  • Blind Fury

    Blind Fury 1989

    ★★★ Watched 26 Apr, 2016

    Blind Fury is not a good movie by any means I guess, but it is an eighties flick that stars Rutger Hauer as a blind swordsman - trained by Vietnamese swordsmen when he lost his sight in the Vietnam war - out for revenge and taking care of any injustices he encounters.

It's no Zatoichi, but it's (mostly) light, fun and unmistakably eighties.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here. I want to say this isn't a perfect film, but I can't find any fault with it. From stars Ben Affleck - I never hated him, but after this i don't see why anyone still would…

  • What Dreams May Come

    What Dreams May Come 1998

    ★★★★ Watched 12 Aug, 2014

    There is no chance I am able to write an objective review after having seen a Robin Williams film now, but who cares about objectivity at a time like this.

    Minor spoilage included, proceed at your own risk.

    I have consciously avoided What Dreams May Come since its theatrical run,but I felt like this was as good a time as any as the sad plot might prove to be something of a cathartic experience for me. The story of doctor…
