    ★★★★★ 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…

  • Batman 1989

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 26 Mar, 2014 4

    "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…

  • Angel Heart 1987

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 Mar, 2014 5

    This is one of them films where you appreciate more after seeing it a couple times.
    I love Alan Parker's direction with the dark shadows and moody feel. This film is a piece of art.
    Mickey Rourke is perfect to play this character and does a good job in doing so. In the late 80's he was a good looking/smooth man, so what on earth happened to you Mickey after 10 years or so.
    I have seen this plenty of…

  • Ghostbusters 1984

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 24 Feb, 2014

    I was 9 years old sitting in the cinema hearing this movie will make you talk for years and years. How true was that!
    I have seen this on so many different formats throughout the years on VHS,TV,,LASER DISC,DVD and now Blu Ray.
    After hearing the loss of another talented writer/director and actor this made me watch it again.
    I love this film with a ghostly passion. Everything is so cool along with the song that surly everybody knows in…

  • August: Osage County 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Jan, 2014

    Take a look at the poster, be warned, this isn't a funeral dinner,it's a cock fight.

    I don't like watching plays but enjoy watching movies and thoroughly enjoyed this, it was a big mesh of top quality acting with everybody involved.

    Meryl and Julia are terrific in this and I have to give kudos to Julia for competing against the wonderful Streep who is simply amazing on any role she takes up.

    Very compelling with the odd family issue that can surprise you here and there.

  • The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 09 Jan, 2014 3

    Move over Gordon Gekko we have Jordon Belfort in town.
    The first 5mins of this film is a part of Leo's life after Titanic was released, money,cars,houses,whores, and probably drugs. Luckily he got out of the rat race and became a professional respected actor.
    Now listen up Oscar's whatever he did in the passed to piss you off, I think you should forgive this guy and hand over a Solid Gold statue because he fully deserves it. Sorry Matthew McConaughey…

  • The Jerk 1979

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 31 Dec, 2013 6

    This is one example of why Steve Martin was a pure comedy genius in the 80's.
    Sharp,funny,witty and hilarious all the way through and he gets to play a tune on his favourite instrument which is the classic banjo.
    I love this film where Steve plays a kinda Forest Gump which he creates his own American dream.
    The comedy keeps flying at you in different events and it still makes me laugh about his special purpose to this day.
    I'm loving it .:/-)

  • The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 28 Dec, 2013

    I absolutely love the LOTR trilogy and am thoroughly enjoying The Hobbit. The only downfall is this should have been made into one entire film and cut into two parts (like QT did for Kill Bill).
    What a way to finish part two :-( (Should have waited for the extended version and by than part 3 would have been released)
    Can understand some reviews of people not liking it but if you didn't like Part part one, why watch part…

  • Planes, Trains and Automobiles 1987

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 24 Dec, 2013 4

    This is my favourite comedy....FACT!
    Why!
    John Candy was the funniest man on earth until he sadly passed away.
    Also having Steve Martin who is hilarious back in the good old days is a double bonus.
    Placing these two together is pure genius and we all know who that is....John Hughes (another great loss of talent).
    This is the film that can make you laugh out loud in places especially when Steve is missing his rental car.
    I have seen…

  • Scrooge 1970

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Dec, 2013

    My 2nd Christmas film for this December and what a film to enjoy the Christmas spirit.
    Everyone knows the story of Ebby and I didn't realise this film was also a musical. The only gripe I can knock it was the songs, only 2 songs made me tap my feet as the others were just songs with no rhythm.
    It's good to see old greats in this and Alec Guinness is a fantastic ghost.
    The effects for it's time were…
