  • An Honest Liar

    An Honest Liar 2014

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Sep, 2015

    Worth watching just for the eyebrows. This is an interesting and engaging documentary.

  • Real Genius

    Real Genius 1985

    ★★★½ Rewatched 12 Sep, 2015

    Man we were dicks in the 80s. It makes these films quite hard to rewatch. But overall it's still pretty fun, and the finale is nicely ridiculous.

  • Top Gun

    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…
