  • Alien



    Best of Sci Fi

    Warning - contains nostalgia and meanderings...

    I'll never forget the first time I saw Alien. I was told I wasn't allowed to watch it because it was on late on a Sunday night and I wasn't allowed to stay up.

    But I didn't listen and tip-toed down the stairs and into the lounge to watch it. Defying my (very) strict mother just to watch a movie was a pretty daring thing to do, believe me. So,…

  • Drive



    If you're on tumblr, and you track the film tag, you should know how popular both Drive and Ryan Gosling are. So I'm gonna skip the synopsis bit which most people should know by now and jump straight into why I loved this movie so damn much.

    "If you don't have ability, you wind up playing in a rock band"

    I'm going to come right out with it and say I have never really digged Jazz. That however, is not the same thing as not appreciating it, which I do, and evermore so after watching Whiplash which is as much about Jazz as it is playing the drums.

    I think I have rediscovered how absolutely fucking awesome J.K Simmons is. I…

  • Foxcatcher



    Two things became very clear to me after watching this; the first is that Foxcatcher will undoubtedly become the movie that will transform Steve Carell from being "the funny guy from 40 Year Old Virgin," to an actor with incredible depth, an actor that can take on the serious roles with the best of them - well, at least for me. And secondly, the indifferent attitude I've always had towards Channing Tatum has finally been put to bed. Who knew…
