DVD Review: The Raid (2012)

October 8th, 2012

Best action film of the year? Absolutely. Click the blu ray to read my review over at Cinema Retro.

The Black Panther (1977)

September 28th, 2012

I’ve always felt a personal connection to this story, as I was given a newspaper from the day before I was born when I was around ten years old. It was all about Dennis Neilson, and as I grew up in Wolverhampton, I was close to where it all happened. My dad went to the same college as the girl he kidnapped. The film is terrific and well worth checking out now that light has been shed on it by the BFI. You can read my Cinema Retro review by clicking the picture above.

The Legacy (1978)

September 19th, 2012

Another British horror gem unearthed and dusted down by Odeon Entertainment. If you’ve ever fancied seeing Roger Daltrey get killed horribly, this is one for you. Click the pic for my Cinema Retro review!
