  • Saturday Night Fever

    Saturday Night Fever

    ★★★

    Sister was over, decided she wanted to watch it. You forget how narcissistic and bleak this is. Nobody comes of well.

  • ¡Three Amigos!

    ¡Three Amigos!

    ★★★

    German Mercs flying Biplanes and Revolution manifesto. Possibly my first Zapata Western..

  • Flight of the Navigator

    Flight of the Navigator

    ★★★

    Just wanted to check on the greatest end title sequence of my childhood.

  • Tenet

    Tenet

    ★★★

    Destroyer of Worlds

    It gets better.. the jigsaw starts to fit.. I sat back in the visuals more. After reading about the coming  Oppenheimer biopic he been working on, lots of parallels and precursors here… and a monologue. The consequences of ‘good work’.

  • Air Force One

    Air Force One

    ★★★

    Oldman funded, Nil by Mouth. Pure off this. 

    Went to see this in cinema. Everything I remember about this was actually Starship Troopers 4 months later. It’s like the Pullman speech from Independence Day but two hours long. Both times a mate of mine farted in a darken room with impeccable timing at some on screen jingoism. Still coming to terms that Jerry Goldsmith wrote the music for this. It’s good Die Hard clone above all.

  • Spider-Man 3

    Spider-Man 3

    ★★★

    Secret Wars era Spiderman was the Peter Parker I read as a kid. I remember referring to it as the black widow Spiderman outfit as a action figure. I even had UK omnibus of story line, that ended in the symbiotic suit dragging Parker out of the church belfry. So in a weird way this was the film I was invested in. Took notice of in 2007 and wanted to see now.

    It comes with a lot of baggage. The…

  • The Godfather: Part III

    The Godfather: Part III

    ★★★

    Decided to watch this cut over Part III. It’s not much different. Just feels intentionally lessor than the other two. That silent scream on opera house steps is still as impactful as ever.

  • Kindergarten Cop

    Kindergarten Cop

    ★★★

    A K C A B

  • The French Dispatch

    The French Dispatch

    ★★★

    Wow this is the first Wes Anderson film I’ve watch since Darjeeling Limited also in a cinema.

    Could watched a whole film on Simone, Moses and the Concrete Masterpiece. Because think some of these anthologies work and others don’t. Possibly but more grounding in the offices around these stories. Remember when Tim Burton hit the 2000’s and became a parody of (TRAPPED BY) his own style… that.

    All feels very distant. Feels along way from Rushmore and Life Aquatic.

  • Cocoon

    Cocoon

    ★★★

    That’s was alright… what is it with mid 80s Florida Atlantic Aquanaut UFO movies?

    This will always be a double bill with Flight of the Navigator. Think my mates parents rented both video tapes in one weekend.

  • Dreamscape

    Dreamscape

    ★★★

    Great opticals bookend this film that you want to live in for longer. Very Altered Images trick of quiet.. quiet..  (you could be nodding off late at night) LOUD!!! The real world of espionage is little less inspiring.

  • Mission: Impossible

    Mission: Impossible

    ★★★

    Establishing a Mission Impossible like team in the formulaic TV like credits and icing them systematically in the next 20mins is so Brian De Palma. Email Indox Espionage. The Langley scene got over used and endlessly parodied back in the day and has lost its pizazz. But the euro tunnel stuff.. Oooof.. Helicopter vs moon faced David Schneider.
