  • Deranged 1974

    ★★★½ Watched 28 Sep, 2013

    Roberts Blossom's performance as the Gein-a-like Ezra Cobbs makes this film. Ludicrous and disgusting in equal measure, with just the right amount of dark humour thrown into the mix.

  • Rushmore 1998

    ★★★ Watched 27 Sep, 2013

    I have tried so hard to love this film. It was the first Wes Anderson film I saw years ago, and while I liked it I certainly wasn't impressed or enticed by his signature style.
    Fast forward a few years to the release of Moonrise Kingdom, and I finally "got" Anderson. Even more so when I picked up a copy of Royal Tenenbaums, which is now firmly in my top ten films.
    I had hoped going back and rewatching Rushmore would be a revelation, that the genius of the film would finally reveal itself to me, but I was ultimately left disappointed.

  • Hostel 2005

    ★★ Watched 24 Sep, 2012 1

    One of those films I felt like I should have seen, so thought I'd give it a go. It isn't very good is it?

  • The Card Player 2004

    ★★½ Watched 07 Jan, 2013

    I'd braced myself for the worst before watching this, so was pleasantly surprised when it wasn't as atrocious as I'd feared. Far from Argento's best work, and as others have said it does feel more like a TV show than a movie. Adjust your expectations accordingly and it might not be so bad an experience.
