  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 04 Apr, 2015 1

    This was so good at the cinema! I didn't think I'd ever get the opportunity to see it on the big screen but the Final Cut was on at the local, and it was incredible.

  • Assassins

    Assassins 1995

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Feb, 2015

    90s action movie involving a hyperactive Banderas and a stone-cold Stallone. Worth watching for one particularly taut taxi ride sequence, though extra incentives include a gunfight at a funeral (always good in my book), and the scene made famous by this gif.

  • The Pursuit of Happyness

    The Pursuit of Happyness 2006

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 11 Jun, 2012 1

    This has to be rated up there as one of Will Smith's best performances, pairing perfectly with his son, Jaden Smith. It's the kind of film that leaves you at the end of the credits wanting to be a better person.

  • Me and You and Everyone We Know

    Me and You and Everyone We Know 2005

    ★★★ Watched 27 Apr, 2012

    Although at first impression it hung on that fine line between quirky and knowingly arty, this flick managed to break through my skepticism and showed itself to be an honest, heartfelt and genuinely hilarious film. Some of the scenes—especially those involving the children—were brilliant and I’ll be laughing about the “back and forth” scene for months.
