    Heat

    ★★★★★

    "Cause she's got a great ass... and you got your head all the way up it!"

    Al Pacino, even though he became an acting legend for playing onscreen gangsters, is at his very best as cop Vincent Hannah in what I believe to be THE movie of the 1990s: Heat.

    Heat is in many ways a modern western with the relationship and evolving mutual respect between Al Pacino and Robert De Niro at its center, even though it takes some…

    The Searchers

    ★★★★★

    Europe has Homer's Odyssey, the Americans have John Ford's The Searchers. The movie is the essence of the American west, it's final scene the essence of moviemaking.

    Aliens

    ★★★★★

    First time watching the 1990 Director's Cut and I must say it's even better than the Theatrical Release I have only seen thus far, which is quite an accomplishment. Aliens (both the 1986 and 1990 version) is one of the best, if not the best, (sci-fi) action movies ever made. Period.

Yet, despite all these flaws, Man on Fire has always been one of my favourite Denzel Washington films, mainly because of Denzel Washington. His performance as Creasy is what saves Man…

    The Stranger

    ★★★½

    “No! He still follows his warrior gods marching to Wagnerian strains, his eyes still fixed upon the firey sword of Siegfried, and he knows subterranean meeting places that you don't believe in. The German's dream world comes alive when he takes his place in shining armor beneath the banners of the Teutonic knights. Mankind is waiting for the Messiah, but for the German, the Messiah is not the Prince of Peace. No, he's... another Barbarossa... another Hitler.”

    Only Orson Welles…

  • Black Narcissus

    Black Narcissus

    ★★★★½

    The greatest achievement of Black Narcissus is that not for a second do you even consider that the film was entirely shot in Pinewood Studios
