  • The League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse 2005

    ★★★ Watched 17 Nov, 2014

    “Seen, seen, seen, seen, seen..."

    Luckily there isn't too much acting in League of Gentlemen's Apocalypse. Even more luckily creators Reece Sheersmith, Steve Pemberton, and Mark Gatiss have made an inventive, twisted and frequently hilarious movie.

    They have pulled off the tricky very easily, and they have made Apocalypse entertaining to us diehard fans and newcomers alike.

    Now I'm off to play me some Go Johnny Go Go..

  • Runaway Train 1985

    ★★★½ Rewatched 17 Nov, 2014

    Stoker is phenomenal.

    It's as dreamy as it is taught. As beautiful as it is horrific. It's The Tree of Life with A screenplay. An outstanding screenplay at that. It has been said that…

  • Skyfall 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2012 37

    Sam Mendes proves his Bond making credentials, and confirms his excellent film making credentials.

    Skyfall certainly is an excellent film. The best Bond film in 48 years. This is a proper spy film, and James Bond, as a character is a proper spy.

    As a Bond fan this film pleased me in every way. You have to hand it to the film makers, it takes massive balls to put a 4 minute title sequence 10 minutes into a massive film…
