  • Miles Ahead

    Miles Ahead 2015

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jun, 2016

    Miles Ahead is a complete mess, but a massively enjoyable complete mess which turns the traditional biopic on its head.

    There's a great film franchise to be had here following the template set out in the film. Take one major event from Miles Davis' life and bolt it on to a different film genre. We've now had relationship with Frances Taylor/crime caper. My vote for the next one is Davis meets Bird and Dizz/Western.

  • Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure

    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure 1989

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 22 May, 2016

    Possibly the most joyous film ever made. I cannot think of a single way it could be improved.

    Bloodsport 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 27 Jan, 2012 4

    Depending on which of the two types of martial arts movie plot you prefer (fighting your way through a tournament to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative or learning a new martial arts technique from an old master to avenge the death/injury of your friend/relative) then either this or Kickboxer is Van Damme's best film. Although he should have won two best actor Oscars for Double Impact, obviously.
