  • Mulan 1998

    ★★★½ Rewatched 28 Feb, 2015

    It's slow to get going, but when it does there's plenty to enjoy, not least a fantastic set piece with the entire Hun army sweeping over the snowy wastes of northern China .

  • Enchanted 2007

    ★★★½ Rewatched 22 Feb, 2015

    Half term Disneython Film 6

    In which the mighty Disney corporation proves it is not afraid to make fun of itself.

    The animated opening sequence is a joy, the performances are spot-on and the whole thing is very silly and highly enjoyable.

  • 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.
