Though he was undoubtedly a big star in the 1980s and 1990s, most of Kevin Bacon’s recent appearances in UK cinemas have come as a result of his employment by mobile network EE as a hawker of phone and broadband products in adverts. He’s still very much a […]
I started the blog for the simple reason that I wanted to keep a log of the films I watched, and also because I wanted to write a few thoughts about them.

I doubt I could make a short list of my favourite films, but here’s a random A-Z of movies I love: Aliens, Boogie Nights, The Conversation, Diner, The Empire Strikes Back, The French Connection, Ghostbusters, Hud, The Ice Storm, Jaws, Koyaanisqatsi, Lone Star, Mystic River, The Naked Gun, Oldboy, The People vs Larry Flynt, Quadrophenia, Russian Ark, Stand By Me, Tokyo Story, The Untouchables, Vertigo, Winter’s Bone, X-Men, Yellow Submarine and Zabriskie Point. I hasten to add this doesn’t mean I prefer Ghostbusters to Goodfellas or Diner to Dazed and Confused. It’s just a list.
Anyway, thanks for stopping by, and I hope you enjoy your time here.close
