Watched That Sinking Feeling for the first time in 20 odd years last night - lets just say, it helps to be in a pretty forgiving mood, this looks pretty amateurish now, a bit am-dram. I imagine a lot...

I absolutely love World on a Wire. Really retro futurist 70s style to it, like an old Roxy Music album cover. The story is dense but not impenetrable - all about the nature of reality and...

Finally caught up with PT Anderson's The Master. The only thing I'm sure about is that the torrent of one star 'reviews' on Amazon are utter garbage. No film that looks this stunning and is acted...

For me it's the scene with the deformed guy I can't get out my head. She has no empathy whatsoever yet it's the most emotional contact this poor bugger has ever had. Sad, scary, visually unbelievable...

Oh Boy I can't wait for Barrymores Jekyll and Hyde on blu - if ever a movie needed a new transfer it's my old DVD of that one, can barely see what's going on. Should be amazing.
