2011 DIRECTOR: Bill Condon May contain spoilers! No sparkling? No respect? These are two serious issues at the heart of this cynical, let down of a movie. Don't get me wrong, I'm not the world's greatest fan of The Twilight Saga, but the first two are more than decent, but by the time we get … Continue reading THE TWILIGHT SAGA: BREAKING DAWN PART 1


2004 DIRECTOR: Alex Proyas Isaac Asimov dreamed of robots. Will Smith and Alex Proyas came along and tuned this into a nightmare! What could have been an insightful Sci-fi thriller, revolving around robot homicide and the famous Three Laws with their inherent interpretations or misinterpretations, was turned into one of the most crass Will Smith vehicles that I have ever … Continue reading i,ROBOT

BURKE & HARE (2010)

2010 DIRECTOR: John Landis NOT A PART OF OUR COLLECTION Will we be adding this to our collection? YES John Landis' first film since 1998's Susan's Plan, (Has anybody actually heard of this one?) Burke & Hare also marks the return of the Ealing Comedy, notoriously black and VERY British. The somewhat true story of … Continue reading BURKE & HARE (2010)


2009 DIRECTOR: Brad Silberling NOT A PART OF MY COLLECTION Will we be adding this to our collection? YES May Contain Spoilers!

2005 DIRECTOR: Steven Spielberg May Contain Spoilers! H.G. Well's War Of The Worlds was never done as well as when George Pal made his iconic 1953 classic.  The idea of Spielberg having a go just seemed to be too sumptuous but the result was somewhat different. Instead of opting for a straight forward adaptation, we're given a … Continue reading WAR OF THE WORLDS (2005)


2012 DIRECTOR: McG CINEMA REVIEW Contains Spoilers Will we be adding this to our collection? YES Popcorn: Un-nutritious yet mildly tasty and surprising filling confectionery, often accompanying a film. This film is like popcorn in its purest form. The concept is a simple one. Two super spies, one American with THE most American name possible apart from … Continue reading THIS MEANS WAR


2006 DIRECTOR(S): Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris I have to admit that I never thought that I would see the day that I would like Indie films, but that day has come. In this era of Todd Philips and Judd Apatow comedies, there's something to said for the more gentle humour of films like this. The plot is … Continue reading LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE


2001 DIRECTOR: Joe Johnson May Contain Spoilers! Back in 2010, I wrote a review of this film, a film which I had never really thought much of. It read... "I have never really rated this film. Jurassic Park is one of my top ten films of all time, and "The Lost World" made for a good sequel, … Continue reading JURASSIC PARK III (2001) – REVIEW
