  • 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 and the Ugly 1966

    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

    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…

  • The Big Lebowski 1998

    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.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • Drive 2011

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 12 May, 2014 9

    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!.

    Sure Kazakstan can hear me laughing right now.

    Seen this a few times now and it still makes me laugh.
    Sacha plays this character down to a tee and to make a film I really didn't think it would work. He used to have this character on the Ali G show and seeing him trick people was hilarious.
    On one of the shows Ali G goes to a house to be shown how to respect people at a dinner…

  • Fruitvale Station 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Apr, 2014

    Thank god for camera phones these days!

    Being in the UK the news came over here very thin so I didn't know much about this.
    Waking up the next day still has me thinking of the poor family he left behind, especially his mum and daughter.
    The film is beautifully directed and handled very well where we are shown what Oscar's life was like before the tragedy happens.
    B Jordan who played Oscar reminded me of a young Denzel as…

  • Porky's 1982

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 06 Apr, 2014

    American Pie for the late 90's and in the early 80's we had Porky's . In them days the censorship was pretty bad and I am pretty certain this was hard to watch in those early days.
    The comedy is spot on and if you don't laugh at least once, you have no sense of humour.
    I love this up to to this day and most of the jokes still work especially the shower scene.
    I guarantee if you haven't…

    "Where does he get those wonderful toys"
    Yes I would like to know too!
    20 years on (times flies like a Bat) and this still holds it own.
    Tim Burton must of been jumping in the air, clicking his feet, when he got the chance to direct our DC hero on screen his way.
    The sets, cast, action, costumes are perfect and everything looks like a Dark live action comic book.
    Keaton plays a great Bruce Wayne and I don't…

  • Beetlejuice 1988

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Mar, 2014 3

    Beetlejuice comes close to Tim Burton's best in my opinion.
    Everything is zany and has a great touch of humour to it and Michael Keaton steals the show as the ghost with the most.
    Tim Burton has a way with directing and this film is a perfect sample of learning his technique.
    The effects still stand out for its time and the jokes work perfectly.
    Soon as Beetlejuice appears you get to love this crazy character and if that didn't…
