    This always lifts my mood, I can't explain what it is about the style of humour that gets me but I love it and wish there were more comedies like this. I'm not sure how they managed to make Peter Sellers playing a Chinese man non-offensive but somehow it works.

    A fun kid's film that was better than I thought it would be. Nothing outstanding but has a nice mix of humour and sentiment, worth a watch if you just want to see a cute animated film.

    The eerie tone and dream like feel of this film is very well done. The ambiguity is frustrating in the best way and leaves you with so many unanswered questions and theories about what happened. A great dramatic mystery that will leave you unsettled and confused, but in a good way. If you like your mysteries to be nicely wrapped up by the end of the film this may not be for you however.

    My favourite film to watch on a rainy weekend afternoon. Spoof/parody films are generally not something I enjoy, but this is very funny. If you aren't familiar with many of the characters that are being parodied the jokes may be lost on you, but if you like old detective films/tv you will probably find Murder by Death a fun watch. A great ensemble cast, I especially like the performances from Eileen Brennan and Peter Falk, and it's always interesting to see Truman Capote on screen.
