alone in the universe or not whilst dealing with loneliness in her life is played with great effect by Jodie Foster, her character drives the film to the emphatic finale where elements of Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey are visually apparent. Zemeckis' follow up to the acclaimed Forrest Gump comes close to being a masterpiece, but it's good enough for me.

  • Frozen 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 23 Nov, 2014

    For a film titled Frozen is sure managed to melt my heart.

  • Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 30 Jul, 2013 1

    No review needed. If you haven't seen Jaws, you're dead to me.

  • Rififi 1955

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 19 Nov, 2014 2

    François Truffaut called it the best noir ever made, and I'm not going to argue with the godfather of the French nouvelle vague era, to do so would be blasphemous, also he's right, Jules Dassin's Rififi is mesmerising from beginning to end.
