    Still a really good film about obsession.

    The Ref (1994) - even better than I had remembered it.

    Frankenstein Unbound (1990); time travel science fiction meets horror with suitably over-the-top performance from John Hurt and Raul Julia. Good for a few scares and even more laughs.

    Yeah, it was really disappointing for me too.

    Scott's new movie, All The Money In The World, is supposed to be much better.

    The wildest ride of the year-Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri. Francis McDormand plays the extremely angry and grieving mother of her raped and murdered daughter whose crime has not been solved. In a year that gave us Wonder Woman, she's the real badass. You're probably familiar with the basic premise of the movie, but you have no idea of the amazing twists and turns this story takes, and the astounding acting of McDormand, Woody Harrelson, and a sure-fire Oscar nomination worthy performance by Sam Rockwell. In turns hilarious and jawdroppingly shocking, Three Billboards seems like a very timely movie that will have you thinking long after it's over. Should have known, however-it's written and directed by Martin McDonagh, who gave us the brilliant In Bruges.

    The Poseidon Adventure (1972) - DVD.
    Riveting 70s disaster film, with great performances by Gene Hackman and Ernest Borgnine. 9/10.
     
  10. Brooklyn - Young Irish immigrant Eilis Lace (Saoirse Ronan) navigates her way through 1950s Brooklyn. Lured by the promise of America, Eilis departs Ireland and the comfort of her mother's home for the shores of New York City. The initial shackles of homesickness quickly diminish as a fresh romance sweeps Eilis into the intoxicating charm of love. But soon, her past disrupts her new vivacity, and Eilis must choose between two countries and the lives that exist within.

    Crown Heights - Excellent and intense tale based on the true story of an innocent man that spent years incarcerated but never stopped fighting for his freedom. A pleasant surprise was the lack of the obligatory jail rape scene that happens in 99% of all films involving the prison system.

    The Comedian - Having already seen DeNiro playing a comedian in The King Of Comedy, I wasn't overly enthused about seeing him tackle this role but once I saw the line up, Edie Falco, Harvey Kietel, Danny DeVito, & Patty LuPone, DeNiro....it seemed to be worth a viewing. A very 'inside' look at the life of a stand up comic, and like most movies dealing with this subject, it's not very funny but it's not supposed to be. Worth a watch but I doubt I'd watch it again, but what a cast!!!

    I'm watching Predator on film four.
    I can't count the amount of times I've seen it.
    Absolute Classic action film IMHO.
    I hear they're remaking it....Oh no.

    I have a story about watching Predator. A few years ago, my friend and I were watching it while my parents were out. When my mum and younger sibling came home, we had gotten up to the scene
    where flayed bodies are hanging from a tree

    Of all the scenes to walk in on us watching!

    I love the film too. Fantastic tension and direction.

    I think it's the best movie I've seen years. Alternately laughing and crying throughout.

  25. Cease Fire in 3-D

    Shot on location in Korea using actual military personnel as the actors, so it’s a bit stiff in that regard. 3-D restoration by the 3-D Film Archive is very nice along with a restored 3 track stereo soundtrack. Pretty cool.
