  • Across the Pacific

    Across the Pacific 1942

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Feb, 2015

    Part espionage, part action, part romance, Across the Pacific may not be considered a great entry in the filmography of all/most involved, but this story of espionage on the high seas was a lot of fun. It reunited the stars and director of The Maltese Falcon and while it obviously never touches that level of quality it still manages to be a lot of fun. There's loads of story going on, with a romance plot being combined with the spying…

    Lady Killer 1933

    Panic Room 2002

    ★★★★ Watched 23 Aug, 2014 2

    That one David Fincher feature film that I still needed to see.

    Panic Room may seem like the most straightforward film in Finchers oeuvre. It's a thriller about a woman (Jodie Foster) and her daughter (Kristen Stewart) who just moved into an old New York house. In their first night robbers arrive and they flee into the safe room the house is equipped with. The big conundrum is that whatever the robbers seek is in this so-called panic room.
