  • Space Pirate Captain Harlock 2013

    ★★★½ Watched 18 Aug, 2014 1

    Okay, the story in Space Pirate Captain Harlock is not the greatest out there, I'll give you that.
    But I am a sucker for anything space, space ships, space combats, pirates, skulls and gorgeous looking space babes so there :)
    I watched Mr. Shinji Aramaki's Space Captain with plenty of enjoyment.
    There is simply something badass listening to Japanese tracks, especially with sci-fi flicks, animated or no.
    The vibe I got from this film was really good and I'm contemplating whether to add this to my blu-ray collection or not.

  • Butterfly on a Wheel 2007

    ★½ Watched 14 Aug, 2014

    Weak and superficial "thriller". I lost count how many times I rolled my eyes out of boredom. This is the worst performance of Gerard Butler I've seen but to be honest the script is pretty bad to work with. Then again Pierce Brosnan as the baddy seems to be having more fun and puts in a "better" performance. All in all this film is truly forgettable.

  • 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 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.
