47 METRES DOWN REVIEW

Thumbs down? Two sisters vacationing in Mexico are trapped in a shark cage at the bottom of the ocean. With less than an hour of oxygen left and great white sharks circling nearby, they must fight to survive. I loved the cheesy 80s horror movie style title sequence and that creepy rift. Somebody knows their … Continue reading 47 METRES DOWN REVIEW

*NEW* LIFE REVIEW *NEW*

Despite the shoddy pace and wafer thin characters, there was still life in this tense little sci-fi horror. A team of scientists aboard the International Space Station discover a rapidly evolving life form, that caused extinction on Mars, and now threatens the crew and all life on Earth. I didn't expect much from this. The trailers … Continue reading *NEW* LIFE REVIEW *NEW*

Tarzan (Alexander Skarsgard - True Blood), having acclimated to life in London, is called back to his former home in the jungle to investigate the activities at … Continue reading *NEW* THE LEGEND OF TARZAN REVIEW *NEW*

*NEW* THE VISIT REVIEW *NEW*

That’s one visit I won’t be making again. A single mother (Kathryn Hahn) finds that things in her family's life go very wrong after her two young children (Olivia DeJonge and Ed Oxenbould) visit their grandparents (Peter McRobbie and Deanna Dunagan). Has M. Night Shyamalan broken his movie curse? Not even close. To think this was … Continue reading *NEW* THE VISIT REVIEW *NEW*

BIG GAME REVIEW

BIG, DUMB, LAME? There's only one way to find out. The trailer looked ridiculous. I really had low expectations. BUT yet I came out after those mental 90 minutes with a guilty smile. And all I can say is this film is BIG FUN! Samuel L (The L stands for Mother F**ker) Jackson takes on … Continue reading BIG GAME REVIEW

THE WORST FILMS OF 2014 – PART TWO

Did you walk out of a film feeling angry, disappointed, baffled, confused? Did you walk out of a film for that matter? Did you sit in your car (or at home) reeling? Questioning, debating, pondering how on Earth it even got through the pitching process? Then, welcome. I think I've already compiled my worst films … Continue reading THE WORST FILMS OF 2014 – PART TWO
