  • The Two Faces of January

    The Two Faces of January 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 19 Apr, 2015

    Surprisingly a really entertaining thriller. Great performances, beautiful locations, and a real seductive feel to it. I didn't expect anything above average from this, but I was genuinely impressed.

  • Synecdoche, New York

    Synecdoche, New York 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2015

    You have to put all of your efforts into concentrating on everything that goes on, and obviously it's a film that betters with more viewings, but it's so worth it.

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest 1975

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Apr, 2015

    Another fantastic performance from Jack Nicholson, but also from the rest of the cast, too. There's some great humour to this, but it's such a real drama at the same time.

  • Chinatown

    Chinatown 1974

    ★★★★ Watched 01 Apr, 2015

    Chinatown looks great, and Jack Nicholson is brilliant.

  • The Raven

    The Raven 2012

    ★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2015

    It's all very average but I found it quite enjoyable overall.

  • The Riot Club

    The Riot Club 2014

    ★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2015

    The casting for this is perfect. It's an odd premise and not quite what I was expecting. Very little happens to be honest and I thought the drama was going to be much bigger, but the young cast make it worth the one watch, at least.

  • Run Lola Run

    Run Lola Run 1998

    ★★½ Watched 29 Apr, 2015

    I was very underwhelmed by this, maybe I need to rewatch it at some point?

  • Bronson

    Bronson 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2015

    Well that wasn't what I was expecting. I knew this film would be a good drama since the life of Bronson is so original and intriguing, but Bronson is so theatrical and entertaining at the same time. You wouldn't think a story could be played out so 'fun', but that's just what it is.

  • I Confess

    I Confess 1953

    ★★★ Watched 23 Apr, 2015

    Not one of Hitchcock's filsm that I will watch frequently but a great thriller all the same.

  • You Don't Mess With the Zohan

    You Don't Mess With the Zohan 2008

    ★★ Watched 19 Apr, 2015

    Oh, Sandler. What is this?

  • Fever Pitch

    Fever Pitch 2005

    ★★★ Watched 19 Apr, 2015

    I only watched this to see Jimmy Fallon in a film. With Drew Barrymore, as well, this was a pretty good rom-com.

  • A View to a Kill

    A View to a Kill 1985

    ★★★ Watched 21 May, 2015

    Christopher Walken is the only good thing about this one.
