SURVIVOR REVIEW

I don't think anyone is going to survive from this tepid terrorist thriller. An explosive and fiery opener certainly grabbed my attention. Shame, the rest of the film couldn't keep that momentum. Thinking back. The opening didn't really bear much significance to the story. Shame. Corny, cliched, slow, boring and from the director of V … Continue reading SURVIVOR REVIEW

EDGE OF TOMORROW REVIEW

The End of Tom Cruise? Not today. This little timey wimey special effects action flick is pretty much Groundhog Day meets a 12A equivalent of Starship Troopers. If that sounds terrible, then move on. If not, welcome. If you love the Cruise, he still does his best and proves yet again that he can still … Continue reading EDGE OF TOMORROW REVIEW

A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST REVIEW

A Million Ways to Die Laughing! Unfortunately not. MacFarlane takes on the Wild West and comes out more battered and bruised than his heroic counterpart. Applying his Family Guy spiel, this cowboy comedy yields mixed results this time round. Now for the record I am a big Family Guy fan and thought Ted was a … Continue reading A MILLION WAYS TO DIE IN THE WEST REVIEW

PLASTIC REVIEW

Surprisingly watchable and entertaining. Hardly original or groundbreaking. Pretty much a darker Hustled up Hollyoaks hybrid but with a likeable and talented young British cast, I can think of worst ways to kill 90-odd minutes. I went in expecting the worst and was relieved. A watchable easygoing crime caper, even if the end result is … Continue reading PLASTIC REVIEW

TRANSCENDENCE REVIEW

Transcen-dunce or dense. A mind numbingly drab affair of a concept that has just enough meat to be a generic TV movie you'd expect to see on late night SyFy. You know you're onto a loser when the opening five minutes pretty much tells you what to expect and an established cast sleepwalk their lines … Continue reading TRANSCENDENCE REVIEW

ENDLESS LOVE REVIEW

A story we've seen done endless times before but surprisingly enough with a light touch and a good cast, quite watchable. Not the worst love story going, but not the best. If you love all that predictable guff, give it a go. The spiel is nothing new. Privileged, if isolated, high school loner  Jade Butterfield (Gabriella … Continue reading ENDLESS LOVE REVIEW

LUNCH TIME

A short story I wrote a while back about one man's downfall during the lunch time madness. Bon appetit! LUNCH TIME  It’s the lunch time dash at the Good Eats Restaurant. The place is full to the brim with impatient, hungry customers. Queues have formed all the way back to the entrance. People are trying … Continue reading LUNCH TIME
