The Towering Inferno (1974) In my opinion, disaster movies are always disasters, and this one was no exception. A fire in an office block. Boring.
Boxing at the Movies (2013) A run-of-the-mill documentary about boxing movies.
The Young Girls of Rochefort (1967) A musical about two young women looking for their ideal partners and dreaming of life in Paris. Not bad, as far as musicals go, with lively choreography and a lovely use of colour.
Escape from Tomorrow (2013) I really enjoyed this creepy, disturbing low-budget movie which was largely secretly filmed at Disneyland. A married guy, takes his kids round Disneyland, while sneakily trying to follow a couple of young French girls as things start getting a bit weird.
Who Framed Roger Rabbit (1988) I avoided this ever since it came out. I mean, an animated movie about cartoons? Sounds awful. Was actually pretty good.
Pretty Baby (1979) Quite a good atmospheric film about a girl growing up in a New Orleans whorehouse just before they get outlawed. There’s some content that would be impossible to get away with today,and it was quite controversial at the time, but it’s actually a pretty good film.
Tokyo Godfathers (2003) Good Japanese animated film about a trio of bums - an alcoholic, a queen and a kid - who find an abandoned baby and try and find it’s mother. Good fun.
Story of Women (1988) Good Claude Chabrol drama about a woman who gets by, and then prospers, by performing illegal abortions, with disastrous consequences.
Mad Max: Fury Road (2014) Very solid and utterly enjoyable action film, full of exciting kinetic energy.
Week End (1967) I always find Godard a mixed bag. I really like some of his films. This, on the other hand, was one of the ones I couldn’t get into at all. Didn’t like it.
