Bio: My rankings reflect how much I personally enjoy a film and how likely I will want to re-watch them. This is why some films that I can admit as being 'classics' will get low scores as I just didn't enjoy them and I don't feel a need to try and critique them objectively here.

88 T10 American Crime Story (2016) - Mar 21, 2017
"I don't tend to enjoy traditional tv series but find I have more time for the ones that come across as 8-10 hr films and People vs OJ is a top quality example of this. I can't be certain how historically accurate it is, but as I watched a number of scenes so much of the real life events came flooding back and this nostalgia probably contributes to this score. Paulson, Brown and Vance are outstanding and easily make up for the awful performance from Cuba as OJ. Overall a highly entertaining drama"
73 T6 The Night Manager (2016) - Mar 21, 2017
"Visually impressive, The Night Manager is a decent and largely effective spy thriller but one that failed to reach the heights it seemed initially capable of. Surprisingly the acting from the leads wasn't the best with neither Hiddlestone or Laurie producing their best work. Laurie in particular was frequently either a little too comedic or overly intense and didn't convince as a billionaire arms dealer. Olivia Coleman on the other hand was perfectly cast as the determined british agent."
69 T5 Cape Fear (1991) - Mar 21, 2017
"An effectively creepy and tense film, with De Niro's performance as the two steps ahead antagonist being the primary reason. I have to admit that a lot of the power of the film has been lost due to the genius of the 'Cape Feare' Simpsons parody episode. In simple terms this film is far less scary when you are smirking through memorable scenes and wishing with all your heart that this time De Niro would step on a rake. "
79 T8 Fallen (1998) - Mar 21, 2017
"Despite it's flaws I really like this film. My biggest problem is it immediately reveals the nature of the killer while we then have to wait half the movie for the protagonist to catch up. I believe it would have been far more chilling to uncover the mystery alongside Hobbs. That said, Fallen provides a creepy concept with many memorable scenes and should appeal to those who enjoy darker material. There are pacing problems towards the end but the climax is strong and fits the movie perfectly."
