  • In Bruges

    In Bruges 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 28 Mar, 2015 1

    I'm really enjoying this little string of slow paced films that I'm on. Started with Inglorious Basterds a few days ago. It makes such a nice change from the mile a minute action, which I also like, but enjoy a change.

    In Bruges is funny, a little moving, and set in a magical fairytale location that pretty much makes it all worthwhile.

    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…
