Saw this about 30 years ago. Turns out it's even sillier than I remember. Still, some good tunes, and Ozzy Osbourne as a televangelist is a nice touch.

Quite decent. Doesn't pan out quite as you'd expect, although it's early twist has been done before more famously (cough *Psycho* cough).



Based on actual events, but this one just goes to show that reality doesn't necessarily mean it's a good idea to make a movie about it. A dreary presentation that feels lifeless throughout. 



Solid little thriller.

Not sure I'll be able to watch actor Sebastian Stan (the MCU's Winter Soldier) the same way again after this role. Disney+ sure harbours some dark and disturbing shit under the Star banner. A good film if you can stomach it though.

I thought I'd seen this, but on watching it I don't remember any of it. Anyway, it's Hitchcock at the peak of his powers, and Cary Grant was perfectly cast in the lead role.

Not without tension but at the end of the day it's a home invasion thriller where the protagonist spends the bulk of the film trapped in a walk in closet.

Liked this a lot. It gives Millie Bobby Brown more scope to show off her acting range than Stranger Things. It's also good to see an understated Henry Cavill, Helena Bonham Carter showing off unconventional parenting skills, and a perpetually confused Adeel Akhtar.

The funniest fucking thing I've seen in ages! Daniel Radcliffe in what will prove to be his career defining role.

I've also been on a nostalgia kick and have been re-visiting the animated Disney catalogue. I'm mostly not bothering to post these here, but oh boy, this one has no aged well:



I never realised as a kid just how overtly racist this is. And a bit sexist too. 

The remake is probably going to suck, but this is the first instance where I actually understand Disney wanting to remake one of their older films. 

This was fucking uncomfortable to watch.

Quite fun, might even be better than the first one which I don't remember much more about other than being 'okay'. This one is partially based on actual events unlike the first one, which I think added something to it. 



I wasn't sure about this one for quite a way into it. The pacing is not great: the scenes tend toward short and punchy, flitting all over the place seemingly with no rhyme or reason sometimes and done so extremely abruptly. The pace slows down later on as things become clearer, at which point the film finally feels like it's come together and makes sense. Very dark though and based on actual events (with names changed).

OK, gotta admit I didn't know what the fuck was going on for large parts of this movie, but it's got that cool mysterious sci-fi vibe like Close Encounters of the Third Kind or Arrival or the 1970s Quatermass.

Burt Lancaster becomes more surreal and less attached to reality as he "swims" home. And he looked incredibly fit for 53!

Cute but weird, and somewhat cruel (the cruelty is all simulated - the dog wasn't harmed!). Follows a gormless dachshund as the link between number of different owners in this compilation movie. Features Julie Delpy, Ellen Bursteyn, Kieran Culkin, and best segment goes to Danny DeVito. Be warned: DON'T watch if you're a sensitive animal lover.

Nicolas Cage plays himself in this manic, self-referential self-parody comedy. Brilliantly nutty.

Not the most compelling movie you'll ever see, and Jimmy Stewart is entirely unconvincing as a baseball player, but he's right on the mark as a pilot as he'd been one during WWII, and eventually retired from the air force as a brigadier general. The planes are excellent too, if you're a plane nerd. These are of the forgotten generation between the B-29 which finished off WWII and the B-52 which is still flying today, and show off some of the engineering and designs used as bombing went from conventional to nuclear. Harry Morgan (Colonel Potter from M.A.S.H.) also pops up.

Not the best received film back in the day, but an intriguing little sci-fi mystery. 



Perhaps a little too meta for its own good, but very funny. Feels like Knives Out directed by Wes Anderson.

Uneven anthology movie written by (and starring) Stephen King with George Romero. There's a few more interesting names here too - Leslie Neilson, Ted Danson, Adrienne Barbeau. I don't think it's aged all that well.

Nice close-up photography of ants, but otherwise a fairly standard 70s doomsday sci-fi.

A largely forgotten adaptation of a P. D. James novel. Supposed to not do the book justice, but having not read the book, I rather enjoyed it. Great atmosphere. Something like a country noir. 



I've not been posting re-watches lately but I thought I'd include this one, since I liked it more this time. I didn't dislike it before, though it is a touch watch. A piece of must see British cinema though. 



A very quirky crime comedy, which the RYM genre police say isn't a comedy. 



Very obviously made to capitalise on Dirty Harry, but it's a fun action crime thriller, with Charles Bronson taking on the cop who plays by his own rules.
