    After 'Dr No' this James Bond film kicks off without any explaining needed and what a start we have.
    The theme itself has no singer involved but again we are left with a piece of iconic tune that is very catchy.
    Spectre and our famous white pussy cat is introduced and they are pissed thanks to Bond killing Dr.No.

  • Point Blank 1967

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2014

    Lee Marvin was one hard ass MOFO at the time and if you decided to kill him whatever the reason was, make sure you do it right.
    Here they tried to do just that and faced the consequences throughout the movie.
    Lee's expressions in movies are so hard to tell when he is either mad or happy so playing this role was perfect for him.
    John Boorman's style is perfect and the sound editing is very impressive.
    This movie reminded…

    "I AM GROOT"
    Let me explain.....
    Marvel had balls of steel to try something different with new characters and a new story throwing in a mix of comedy.
    You know what!
    Everything works so well and now Marvel have another ball in the court.
    Are we going to have a trilogy of every famous character like they did for Iron Man, Captain America etc. I would love to see Rocket Raccoon's story fighting good and evil with Groot.
    The humor…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2014 2

    How I would love to grab a Deloren time machine load it up with a copy of this film on old cine film. Go back to 1970 and grab Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter and than place them in a cinema and play this film. I would be filming their faces throughout because I am pretty sure they will think apes do talk in the future.
    Yes the story is a bit weak but this is a continuation…

  • Deep Red 1975

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Jul, 2014 3

    Put Dario and Da Vinci together and you have both of the worlds greatest people that can create the best art ever.
    Thinking over the next day I absolutely loved it.
    This film was a piece of art with its stylish direction and blown out full colour especially scenes that involved red.
    Dario has a way of creating horrific deaths on screen and in this are plenty of examples.
    You can see how Dario may have taken some scenes from…

    The Good,the bad,the guns,the violence,the direction,the desert,the story,the name on the gravestone,the standoff,the much loved characters,the soundtrack,the man with no name and the ugly.

    This personally is Clint Eastwood's best movie for me.
    Each actor owns this film as they all shine so well.
    Sergio Leone really knew where to place his cameras for each superb scene. Especially the fantastic stand off between all 3 at the very end.
    Everything comes together with a great story and how Blondie and…

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 04 Jul, 2014 2

    I wish this hotel exists as I would take a holiday to stay just for that!
    Wes Anderson really works on his movies to make them as perfect and 100% how he wants to show his audiences.
    When you read a book, you create an imagination of how the characters look like and their surroundings. Here we are shown Wes Anderson's story and brought into how his imagination is shown on screen.
    Every direction shot is perfect with fantastic sets…

    I read when Flea from Red Hot Chilli Peppers is on tour he carries a empty plastic bottle around just in case he needs to pee.
    Breaking into the wrong house and having no bottle at the time he whizzes all over the Dudes carpet....whoops!
    My second favourite Coen's movie and every time I watch this one it gets better. I do think you appreciate this more after watching it a few times.
    The entire cast is superb and I…

  • The Breakfast Club 1985

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 May, 2014 5

    You can't judge a book by it's cover!
    That motto gets used a lot and this film is a perfect example of how a group of teenagers are different in their ways but turn out to be great friends by the end.
    This is a great feel-good movie which will make you laugh throughout and might bring back some old school memories (maybe).
    John Hughes was a god making these pure-teenage-feel good films and this is a perfect example.

    If…

    The car!
    The Jacket!
    The Direction!
    The Soundtrack!
    The Violence!
    Ryan Gosling!
    Bryan Cranston!
    Ron Perl-man
    The 70's Feel and look!
    The love chemistry!

    Everything about this film is cool (see above for examples).
    Some people don't rate this as a high time classic but I beg to differ.
    Bullet might have been the same when first re-leased in the 60's but from time going on, it became classed as a classic.
    Years and years on Drive will head down that same path, in fact it already is!.
