A power-house performance from Brando and an all-out well cast movie.

Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)

High-seas adventure with the Devil himself at the helm.

The story as such was ok, but nothing special. It felt rather like they went through a check-list of things...

12 Years a Slave (2013)

This was, as many have said before, a good movie...just not an enjoyable one.

Ejiofor portrays Solomon Northup excellently, with just a hint of innocence. I think we...

The Godfather (1972)

First of all, the music in this is amazing. And not just the main theme, called "The Godfather Waltz" (you learn new things every day) but also the background stuff, it's all...

A Beautiful Mind (2001)

I think I've watched this once or twice since its release, but didn't remember much about it past the very basic plot. So youcould say it was a semi first viewing for me...

The Silence of the lambs (1991)

I believe this to be the first "horror" movie I ever saw, even if it's more akin to thriller or crime. Must've been 11, I think, and I was terrified.

But not by...

Moonlight (2016)

Nope, this wasn't my kind of movie either, I'm sorry to say.

All the King's men (1949)

Rocky (1976)

Realized about 15 min in that I'd actually never seen this, which makes this a fortuetous opportunity I guess. I believed I'd seen this and the one with Drago, but it seems I've only...

What, Assassin's Creed? Sure, I like it. It's fun. I skipped Unity but other than that I've played the other big installments. Very much the same thing at times, but I like the history and the...
