  • Dial M for Murder 1954

    ★★★★½ Watched 14 Sep, 2014

    One of the best uses of 3-D I've ever seen. Like everything else in today's films, Hitchcock nailed it 50 years ago. Also tons of rear projection, more than I've ever seen before. With so many special effects you don't notice, even in scenes with no action, it essentially makes this Hitchcock's 'Gravity'.

  • Ghostbusters 1984

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 Sep, 2014

    30th Anniversary re-release. When the children asked me on the way to the movies, if I thought the audience was going to sing the theme song in unison, I sadly told them that I was 100% sure there was going to be 10 people there and they'll be made up of paunchy dads with glasses and "Who you gonna call?" shirts, dragging their probably too young children along.

    Nailed it.

    One full star is for the soundtrack, which is perfection. If nothing else comes out of my watching this, there will be tracks from the album on my ipod by dawn....

  • A Million Ways to Die in the West 2014

    ½ Watched 03 Jun, 2014

    Full disclosure: I loathe Family Guy(re:insert American Dad, Cleveland Show, etc). It straight up offends me. Not morally or ethically, but as a comedy lover. It's always been lazy, easy and fucking obvious. To those who love it? Sure. Go ahead. I like many horrible things myself.

    When I'm heading into a movie that looks as bad as this did, I'm actually usually a little excited. Odds are in my favour that a few lines, ideas or scenes will wind…
