    Murder on the Orient Express

    ★★★½

    Classic piece of Agatha Christie, grand acting, setting and scenes with a star performance from Poirot.

  • The Shining

    The Shining

    ★★★★

    Incredible example of perfect atmosphere throughout, a show of complete and utter terror that just builds and builds to so many 'head in hands' moments. Jack Nicholson provides us with an initially likeable and intriguing character soon to be an absolutely terrorisingly unpredictable and maddened ghost of himself; some majestic moments, notably the flashbacks and hallucinations, along with the room 247 incidents. This is not a plot driven film, and so much is left undiscovered and ambiguous (why he went mad, redrum, explanation of hallucinations) that I don't think I could give it above a 4, but nevertheless very atmospheric and enjoyable.

    ★★★★

    Fantastic journey from start to finish, thoroughly engaging with a little effort and dedication to adjust to the story. Beautifully threaded plot structure with a neat, inspiring but bittersweet ending. A real film and story about real circumstances, suffering, sexuality, pain and of course glory! Nice insight into culture and theatre in Spain as well, will definetly be checking out more Latin films in the future. Great experience, a very artistic and expressive account of his life; put the concentration in and it will be worth it.

    Incredible performance from Mads Mikkelsen, exploring the effects of alcohol on daily life, switching cleverly from light-hearted, laugh out loud comedy, to dark humour to complete seriousness and devastation. Thoroughly engaging, pushing the audience through a range of emotions, gaining and losing our sympathy at any unexpected moment. Respectable ending, leaves the characters fates' to one's own imagination!
