  • Nightcrawler 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 09 Jan, 2015

    Jake Gyllenhaal deftly manages the theoretically impossible task of being utterly repellent and completely compelling at the same time.

    Weirdest X-Men spin-off I've ever seen though.

  • Heidi 2005

    ★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2015

    The cast is mostly Irish, including Mrs Doyle from Father Ted. The Alpine exteriors were shot in Slovenia. The child actors are pretty bad. And Max von Sydow is in it. the whole thing is quite, quite mad.

  • 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 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.
