  • Steve Jobs

    Steve Jobs 2015

    ★★★ Watched 21 Nov, 2015

    Strong performances but the structure of the film, while unusual, becomes repetitive. Seth Rogan sports a cracking beard throughout.

  • How to Train Your Dragon

    How to Train Your Dragon 2010

    ★★★★ Watched 15 Nov, 2015

    I knew little about this DreamWorks megahit other than my kids like the books and one of them had already seen this film version and loved it.

    And I loved it too - perfect balance of action and comedy, some brilliant character design and definitely a touch darker than what the folks over at the House of Mouse usually put out.

  • Bloodsport

    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.

  • Dawn of the Dead

    Dawn of the Dead 2004

    ★★★½ Watched 13 Apr, 2012

    I have a dog. He loves going for walks - it's his favourite thing to do. So if I ever find myself on a lovely country stroll without the dog, I feel guilt and shame. That guilt and shame is the same as I felt when I enjoyed the Dawn of the Dead remake. OH GOD I'M SORRY GEORGE.
