  • Blood Ties 2013

    ★★★ Watched 20 Dec, 2014

    Slow paced character crime film starring Clive Owen and Billy Crudup. The best thing of this film is that it feels very authentic. I guess I wasn't really in the mood for this type of film and was hoping for something a little more upbeat. Still what I saw looked interesting though and there's definitely good chemistry between the two main characters who are also brothers.

  • Terminator 2: Judgment Day 1991

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 20 Dec, 2014 1

    To celebrate my pioneer bdp working again this is what I chose to watch. One of my all time favorites, James Cameron's superb Terminator 2: Judgment Day from 1991. The epic score, the grim but oh so fantastic mood, the wonderful humor and of course the great action sequences. Terminator 2 has it all and then some! I still can remember how I felt watching this back in '91 in theater. I couldn't process what I had just witnessed. All…

  • 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.
