5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!!!, 27 Aug 2006
This review is from: Cars [DVD] (2006) (DVD)
Cars, the number one talked about summer blockbuster. But did it reach its full potential? Did it provide laughs and thrills like other Pixar classics such as Finding Nemo and Toy Story. For me, it did. I found the story, the scenery, the characters and even the soundtrack incredible. Although most critics gave it at least 4 stars, many said the story line was a little 'rusty'. But I found it was perfect and was a simple yet well thought out story that is funny, charming and touching in places. So although it wasn't the summer blockbuster people were expecting, for me it was one of the best films I've seen this year.

1.0 out of 5 stars Dull and slow, 15 Aug 2006
This review is from: Solaris [2003] [DVD] (DVD)
The story had a lot of potential. I really thought this was going to be a good thriller that played with your mind and had you guessing to the end, jumping off your seat, hiding behind the sofa. But instead it was slow, dull and really, really boring.

Firstly it was hard to hear because the amount of characters that kept whispering. It was really hard to understand and the storyline was confusing enough without characters speaking in a low whisper.

Secondly the characters were so boring. Not one of them had a bit of enthusiasm in their voice. It just made the film even more boring then it already was.

Thirdly, what were the flashbacks all about? They made no sense. It kept going from the past to the the present and the flashbacks had no meaning. They weren't helping the storyline at all.

And last of all, George Clooney didn't do the character justice at all. I think the only reason he was picked were to show off his body in the nudity scenes. He was just as dull and boring as the other characters.

So please, take my advice. This isn't a love story, this isn't a sci-fi film, this isn't a big hollywood blockbuster. It's just a waste of time and money and isn't even worth a look at. Very dissapointing.

1.0 out of 5 stars Sick humour, 1 Aug 2006
This review is from: Little Nicky [DVD] [2000] (DVD)
I do agree with one of the reviewers that posted a review for Little Nicky when they said that Little Nicky wasn't everyones taste and that if you had a sick, strange mind then you will enjoy it. That is true. And this film doesn't even deserve one star. It's disgusting, it's not funny and the storyline is incredibly dull just like the acting throughout. Adam Sandler is usually hiy and miss with some of his films and in this film he really hits an all time low. Not funny at all.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, 1 Aug 2006
This review is from: The Man [DVD] (DVD)
The story is a little strange and the characters sometimes rather annoying but what the heck, it's hollywood and this isn't a bad film. Samuel L. Jackson and Eugene Levy are both very clever actors and although this isn't one of their best films they do work well together and there are some funny moments and witty lines. There's no big explosions, no big, bloodthirsty violent scenes but just an entertaining film that will have you chuckling throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars A gripping thriller, 30 July 2006
This review is from: Panic Room [DVD] [2002] (DVD)
Unbelievably tense and heart stopping, this film is a truly unique and memorable thriller and is right up there with my top 10 best thrillers around. Jodie Foster is excellent as the divorced single mother who moves to a huge house in New York with her daughter and suddenly finds herself plunged into terror as three brutal and deadly intruders brake into the house. Fortunately, the house has a panic room which is a hidden chamber built as a sanctuary for break ins and the two quickly make their way into the room. But what they don't know is that what the intruders really want is inside the Panic Room. With lots of twists and jumpy moments this film is great fun and will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bravely played - but appaling., 28 July 2006
This review is from: The Libertine [DVD] (DVD)
Johnny Depp throws himself into the role of John Wilmot, a 17th century aristocrat whose debauchery was legendary.

The film - based on Stephen Jefferey's play - flaunts Wilmot's antics, and Depp doesn't attempt to make them excusable. It's expertly written and bravely played - but prepare to be appalled

3.0 out of 5 stars Sophisticated comedy, 28 July 2006
This review is from: In Good Company [DVD] (DVD)
Dennis Quaid is a veteran adman, Scarlett Johansson is his daughter, and Topher Grace is his new boss - and her new boyfriend.

Complications ensue, but not the ones you might expect, in a sophisticated, well-played and surprisingly subtle comedy from American Pie director Paul Weitz.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great suspense filled thriller, 28 July 2006
This review is from: A History Of Violence [DVD] (DVD)
Viggo Mortensen lives a quiet life in a quiet town, until an attempted raid on his diner reveals the dark side of his pshyce. Mortensen is a long way from his Lord of the Rings heroics in David Cronenberg's vivid and gut-wrenchingly violent drama. Expertly adapted from a graphic novel, every frame positively drips with subtext and suspense.

4.0 out of 5 stars A blend of Samurai movie and spaghetti western, 28 July 2006
If you can get past the blood, guts, gore and severed limbs, the first volume of Quentin Tarantino's revenge saga is a blend of samurai movie and spaghetti western - with a touch of anime thrown in.

Uma Thurman in her yellow catsuit is the iconic centre of all carnage.
