  • 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!

  • The Nice Guys

    The Nice Guys

    ★★★★½

    Debating whether to give it a 5/5 or not and just decided to conclude on a 4.5. This was epic, a film that isn't hard to watch with great comedy and action with great acting as well. This is a whole new side of Gosling compared to his romance films in La La Land and Crazy Stupid Love. This is something I see myself getting on DVD as soon as I can and I think in the days coming, I…

  • There Will Be Blood

    There Will Be Blood

    ★★★★½

    Crazy film. Really well scripted, directed and acted!

  • Goldfinger

    Goldfinger

    ★★★★½

    My dad's favourite Bond film so we watched this and my favourite Bond film Skyfall last night to compare the two. I really like this a lot and Goldfinger might just be the best baddie in the whole Bond series. Still prefer Skyfall but I am glad I have finally seen this and I look forward to revisiting it sometime in the future!

  • Batman Begins

    Batman Begins

    ★★★★½

    Read a few articles discussing how the Batman series before Nolan came with his trilogy had become exhausted and every release was worse than the one before it. Huge amounts of emphasis is placed on how important this trilogy was to not just the Batman franchise but the whole of cinema itself. Picking out a Nolan who had directed critically acclaimed films in Memento (2000) and Insomnia (2002) and known for his intricate moving pieces of work in which scenes…

  • One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest

    ★★★★½

    Really interesting look at the mental health impacts the nurse has on these patients. Considering this was made in 1975 it is ahead of it's time by many years and it has a great written story which means it deservedly is one of the best films of all time. I heard all over the internet that I needed to watch this so I had to check it out and as a result I really enjoyed this. I will revisit this…

  • Rope

    Rope

    ★★★★½

    Watched this thanks to a recommendation by KJ. Love this a lot, it's only 80 minutes and Hitchcock is a master at suspense.
    If you read this would you be able to comment your favourite film or list of favourite films in the comment section that I should watch, thank you!

  • Rear Window

    Rear Window

    ★★★★½

    Amazing movie with superb suspense and all characters are developed with fine detail. It is visually stunning to watch and it's fascinating how Hitchcock starts of with only James Stewart thinking there was something suspect with this man and then slowly by the end he gets the interest of all the people he is close to (similar to the story of 12 Angry Men in a way). As I watched Psycho yesterday and wanted to watch another Hitchcock, I was…

  • Psycho

    Psycho

    ★★★★½

    I absolutely hate horrors and was shitting it the entire movie so I'm surprised at the end I've given it a 4.5/5. Saying that though that ending itself definitely makes up for the amount of times I had mini heart attacks, the story which builds up to the plot reveal is very well structured and the actors are all sensational. I'm glad I've watched another Hitchcock film (I watched Vertigo a couple weeks ago) and I am definitely going to…

  • The Grand Budapest Hotel

    The Grand Budapest Hotel

    ★★★★½

    Such a spirited and wonderful film. The length is only an hour and a half which means there are no points throughout the film that drags on and that is also due to the incredible acting from this stacked cast. I will definitely be watching more of Wes Anderson's films, as this was a luxury to watch.

  • Black Swan

    Black Swan

    ★★★★½

    Sensational...

  • Donnie Darko

    Donnie Darko

    ★★★★½

    A friend of mine kept nagging me to watch this film and I put it off until today. Then 2 hours 13 minutes later, I may have just watched one of the best films I've ever seen.
