  • The Neverending Story III: Escape from Fantasia

    The Neverending Story III: Escape from Fantasia 1994

    ★★ Watched 16 May, 2015

    Realistically this is an awful piece of kids cinema. The kids seemed to enjoy it. They definitely got it. I haven't heard them mention it since.

  • The Homesman

    The Homesman 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 08 May, 2015

    The west was brutal, desolate and lonely in this slow but steady film. I wish we'd watched that submarine film with Jude Law. This one will be with me for a little while.

  • 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…
