Wow. This is such a great film. I mean, it is so intense and gripping that I never once wanted to look away. It tells the story of a group of people caught up in the riots in Detroit in 1967, and how police corruption and racism resulted in murder and horrible terrible injustices. I’ll […]
Many years ago I read the first book in the Stephen King series which inspired this film. I guess the fact that I never read any more in the series says enough of what I thought about the book. But I was confused when I saw the trailer for The Dark Tower and it looked […]
I really wanted to love this film. It has Charlize Theron kicking ass and looking awesome. Its got cool action scenes. Unfortunately it just isn’t a great film, it isn’t even a very good one. It is an average enough film that goes on too long and only does what loads of other films have […]
For a film described by IFCO as only containing “moderate” violence Dunkirk certainly packs a punch. The opening stars quiet, but tense, but quickly explodes into action and violence. And remains tense. IF I had to pick one word to describe the film, tense would be it. You watch the whole film waiting for the […]
Peter Parker, with the help of his mentor Tony Stark, tries to balance his life as an ordinary high school student in New York City while fighting crime as his superhero alter ego Spider-Man when a new threat emerges. (IMDb) It sure does seem like there has been a hell of a lot of Spider-man […]
After being coerced into working for a crime boss, a young getaway driver finds himself taking part in a heist doomed to fail. (IMDb) Starting off with a bank job and car chase through the city, the action never stops in this film. And neither does the music. It has a fantastic soundtrack. It also […]
There is really very little to say about this film. It was entertaining enough while watching it, but it wasn’t a gripping or wildly entertaining film. Perfectly suitable for a dreary wet afternoon’s entertainment. It made me laugh in a couple of places, and I always like Brendan Gleeson in any role1 So yeah, I’m […]
From the title of this film you’re probably going to expect some bitchiness and maybe hairpulling. Well you get that, plus a whole heap of brutal brutal fighting. Veronica and Ashley were friends at college, they haven’t seen each other in years when they bump into one another at a party. Their meeting does not […]
After the bore-fest that was Grim vs Grimmer I didn’t hold out much hope for Wonder Woman. I had thought Gadot was one of the best things about that Supes v Bats film, but DC really haven’t had a great run of superheroes films recently. I didn’t even bother with Suicide Squad. I also don’t […]
Everything is suspect…everyone is for sale…and nothing is what it seems.
Where the warrior spirit was born.
A rebellion built on hope.
