  • The Princess Bride 1987

    ★★★ Watched 17 Apr, 2014 1

    ..... This was the epic, classic romance everybody's been talking about? I thought I was missing out but ... did I really watch the right film?

    I mean, I liked it. But ... I only liked it.

  • The Monuments Men 2014

    ★★★ Watched 11 Apr, 2014 1

    Not as funny as I thought it was going to be but a fantastic cast and it certainly has its moments. It has the potential to be A LOT better though. Pretty disappointing overall.

  • Wuthering Heights 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Apr, 2014

    Great performances and bleak atmosphere.

  • 12 Angry Men 1957

    ★★★★½ Watched 10 Apr, 2014

    I've always been told that this is a must watch film, but I always thought to myself, "Why do I want to watch 12 men be angry?!" So I put it on my LoveFilm list so that one day I would have to watch. But I should have read the description because it was quite obvious this was going to be something I would really enjoy. And I did. It's excellent!

    I feel like I've seen it before, though, but I may have seen the awful TV film remake.

  • The Last Exorcism 2010

    Watched 10 Apr, 2014

    Same old, same old.

  • Law Abiding Citizen 2009

    ★★★ Rewatched 01 Apr, 2014

    On a second watch I thought this was a lot better than I originally did. I paid a lot more attention this time around and found myself thinking it was actually quite clever, and this time around I was actually interested in where it would go, even though I remembered the excellent ending.

  • The Fog 2005

    Watched 10 Apr, 2014 5

    Ghost zombies?! Really?! And what a stupidly predictable cliché horror ending.

    Is the original worth it, anyone?

  • The Bourne Ultimatum 2007

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Apr, 2014 3

    A fantastic end to the Bourne trilogy, perfectly bringing the story full circle with an explosive end.

  • The Bourne Supremacy 2004

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Apr, 2014

    My least favourite of the original trilogy but still a great action film. It keeps the story going on well enough and has more excellent chase sequences, but whilst the flow in between each film is seamless, the middle part is always the easiest to forget.

  • The Bourne Identity 2002

    ★★★★ Watched 03 Apr, 2014

    The first film in a fantastic trilogy led by Matt Damon, and definitely the best of the three. A solid action thriller, a great cast, and Matt Damon plays his role excellently, making Jason Bourne a big name in the world of action films.

  • Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 01 Apr, 2014

    A franchise that gets better and better with every film, as this is now my favourite out of the four. The cast is improving with the addition here of Simon Pegg and Jeremy Renner, and I also enjoyed Léa Seydoux's role after recently watching Blue Is The Warmest Colour.

  • Mission: Impossible III 2006

    ★★★½ Watched 08 Mar, 2014

    The first film in the franchise that I really enjoyed. That could of had something to do with Philip Seymour Hoffman.
