  • First Blood 1982

    ★★★★ Rewatched 25 Sep, 2014

    First watch in many years. One of Stallone's best films - the smaller scale, the emphasis on character, strong performances (especially Dennehy) and gritty, thrilling action make this far superior to anything that followed.

  • The Counselor 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Sep, 2014 1

    Loved it! You're all wrong!

  • Scream 4 2011

    ★★ Watched 13 Feb, 2012 7

    Not awful, just ordinary... those in-jokes and meta-references that once seemed so clever and fresh now just feel tired, and it's way too drawn-out and repetitive. Still, Craven delivers a few suspenseful sequences and the 'teen' cast provide some youthful energy even if the old-timers (Campbell, Cox, Arquette) clearly just turned up for the pay cheque.

  • Repo Man 1984

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 03 Mar, 2012

    One of my all-time favourite movies - cult movie perfection. The dialogue, the characters, the performances and the whacked-out mix of punk rock teen alienation and sci-fi conspiracy hijinks make for a brilliantly original one-off. And the new blu-ray looks GREAT!
