  • U.S. Marshals 1998

    ★★ Watched 02 Jul, 2014 6

    For some reason it always seems to me that Tommy Lee Jones doesn't want to be in the films that he is in. He looks grumpy and acts as if he would rather be someplace else. U.S. Marshals is too 90s. It's too long and the acting is bad. Every character apart from Snipes and Downey and I guess Jones, is stupid and quite frankly just annoying to watch. They think they're being pretty witty and all they're doing is giving me a headache.

  • Edge of Tomorrow 2014

    ★★★★½ Watched 27 Jun, 2014 7

    Tom Cruise pretty much always delivers. Say what you will, that man gives 100 % and I respect him for that. I could say a lot of stuff that this film does right, but I will leave it at Tom Cruise.

  • The Family 2013

    ★★ Watched 26 Jun, 2014 3

    I had hoped that this would at least be a fun movie but it's too inconsistent to even be that. The level of violence in this is cartoonish and the characters are messed up to a degree that really turned me off the film. De Niro is good but probably only because I always enjoy him on screen. Besson, you can do better than this. Or rather, it's more likely that you could do better than this a long time ago. Maybe this is all we can expect from you now. Lucy, anyone?

  • World War Z 2013

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 25 Jun, 2014 7

    Might not be the best film but it stars Brad Pitt and it's constantly on the move. Brad Pitt, man, what a badass.

  • 22 Jump Street 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2014

    Not as good as the first one but I'll put that down to surprise and of course retreading of previous material. Material that is good though, so it is still hugely enjoyable and just a fun fun ride. Jonah Hill is becoming one of my favorite guys to watch on screen.

  • The Lion King 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Jun, 2014

    Looks great on blu, it's a classic, what's not to like.

  • Friday 1995

    ★★★½ Watched 21 Jun, 2014

    Pretty fun movie with Ice Cube as a solid lead. I like movies that take place in one day and this is a great example of that.

  • Escape Plan 2013

    ★★★ Watched 11 Jun, 2014

    Decent action flick with Schwarzenegger in good form. He's way more fun in this one than Stallone which surprised me a little since I usually think Stallone is good. It's so out there that it doesn't even make sense to pick out holes in the plot. There are so many things that don't match up that you just got to let it be and enjoy the movie.

  • Man on Wire 2008

    ★★★★ Watched 10 Jun, 2014 12

    Really well made film about a fantastic and breathtaking story. When they reach the shots of him walking the rope in the sky between the towers it completely stuns me. I can't believe it.

  • Stand by Me 1986

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 05 Jun, 2014 8

    One of the best depictions of friendship ever I would say. The way these guys interact and go through things together feels extremely real. The song choices are excellent and pretty much everyone involved does a good job. Definitely a favourite.

  • Mud 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 03 Jun, 2014 1

    Even better the second time around. McConaughey's performance was even more amazing this time. All the little things he does hit home like a knockout at the end. Probably my favorite performance of his. The first time I watched it it was mostly about discovery and excitement and from Ellis and Neckbone's point of view. It was more about Mud this time, and the way he affects everyone around him.

  • Wayne's World 2 1993

    ★★★ Watched 31 May, 2014 1

    Fun movie. It's a pretty bad movie I guess, but it feels like they are having fun and are putting some effort into it so I can dig that. Good for a couple of beers and a relaxing evening.
