    ★★★★

    Another film I'd never seen on a big screen until the projector turned up. A great film, well deserving it's classic status. The creature effects are slick, visceral and hold up really well in the face of more modern effects and the detail of the Antarctic base set is amazing to see.

    ★★★★

    Tense and beautifully shot with a killer soundtrack and some amazing performances. It has a slow pace that ratchets up the tension and then explodes with brutal violence. One of my favourite films this year.

    ★★★★

    Finally watched this on a big screen thanks to my new projector. The film needs no introduction but seeing it large gives it all the move impact. The pace is unbearably slow, almost nothing happens and the ending is obtuse and abstract to the point of stupidity and yet I came away still thinking it was an amazing scifi film.

    ★★★★

    Wry, dark and bleakly funny film about what can go wrong when you make a documentary about something you shouldn't. Not seen it for 15 years and I still remember the joke about his mum not being musical.
