I do like a list. Here’s what has been watched in January 2017, the first month of this blog. When you look at it like that it’s fair few films!
With my Wolfy rating next to the IMDB one. I try to do my rating before I see the IMDB ones. They are surprisingly close, bar a few, that either blew my mind or that I enjoyed on fun factor alone .
29 films for the start of this blog.
Crack In The World (1965) Wolfy Rating 6.5 IMDB Rating 6.1
Watched this New Years night after everyone gone to bed. It’s on Netflix and just raised above a B-Movie. Good fun sci-fi film.
On the Waterfront (1954) Wolfy Rating 7.5 IMDB Rating 8.2
Can’t believe it took me this long to watch this classic Marlon Brando. I really enjoyed this.
Deep Water Horizon (2016) Wolfy Rating 7.5 IMDB 7.2
Mark Wahlberg and Peter Berg team up again for this real life disaster film. Once you get past the cheesy beginning it all kicks off when they reach the rig. Amazing special effects.
Bad Day at Black Rock (1955) Wolfy Rating 8.5 IMDB 7.8
Amazing film. Such a brilliant performance by Spencer Tracy. Can’t believe I hadn’t seen this and so pleased I have now.
Rolling Thunder (1977) Wolfy Rating 7 IMDB 7
Great war veteran revenge story. Featuring a very young Tommy Lee Jones.
The Sea Wolves (1980) Wolfy Rating 5.5 IMDB 6.3
I so wanted to love this, I enjoyed it but it really wasn’t that great.
Sorcerer (1977) Wolfy Rating 7.5 IMDB 7.7
The remake of The Wages Of Fear. A write will come one day.
The Night of the Hunter (1955) Wolfy Rating 7 IMDB 8.1
I didn’t think it was as good as the reviews, loved the first half then the second half fell apart imho. but still an excellent film for the time.
Hunt for the Wilderpeople (2016) Wolfy Rating 10 IMDB 7.9
This was a perfect family film and all four of us laughed all the way through. Amazing film. Can’t wait to watch again. I love all of Taika Waititi films.
It Came from Outer Space (1953) Wolfy Rating 7 IMDB 6.6
More 50’s classic sci-fi, I had to watch this again.
Thief (1981) Wolfy Rating 7.5 IMDB 7.4
Safecracker gangster flick. Write up should come soon.
Shoot ‘Em Up (2007) Wolfy Rating 7 IMDB 6.7
Drunk after the pub late night entertainment. Silly but extremely good fun
Suicide Squad (2016) Wolfy Rating 5.5 IMDB 6.3
In the words of George Takei I say “OH MY”. This should of been amazing but what a mess. Nice family time though.
February’s watch list is piling up. A few classics and some obscure ones to look out for.
Have fun. Mikey Wolfman
