    Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Aug, 2015

    I'm in love with Rebecca Ferguson. That is all.

  • Black or White

    Black or White 2015

    ★★★½ Watched 05 Jul, 2015

    Doesn't offer anything particular novel in the well-worn world of family melodrama\race relations films, but Black or White does feature Kevin Costner at quite possibly his most emotionally affecting best. And Octavia Spencer is a perfect foil for Costner.

  • Somewhere in Time

    Somewhere in Time 1980

    ★★★★ Rewatched 03 Feb, 2012

    Old-fashioned Hollywood weepie with a devastating ending, but it tugs on the heart strings so very well. Jane Seymour has never been more exquisite. Christopher Reeve utilizes his gentle, boyish charisma to maximum effect. But of course, the main draw here is the legendary John Barry's (RIP) unforgettable score. The swells and cadences of the main theme are equal parts pure love and pure melancholy - a perfect aural representation of Richard's state-of-mind throughout the film.

  • Annabelle

    Annabelle 2014

    ★★★ Watched 02 Oct, 2014

    Although it admirably tries to retain the spirit and tone of The Conjuring, Annabelle is in many respects a lesser film than its predecessor. A sense of Rosemary's Baby-esque parental dread does effectively permeate the film, but the scares themselves are mostly ineffectual save for the first and last ones. Still, it is centered by a lovely performance by Annabelle Wallis - hope this leads to bigger and better things for her.

    Eagerly waiting for the Warrens to return to the big screen in The Conjuring sequel.
