The hobbit : An unexpected journey [based on the book by]

I really have no idea where to start this review. I mean, there is no point in recapping the plot is there? Either you’ve read the book, or see LOTR, or heard somewhere else that “In a hole in the ground there lived a hobbit” and how he went on adventures with some dwarves looking. […]

Green Street

    Just so you know, this film is called Hooligans, Green Street Hooligans and Green Street depending on where you are.

    Football has never really had a good film made about it, not that I’ve seen anyway. I mean most people enjoy that Christmas favourite Escape to Victory, but despite having Pele, the football isn’t really that good. Is Green Street any better? Football-wise, I’d have to say yes. But this film isn’t really about football at all. It is about the West Ham firm, the GSE (Green Street Elite), and football fans’ violence and how this all appears to an outsider.

Sin City [based on comic]

It is hard to know how to describe this film, I suppose I could say that Sin City has three stories, each based on a different graphic novel by Miller. Or that it is just an experiment in style and how to make a film look original.

The film opens with soon-to-retire cop Hartigan (Willis) as he attempts to save 11 year old Nancy Callahan from rape and death. I’m guessing you’ve figured out it isn’t a fluffy-bunny film right? Because there is a hell of a lot of violence. In the main it is fairly cartoony, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have impact, and there are a few scenes that’ll make anyone wince.
