Dinoshark (2010) #FridayHorror

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

I’ve got a bit behind on blogging my #FridayHorror efforts. I’ve watched some great movies along the way. I even managed to persuade my good lady wife to watch a Hammer film, Blood From the Mummy’s Tomb (1971). I’m not going to attempt to try and catch up, so I’ll just dive straight in with […]

Having now watched this twice, I can say I am eagerly awaiting the Director’s “Gopher” Cut.

Sherlock Holmes (2009)

Tuesday, June 8th, 2010

Much to my mum’s disappointment, this is not a review of The Asylum’s Sherlock Holmes, which has recently appeared on shelves next to this more well known effort.

Friday, May 14th, 2010

Is it me or has Robert Duvall put on weight since The Godfather?
I’m not a big war film fan, but I have to say I loved this one. It’s such a fun mix of wartime action cliches with olde worlde quaint English charm.
Jenny Agutter is in here, as is Michael Caine, Duval, Donald Pleasance, Donald […]

Bloodrayne (2005)

Wednesday, May 5th, 2010

I’ve got a backlog of films I need to get onto the blog. It’s actually getting out of hand. As a result of this, and so I’m not playing catch up forever, I’m faced with two choices: wipe the slate clean and forget them all, or make the reviews shorter. I’m not very good at […]

Children of Men (2006)

Tuesday, April 20th, 2010

In this film Bexhill has become a Hell on Earth. As someone who worked there for a couple of years, it’s not really a stretch of the imagination by any means.
I’ve been a fan of Alfonso Cuaron ever since I saw¬†A Little Princess back in 1995. Although a Shirley Temple remake would not normally be […]
