STAR WARS SEQUEL TRILOGY: TIME TO HATE THE HATE


In recent years, as in Star Wars since The Force Awakens, we, as in myself, my better half and my teenage stepson have made the trip on opening night to see the latest addition to the galaxy far, far away. We also go with my parents, who I have been with to see every one… Continue reading STAR WARS SEQUEL TRILOGY: TIME TO HATE THE HATE

STAR WARS: PREQUELS Vs SEQUELS…


After watching this video from the rather dubious movie rating site Rotten Tomatoes, a site who's impartiality has been called in to question in recent years, I felt the need to compose a short response... https://youtu.be/FzNZS7-Hsdc "It's a tough one. Whilst would I concur with his choices generally, I also agree that the Prequel's crowd… Continue reading STAR WARS: PREQUELS Vs SEQUELS…

WAS THE 3D WORTH WAIT? STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS COLLECTOR’S EDITION.


Take us back to December 2015. Star Wars bursts back on then big screen after a ten year hiatus and The Force Awakened for us at least, in IMAX 3D. Or so were were told. After paying a premium ticket price for "The IMAX Experience", disappointment was to ensue. Not with the movie itself, which… Continue reading WAS THE 3D WORTH WAIT?

MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III


2006 DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams May Contain Spoilers! The Mission: Impossible franchise has been utterly inconsistent in all but a few ways. The first is that Tom Cruise's Ethan Hunt is the star throughout and some of his sidekicks run though, notably Ving Rhames but besides that, nothing. Beginning with Brian De Palma's intelligent thriller back in… Continue reading MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE III

STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS (3D)


2013 DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams Contains MASSIVE Spoilers! CINEMA REVIEW Will we be adding this to our collection? YES The 2009 reboot had established the relationship between Kirk (Chris Pine) and Scotty (Simon Pegg) and then ruined it by having a stupid sequence in which Mr. Scott is sucked up into a plumbing system. This is a recurring theme with… Continue reading STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS (3D)

SEVEN HOURS TILL DARKNESS…


Just seven hours to go until the I finally get to see the twelfth and latest instalment of Star Trek, Star Trek Into Darkness. My feelings on the 2009 reboot are clear, with my views on J.J. Abrams equally so but my hopes, certainly from the trailers and reviews are strong but still, when it comes down to… Continue reading SEVEN HOURS TILL DARKNESS…

STAR TREK (2009) – REVIEW


2009 DIRECTOR: J.J. Abrams Contains Spoilers! DVD Review Not to much has changed since my review back in May, but its second viewing did improve it somewhat. Unfortunately, it DIDN'T improve the plot which at several points crosses the border into ludicrousness, but I did find it more enjoyable, certainly as a blockbuster rather than… Continue reading STAR TREK (2009) – REVIEW

INTO DARKNESS: STAR TREK HAS ARRIVED…


Well, here it is, the second most anticipated movie of the year behind Man Of Steel, which is just over a month away. Yahoo Movies confirmed this status and it's exactly how I feel about it too. I'm obviously hoping for a better interpretation of Star Trek than the 2009 reboot and the trailers look great but still, this is clearly a blockbuster and I'm… Continue reading INTO DARKNESS: STAR TREK HAS ARRIVED…
