Films 201 - 210

The next ten films in the Empire 5-star challenge are:
  1. Guys And Dolls (1955)
  2. La Haine (1995)
  3. Halloween (1978)
  4. Hamlet (1996)
  5. Happiness (1998)
  6. A Hard Day's Night (1964)
  7. The Haunting (1963)
  8. Heat (1995)
  9. High Noon (1952)
  10. Hiroshima, Mon Amour (1959)
Firstly, apologies for the triple scheduled Groundhog Day over the past three days. I just have an appaulling sense of humour.

As for the rest of the previous ten, there wasn't a film that I thought was below 4 stars which goes to show the strength of the films that I'm currently watching. The biggest surprise was The Gospel According to St. Matthew which was far better than I thought it was going to be. With a run of 5-star films including Grease and The Great Escape towards the end I have been thoroughly spoilt.

On the next ten, hmm. I haven't seen any of them before. I've seen parts of Hamlet which I watched when I was 14 years old for secondary school English, but other than that I'm a five-star-films-beginning-with-H virgin. The film I'm looking forward to the least is Halloween which may well cause many sleepless nights waiting for Michael Myers to arrive. I'm looking forward to Heat (everyone loves a gangster movie, right?) and I know that A Hard Day's Night is about The Beatles should be interesting.

Finally, keep an eye on the "Schedule" module at the bottom which notes the next ten posts coming up, including review dates. This will also include several new film reviews on movies that have just been released so watch this space!

Until next time!


  1. Halloween is one of my all time favorite movies...and the beginning of my love of Jamie Lee Curtis. If you ever have time you should watch the History Channels show, The Making Of Halloween. It is truly a fascinating story of how this great movie was made...and how cheaply!!

    Heat is a good Al Pacino-Robert De Niro flick.

    I have not seen any of the rest on this list...looks a like a learning experience for you!

    1. Interesting you mention Halloween because it's the film I have ready to watch this evening. As a self-proclaimed scaredy cat, I'll admit I'm not looking forward to it as much as I ought to. I'll give the Historys Channel show a watch after the film if I can find it.

      Having watched La Haine, I'd recommend it even if just for the ending.

      Other than that, as I said, I'm as much in the dark about them as you!
