ALIEN: DIRECTOR’S CUT (1979/2003) – QUICK REVIEW


1979/2003 DIRECTOR: Ridley Scott 80/100 Alien is Ridley Scott's first major hit after The Duelists (1977), and one which probably more of a impact if we are honest. This arogorical take on the haunted house set in space where "no-one can hear you scream", the former advert director, probably best known for his Hovis ad… Continue reading ALIEN: DIRECTOR’S CUT (1979/2003) – QUICK REVIEW

CHAPPiE (2015) – REVIEW


2015 DIRECTOR: Neill Blomkamp 75/100 Robocop meets Short Circuit, Chappie is Neill Blomkamp's follow up to District 9 (2010) and Elysium (2012). Both of which have starred Sharlto Copley.

Wanting for drama for a start. Following a duel in which Harvey Keitel's, Feraud was victorious,… Continue reading THE DUELLISTS (1977) – REVIEW

‘NOT QUITE BANNED’ LOONEY TUNES: “TOKIO JOKIO” (1943) – REVIEW


1943 DIRECTOR: Norm McCabe 80/100 Where to start with this one??? Well, first off we must all agree that this is clearly racist, derogatory, defamatory and just damn right ignorant of the Japanese culture to such an extent that even South Park would probably struggle to put this out. Also, whilst this is NOT one… Continue reading ‘NOT QUITE BANNED’ LOONEY TUNES: “TOKIO JOKIO” (1943) – REVIEW
