  • Alien

    Alien 1979

    Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    Not a Science Fiction film with horror elements or a horror film with science fiction ones. This is the one that walks right down the middle and is complete it is 100% both genres at the same time and all of the time.

    The movie is the same as the definition given to the Alien within the film. "You still don't understand what you're dealing with, do you? Perfect organism. Its structural perfection is matched only by its hostility."

    Nothing wasted.

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner 1982

    Watched 17 Apr, 2015

    (2k Restoration of Final Cut on the big screen)

    No movie looks as jaw-droppingly perfect at every single second as this one. Aesthetically for me this is perfection.

    The performances and the music and the thematic content is all great too but the world created is just perfect.

    Evil Mind, Evil Sword. Brilliant Movie.

    Citizenfour 2014

    Riveting, getting to see everyone's faces as this stuff was going on and also the elegant way they showed the security and secrecy that went into their meetings was impressive and chilling.

    Had a pretty good pulsing thriller soundtrack at the right times too.
