  • The Good Girl

    The Good Girl 2002

    ★★★½ Watched 23 Oct, 2016

    I'm pretty sure the picture was stretched. Perhaps that added even more to the frumpy vibe. An enjoyable, above average film that doesn't really stand out.

  • Hunt for the Wilderpeople

    Hunt for the Wilderpeople 2016

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Oct, 2016

    A little ropey for me in the beginning but quickly settles in for a heart felt, comedic, super-New Zealand story.

  • 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…
