  • Dallas Buyers Club 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Feb, 2015

    Macho cowboy in the eighties gets HIV, starts researching a cure, gets entangled in the AZT drug trails and finally starts a 'buyers club'. Based upon a true story.

    Seriously, just watch this. Matthew McConaughey, Jared Leeto and Jennifer Garner in fine form. Indeed Oscar worthy.

  • Uncle Buck 1989

    ★★★½ Rewatched 25 Feb, 2015

    One of John Candy's finest. In great interaction with both the little Culkin and director John Hughes.

    Family of 3 need to leave their kids with the never grown up uncle for a week while visiting family. Kids haven't seen their uncle in years and act out. Teenage daughter hangs around with her slacker boyfriend, little brother and sister are just amused.

    Goes from simple comedy to family flick and tale of redemption without being boring.

    And let's not forget the scene with a grinning Candy and his power drill.

  • Maniac Cop 1988

    Watched 24 Feb, 2015

    Eighties slasher cult with Bruce Campbell. Can't believe it took me this long to see it. And I guess I would have liked it more as a teenager. Pretty lame.

  • Green Lantern 2011

    ★★★ Rewatched 13 Feb, 2015

    Sometimes you think "hey, this is not as bad as they say it is" and a minute later you're reminded why this movie is.

    Not even Ryan Reynolds can lift this over 'mediocre at best'.
