  • A Patch Of Blue 1965

    ★★★½ Watched 14 Jul, 2014

    As a child I was such a TV addict, I used to watch even if there was nothing on. I often found myself watching the German channel, even though I couldn't understand a word of it. They often showed Hollywood classics, dubbed. I remember watching 'Meet Me in St Louis' in black and white, and I distinctly remember seeing this in colour.

    It took me years to figure out what film this was, I only remembered the image of a…

  • Get Over It 2001

    ★★★½ Watched 17 Feb, 2014 6

    Holy frosted-lipgloss and metallic-eyeshadow, Batman! If there was ever the perfect cinematic time capsule for 2001, it's this film. That extra half star is purely out of nostalgia.

    The opening to this film is the perfect example of why late 90s/early 00s teen films were so great - it's completely over the top and everyone is well aware it is. Within 5 minutes, Vitamin C (who had one mediocre hit and still has a starring role in this as a…
