COMPLIANCE REVIEW

Tough to comply with this one . . . When a prank caller (Pat Healy) claiming to be a police officer convinces a fast food restaurant manager (Ann Dowd) to interrogate an innocent young employee (Dreama Walker), no one is left unharmed. The film's theme focused primarily on manipulation and human gullibility. The lengths that … Continue reading COMPLIANCE REVIEW

Had a little rummage through Empire, The Guardian and Time’s best and worst of 2013. Now interestingly, I shared with my friends that I had seen 120 films so far on my Unlimited card.

THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG REVIEW

The desolation of the competition so far. A visual cinematic feast for the eyes. Jackson unleashes a beast of a blockbuster. They’ve done it again darker and moodier than ever.

If we got anything to go by … Continue reading THE HOBBIT: THE DESOLATION OF SMAUG REVIEW
