Summer of Scam 2: Criminally Insane

So, starting on June 1st and running to the end of July I'll have a go at watching all these.

And yes, there are rather a lot and no I probably won't watch them all and yes I am planning on quitting my job.

A few of these are rewatches but, with the exception of The Taking of Pelham One Two Three, they are films I haven't seen for a number of years.

I like crime films.

I am accompanying this with a shorts project too.
