Collecting, curating, consuming. We rate and review, growing our libraries as we grow ourselves.
There’s no more powerful media than film. It can drive us to tears or hysterics. It can even change lives.
In no particular order, here’s a few of my favourites.
Every man is Rob Gordon. The quintissential underachiever, fucking up every aspect of his life. This film is the ultimate guide to being a man.
Admittedly not a particularly accurate depiction of cold-war submarine warfare, but these films never are. Just look at the awful U-571.
Terrifying radiation scenes, lots of vodka.
“Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn.”— Clark Gable, Gone with the Wind
Space is fucking cool. Apollo 13 is the best film about space.
The last half of the film is spent in devestating tension; I never fail to feel a lump in my throat as the lunar orbiter hurtles towards earth.
