  • John Wick

    John Wick 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 01 May, 2015

    A stylish remake of A Boy And His Dog.

  • The Imitation Game

    The Imitation Game 2014

    ★★★ Watched 23 Apr, 2015

    I've read and watched quite a bit about Alan Turing over the years. I am always so frustrated and angry with how he was treated after the war.

    As with any film about historical events in which I'm interested, I find it frustrating not knowing what is fact and what is fiction. There was however lots to enjoy about this film; if it felt a bit rushed.

  • 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…
