  • filmlog: Le Boucher (1970)
    Tense Hitchockian thriller about a school teacher drawn into romance with a potential murder. I'm surprised this hasn't been remade in some shit American version directed by Adrian Lyne and featuring a serious Meg Ryan.
  • filmlog: Relative Strangers (2006)
    Actually the film does feature one good joke which happens after the titles and there's a great cameo from Ed Begley Jnr. I do wonder at what point they realised they couldn't hook Ben Stiller...
  • filmlog: Jurassic Park (1993)
    Still works after all these years because the film is really about the humans rather than the dinosaurs, which are still extraordinarily effective. I haven't seen it in years and was hooked throughout. The performances are lovely.

    There are far more than I thought although do 'Never Say Never Again' and 'Octopussy' really count?
