    Around the world 2015

    Things happen just like that, out of nowhere in a way, which makes it all a little more frightening. Such good acting as well.

    Around the world 2015

    It sure does look gorgeous. Almost like every shot looks like something out of the World Press Photo exhibition.

    And goddamn, did that car look amazing in every shot.

  • Apocalypto 2006

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 03 Mar, 2015

    Just as phenomenal as always. I'll go ahead and mention that Mel Gibson viking flick again since the world would be a better place with that existing. Mel Gibson knows how to make a film brutal, beautiful, incredibly paced and just about everything else a great movie should be. If he got a chance again people would realise that he has the potential to be one of the best directors working today.

  • The Order 2003

    Watched 01 Mar, 2015

    I read some quote somewhere about the life being sucked right out of this thing. That's exactly what is up. It's lifeless and even Heath can't really bring anything to it. The effects are horrible as well.

  • Casino Royale 2006

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 28 Feb, 2015

    Incredibly paced with fantastic action scenes throughout. It's one I can go back to again and again.

  • Inherent Vice 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 25 Feb, 2015 3

    I watched this on Wednesday and I haven't really been able to write anything about it until now. Not sure that I am able now, either, as a matter of fact.

    Inherent Vice is pretty much unlike anything else I've ever seen. It's got its own tone and atmosphere, working on a different level than other films. I can't really wrap my head around it and I'm not sure exactly what it is or why it affected me the way…

  • The Wrestler 2008

    ★★★★★ Watched 23 Feb, 2015

    Just as fantastic as ever. Rourke gives one of my favourite performances of all time. So phenomenal.

  • The Sunset Limited 2011

    ★★★½ Watched 22 Feb, 2015

    Basically just two good actors doing good work. Sam Jackson is fantastic as always but Jones isn't up to quite the same level. He is good though, it's just that Jackson will beat most guys on most days.

  • This Means War 2012

    Watched 14 Feb, 2015 3

    Is there a website where you can order the screenplay formulas for this kind of film? Just type in a couple of names and maybe a prop or two and the website spits out a screenplay for you, title and all.

  • Nine 2009

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Feb, 2015

    This is a serious case of me not getting the hate. Is it all because it's based on 8 1/2? Come on, get past that and see the movie for what it is. It's fun, it's big, it's loud and it's got DDL. You never, never go wrong with that man.

    It looks gorgeous too, and that's on a dvd, so I might need to pick up the blu just to see how amazing it can look. It looks good…

  • Gone with the Wind 1939

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Feb, 2015 8

    I did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did. It truly is an epic. It looks fantastic and it's got some slightly more brutal touches than I would have thought for the time.

    I did not like the way the slaves were portrayed. Very simplistic and some of that is probably down to the time it was released but there was no need to portray them the way they were.

    The performances apart from that are pretty…

  • This Is England 2006

    ★★★★½ Watched 12 Feb, 2015 8

    I've honestly never seen anything quite like it. The friendship in this film is so honest and beautiful. Just the way they open up and let everything out is amazing.

    Phenomenal performances across the board, everyone is fantastic. I loved the guy who played Woody - he was the man and led the way in the scenes depicting friendship at its most honest.
