  • Goodfellas

    Goodfellas 1990

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 08 Feb, 2016

    Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas is a classic gangster romp following Henry Hill (Ray Liotta) as he works his way up through the mob hierarchy. From the very opening line you know this film will pack a punch and the opening scene is one of the most powerful openings ever put to film. You are immediately taken out of your comfort zone and thrown head first into the dark and ominous world of mob culture. Scorsese’s direction is utterly superb and this…

    Airplane! 1980

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 07 Feb, 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…
