The People Under The Stairs [Blu-ray]
The People Under The Stairs [Blu-ray]
Dvd ~ Brandon Adams
Price: £9.99

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the great horror movies of the 80's, 4 Mar. 2016
I like to judge horror movies based on the effect they have on me when I first view them. For this reason, I'd rate this as one of the finest horror movies around. A bit of a hybrid: horror/black comedy/adventure....all put together and it works so well.

2.0 out of 5 stars Without George Lucas, there is no Star Wars, 23 Dec. 2015
Guardians of the Galaxy?
Avatar?
The dark knight?
Avengers?
Matrix?
District 9?
Jurassic world?

These are movies of the past 15 years that have made me enjoy the cinema experience. They give the fans what they want, some have there own originality....
......yet all we get here is a rehash of the original Star Wars episode 4, but with less emotion, less choreography of both space battle and ground based fight scenes. I can't help but think that the CGI animated clone wars series had better stories than this.
George Lucas understands his universe, he created it. We lambasted him for the prequels, but after watching this, I realise we made a big mistake and now we can just sit back and hope someone can rescue this far away Galaxy from becoming a joke. Maybe we can forgive Mr Lucas?
There is no magic in this movie, no "guardians of the Galaxy" awe and wonder......only nostalgia for the universe and the original characters Mr Lucas created......
Everyone in the cinema left this movie subdued....

5.0 out of 5 stars From the director of Empire Strikes Back! A great movie!, 15 July 2015
From the director of Empire Strikes Back!
Great story, great action and breathtaking special effects. As good as, if not better than the original. A film that defied expectations and beliefs when it was released. A magical film

5.0 out of 5 stars Genocide?!? Anyone?????, 15 Aug. 2014
This review is from: The Lone Ranger [DVD] (DVD)
The most impressive movie I have seen since the original Star Wars and Indiana jones movies!
The most entertaining, family friendly film that I have seen for years. Teaches good moral values! The resonance this film has with modern day politics is thought provoking and scary. Did we really wipe out a whole race of people 100 years ago....just so that we could steal their land and resources? Survival of the fittest? It's still happening today....and sadly it will happen tomorrow...
Why would anyone make a movie that reminds us of the atrocities and genocide that was commited, as the Native American people were wiped off the face of the earth!
Why did this movie not produce big box office....well I've just given you the reason!

5.0 out of 5 stars I implore you, be pure, be vigilant....., 13 July 2014
Way ahead of it's time!
When I first saw this movie, over 20 years ago, I just didn't get it!
Reality TV? The public idolising TV show presenters who have no discernable talent? It would never happen!
Fast forward 20 years and look at the state of our TV programmes!
They don't make films like this anymore, because you need to think!
Respect your family, look after your children! You only live on this earth once and you can never take your money to the grave! Please don't line the pockets of the so-called elite! Spend your time and money wisely!
Excelsiour!

Friendship, honour, family.......A true superhero movie!

3.0 out of 5 stars Mila Kunis? Why?, 17 Mar. 2011
This review is from: The Book of Eli [DVD] (DVD)
A decent movie, with a decent story.....but why is Mila Kunis given soooo much screen time? Why was she chosen for the role in the first place?
Answer: the pervy director was at it again on the "casting couch". You know exactly what I mean. Two-thirds of the way through the movie, this so-called "actress", gets a designer wardrobe and shades (in a post apocalyptic story, I kid you not!). Thereafter, she features prominently. We all know that the director and producers were given their appropriate "hoochie-coochie payment" by M.Kunis, and the film suffers as a result.....
Excelsiour!

5.0 out of 5 stars Justice...as it should be!, 4 Jan. 2011
This review is from: Harry Brown [DVD] [2009] (DVD)
Sir Michael Caine we salute you.....for services rendered to British film.
The film is a perfect, urban, up date of the classic "Shane" formula.
Sir Michael plays his role to perfection and the justice that he meats out at the end is what we are all crying for.
The film highlights the problems in our Modern Society, where the justice system continues to punish the victims who are labelled as "weak", and do nothing to punish the criminals, who tend to get away with everything. The scene where the criminal swears relentlessly at the police officer during questioning beggers belief, as the criminal scum is just let back out on the streets without a warning.
The film teaches us that we must unite if we are to rid the streets of criminals such as sexual deviants/miscreants, Drugaddicts, drugusers, rapists, pedophiles (eg Pete Townshend), thugs, arsonists and murderers...
Once again, thank you Sir Michael Caine

2.0 out of 5 stars Keep giving him chances....., 4 Jan. 2011
This review is from: In Bruges [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
Irish Cop, Irish Thug, Irish Cowboy, Irish Alexander the Great, Irish Homosexual....but this time, Colin Farrell stretches his acting abilities to the limit and plays a Gangster, who's Irish!
You losers keep giving him chances, and he'll keep churning out this drivel.....
A movie that was entirely unnecessary...we've seen this done many times before, with a better script, and better acting.
Perhaps in Christian Bale or Guy Pearce's hands, this film would have had more soul....but Farrell continues to destroy every movie he's been in......He had his chance, and he's blown it (I'm not talking about his relationship with Joel Schumacher), why not get some new talent for these roles?
