Hey! I've posted that I've watched 3 films (now 6 - will update my list later) and have been reading, liking and enjoying everyone's reviews.

We want words of wisdom and opinion from you though.

You'll find no wisdom here!

I'm more than happy to share my opinion or answer specific questions on anything I've watched though if asked.

Wouldn't mind your thoughts on First Men in the Moon, B_E.

It's a film i've never seen but the disc has been in my wishlist for eons.

I'll hopefully be able to jot some thoughts down later on... maybe for some of the others too. I'm going to settle in and re-watch Phase IV in a bit - a film I haven't seen for a good few years. One of the problems with writing reviews is that you have less time to actually watch films!

You'll have plenty of time whilst watching Phase IV. You'll need something to stop you nodding off.

Not a fave of mine. Too much microscope gazing and not enough mutant killer ant rampage.

Mars Attacks (1996)



Not really anywhere near as good as my rose tinted glasses led me to believe. Jack Nicholson was good in his 2 roles though.

The stand out part for me was the Martians killing everyone in sight while the translator machine was telling everybody "Don't run! We are your friends!" It's not one of Burton's best movies but it's fun to watch, especially due to the cast involved.

I think it's wonderful, one of my all time faves.

I have a Martian Ambassador figure which i picked up from one of the bargain stores soon after the film came out for a fiver. They go for silly money now.

Day the earth stood still.

One of the most well knowing and iconic b movies of the 50s. Go with a more scientific and realistic approach than most of the other films of the time also the alien is not some big headed monster bent on world domination and destruction but has come to warn and help us. Captures the paranoia of thetime . a true classic. 9.7/10
