  • Bandolero!

    Bandolero! 1968

    ★★★★ Watched 15 May, 2015

    James Stewart and Dean Martin are brothers in Bandolero!, a western directed by the underrated - I think so anyway - Andrew V. McLaglen. This casting automatically puts this film in the success column for me, being a Dean fan, a Stewart fan and a huge James Stewart western apologist, so this film was ahead a few points from the get-go.

    Dean and his crew hold up a bank and get caught by an earnest sheriff (George Kennedy). He calls…

    Dirty Dingus Magee 1970

    ★★½ Watched 14 May, 2015

    Oh boy, what was everyone involved thinking with this one? I'm all for a western comedy, even with some bawdy humour thrown in there of course, but this one misses the mark more than it hits it.

    It's probably good David Fincher made Alien 3 if only to confirm the fact that he is human after all.

    I am not quite sure what to say about Gone Girl other than pretty much acknowledging nay pledging my adulation for it right here.

  • Panic Room

    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.
