Little Shop of Horrors

Originally a 1960s movie, which was revived for an off-Broadway musical, then remade by director Frank Oz, this is one of the funniest musicals I have ever seen. The Eighties was responsible for some very strange movies, this is definitely one of those....

Chasing Amy

Kevin Smith’s third film could be considered critically the best film he has ever made. Following from Mallrats, which was panned by the critics yet loved by audiences (after it was released on the home video market), this low budget film was not expected to do much....

Daffy Duck – Duck Dodgers and the 24½th century

This is one of the most famous of all the Looney Tune cartoons ever made, and for me one of the funniest. It's the one that I remember Marvin the Martian from the most. Daffy Duck is so much fun as well....

The Great Race

This is a film that stars some of the classic actors of a golden age of cinema that were capable of doing just about anything. The film is entertaining, albeit long though. It has a humour that everyone can enjoy, from sophisticated wit to silly slapstick humour. This could be one of the most entertaining films I have ever seen....

Iconic Scenes – T-Rex Encounter (Jurassic Park)

This scene has been so perfectly done that it still to this day hasn't been matched. It has a perfect use of a mixture of animatronics and CGI, unlike today where everything would have been CGI. This is what truly has made the special effects stand out....

Iconic Scenes – Airport Scene (Casablanca)

How the Star Wars Prequels story could have been improved

The way Star Wars prequels are right now worked in some points but were lacking in others. I personally found them reasonably enjoyable, bearing in mind I wasn't expecting Oscar winning performances.
