    Victoria 2015

    ★★★ Watched 27 Jul, 2016

    Director Sebastian Schipper is to be commended for the technical feat of shooting this 2h odd film in one take.
    Unfortunately the story itself doesn't do the film much good although I wouldn't call it terrible.

  • Independence Day

    Independence Day 1996

    ★★★½ Rewatched 22 Jul, 2016

    I watched the 1080P remastered version part of the ID4 4K UHD package on my 50" Pioneer KURO Plasma.
    I can definitely tell the video is very much an improvement over the 2008 BD release.
    Can't wait to own a 4K HDR panel and UHD BD player and watch the 4K HDR version!
    As cheesy as ID4 is, I like going back to it every several years because it's still fun and enjoyable.

    Strange Days 1995

    ★★★★½ Watched 30 Apr, 2013 8

    What a fantastic collaboration between James Cameron for writing this impressive 90's futuristic story and the screenplay and Kathryn Bigelow for directing this fantastic thrill ride! The film's got great leading performances from Ralph Fiennes as Lenny Nero, Juliette Lewis and Angela Bassett. The supporting cast is impressive too with solid performances across the board. The action sequences are simply fantastic, Kathryn Bigelow really shines in that department. This was my 1st viewing of Strange Days and expect to revisit this great film once either the US or UK blu-ray is released. Highly recommended!

  • The Wolf of Wall Street

    The Wolf of Wall Street 2013

    ★★★★ Watched 19 Mar, 2014 2

    One of Mr. Scorsese's finest films, The Wolf of Wall Street is a 3 hour tour de force brimmed with energy and fantastic acting.
    Like so many other reviewers have already stated before me, it is a feat and an acknowledgement for a 3 hour film to only feel not even half as long, it is that good.
    I don't think it is worth a 5 star rating but I did thoroughly enjoy the hell out of it and will definitely add this to my Blu-ray collection.
