  • The Shining

    The Shining 1980

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 26 Sep, 2016

    From the gliding aerial shots in the opening credits through to the cameras ghost like drifting through many of the hotel corridors -this film mesmorises and always seems fresh and new. (apart from the hotel carpet which is far beyond retro) Not only is The Shining one of my all time favourite films but it also has one of my all time favourite scenes in film: as Jack Nicholson looks down at a scale model of the hedge maze and…

    A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984

    ★★★★ Rewatched 19 Sep, 2016

    You've seen it a hundred times...but it never loses its charm. This classic Arnie Sci-Fi Action-er sees a crack team of commandos on a rescue mission in the Central American jungle. The mission goes from bad to worse as they soon realise a dangerous alien predator is hunting them down. This is one of my favourite Arnie films. It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…
