Seven - 2 Disc Set [DVD]
Seven - 2 Disc Set [DVD]
"My favourite film ever, and an absolutely fantastic psychological crime thriller. Every actor is fantastic, and this is full of so many twists that you don't see coming.  Great directing - a must see!"
The Machinist [DVD] [2004]

"Christian Bale is remarkable in this, and is outrageously thin. Such dedication for a film, and this has you guessing the whole time."
Shutter Island [DVD] (2010)

The Dark Knight (Two Disc Special Edition) [DVD] [2008]
"Believe the hype. Anyone that says this isn't good is lying. Bale, Ledger, Caine, Goldman and so on. Fantastic film that is more than a superhero movie. Christopher Nolan is a great director !"
Memento [2000] [DVD]
Memento [2000] [DVD]
"More Christopher Nolan. Amazing film, told backwards, with the ending at the start. Sounds wrong, but wow! Some will find this confusing, but once figured out it really is special."
Fight Club [1999] [DVD]
Fight Club [1999] [DVD]
"This is an absolute classic. Fincher does satire and does it perfectly. Needs multiple viewings but is so rewarding."
Hard Candy [DVD]

"Some people don't like this just because of the subject. Not for the feint hearted. Very quiet, but extremely chilling. Raises a lot of questions and lets the viewer decide who to root for."
The Butterfly Effect - Director's Cut [DVD]
The Butterfly Effect - Director's Cut [DVD]
"Firstly, you must watch the directors cut for this to be good. It changes the ending and adds major plot points. Very underrated, Ashton Kutcher's only good acting performance. Very emotional aswell."
The Shining [DVD] [1980]

Into the Wild [DVD] [2007]

"The definition of 'hollywood blockbuster.' Yes, it's a bit silly, but the acting is great and the effects look good even today. Great cast, excellent sci-fi movie."
Garden State [DVD]

"Zach Braff wrote, directed, starred in this and won a grammy for best soundtrack which he made himself. He is very talented and this film is very funny, dramatic and emotional at the same time."
Catch Me If You Can [DVD]

"This really draws you in, hard to believe it's a true story. DiCaprio and Hanks are excellent - this is one of Spielberg's best and is very underrated."
The Game [DVD] [1997]
The Game [DVD] [1997]
"Really great psychological thriller. Michael Douglas is perfectly cast, and this film truly messes with your head. As you can see I am a big David Fincher fan, and he directs this perfectly."
American Beauty [DVD] [2000]
American Beauty [DVD] [2000]
"Really well crafted film. Allows the viewer to have so many emotions, can be really funny one minute then utterly depressing the next. Kevin Spacey deserved his Oscar for best actor!"
The People Vs Larry Flynt (Special Edition) [DVD] [2003]

"This really surprised me, but a great film. A taboo subject, but dealt with brilliantly. Underrated."
Alien [DVD] [1979]

Million Dollar Baby [DVD] [2005]

"Brilliantly directed, brilliantly acted, just brilliant everything. A fantastic cast makes what at first looks like "just another boxing film" into something great."
Reign Over Me [DVD] [2007]
Reign Over Me [DVD] [2007]
"Wow, what an emotional film. Adam Sandler should do many more serious roles because he's fantastic in this. Go into this without knowing much about it, not for the feint-hearted."
American Psycho [DVD] [2000]
American Psycho [DVD] [2000]
"Funny and disturbing at the same time. How Christian Bale didn't get an Oscar nomination for this I'll never know. Quirky - the book is slightly better, though."
The Departed (2006) [DVD]
