  • Hackers

    Hackers 1995

    ★★ Watched 22 Aug, 2015

    Oh mercy. I hadn't seen this old cult flick before, and decided that 20 years after the fact, it was finally time. I think I'm 20 years late to the party though.

    A group of young, cool hackers are framed by a powerful corporation when they get ahold of one of their most important files.

    There are some movies that have scenes or moments which just feel laughably dated, and then there are some that are that scene. Hackers is…

  • Fright Night

    Fright Night 1985

    ★★★ Rewatched 14 Aug, 2015

    Rear Window meets Dracula. I found this on Blu-ray as part of an online bargain, and wanted to see it again. It's a pretty charming vampire movie, but I have still only seen it about two or three times to date.

  • Captain America: The Winter Soldier

    Captain America: The Winter Soldier 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 26 Mar, 2014

    I don't think superhero films should be comedies, history has proven that they work so much better as thrillers. And that's why Captain America: The Winter Soldier is my favourite Marvel film to date, possibly even more so than The Avengers.

    When someone threatens to cause major damage to S.H.I.E.L.D., Captain America has to rethink everything he knows - already trying to adapt to the 21st century, he's making new friends and meeting old ones, thinking of partners lost and…
