3.0 out of 5 stars Such Potential, 18 July 2015
This review is from: It Follows [DVD] (DVD)
This film had such potential. The acting is great. The storyline is fair, although the use of the curse in comparison to passing on STI's is cringey, but atmosphere is created really well at the beginning by the music score. Unfortunately it is just too slow. Everything is dragged out. This really could have gone somewhere but foreboding creeping uneasiness just ended up in rather a flop. Again - frustrating when it could have been so satisfying.

2.0 out of 5 stars Could have been so much better, 5 July 2015

This review is from: Clown [DVD] (DVD)
I will keep it short and sweet.
Why can writers/producers never seem to find that perfect fine line between fantasy and horror? The potential for this storyline was great. But just like Hansel and Gretel Witch Hunters the balance is all wrong. There is either so much tongue in cheek humour or all out horror.
There is a perfect niche out there to be made for fantasy horror that isn't silly and isn't total gore and horror but chilling, atmospheric, frightening, fantastical fairytale. But no one ever seems to hit the nail on the head.
Clowns, witches, ghosts, goblins, all have such potential to fit into said film making category but they never have so far. And this is the same.
First half of the film is just silly and second half is over the top.
Damn wish I was a film writer/producer. Oh well.
Guess u can tell I don't really rate this film as I was disappointed when there was so much potential.

2.0 out of 5 stars Similar to Poltergeist but not scary, 26 Jun. 2015

This review is from: Insidious [DVD] (DVD)
You've all seen the story before. The child is haunted not the house. Child's astral self needs to be found and brought back home.
The first half was really promising as you are not exactly sure which direction the story is going.
But as soon as we get to the stage where dad goes under some kind of hypnosis to bring his son back, the film turns into some kind of tacky, cheap, wobbly set of a ghost train journey which is about as scary as Scooby Doo.
I really thought modern day movie makers could make something better than this.
Now, The Conjuring. That's how a scary film should be.
At least Insidious 3 had a bit more oomph to it.

This review is from: Ouija [DVD] [2014] (DVD)
This was a predictable horror story about a girl who uses a Ouija board to contact her dead friend. But despite predictability I thoroughly enjoyed this film. The main characters were likeable and there were some creepy moments.
A bit of scary fluff but good fun all the same.

This review is from: Hunted - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Best tv series I have seen in years.
Can't believe I missed it when it was first aired.
Acting and action were great. So gutted this programme did not continue.

4.0 out of 5 stars Rollercoaster Ride, 22 Jun. 2015
This review is from: San Andreas [DVD] [2015] (DVD)
There is nothing particularly new or original to the storyline here and there definately some hugely predictable cliché moments in this film. But despite that, watching this was an adrenaline rush all the way. Dwayne Johnson was surprisingly good and I really liked his family.
The special effects were fantastic on the big screen and although most of what the main characters went through no one in reality would ever survive, who cares? It is what it is, a fantasy rollercoaster of a disaster movie. Great fun!!

2.0 out of 5 stars Unsatisfactory, 20 Jun. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Babadook [DVD] (DVD)
I was very disappointed with this film.
I realise and understand the psychological route that this story took but it quickly became very boring and there were no surprises at all. I found myself knowing exactly what the mother was going to do and how the story was going to pan out.
What with that and irritating Australian accents and despite what some other people have said, the bad acting, I was just left completely unsatisfied. And it wasn't even scary.
Won't be watching that again.

The pan itself works perfectly and griddles meat to perfection.
The handle is useless. Comes loose every time I use it even though I screw it in as tightly as possible. Why have a separate handle???

This product just leaves powdery streaks on the skin and doesn't cover or disguise a thing. What a waste of money. I found good old talcum powder more useful than this!!
