Top 25 films, to procrastinate revision

I'm feeling good, I'm so close to the end of school (ever) that i can practically taste it.
if you observant you will have noticed a list of 25 film, if your a film buff you will probably recognise these as the top 25 films on the IMDB. reason, I've decided i cannot become a film student if i haven't watched the top 25 films on IMDB, I've already watch a majority of these and those are the one that are white with a rating at the end out of ten, the ones i need to watch are marked in green and I'll put the rating i expect at the end, when i watch them they'll change to red and have my actual given rating. if I'm done pretty quickly I'm move onto the next 25 and if i have the 25 after. so by the end of summer i might have watched the IMDB top 75. i think in uni I'll start to aim at watching all the films in the 1001 films to watch book

RUBBER

WHAT THE FUCK DID I JUST WATCH

11/10

Monday

machete is fucking awesome

you wanna film with just fun action and gore then you want machete, which btw is pronounced ma-chet-tay. with complete lack of storyline steve seagal, rober deniro and danny trejo, what more could you want. 9/10

on the other hand, the prestige i also watched last night, was a reguarly placed big teist film directed by christopher nolan, it was beautiful and well done and hard to guess and made you go wow at the end with any major action, fun or gore. 7/10

Wednesday

my somewhat unhealthy obcession with denzel washington

coursework season is nearly over, 2 more days then i can do what i want, and revise.

over the past couple of months i've picked up a liking for films staring denzel washington, which are films usually directed by tony scott. to be fair all the films follow the same storyline. denzel washington is normal bloke, somthing kinda related happens, an explosion, bad things, dezel washington is the hero. but they are all a little different and i love them all in their individual ways. i think everyone needs to face the fact that denzel washington is pretty amazing. so the 2 most recent films i've watched,

The Taking Of Pelham 1, 2, 3: 7/10
Man On Fire: 9/10

suprisingly there are a lot more films of his i need to watch, since they release about 2 a year.
