Favourites Friday – The Truman Show

The Truman Show (1998) Director: Peter Weir Starring: Jim Carrey, Ed Harris, Laura Linney I got thinking about The Truman Show after a friend at work said how The Adjustment Bureau reminded him of it. I can see where he's coming from, people planning which direction your life will take without you knowing it. I... Continue Reading →

Favourites Friday – True Romance

True Romance (1993) Director: Tony Scott Starring: Christian Slater, Patricia Arquette I watched True Romance for the very first time in the summer of 2009.

Favourites Friday – Predator series

"If it bleeds, we can kill it." Cards on the table time - while I do enjoy the Predator-related films (Predator, Predator 2, Alien vs Predator, Alien vs Predator: Requiem and Predators) I would say that it is the character that I love rather than a specific film. Wikipedia provides this definition of Predator: The... Continue Reading →

"This is Sparta!" 300 (2006) Director: Zack Snyder Starring: Gerard Butler, Lena Headey, Vincent Regan, David Wenham I'm not sure whether, as a girl, I'm in the minority for enjoying this film. Sure, I know girls who have enjoyed the film but not many who would call it a favourite. Simply put, 300 is not... Continue Reading →

Favourites Friday – Blade Runner

Blade Runner (1982) Director: Ridley Scott Starring: Harrison Ford, Rutger Hauer, Daryl Hannah From the opening sequence revealing a futuristic Los Angeles, the film pulls you in as you follow the murky and mysterious world of Rick Deckard. Throughout the film, running parallel to eachother, you feel drawn to Deckard yet know nothing about him.... Continue Reading →

Favourites Friday – Toy Story

I must admit, I am being a bit cheeky with this Favourites Friday. I saw Toy Story 3 last week and as the Toy Story films are a favourite of mine (and it is Friday) I thought I'd have Favourites Friday all about the Toy Story series. Toy Story series (1995, 1999, 2010) Directors: John... Continue Reading →

Kill Bill (2003, 2004) (For the purpose of this post, I'm going to refer to both parts as just 'Kill Bill'.) Directors: Quentin Tarantino Starring: Uma Thurman, Daryl Hannah, David Carradine While I wouldn't say that it makes my top 5 films of all time, it is probably in the top 10 or so and...
