  • Batman Returns

    Batman Returns 1992

    ★★★½ Rewatched 26 Jul, 2015

    I've always been scared of Danny DeVito because of his role as the Penguin, but that's what a superhero villain should do. Michael Keaton is brilliant, once again, and I really wish Michelle Pfeiffer had her own Catwoman film.

  • Batman

    Batman 1989

    ★★★★ Rewatched 21 Jul, 2015

    I always remember how good Jack Nicholson is as the Joker in these films, but constantly forget what a fantastic Batman Michael Keaton made.Tim Burton creates a fantastic Gotham, suiting his style of filming perfectly. And with a great villain and leading lady, the cast is perfect.

  • Johnny English

    Johnny English 2003

    ★★★ Rewatched 26 Jul, 2015

    As a fan of Rowan Atkinson, I can actually tolerate this film on even a rewatch. The second film didn't work as well, but there's some great comedy moments in this first Bond spoof. John Malkovich is great, too.

  • Scooby-Doo

    Scooby-Doo 2002

    ★★½ Rewatched 26 Jul, 2015

    For a live-action adaptation of one of my favourite childhood cartoons, I actually quite like the casting. I really enjoyed this film when I was younger, too, but it's far too immature to enjoy in the same way anymore.

  • The Long Kiss Goodnight

    The Long Kiss Goodnight 1996

    ★★★ Watched 24 Jul, 2015

    You can tell that Shane Black is behind the writing, which works perfectly for casting Samuel L. Jackson.

  • Angel

    Angel 2007

    ★½ Watched 23 Jul, 2015

    Angel has to be one of the most annoying characters that film has ever seen. Watching her for a whopping 134 minutes was such a tedious task!

  • Blood Creek

    Blood Creek 2009

    Watched 23 Jul, 2015

    Don't watch this is if you have any respect for Michael Fassbender.

  • Ca$h

    Ca$h 2010

    ★½ Watched 22 Jul, 2015

    A really terrible thriller, which feels pretty cheap for a film called "Cash". It's hard to believe that a film from as late as 2010 with a lead by Chris Hemsworth (THOR!!) could be this poor.

  • Under Siege

    Under Siege 1992

    ★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    Most of the time whilst watching this, I was worried about the stripper.

  • Black Hawk Down

    Black Hawk Down 2001

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    I've read a lot of negative reviews for this film, but I don't see what's so wrong with it. I didn't love it, but I certainly enjoyed watching it, and the cast was excellent.

  • The Trouble with Harry

    The Trouble with Harry 1955

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Jul, 2015

    I thought I had seen all of the Alfred Hitchcock films worth watching, but this is now another one of my favourites. Another great thriller/mystery with a lot of comedy, as well.

  • Far from the Madding Crowd

    Far from the Madding Crowd 2015

    ★★★ Watched 16 Jul, 2015

    To be honest I wasn't a fan of Thomas Hardy's original novel, but I watched this because I love Carey Mulligan and I was expecting something similar to Joe Wright's Pride & Prejudice.

    But again, I didn't enjoy the story nor the romances, when I wanted to be swept away by a classic love story (by the end, at least).
