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
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

2019 DIRECTOR: Steven Knight 50/100 This! From the man who brought us British television hit Peaky Blinders! This! A mediocre film noir which is almost saved by a bizzare yet intriguing left turn twist half way through, which up until this point, was an unremarkable chiche-fest about fish...

2008 DIRECTOR: Dave Filoni May contain spoilers! Coming just three years after Episode III (2005), yet set between Episodes II (2002) and III, The Clone Wars (2008) serves a feature length pilot for what would become the successful Cartoon Network series of the same name. But this would in fact be the second series to bear the… Continue reading STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS
2014 (1999, 2002 & 2005) DIRECTORS: GEORGE LUCAS (ORIGINAL FOOTAGE) & ANDREW KWAN (RE-EDIT) Contains spoilers! A fan edit making waves on Youtube, A Phantom Edit attempts to make the best of what are, whether you like the prequels or not, poorly written and conceived scripts. The execution is weak, acting and direction is clunky and too much… Continue reading STAR WARS: EPISODES I – III: A PHANTOM EDIT (FAN FILM)
1903 DIRECTOR: Percy Stow & Cecil Hepworth FIRST EVER FILM VERSION OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND Painstakingly restored by the BFI (British Film Institute) from a severely damaged print, this is still in poor condition, but for the those interested in taking a look at a small piece of movie history, this is still quite watchable. But there is… Continue reading ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1903) – REVIEW
