The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford [based on the book]

Rewatched : 24th August 2018 And I still loved it. I do think that Casey Affleck looks like an untrustworthy ferret in it, but I think that works for the role. Also Hawkeye is in it! It is a strange sad story, the story of Robert Ford and Jesse James. And I doubt this is […]

Avengers : Infinity War

Given the box office takings I’m guessing you’ve already seen this film. I mean, hasn’t everyone? But nevertheless there shall be no spoilers here, because you just never know do you… If you are a fan of the Marvel ‘verse then you’ll be going to see this I presume, and to be honest you need […]

Se7en

I can still remember going to see this film in the cinema more than twenty years ago. It is one of those films that has always stayed with me. And what’s strange it that although I don’t think I have rewatched it too many times since then((once or twice tops I’d guess)) I remember so […]

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

I’m not quite sure when I first watched Monty Python and the Holy Grail, but I know I wasn’t too young. Certainly a teenager. I’d heard of Monty Python but was more familiar with John Cleese from Fawlty Towers. I think I bought a collected dvd set, although maybe I caught some on the television… […]

King Kong

Rewatched 19th March 2017 – Originally watched December 2005 [imdb_movie_detail title=”King Kong” detail=”plot”] So before going to see the new King Kong film I figured I may as well take a look at the Peter Jackson version. I remember enjoying it, but don’t think I’ve rewatched it in quite a while. And I still really […]

Warrior

First reviewed : 27th September 2011. Latest rewatch Feb 2017. Another rewatch, another bump in the ratings, this one goes from 9 up to 10. It still has the exact same flaws, but I just love this film. It has all the feels. I love it so much. The opening scenes of Warrior feature The […]

Alien

Can you believe that this film is 31 years old? Thirty one years old. That’s as old as I am. And yet it is still as effective as ever. And perfect for the RIP’s Peril on the Screen.

You probably all know the plot; a commercial space vessel’s crew is woken from cryo-sleep midway through their journey home. The ship’s computer has picked up a transmission that may be an SOS call. As they investigate they find an abandoned ship but suffer an attack on a crew member. They retreat to their own ship, carrying their injured member, and ignoring quarantine procedures, they undergo treatment from the science officer. And then things begin to go wrong…
