  • An Officer and a Gentleman 1982

    ★★ Watched 27 Aug, 2014

    Richard Gere is the least gentlemanly gentleman ever called a gentleman in the title of a film. A gentleman wouldn't, generally, call a young lady a "cunt" I don't believe. Even if the young lady in question had done something bad.

    The film is melodramatic hogwash, with Louis Gossett Jr's Oscar-winning performance as a tough drill sergeant the only saving grace.

  • Sharknado 2013

    Watched 22 Jul, 2014

    Unremittingly terrible on every level. Half of the one star I've awarded it is for the sheer audacity of the creators for actually making this film.

    Needless to say I absolutely loved it.

  • 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.
