  • 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 Master 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 11 Feb, 2015 2

    It keeps getting better every time I watch it. One of my favourite films by now, probably dancing around somewhere in the top 20.

    Everything, absolutely everything is magnificent in the Master. The score is one of the all time greats - it is fantastic. And the song selections throughout are gold, just golden gold.

    PSH singing Slow Boat to China to Joaquin had me like nothing else this time. It will live on forever, it's one of those moments.

  • Pulp Fiction 1994

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 01 Feb, 2015

    Looks amazing on blu and it will probably never get old.

  • There Will Be Blood 2007

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 25 Jan, 2015

    Don't get much better than this. The burning oil scene is as purely cinematic as it gets. Phenomenal, amazing.

  • The Last of the Mohicans 1992

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 16 Jan, 2015

    Day-Lewis with a badass performance, bringing the truth and the real emotions that no one else could have brought like him in this film. Michael Mann was in top form for this one. It looks amazing and it never really slows down. Everything is in perfect balance. And what a score..

  • Boogie Nights 1997

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 14 Jan, 2015

    A fantastic film that goes through all sorts of emotions and interesting characters. It's sort of epic and sort of low-key and it's just amazingly well-made.

  • Killing Them Softly 2012

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 05 Jan, 2015

    Gandolfini makes so much more with his character than he should be able to. Incredible performance.

    A modern classic. So stylish, badass and it packs a mean punch. I was even on board even more with the heavy commentary looming over everything. Pitt smashes everything with his last line of dialogue. That's how you wrap things up.

  • True Romance 1993

    ★★★★★ Watched 03 Jan, 2015 5

    Even the poster ranks among the best ever.

  • A Most Violent Year 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Dec, 2014 2

    This was a fantastic surprise. It wasn't what I thought it would be at all. It sort of turned my expectations on their head and delivered something that I had not seen before. Talking about that would spoil it, so I won't go into details.

    For overall impact and atmosphere this would be to 2014 what Killing Them Softly was to 2012 and Out of the Furnace was to 2013. Not saying they're necessarily similar in story or anything like that, but there is a certain pace and atmosphere to them all. Oscar Isaac is a badass.

  • Blue Is the Warmest Color 2013

    ★★★★★ Watched 02 Dec, 2014

    Go here for your acting masterclass. Kechiche is not the greatest director out there from the looks of things. He loves closeups a bit too much but the actors make it work. Exarchopoulos and Seydoux are sensational, phenomenal, magnificent.

    It brings the truth, goddamnit, and that's all we need.
