5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Guts Hattigan in Jail Roark JR Castrated Oh Nancy!, 2 Aug 2012
This review is from: Sin City [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
Quentin Tarantino's guest directing Robert Rodríguez unaccredited directorial multi story well laird nicely cast brutal 2005 Neo Noir film that I just love and for me was a must own as soon as I saw it Theatrical and both Extended versions were thay split the film up into its stories are all good

Based on the now cult Frank Miller Dark Horse graphic novel series and easily one of the best comic movies out there shot in black & white to suit as the comics had no colour
Tarantino working with Robert Rodríguez & Miller himself on the screenplay
uses the 4 tales (The Customer Is Always Right The Hard Goodbye, The Big Fat Kill, and That Yellow Bastard) and intertwines them beautifully without ruining Millers mastery

aside Bruce Willis's gritty portrayal of down on his luck honest cop John who saves young Nancy Callahan from "The Yellow Bastard" Roark JR (Nick Stahl)
thats at barely the service of it

The Priest (Frank Miller himself)
Nancy Callahan (Makenzie Jade Vega) & (Jessica Allba)
Kevin (Elijah Wood )
Marv (Mickey Rorcke)
Dwight McCarthy (Clive Owen)
Gail (Rosario Dawson), the old town prostitute gang leader
Miho (Devon Aoki)
(Jamie King) in a twin role as Goldie & Wendy
Jack Rafferty ( Benicio del Toro)
Senator Roark (Powers Boothe)

4.0 out of 5 stars Cherly Jackson Was Right in the case of Rose Red Some Houses Are Just Born Bad!!, 31 July 2012
This review is from: Rose Red [DVD] (DVD)
I got this initially cause I like Stephen Kings type of Horror Now most of Kings are based on novels or his Short stories Well refreshingly this is a screenplay Done as enjoyable 3 part (2002) TV Mini series the better than most films of its type Dedicated to David Dukes who played closed minded Dr Carl Miler and passed away while filming

This is the chillingly intriguing exceptinal tale of the ever expanding hunted house that's semidry alive Built in 1906 by Wealthy oil Tycoon John Rimbour ( John Procaccino) for his wife Ellen as a wedding present that becomes the families curse Where death and mysterious disappearances became commonplace
Haunted by Ellen Rimbour (Julia Campbell) her Servant Sukeena (Tsidii Le Loka) Daughter April ,and a Hollywood actress among others All with there own tale of damnation to add to the houses sordid history

Now labled a dead cell (inactive) Dr Joice Reardon (Nancy Travis "Three Men and A Baby") the local university parapsychology professor who has a distinct interest in Rose Red having got access from the sole remaining heir Stephen Rimbour (Mat Keesler) intends to lead a paranormal specialist team in to the House to see if she can wake it up
But to do this she is needing

Annie Wheeton (Kimberly J Brown "Bringing Down The House") A Autistic Telekinetic Psychic and team focal point who must be accompanied by her sister Rachel "Sister" (Melanie Lynskey) "Coyote Ugly" "Up in The Air"

Pam Asbury (Emily Deschanel) Better known as Temperance Brennan in "Bones" partly why I have this is able to do Psychometry (Object Reading)

Cathy Kramer (Judith Ivey) "The Devil's Advocate" who is a Automatic Writer

Emery Waterman (Mat Ross) who has post-cognition (Sees dead people)

Nick Hadaway (Julian Sands) "Leaving Las Vegas" a Telepathic Remote Viewer capable of E.S.P.

Victor "Vic" Kandinsky (Kevin Tighe) is precognitive (sees things before they happen)

Oh and look for King himself as he makes a nice cameo

5.0 out of 5 stars Theres No Cure for What hes Got So He Drove Across 3 States with A Girls Head as A Hat, 30 July 2012
This review is from: Con Air [DVD] [1997] (DVD)
Con Air or Convict Airlines is a 1997 action packed well casted must I always call one of my favourites whether you haven't seen this Extended or not you need too Directed by Simon West & produced by Don Simpson and Jerry Bruckheimer & is certainly one of there better Casted

Camron Poe (Cage) a recently discharged Army ranger is imprisoned for accidently killing a man outside a bar while defending himself his pregnant wife Tricia (Monica Potter) and sentenced to a maximum Security prison for a 7-10 year tearm
8 years later Poe is released on his day of release his first thought is to see his wife and Daughter Casey (Lindry Albright) this is until the plane full of the worst types of Convicts witch he has hitched a ride on with cell block mate "Baby O" (Mykelti Williamson) is commandeered by the mostly ruthless bunch
lead by Cyrus "The Virus" Crissom (John Malkovich plays him to the masterminded perfection)
who are being transferred to a new Super Max prison by D.E.A. agent Duncan Malloy (Colm Meaney of Star Trek fame) over seeing all this is US Marshal Vince Larkin (John Cusack)
but unknowento them a selection of cons are employed by .Francisco Cindino (Jesse) Borego)
along the way there are any amount of great action parts and one liners keep you riveted

the other Convicts

Garland Greene knowen as "The Marietta Mangler" (Steve Busemi) a serial child malester who is sort of seems the only sane one in the lot aside habing some of the best lines is ainteresting one to watch

