Movie Review - The Avengers

Movie Review - The Avengers

I’ve been a massive comic book fan since I was a kid, and not that I ever really cared that others weren’t into them, it still has been nice this massive resurgence towards comic book movies these past 10 years or so.

DVD Review – Kevin Smith, Too Fat For 40

DVD Review – Kevin Smith, Too Fat For 40

I love Kevin Smith films, but what I may love even more than his films, are his Q & A specials he puts out every couple years!

Movie Review – The Way

Movie Review – The Way

As ever I went into this film not knowing anything about it, and I even thought the title was different than it was.

Movie Review – The Kid With A Bike

Movie Review – The Kid With A Bike

I’ve seen lots of French films over the years, but I don’t think many Belgium ones, which is exactly where this film was from.

DVD Review – Lost Highway

DVD Review – Lost Highway

'Lost Highway' was of course confusing and very intricate with the meanings behind every scene, just like other David Lynch films, but it was still damn interesting and intriguing!

DVD Review – Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me

DVD Review – Twin Peaks, Fire Walk With Me

Well, it might be safe to say that 'Twin Peaks-Fire Walk With Me' is easily on my list of worst films ever made! Words don't even come close to describing how bad it was, and it was so overly physiological and wanky just for the sake of it.

Movie Review – A Separation

Movie Review – A Separation

When a film wins the best foreign film prize at the Academy Awards you have to think that it’s not only going to be good, but great! So when I got my invite to the press screening for the 2012 winner, I was quick to say yes!

Movie Review – American Reunion

Movie Review – American Reunion

Can’t believe it’s been so many years since I first sat down to watch the first ‘American Pie’ movie! Also can’t believe they are still making them!

Movie Review – Battleship

Movie Review – Battleship

‘Battleship’ had one of those trailers that made you excited, though made you think it could be all show and no substance. Well, despite it being an over the top patriotic propaganda showpiece for the US Navy, it was a decent film with some pretty cool set pieces!

Movie Review – The Pirates

Movie Review – The Pirates

Trailers can be fickle things, as they can range from representing the film perfectly, completely selling you a false promise of a good film, and even sometimes fully underselling the awesomeness that is the film.
