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
2019 DIRECTOR: Tim Miller 70/100 A lot has been said about this film and indeed, the franchise's return as a whole. Following on from the soft, in more ways than one, reboot that was Terminator: Genisys back in 2015, this is one of those sequels which are really starting to piss me off! Not a… Continue reading TERMINATOR: DARK FATE (2019) – ANALYSIS & REVIEW
2014, 2017, 2019 DIRECTORS: Gareth Edward's, Jordan Vogt-Roberts & Michael Dougherty My ratings of the Monster-Verse so far... Beginning with Godzilla in 2014, the 1998 debacle has been consigned to history, finally a decent westernized version of the Toho classic, Gojira was finally realised. This version of Godzilla was modified not just for the 21st… Continue reading THE MONSTER-VERSE: THE STORY SO FAR… – REVIEW
In a statement released today by EON and the other two production partners, Bond's 25th, as well as Daniel Craig's swansong, outing have been delayed by seven months.

Whilst would I concur with his choices generally, I also agree that the Prequel's crowd… Continue reading STAR WARS: PREQUELS Vs SEQUELS…
...and the films which I have seen this week are...

BLACK PANTHER (2017)… Continue reading QUICK REVIEWS – WEEK ENDING 7/7/18
2001 DIRECTOR: Ridley Scott A TOP TEN FILM! Black Hawk Down is to me, the best war film that I have ever seen. Intense and relentless, it conveys the horror and tactics of modern warfare and more to point, like all great and classic war movies, demonstrates the dedication, skill and spirit that warfare can… Continue reading BLACK HAWK DOWN (2001) – REVIEW
1926 DIRECTOR: Albert Parker Two Tone Technicolor in all its glory! This is it. The first widely distributed Technicolor movie back before we even had sound. This was hardly the first foray into colour, in fact colour almost goes as far back as film itself, as does sound, but it was not until the mid-1920's… Continue reading THE BLACK PIRATE (1926) – REVIEW
The Star Wars Story that nobody asked for, but was is a story worth telling?
In short, NO.
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.
