  • Attack the Block

    Attack the Block 2011

    ★★★★★ Watched 21 May, 2016

    A really fun film. Great language. Great performances. Great ending. Not to be taken too seriously. Watch with friends.

  • Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

    Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire 2005

    ★★★★ Rewatched 21 May, 2016 2

    This instalment in the Harry Potter series starts to get a bit mature for our kids 8 and nearly 7, particularly in the romantic aspects. I think we're going to take a break from the series while the kids read the books, catching up on reading and maturity in time for the next films.

    Top Gun 1986

    ★★★★★ Added 3

    I've bought the DVD, the soundtrack, watched the making of and dreamed about Kelly McGillis more than one time. The film that did more for Air Force enlistments than anything else will do the same for you.

    If you've ever been holding on too tight with a bunch of oiled up dudes then you will lose your edge over Top Gun again and again.

  • Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol

    Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol 2011

    ★★½ Watched 17 Dec, 2011 6

    What did I learn from Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol? Let me see. There are a lot of BMWs in Dubai and Mumbai (coincidence?) and they have safety features you can trust, and cool start controls, and cool wheels and cool grill-lights, what? I haven't seen such gross product placement in a while. Oh yeah, and iPhones. iPhones are cool, iPads are cool, apparently USB cables are cool; but iPhones in rubberised cases? I guess they might knock them around…
