  • The Firm

    The Firm 1993

    ★★★ Rewatched 24 Sep, 2016

    The first, but not the best, Grisham adaptation. Gene Hackman is the best thing about it.

  • A Time to Kill

    A Time to Kill 1996

    ★★★★ Rewatched 18 Sep, 2016

    One the best Grisham adaptations. Occasionally overwrought but some fantastic performances and of course there's *that* closing speech.

  • 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.

  • Ninja Terminator

    Ninja Terminator 1985

    ★★★★ Watched 16 Oct, 2015

    Simply incredible.

    And awful.

    And amazing.

    And dreadful.

    I want a garfield phone.
