    Django Unchained 2012

    ★★★★ Watched 05 Jan, 2014 2

    I'm not sure why I waited this long to see Django Unchained, for some reason it just didn't really appeal to me as much as Tarantino's other movies. (I've still not brought myself to watch Death Proof).

    Jamie Foxx is Django, a man sold into slavery and freed by Dr King Schultz, (brilliantly played by Christoph Waltz), on the condition Django helps him bring in a bounty. Django shows a talent for the bounty hunting business, so they form a…

    Star Trek Into Darkness 2013

    ★★★★ Rewatched 04 Jan, 2014 1

    JJ Abrams rebooted Star Trek universe continues in an extremely fast paced, fun and totally unsubtle 'homage' to The Wrath of Khan.

    Airplane! 1980

    -Surely this is the best comedy of all time?
    -It is and don't call me Shirley.

    What can I write about this movie that hasn't been written before? Not a lot I guess. I will just say that sitting this watching it with my girlfriend who had never seen it was a joy.

    The HD transfer looked good (even though it exposes some of the wire work that goes on throughout the movie) and it still has the power to…
