Friday the 13th (1980) & The Evil Dead (1981)

Classic Movie

There’s no need to be afraid, though it seems that I have gone all horror on this blog, I won’t! But I just happened to watch Friday the 13th and The Evil Dead, as if it’s such a casual thing for me to watch horror movies now, and I thought they fitted perfectly into the BOT feature. Since I already reviewed Psycho, Friday the 13th and The Evil Dead are a nice follow up as they both represent the later…

Psycho (1960)

Classic Movie

This review contains spoilers but since it’s a classic I doubt I could actually spoil it. Still, if you haven’t seen it, watch it before you read this. Leave it to me to obtain the most shame among the movie blogger community because I’ve literally seen a handful of classics. As I grew up watching the movies from the 90’s, I never really visited the past but I’m trying to change, I really am! So here’s another addition to my…

Driving Miss Daisy (1989)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is this feature’s eighth post. This movie wasn’t originally on my list but I stumbled upon it while doing some extensive reading on the Oscars and collecting valuable data I’m most likely not going to use. Anyway, Driving Miss Daisy won the Best Picture in 1990 against one of my favorites, Dead Poets Society which I re-watched a couple of weeks ago. Surely I had to know what an amazing movie had…

One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest (1975)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is this feature’s seventh post. Last year I started a feature called Back on Track and I wrote six posts during Mondays, and the posts had limited feedback. Blame it on the day, blame it on what ever but I’m coming back to the feature because it is more meant for me rather than others anyway. As a reminder, BOT means watching classics such as The Godfather, 12 Angry Men and My…

BOT: The Outsiders (1983)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is this feature’s sixth post. Since I’m born in the late eighties, I have missed out on lot of the 80’s classics that might have not been as talked about but still worth the time. But now (I have a massive headache and lack of coffee in my system), I don’t even remember how I got to The Outsiders and what motivated me to put it down on my list. Francis Ford…

BOT: 12 Angry Men (1957)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is this feature’s fifth post. While I’m making my way through classics I’ve missed out over the years, I’m also in some ways ticking off movies from the IMDb Top 250 list and especially the top 10 which also includes 12 Angry Men. Movie which I have had on my list for a long time but I guess I needed BOT to finally put me at my place. Directed by Sidney Lumet…

BOT: It’s a Wonderful Life (1946)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is the feature’s fourth post. Since I started BOT with quite an ambitious plan, I had to prepare a lot because I tend to have these moods where I don’t feel like writing at all. So in the fear of forgetting to watch a BOT movie or not being able to write something about it, I watched this ages ago!  I will say this, it would have made a great Christmas movie,…

BOT: My Neighbor Totoro (1988)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is the feature’s third post. Before I start my very positive review on the first BOT animation, I would like to specify that the version I saw was the dubbed English version with the Dakota sisters as Satsuki and Mei (also sisters). I don’t know if this changes a lot but I just know that I myself felt a bit more comfortable with the dubbed version as supposed to the subtitled one.…

BOT: Blade Runner (1982)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track and this is the feature’s second post. I listed Blade Runner as a classic since it first came out 30 years ago (after that there has been two director cuts, one in 1992 and the other in 2007) but I assume it is thought of more as a cult film rather than a classic. But I would think it is a classic, since it has quite the age and because I like the word…

BOT: The Godfather (1972)

Classic Movie

BOT stands for Back on Track, to know more check out this page. First and foremost, my deepest apologies to people for my lack of posts about classics such as The Godfather, I’ve been a bad movie blogger on that front for years now but a big change is gonna come. And what better way to start off than to view The Godfather for the first time ever (I know, shame on me!), movie that I’ve heard so much about…
