  • Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince 2009

    ★★★★ Rewatched 22 Oct, 2016

    If you want big battles, wizardry and spell bounding excitement - you do get a couple of crowd pleasers but this instalment of the Potter films focuses more on relationships. It's full of teenage crushes, giggling looks, teenage kisses and romance which was funny in places but also a little more for the teenage audience. In fact the scene where Ron’s sister kneels down to tie Harry’s shoe lace is pure awkward hilarity.

  • They Live

    They Live 1988

    ★★★★ Rewatched 16 Oct, 2016

    Predator 1987

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Oct, 2012 2

    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…
