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…

CALIGULA (1979) – REVIEW


1979 ORIGINAL UNCUT VERSION DIRECTORS: Tinto Brass (Principle) & Bob Guccione & Glo Luiiancar (Additional Footage) May contain spoilers! I was left literally speechless after watching this. What is it? Is it a porn film? Is it a period drama? Is it an art house extravaganza? Well, for certain, it is the one of the most obscene… Continue reading CALIGULA (1979) – REVIEW

2014 DIRECTOR: Ridley Scott May Contain Spoilers! CINEMA REVIEW Will we be adding this to our collection? YES With poor reviews and the fact that I already had my doubts about this project, my expectations were decidedly low about Ridley Scott's interpretation of the biblical epic of Moses and the Israelite Exodus.

2014 DIRECTOR: Peter Jackson May Contain Spoilers! CINEMA REVIEW Will we be adding this to our collection? YES Short and to the point.
