  • Groundhog Day 1993

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Jun, 2014

    Easily in my top ten if not my top five comedies of all time. Everything you could do right in a film, they did it here. The editing is absolutely flawlessly and this film is a perfect example of how timing and editing are ESSENTIAL in making a comedy work. The jokes are still really great twenty years on which just goes to show you how excellent the script is. The story too is very well crafted and never stops being entertaining and touching you on so many levels. The cast really has great chemistry too. Fantastic film all the way through.

  • Hellraiser: Bloodline 1996

    ★★ Watched 18 Jun, 2014

    Lol fuck this film. It had zero cenobites in it and really was about the whole history of the puzzle box that I don't care about because they did a dumb job with it. Super cheap fucking film and they obviously forgot what made the others a lot better.

    ★★½ Watched 08 Mar, 2013

    Creepy and abstract. This short film finishes before it even have a chance to begin. Maybe that was the point though to capture a mere flash-in-the-pan kind of spontaneity.

  • Hiroshima mon amour 1959

    ★★★★ Watched 08 Jun, 2014

    This film is essentially visual poetry. You can really see it link between the golden age of cinema and French new-wave. The is a lot of romanticisation in regards to the relationship and that's what I feel it borrows from the Golden era. However it's extremely intelligent and the dialogue for all intent and purposes is just pure poetry. Really beautifully written. Visually the film is amazing. The shots are beautiful. Fantastic film.
