The Godfather Part III serves as proof that movies of the moment can become timeless, but the well dries up long before their legacies are established.
2008 DIRECTOR: Marco Schnabel May contain spoilers! I like Mike Meyers! There, I said it! But The Love Guru like so many of his films, is simply a vehicle for his brand of outlandish, playful and often boady humour and all semblance of class is simply thrown out of the window! So what this film lacks … Continue reading THE LOVE GURU

1963 May contain spoilers! Created as filler to use between major Cinerama performances during the early 1960's, it is rumoured that there were other, rougher cut versions of this as early as 1960, but this, the "final" version as it were, was initially played in the interim before How The West Was Won (1962) hit … Continue reading THE BEST OF CINERAMA (CINERAMA)

A young man made his way through the crowd which had assembled outside the single Pictureville screen, the only Cinerama screen left in the England, carrying a large 35mm spool, giving us a taste of what we where in for that night.

Clearly not satisfied with releasing one of the top grossing movies of 2015, Universal want more, a lot more from their loyal customers. I, like many who pre-ordered the Jurassic World 3D Blu-ray, assuming wrongly, that like almost every other 3D Blu-ray release, that it would include the 2D Blu-ray version as well. Well, it … Continue reading THE JURASSIC WORLD BLU-RAY 3D RIP OFF
Well, it is now less than two months until Star Wars Franchise returns to the big screen for the second time since 1977. Not including various re-releases of course. Not since 1999 when the ill-fated Prequel Trilogy premièred has the universal excitement for a single film been so palpable.

1972 DIRECTOR: Francis Ford Coppola May Contain Spoilers! I first watched The Godfather on VHS back in the late 90's, determined as a teenager, to see what all the fuss was about.
