  • Saturday Night Fever

    Saturday Night Fever 1977

    ★★★★ Rewatched 02 Aug, 2015

    "You know, I worked on my hair for a long time, and he hit it. He hits my hair."

    "You know, I'm really growing. I'm growing as a person."
    "Well maybe you should go on a diet."

    It was time for a disco classic. I grew up watching Saturday Night Fever and even though it displays less than ideal human behaviour (cursing, rape, drug use, sexism, racism, homophobia and fights - woman aren't spared from words or fists either), I…

  • Piranha

    Piranha 1978

    ★★★ Rewatched 01 Aug, 2015

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

  • 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…
