  • In Bruges

    In Bruges

    ★★★★½

    This is effectively Voldemort vs Mad Eyed Moody with Fleur Delacour spectating. Super good film that you should watch but a bit dark looool.

  • The Social Network

    The Social Network

    ★★★½

    Don't really understand why many people consider this Fincher's best piece of work. Zuckerberg is just presented as a wanker with no social skills as he burns down every bridge he has connected to him as the films goes on. If you don't mind watching Jesse Eisenberg (who is just irritating to watch) for two hours portraying a door knob then fair enough but seriously this isn't as interesting as it seems in my opinion. Just let down on so…

  • Shaun of the Dead

    Shaun of the Dead

    ★★★★½

    Only one left for me to complete in the Cornetto trilogy! Didn't enjoy this as much as Hot Fuzz but I'm not going to act like this isn't still amazing and Edgar Wright is such a fun director to watch. Watching films at the moment is becoming addicting but constantly entertaining because there is this and so many other good moving pictures on the market!

  • City of God

    City of God

    ★★★★★

    Probably the best film I have seen in a very long time. From start to finish the rapid editing combined with electric performances is a thing of beauty as we watch through the story unfold through the eyes of photographer Rocket. It starts off in the 60's and then spans the 70's and 80's decades as we watch the rise of Lil Ze and everyone living in the City of God. Such a brilliant film and would recommend to everyone to watch!

  • Love Actually

    Love Actually

    ★★★★

    Christmas Challenge- Film 12/31
    I saw the cast at first and I thought it was pretty stacked but I didn't realise how stacked with well known actors it was. At first this is hard to follow because there are so many different people and relationships but you ease into it as the time flies by. Hugh Grant as prime minister is hilarious and the cameos by Rowan Atkinson brightened up my day a lot. I would give this maybe a…

  • Elf

    ★★★★

    Christmas Challenge- Film 11/31
    Seen bits of this all over my childhood but I have never finished it completely and I am so happy I have finally watched it. First half consists of a lot of funny moments and the second half is heart warming. I can now see why this is a staple family Christmas film and one that I will re visit every year for sure!

  • Hot Fuzz

    Hot Fuzz

    ★★★★★

    There are times when I am proud to be British. Seeing this brilliant cult classic directed by Edgar Wright gives me another reason to love the country I live in. I love the cinematography, the use of older characters as everything nowadays seems to be centralised on extremely young characters, the location as it captures a normal British village/town and most of all, the use of violence. It is cartoonish to an extent but there is something which make this…

  • Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

    ★★★★

    One word to describe this:
    WILD!

  • Lethal Weapon

    Lethal Weapon

    ★★★★

    Christmas Challenge- Film 10/31
    This was an amazing ride. Story is written by Shane Black so of course it's strong and this clicked well with me, I can see why they managed to make a series of films out of this. Also fits into the Christmas challenge so it's another win win in my books. Check it out if you haven't!

  • Do the Right Thing

    Do the Right Thing

    ★★★½

    Liked how everybody is in the wrong in this. The only problems I have is Spike Lee's acting and I just had such high expectations and didn't enjoy this as much as so many other people on this website did. Still very powerful and I think I will re watch another time to see if this gets better.

  • Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

    ★★★★

    Christmas Challenge- Film 9/31
    Following watching 'The Nice Guys' which I loved I decided to check out the director Shane Black. This looked like a good watch and also is able to go in my Christmas challenge so this worked in many ways. The story in Nice Guys is an upgraded version of Kiss Kiss Bang Bang but by no means it is a bad film at all. I think I could have also got a lot more out of…

  • The Blues Brothers

    The Blues Brothers

    ★★★★

    Carrie Fisher as the mystery woman might just be one of the greatest characters in the history of cinema loooool!
