Considering Fury is a film that clearly sets out to deglamorize war, and to a certain extent is successful in doing so, David Ayer’s tale of an American tank crew at the end of World War II spends an unfortunate amount of time attempting to attract a mainstream […]
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. Hopefully over time it’ll grow into a massive collection of reviews, looking at new releases interspersed with films that are 75 years old interspersed with films starring Bruce Campbell interspersed with films that are exactly 118 minutes in length interspersed with … well, you get the picture. Basically the blog jumps from films currently in the cinema to films released decades ago, depending on what I watch.
I try not to include spoilers, but on occasion there will be some, so apologies in advance if I ruined your day. I avoid them as much as possible with new(ish) releases, but if it’s something like Back To The Future, I think it’s safe to say everyone knows that Marty McFly dies at the end.
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. I also run another blog called Hyperfilm which is basically a home for all the cinema-related bits and pieces I'd blog about here if I wasn't so damn adamant about sticking 100% to reviews.close
