    The Great Escape 1963

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 14 Jun, 2015 2

    This is probably the best classic that has ever been made, with a huge amount of great actors that you adore through the entire movie.
    Each actor has a great role and I can guarantee everybody has a favorite when this movie is talked about.
    It's very entertaining but you have to remember this was based on a true story and quite harrowing in places with the men desperately trying to escape.
    The classic tune everybody should know including kids…

    What makes QT a solid director?
    It's because back in the days before becoming a Director he was a super fan of the old genre movies like myself and cares for anything that deserves credit. His head is always full of spirit and ideas, one day it will explode.
    Here we have a perfect example of QT's mind and how he wants to portray Death Proof. Again we have a superb piece of dialogue with all the actors involved and…

    Wow what a rush!
    Remember the enjoyable/craziness 20mins of action in Mad Max 2, this is what we get from the entire movie.
    George Miller has come back into this decade and recycled his cult movie from the early 80's into something better for the 20th Century. The visuals and colour are used correctly, it's stunning to see just for that. The action is non stop with insane stunts and ludicrous scenes which keeps your heart pumping faster throughout.

    Why on earth didn't I see this years ago. Maybe because it's pushed behind with all the other great classics Scorsese has released.
    This is De Niro at his fully best (that's because this was in the early 80's and he has Marty S behind the camera).
    He play's a guy who is obsessed with an talk show host and knows he can clam to fame too. But that isn't the case for him as it becomes out of control…

    Somebody must be rubbing their hands together after casting Downey to play Tony Stark A.K.A Ironman (whoops did I just leak out a spoiler).
    Can't believe this was over 7 years ago when this was released. Now having thought long and hard this is my favourite character and it's great to see how everything all began.
    To be honest I really didn't think much of this the first time but now having grown on me, this movie rocked da house…

    Ray Harryhausen was an absolute gem creating monsters for the movie world. Especially in that time of period where they had no proper tech to play around with.
    This is my personal favourite of his...why! Because it's so damn good all the way through with some great moments for everybody to remember.
    I have lost count of how many times I have seen this film. I remember being memorized at the screen of what I was seeing on a old…

    George Lazenby taking over the role of Sean Connery.
    This was a difficult move for the studio to choose of who could step into the shoes of our hero.
    Well, I think they did the right choice as he played his part very well.
    Plenty of funny lines for him to play the suave and likeable Bond we needed.
    Peter Hunt behind the camera always works with his fantastic fast editing during the action scenes.
    Some tiny hints of our…

    Around 2001 sometime this was the first Wes Anderson movie I had seen. Coming out of the cinema I just couldn't get my head around what all the fuss was about.
    Now after joining the 40's club and having seen most of his films I have become a huge fan. Maybe it's true, the older you get, the more appreciated you become of these quirky movies.
    What a perfect start to have the song 'Hey Jude' blaring out of the…

    7 years before David Brent created his stardom for 'The Office' we had Silent Bob raising his. David worked in a office and Bob (well, didn't work) hanged around a store smoking dope with his side kick Jay. This was the beginning of his career and what a fantastic start.
    This movie rocks, ok the acting isn't the best at times but who cares!
    It's witty and the dialogue is hilarious especially the Star Wars chat.
    Having a low budget…

    French films (not the naughty ones ) are simply made with a beautiful passion. A great story,cinematography,soundtrack and a bunch of talented actors placed together and again we have a fantastic movie.
    I fully recommend this to everyone, it's a lovely story and you feel sorry for one of the characters. It shows how cruel people can be with jealousy and greed which probably has effected most people in their life time.
    The soundtrack is well known, simply stunning and…

    Bruce Wayne!

    Michael Keaton loves to play characters that begin with B. These are his best well known roles too.
    What a movie! The direction is the first thing that draws you into the movie. Keaton's performance is top notch but it's Edward Norton who wins this over for me personally. The script is original (rare these days) and the comedy is spot on.
    So great to see behind the theater scenes of Broadway including the roof…

    After watching this I rather be putting myself in an army training camp with Gnr. SGT. Hartman (Full Metal Jacket) then having Fletcher shouting at me.
    I couldn't help noticing Miles Teller was like a young John Cusack at times.
    The performances are top notch but what really stands out is the pure direction and editing. This is what we call true film making. Every shot is done to perfection, when those drums are banging away fiercely the editing is…
