  • Cat Among the Pigeons 2009

    ★★★★ Rewatched 30 Oct, 2014

    Brilliant cinematographer Cinders Forshaw works celluloid magic with this autumnal tale of terror in a girl's private school. Jolly good fun, too.

    A note on the viewing: Viewed in HD at 2K from a newly remastered High Definition version scanned in from the original Super 16mm negative, complete with newly corrected colour and lighting levels. The image is beautiful to behold when viewed on a large screen and compared to previous SD versions it is like seeing the film for the first time. Remarkable. On the down side, there are a handful of scenes where grain/noise gets a little too persistent but this never lasts long.

  • A Nightmare on Elm Street 1984

    ★★★★ Rewatched 29 Oct, 2014

    Wonderful to see this Wes Craven classic on the big screen again!

    A note on the viewing: Digital Cinema. 2K. Viewed at the Prince Charles Cinema, London.

    For years Nolan has endeavoured to strive further and make a truly special blockbuster. With Interstellar he has at last done it.

  • The Imitation Game 2014

    I doubt 2014 will see a better film.
