TERMINATOR: DARK FATE (2019) – ANALYSIS & REVIEW


2019 DIRECTOR: Tim Miller 70/100 A lot has been said about this film and indeed, the franchise's return as a whole.

Not a… Continue reading TERMINATOR: DARK FATE (2019) – ANALYSIS & REVIEW

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.

THE COLDEST GAME (2019) – REVIEW


2019 DIRECTOR: Lucasz Kosmicki 29/100 Netflix may have had unprecedented success at this this year's award season, but films like this certainly are not the way forward... Contrived? This is the best word to describe this so called Cold War thiller. At face value it is an intriguing concept. Whist East and West are embroiled… Continue reading THE COLDEST GAME (2019) – REVIEW

THE WICKER MAN (1973) – REVIEW


  1973 DIRECTOR: Robin Hardy "Come. It is time to keep your appointment with the Wicker Man."

But if you are… Continue reading THE WICKER MAN (1973) – REVIEW

AVATAR 2, 3, 4 & 5 -WHY THE DELAY?


After watching Avatar in 3-D for the first time since theatres in 2009, I began to think about the long delay in the production of the sequels. I remembered how long it took to bring the original to the screen, a decade to be precise, with talk of "developing something new and innovative". It was… Continue reading AVATAR 2, 3, 4 & 5 -WHY THE DELAY?
