Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

The Strangers:Prey At Night 3/5 A belated sequel to a minor horror hit from 10 years back this is a surprisingly effective slasher,that gets by a slow first act to end up a creepy and well done horror. Excellent use of some 80's pop tunes and a little homage to 1974's TCM. Not bad at all. Death Wis...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Breakout 2.5/5 Ok if far fetched Bronson thriller, playing a pilot trying increasingly ludicrous ways to free the wrongly jailed Robert Duvall from a tough mexican jail. The Fifth Element 2/5 Colourful but largely inane Luc Beeson sci-fi actioner. At least Bruce Willis as a cabbie looks interested ...

Re: The big Bullets debate : "The Death of Hardcopy"

I don't know about the death of physical media but i do know it's fucking impossible to get rid of stuff these days even for pennies. If it's not limited or oop then it's relist after relist on ebay. I've raised round £800 selling off part of my collection so far, it probably cost me 5 times that. E...

Re: What general film/series have you just seen.. marks out of 5

Richard Harris & David Hemmings are the bomb experts trying to deactivate the bombs. Valachi Papers 2/5 Ch...

A Quiet Place 2/5
Don't believe the hype. Blockbuster horror film with an interesting concept quickly gets stale even though it's only 90 minutes with credits.

28 Weeks Later 2/5
Ok sequel

Eraser 2/5
Arnie is a bad ass witness protection agent up against his mentor turned bandit James Caan. Plenty of action and fast moving but fairly forgettable fare.

Olympus Has Fallen 2.5/5 Another movie that's sat on my unwatched pile for years, this is a pretty generic actioner but has a solid cast and cannot be faulted for entertainment value.like most of these flicks a suspension of disbelief is required. Natural Born Killers 1/5 Serial killers Mickey and ...

Maniac Cop 2 2.5/5 Sequel is a slight upgrade on the not bad original,Robert Davi takes the lead role here as the titular detective on the case Maniac Cop 3 2/4 Bill Lustig took his name of the director's credit for this one,so we have another Alan Smithee film. Surprisingly though the least of the...

As i'm currently going through a mass collection purge,trying to watch movies before getting rid i might try and watch these over a few weeks. Then get rid. Thr...

Superdragon Vs Superman 3/5 Alternate chinese version of Bruce Li's Bruce Lee Against Supermen is a different movie,which a different plot,scenes and alternate fights. It's still as bonkers as the english version, featuring Green Hornet, Batman 66 and Pink Panther music to full effect. It's a terrib...

I nception 3/5 Smart thriller from Christopher Nolan is at times far too clever for it's own good,even after this,a second viewing i'm none the wiser as to a lot of it. impressive effects and a fine cast make this a must see even if i don't get half of it .

The Insanity Being 2.5/5
Early 70's taiwanese basher is your standard evil japs vs heroic chinese epc but has a very entertaining climax which introduces a new fighting style, "spade kung fu" :)

The Commuter 2/5 Liam Neeson's latest by the numbers actioner plays like a DTV thriller at times. Decent cast, (Patrick Wilson, an under used Sam Neil) An hour after watching it you'll have forgotten most of it. Cell 1.5/5 John Cusack & Samuel L. Jackson reteam for another Stephen King adaption.

Poor horror riff on Candyman plays like a DTV movie but strangely got a cinema release. Standoff 2/5...

Exit Wounds 2/5 One of Seagal's last non-dtv movies is typical of the genre,not helped by talentless Anthony Anderson's unfunny mugging throughout.
