  • Drácula 1931

    ★★★½ Watched 03 Apr, 2014

    Classic Spanish version of the Universal classic, filmed when the sets weren't being used for the English-speaking version in 1931.

    It sadly doesn't have Bela Lugosi but it does dial down the overly melodramatic acting that is such a turn off in the English production & although it uses the same sets and such from the Todd Browning film I think it's shot much better - the stage actions are more violent & interesting, for example the scene where Dracula smashes the…

  • Slap Shot 1977

    ★★★★ Watched 02 Apr, 2014

    This is one of the most violent sports films that features sexist, homophobic & offensive language - and 70's fashion - I've ever seen.

  • Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Feb, 2013

    I watched this ON A BOAT! The Tall Ship in Glasgow, to be premise. In the hull, where it was cold and damp & we had uncomfortable chairs, I was sat right at the front with a crick in my neck & the film jammed at "we're gonna need a bigger boat" - but I didn't care! Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
