4.0 out of 5 stars Non-Stop Neeson..!!, 4 Mar 2014
This review is from: Non-Stop [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
Just saw this movie at the cinema & would recommend it to all fans of the Thriller/Mystery Genre....The story involves a Flight Marshal with lots of personal problems who is assigned as Security on a flight from USA-London...Not long after take off Neeson receives text messages which requests 150 Million be deposited to a bank account...or 1 passenger will be killed every 20 mins...Good character development,lots of intrigue & twists all over...I was teetering on the edge of my seat throughout the 90 odd mikns duration & would be surprised if most ppl din't find the movie in the least entertaining... 7.5/10 :D

This review is from: Open Your Eyes [DVD] (DVD)
Open your eyes is the Euro movie on which Vanilla sky was based....A somewhat superior movie to Vanilla Sky whereby a young guy falls for his best friends new love interest...This infuriates his part time love & following an accident,the young man ends up being held in a Phsychiatric institute on suspicion of murder,with physical scars of his own...Whilst explaining events to his Lawyer there's lots of flashbacks which blurs the fine line between reality & dreamland..A somewhat complex movie with a decent twist as the payoff...Definitely worth checking out before Vanilla Sky :D

4.0 out of 5 stars Scarefest..!!, 26 Nov 2013
This review is from: Insidious 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Just went to see Insidious 2 at cinema & really enjoyed it..It's at least the first Insidious' equal....Wan & Whannell are doing wonderfully well creating Horror movies which genuinely scare the viewer...I'm a long time Horror fan..way back fan from the days of The Omen & The Excorcist...& Insidious 2 is a welcome addition to the genre...The same family are experiencing strange happenings at home & the secret is unveiled as the movie goes on...Patrick Wilson plays a super role..as does Rose Byrne(the tortured Mother)...Plenty of bumps,bangs & scares which had the hair on my neck standing up multiple times...I recommend this movie to all Horror fans or simply movie goers who like a fun/scary time :D 8/10..

4.0 out of 5 stars MaCHete don't tweet..!!, 30 Oct 2013
This review is from: Machete Kills [DVD] (DVD)
Just saw MaCHete Kills at cinema & was impressed/entertained with Rodriquez' follow up to the 1st MaCHete film...Danny Trejo is perfect in his role as the serious,craggy faced knife chucker,slicing anything & everything in his path...This time MaCHete is taken off death row & enlisted by the US President to protect the USA from a crazy Mexican cartel Boss threatening destruction with missiles... Lot's of action,lol moments & a stellar cast make it a fun joyride....Mel Gibson,Sofia Vergara(along with her brazier shooting machine guns),the gorgeous Amber Heard,Antonia Banderas,et al ...do a brilliant job in their roles as either friend or foe...Leave ur brain at the door & enjoy...A movie not to be taken too seriously....but it's certainly serious entertainment :D 7/10 for me...

5.0 out of 5 stars Gavitational pull..!!, 7 Oct 2013
This review is from: Gravity [DVD] [2013] (DVD)
Just saw new movie Gravity at the cinema & was spellbound from the opening credits with the fantastic cinematography on offer.....not to mention a tense-gripping story whereby a Medical Engineer & an Astronaut find themselves adrift in space after a debris storm destroys their space craft...An amazing story of survival with great special FX & production values....A MUST SEE as the best movie of the year so far...A 9/10 for me :D

This review is from: The Descent [DVD] [2005] (DVD)
What a pleasant surprise i received watching this little Horror gem :) 5 girls descend on a claustrophobic underground cave system in the mountains for a reunion of types....only to be stalked by grisly little creatures who are blind but hungry :P Each girl is picked off one by one until the gripping finale....which was exciting & well thought out....The gore scenes were well constructed & the tension build up well paced...A superb performance by all actors ...particularly Juno & Shauna Macdonald....This Horror goes into my favourites box & will receive many further viewings...A must-see for any bona-fide Horror fan... :D

3.0 out of 5 stars Taken again..!!, 1 Feb 2013
Brian Mills/Liam Neeson is back in the sequel to the brilliant Taken(2008)...I wonder if critics would have been so harsh on this movie if it had been the original Taken..?? Anyways...the villians from initial instalment are pretty angry at Brian blowing their sons into oblivion & want revenge...Brian & family are holidaying in Turkey & find themselves kidnapped..Brian's strong bond with Daughter is brought to the fore when he enlists her help to escape the clutches of the desperados..Plenty of thrills/car chases/fight scenes,etc...however i found it generally softer than Taken...Defo still worth a look though as Neeson's character commands attention & respect for his input....Initial Taken is a 5 star movie & Taken 2 holds it's own with a solid 3 stars...Sit back & enjoy :D

5.0 out of 5 stars Hunted heads..!!, 29 Jun 2012
This review is from: Jo Nesbo's Headhunters [DVD] (DVD)
Well Well Well...I went to see this movie cold at cinema a few Months back & was pleasantly surprised by the plot/character development & twists it contained...A great Thriller starring an Art thief who bites off more than her can chew....as a result he's forced to take extreme measures to ensure his own survival at the hands of an ex-army-special forces fella...I shook my head in disbelief at the twists & turns the movie took as the Hunter became the hunted...One of the best Euro Thrillers i've ever seen & is a must watch movie..I'll be getting my dvd copy when it's released in August ;))

3.0 out of 5 stars dazglam, 2 Jun 2012
This review is from: Dark Shadows [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
Saw this movie at cinema recently & quite enjoyed it....Not a movie to be taken too seriously..I would regard it as a dark comedy with Arthouse style mood...Johnny Depp as Barnabas gives his usual eccentric/off beat performance,supported well by a dysfunctional family in a creepy castle...however as a Vampire his lust for blood is his weakness as is the case with most Vampires...lol..Overall the movie's worth a look..

4.0 out of 5 stars Armless desperation..!!, 1 Jun 2011
This review is from: 127 Hours [DVD] (DVD)
Wow....I saw 127 hours at cinema recently & was quite moved by the experience...James Franco played the part of the trapped incumbent extremely well..Apparently he met the poor guy who actually cut his arm off during the making of the movie...just to see how the guy felt whilst being trapped & post losing his arm..I must admit i was surprised the producers could create the amount of tention they did over such a simple plot,however the movie has it's moments & was certainly tense/intrigueing ;) I'd recommend this movie for anyone with a strong stomach(not for the squeamish) & looking for ARMLESS entertainment...lol..7.5/10 for me ;)
