006. Watch the Academy Award Best Film for each year since 1986 – 1986 – Platoon

Seen this before but that was a long time ago. Was just as good as I remember. Obviously there are parallels between this and Apocalypse Now, with the latter being slightly better. It was a interesting watch though when you think of Charlie Sheen now. 8/10

Great film, not as good as the first but good in its own right!

011. Watch a new film for each letter of the alphabet – M – Men in Black 3

We were going to go to the gym but instead we went to the cinema to eat sweets and watch MIB3. It was a great film, exactly what you expect from the series. Funny all the way through until it decides to kick you in the balls at the end. WOW. Would definitely watch again 7/10

011. Watch a new film for each letter of the alphabet – F – A Fish Called Wanda

Watched A Fish Called Wanda the other day. I have to say it was better than I imagined. Im not a massive fan of the Monty Python cast but I think the mixture between a couple of them and the American actors was pretty funny, especially the weird Kevin Kline. It didn’t feel terribly dated like some films can considering it was made in 1988. IMDB give it 7.7/10 I think thats a little high, I’d probably go for a 6.5/10
