  • Saving Private Ryan 1998

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 05 Nov, 2014

    Probably the best war drama there is, and what an exceptional cast.

  • The Man with the Golden Gun 1974

    ★★½ Watched 07 Nov, 2014

    I didn't enjoy this one as much as I have the other James Bond films so far. It just lacked a lot of the adventure and action.

  • Happy Gilmore 1996

    ★★★ Rewatched 05 Nov, 2014

    The days when Adam Sandler was bareable.

  • Cocoon 1985

    ★★½ Watched 05 Nov, 2014

    It tries to have the heart and comedy of 80s sci-fi's such as Batteries Not Included, but it doesn't quite have the same charm. It's cheesy, for sure, but it's not heart-warming or nostalgic as it should be. Kind of weird in places, to be honest. It's an okay film, but not the sci-fi classic I was hoping for. Lovely cast though.

  • Ransom 1996

    ★★★½ Watched 05 Nov, 2014 1

    Ron Howard's films always have a cheesy feel to them, which suits Mel Gibson's acting perfectly. Ransom is a decent hostage film and thriller with a good twist. It's quite predictable, but it works.

  • The Women 2008

    ★★½ Rewatched 05 Nov, 2014

    Pretty decent for a chick flick with a great female ensemble cast, but nothing more than you would expect.

  • Out of the Furnace 2013

    ★★★ Watched 04 Nov, 2014

    Excellent performances from the brilliant Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, and Woody Harrelson. A gripping and intense first half but I quickly lost interest.

  • The Judge 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 04 Nov, 2014

    The Judge may not have been the courtroom drama or intense thriller that I thought it was going to be, but instead it was a really lovely, heart-warming drama. There are many emotional moments, especially with thanks to the use of Bon Iver in the soundtrack, and Robert Downey Jr. and Robert Duvall have a great chemistry together. The two excellent leads bring some moments of comedy as well as a number of tear-jerking scenes, which keeps you really engaged in their relationship.

  • Knight and Day 2010

    ★★★½ Rewatched 12 Oct, 2014

    I can't help but like this romantic action comedy even though I know I shouldn't. But Cruise and Diaz are great together.

  • I Spit on Your Grave 2010

    ★½ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    It's not a bad production for such a horror, but I take no enjoyment from a group of men sexually torturing a girl. Her revenge was okay to watch though, but its extremely gruesome and it makes for a very sick film.

  • The Quiet Ones 2014

    ★★½ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    I don't like stories like this because they may be "based on actual events" but I don't believe in any of this kind of thing. But this film doesn't push the paranormal down your throat and doesn't force you into thinking that this is all true, even though it supposedly is. A few unexplainable things happen, but I like how it tries to give explanations and theories for most of it. I like the whole style of the film and setting, as well, and all of the performances are decent.

  • [REC] 2 2009

    ★★½ Watched 31 Oct, 2014

    It's interesting how the story continues and there's some good progression, but it's too similar to the first film. We've seen all of this happen before so it doesn't have the same effect.
