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

The Thunder Kick (1974) Interesting basher with a good supporting cast and some pretty vicious fights somewhat held back from first class appeal thanks to poor choices for male lead (Larry Lee) and main villain (Yukio Someno). Early on, James Nam has a fight with Bolo, and they would have made bett...

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

BlackKKlansman 3/5 Decent Spike Lee effort based on a 70's true story of a young black policeman (played by Denzel's son) who via telephone conversations fools the local Ku Klux sect into thinking he's a rabid white supremist. He gets his jewish white partner Adam Driver to pretend to be him in fac...

Re: What Have You Just Ordered or Received?

No, serious. It's on the back of the slipcover (which isnt sealed) and I'm not sure if I can peel it off without ruining the case, thats all. It came out over 6 months ago and was met with almost universal praise as an excellent release- so "wait for reviews" was sorted early.if you are into your s...

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

Goodfellas (1990) **½ I know I'm in the fucking minority here, but I find this fucking gangster epic to be overlong and fucking overrated. I actually prefer fucking Casino, which is fucking longer, but fucking faster, and more involving, so fucking sue me! Henry Hill is a total fucking dick; he sta...

Mile 22 1.5/5 Elite black ops team are tasked with getting police officer Iko Uwais to a helicopter and to America, on their way they have numerous obstacles trying to make sure that doesn't happen. Really poorly done actioner, Mark Wahlberg is a charisma free zone in the lead, Lauren Cohan is gorg...

Night Of The Demon 4.5/5 Superb b/w british horror/thriller puts todays modern equivalents to shame- it's brisk 96 minute running time flys by as skeptical Dana Andrews refuses to believe he'll die 3 days from being tricked into accepting a cursed parchment.

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

Predator 2 3.5/5 Solid follow up to the classic original sees the Predator action move to the big city- gung ho cop Danny Glover and his team (including Bill Paxton) are blocked at every turn by Agent Keys played by Gary Busey. Tough, violent & entertaining- the 4k UHD disc does a good job of resol...

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

Unfortunately the Predator and Jack Ryan sets are both digipacks. I can't sell a disc on its own and leave the film's name plastered all over the packaging. An incomplete set is worse than having a film I won't watch. is Predators that bad? i haven't seen it for years and i vaguely recall it being ...

Box sets are a pain in the arse sometimes.

I want Predator, and Predator 2, but not Predators.

Buy the trilogy set, you'll get at least £15 for Predators disc only and the Digital codes . Result= Predator/Predator 2 a tenner each :)

Terror (1978) 2/5 Not bad late 70's british horror from Norman J Warren has a Hammeresque feel at time, let down a little by some tiresome soft porn "comedy" sequences Goosebumps 2.5/5 Not bad teenage supernatural fantasy, let down for me by Jack Black, i think he's fucking awful and lets down most...

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...
