    A Perfect World

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    A Perfect World is a surprisingly sweet film โ€” not your standard chase movie by any standards. In fact itโ€™s a film more concerned about the development of the Father-Son dynamic of Costnerโ€™s escapee convict and the young boy he kidnaps along the way, than it is about the thrill of the chase. But it works โ€” I enjoy the films gentle approach to its story and the development of its characters.

    I just wish we had seen more fromโ€ฆ

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Everything prior to the Busby Berkeley numbers is prologue. But once those numbers begin, the film is pure, unadulterated cinematic bliss.

    This is probably my favourite of the Busby Berkeley classicsโ€” mainly because of Cagney, who is magnetic as always, and the guy could DANCE!

    Mystic River

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    Mystic River retains all of its power some sixteen years after its original release. The reason is simple, itโ€™s an incredibly gripping & powerful drama that, in typical Eastwood fashion, is lean and shot with a no nonsense precision. 

    It reminds me of Twin Peaks in someways. A story about a shocking, life changing event, sending shockwaves through a community, and ultimately revealing dark secrets, long since buried by the passing of time.

    The cast is absolutely superb โ€” itโ€™s aโ€ฆ

    The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3

    โ˜…โ˜…ยฝ

    The quiet build-up of tension, the gritty realism and the superb performances from the lead actors โ€” the original Pelham One Two Three had it all. The remake replaces these attributes with a kind-of pop filmmaking โ€” itโ€™s quick, itโ€™s loud and it doesnโ€™t preoccupy itself with realism. Itโ€™s Pelham with a couple of shots of adrenaline, and with a theme park rollercoaster aesthetic for the 21st century attention span.

    I like both Washington and Travolta, but you canโ€™t helpโ€ฆ

    The Taking of Pelham One Two Three

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    A rather perfect slice of 70s cinemaโ€” gritty, thrilling, funny and filled with electrifying (wink wink) performances. Shaw is both menacing and magnetic in equal measure. Matthau gives a terrific performance that may just be my favourite from him, which is saying a lot...

    The film may be simple in terms of its plot, but thereโ€™s a lot of expertise behind the camera to make the film function in a way that looks easy to the untrained eye. This kind-ofโ€ฆ

    Tango & Cash

    โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…โ˜…

    The perfect beer and pizza movie - Tango & Cash was made for those nights where you want to kick back, relax and watch two of the best action heroโ€™s from the 1980s trade barbs, whilst all manner of explosions, pyrotechnics and general chaos erupt across the screen. Pure easy watching fun.
