    It's not particularly eventful but it's incredibly engrossing.

    It shows its flaws second time around but it is still a gut-punch of a film.

    The amazing, adrenaline fueled set-pieces are such highs it can feel a little slow during the downtime. But I guess that is what makes it one of the most realistic and visceral contemporary war films ever. Classy Filmmaking.

  • Aliens

    Aliens 1986

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 May, 2012

    The production design is still flawless and the pacing remains perfectly judged. A stone-cold action classic.
