    Possession 1981

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 23 Jul, 2016

    I think the scream that Isabelle Adjani releases at the climax of *that* scene is where cinema – the whole shebang – reached its peak, and has been in gentle decline ever since.

    Starship Troopers 1997

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 22 Jul, 2016 2

    1997: What the hell is this overly glossy, idiotic, militaristic apologia for facism?
    2007: Oops it was all for lols.
    2017: Realism.
