Movie Review – The Dictator

Movie Review – The Dictator

I’m a big fan of Sacha Baron Cohen but I must say his films can be hard to watch. I mean I’ve seen all his films to date but I’ve never gone back to re-watch them, and that’s not because they aren’t good.

I went into this press screening feeling so tired! And when I’m this tired my main focus seems to be just getting through it without falling asleep rather than the films itself, which isn’t exactly a good thing!

Seeing a film starring Freida Pinto is always a treat, but not because of her acting ability, but because she’s stunningly hot!

You ever wondered where the term Spaghetti Western came from? Well, they were Westerns filmed in Italy, but pretending to be USA locations.

It doesn’t take much to get me along to see a Liam Neeson film these days! Sure he’s made some stinkers over the years, but in recent times, pretty much since ‘Taken’ especially; he’s been involved in some great films!

DVD Review – Battle Royale 2

DVD Review – Battle Royale 2

I loved the first ‘Battle Royale’ film, even despite its quirky Japanese traits! So I always knew I needed to check out its sequel at some point! But poor old 'Battle Royale 2', you tried so hard, and I mean really hard, but you fell so short!

Movie Review – Starbuck

Movie Review – Starbuck

Like with some of my press screenings, I went into this film only knowing the film’s title. So when the cinema foyer was packed with women, I thought this must be a chick flick to have brought out so many media types of the female persuasion.

Movie Review – A Dangerous Method

Movie Review – A Dangerous Method

David Cronenberg is one of those few directors that you can just say his name and it makes people instantly have their minds skewed about what his next film will be like. Not about, but like.

DVD Review – The Illusionist

DVD Review – The Illusionist

When seeing an animated film that was up for an Academy Award, you would most likely think it would either be from a major Hollywood studio or from one of the amazing Japanese animation houses.
