julia’s eyes | my movie review

March 26, 2013


More often than not European horror movies put Hollywood to shame. It’s a fact that is backed up by the simple evidence of Hollywood feeling a need to remake, in English, any successful foreign movie with a popular celebrity [I won’t call them actors as so many of them simply can’t] and in the process […]

prometheus | my movie review

June 28, 2012


So as you may have realised, the director of the classic [and classic isn’t a strong enough word really] Blade Runner and Alien movies has recently had a new movie out. The man who gave us the great Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, American Gangster, Body of Lies and Kingdom of Heaven [a great movie apart […]

the spy and the dragon | movie reviews

May 28, 2012


I’ve seen two movies over the last two weeks! It’s not good enough I tell you. The first was the David Fincher remake of ‘The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo’, the other was the 1965 classic ‘The Spy Who Came in from the Cold’. I have to say that I didn’t think much of TGWTDT. […]

After his brilliant debut movie ‘Moon’, I felt confident that he would deliver again with his second foray into the science […]

>the rite stuff

June 1, 2011


‘the rite’ is not your basic horror movie. in fact i would say it’s more of a supernatural thriller, and this is not a brainless supernatural thriller. it is in fact a very religious movie. you will find contorting bodies, weird voices, and much hissing spitting freakiness and general unpleasantness [but only 1 f-bomb and very […]

>black swan review

April 13, 2011


darren aranofsky is a director who gives us some unforgettable movies, but the only one i have ever watched is underappreciated ‘the fountain’ which is a true thing of beauty [if a little bit of a mind melter]. his latest offering, black swan, is a strange yet enthralling thing of beauty. i’ve heard it called […]
