    The Conversation 1974

    ★★★★ Watched 25 Apr, 2016

    I feel like I am experiencing Gene Hackman all over again. I have always loved him as an actor ever since my first experience of Superman. The Firm, Mississipi Burning, French Connection, the list be endless.

    This is Hackman playing a closed off human being who prides himself on spying into the lives of others. A very tense ride with an electric atmosphere created by Hackman and his interactions with others.

    My intention is to watch more of Hackman's less…

    The Shuttered Room 1967

    ★★ Watched 22 Apr, 2016

    This film could happily sit in the adventure realm and it is entertaining because of it's quirky nature.

    I saw this about 25 years ago and it has aged but what it does well is just have fun. Other films like this are Waxwork and Waxwork through time and these films just take you on a journey .

    We need more films like these to entertain the little horror, adventurer freak addict that exists in us all.

    Also, skeleton cowboys are awesome - smile if you remember Bravestar....