Nathan "Diamond Dog" Jones (Ving Rhamas)a Black militent & 2nd in comand
William Bedford (known as "Billy Bedlam" (Nick Chinlund)
"Swamp Thing" M C Gainley
Johnny Baca (known as "Johnny-23"(Danny Trejo) serial rapist
Ramon Martinez (known as "Sally Can't Dance" ("Renoly Santiago)
Joe Parker (known as "Pinball"), (Dave Chappelle)
Gaitor (John Marshall Jones)

5.0 out of 5 stars God loves a MGM Leper, 30 July 2012
This review is from: Ben-Hur [1959] [DVD] (DVD)
This astonishing beautiful William Wyler 1959 MGM 50 Million dollar all star biblical masterpiece unlike some later record rivals is richly deserved
The Gore Vidal and Christopher Fry academy wining screenplay based on the1880 Noval Ben Hur Tale of The Christ by Law Wallace is a favourite of mine & a sound remake of the 1912 silent they did do a recent animation but this is the one u really want as it infect by itself Rescued MGM from going bankrupt

Set AD26 within the roman lifetime of Jesus this is the story of wealthy Jewish prince Judah Ben Hur (Charlton Heston)'s fall from grace and rise from who has being living with his mother Miriam (Martha Scott) & sister Tirzah (Cathy ODonnall)
After refusing to support Massala (Stephen Boyd) a childhood friend now a Roman Tribune who is forced to arrest Hur when he takes the blame for the accidental death of the new governor coursed by his sister

Hurs servant Simonides (Sam Jaffe) and his daughter Esther (Haya Harareet)
try to reason but to no avail hoping to intimidate the Jews Massala sentences his friend to a chained walk across the desert to the galleys on reaching Nazareth he collapses but is revived by drink from a man the audience identify as Jesus

Part way his long sentencing to the galleys he rescues Quintus Arrius (Jack Hawkins witch triggers a reversal in fortune as he is adopted by the grateful roman but eventually returns home to find his mother & sister

That may be the basic layout but there is so much more to this film its iconic steeple chase helped make this 11 Oscar Winner film (only matched by Titanic & Lord of The Rings Return of The King) one of the top Films of all time & a Film You Must See Before You Die

4.0 out of 5 stars April 1912 a Titan sinks, 29 July 2012
This review is from: Titanic [1998] [DVD] (DVD)
This (1997) Beautiful visually stunning well noted Oscar wining James Camron fictionalised romance between Jack Dawson (Leonardo Decaprio) and Rose DeWitt Bukater (Kate Winslet) & Billy Zane as Caledon 'Cal' Hockley who on the voyage presents Rose with a valuable necklace containing the fictitious Diamond "The Heart of The Ocean" witch is thought to have sank with Rose at the site
and is the reason the Hockley estates claim and Excursion of the Titanic gravesite

British born Winslet who was nominated several Best Actress including Oscar & Golden Globe for her portrayal of rebellious Aristocrat along with other brilliant casting of Zane & Kathy Bates as the Unsinkable Molly Brown & the controlling mother Ruth DeWitt Bucketer (Frances Fisher) really keeps Decaprio from looking at times like a drowned fish (but that its my view you may dissagree)

Wining 11 out of 14 Oscars (Matching Ben Hur) that went to Screen Writers & Visual Effects Set Design & Camron for the most part

Set aboard the ill-fated 1912 madden voyage of the Olympic class liner Titanic Though the film starts in the Liverpool docks the ship was built by Harland & Wolf & started in Belfast Island This historical event would change the maritime safety rule book forever though they don't question Captain Edward John Smiths (Benard Hill) record or why he's retiring witch was due to his previous ship the RMS Olympics collision with RMS Hawke in 1911 or J Bruce Ismay's (Jonathan Hyde) financial record with White Star Line Witch you would not expect from Camron given his fascination with her

4.0 out of 5 stars The Harris Romley Enigma, 29 July 2012
This review is from: Enigma [DVD] [2001] (DVD)
This Michael Apled cracking adulteration based on Robert Harris's griping novel is the fictional tale of mathematician Tom Jericho's (Dougry Scott) obsessive search for ex one month girlfriend Claire Romily (Seffron Bowers) and suspected traitor who has disappeared along the way he enlists Claire's roommate Hester Wallis (Kate Winslet)'s help

Set in 1943 World War II England fallowing the Historical Events of the brits capture of Enigma code machine from a Natzi Polish U Boat
this is the tale of Bletchley Park (were they are all employed) & its unravelling of the Germans scrambled code they have to decipher This is made difficult by the Germans sudden switch to a new code book apart from being a pivotal point in history is a well rounded casted Spy Drama the holds true to the book which I have read

Season 3 & 4 set in the year 2006 just after the events of the events of Transformers The Movie Optimus Prime is dead along with quite a few characters from The past 2 seasons the Autobots are now lead by there new leader Rodimus Prime and the Decepticons by Galvatron the reformatted Megatron who were all but beaten at the begriming of the first episode & Spike Witwickey is now maried to Carly and has a young son Daniel
this season is more a space fairing Cybertron based than earth based compared to the last 2 seasons the iconic theme is replaced with a new on and is lead more by characters from the cult movie animation
intended to give fans a new cast and futuristic settings this infarct its were The 80s cult phenomenon lost a bit of momentum & became more toy based and was soon fallowed by Takara series in Japan

However there a quite a few things that keep the fans riveted there are the Returns of Optimus Prime Starscream The History and Mythology is deeply explored more so than previously along with the emergence of a new golden era on Cybertron

New included Trypticon The headmasters & Target masters among others
