    Westworld 1973

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 15 Jul, 2016

    Stands up remarkably well for a 40+ year old film. A lot more unintentionally funny than I remember (it's a good idea to have a failsafe on the doors or some kind of ventilation system) and the special effects don't seem too bad at all. Very enjoyable.

    ★★★ Watched 09 Jul, 2016

    I don't really remember this film but I must have seen it before. It hasn't aged particularly well. The flying sequence with the annoying Max goes on far too long with nothing happening. Pretty standard 80s Disney fare.

    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.

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