  • The Shawshank Redemption 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 Jul, 2014

    Not the best movie of all time. No sir.

    But by God, it's one hell of a movie. Americana at it's definitive best; and only like Stephen King can pen it, and Darabont can direct it. Crafted. Nothing less.

  • Diner 1982

    ★★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2014

    The single best Paul Reiser film I have ever seen.

    also

    The only good Steve Gutenberg film I have every seen.

  • Rachel Getting Married 2008

    ★★★★★ Added 4

    This film was the decades biggest surprise for me. Just proves that the smallest of films can do the biggest of impacts. And much of it is thanks to Anne Hathaway, who delivers the role of a lifetime.

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Jun, 2014

    His locations are stunning, his symmetry intriguing. His cameos are great fun, his humour great. The oddness of it all is fantastic. It's cartoonish quality. It's grainy feel. It's dated, yet undated settings.

    It feel like an amazing photograph, taken in a time before my own, with qualities lost for ever, but of magic fabric.

    Like looking at your parents wedding pictures, faded and sepia-tainted by time. From sometime in the 70s.

    The only thing I would want from Anderson now was a more complex story. Not another mystery with child-like qualities.
