  • The Matrix 1999

    ★★★★ Rewatched 25 May, 2014

    Better than I remembered.

  • The World's End 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 11 May, 2014

    I had no idea what this film was about and found the first 20-30mins quite annoying. Simon Pegg's character is deeply unlikeable and there were no laughs at all. But then the reveal occurred and it was a lot more fun with some big laughs (the fight scene in the bar had me in tears). All in all I enjoyed it.

    Quite possibly the worst film I have ever watched. Utterly reprehensible drivel that wasted two and a half hours of my life.

  • Memento 2000

    ★★★★ Rewatched 02 May, 2012 2

    Hard to review. It's a good film, a very good film but I don't think it's an all-time classic.

    A lot shorter than I remember and for some reason the story felt less involved, especially the whole Natalie sub-plot. I remembered a lot from previous viewings, not sure if that helped. I've also seen the forward version before.

    If you've never seen it before make sure you keep your eyes open throughout as there are several subtle clues. The story runs backwards and it will keep you thinking long after viewing as you piece it all together.
