5.0 out of 5 stars ONLY WATCH THE FIRST FILM, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Tremors Attack Pack [DVD] (DVD)
The first film was quirky and enjoyable. I watched the second film and thought it was awful. In fairness 3 + 4 i never bothered to watch.

The original film is set in a hick desert town where both people and animals start to disappear in mysterious circumstances. The cause of the disappearances is uncovered as huge 'worm like' creatures are discovered almost by accident. Attacking from beneath the sand, the ground literally opens to take prey. The creatures hunt by vibration, hence Tremors title, and the only salvation for the few town residents is to reach rocky ground.

The film is serious in some respects but is mixed with humour and is an enjoyable watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT EFFECTS AND STORY, 29 Sept. 2007
For once, the aliens don't want a meal, to take over the world or to scare the hell out of us.

A deep sea mission to recover a sunken nuclear submarine faces disaster as a storm above them has cut off all contact with their support ships. As the base begins to flood the crew come face to face with things unknown. The SEAL team tasked with recovery of the nuclear warheads on the sub suspect 'commies' and seek to detonate a warhead, denying the bad guys the remaining nukes, but vapourising everybody in the process.

However, the UFO's are a race of intelligent aliens, living miles beneath the opcean, 'The Abyss', where man cannot and has not explored. The alien race come to the aid of the team. Stunning effects abound.

5.0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC COMEDY, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Fletch [DVD] (DVD)
Chevy Chase is brilliant and his comedy acting is at its very best in Fletch.

Fletch is an investigative reporter, trying to serialise the lives of beach down and out's and their attachment to drugs and crime. The investigation uncovers a life insurance fraud.

Master of disguise, Fletch, charms/cons his way into the case with hilarious scenes throughout.

A+ for this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars GRITTY AND REALISTIC, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Hamburger Hill [DVD] [1987] (DVD)
Showing the futility of the Vietnam war from one angle.

Troops would fight to a capture a hill or valley, only to leave the battleground and return to base. No objectives were held and quickly reoccupied by the enemy. The US troops would return to fight for the same ground all over again. It must have been frustrating.

The film follows the battle for 'Hamburger Hill', so named for the high casualties sustained by the attackers.

The action is well filmed and the effects realistic.

2.0 out of 5 stars JOHN WAYNE WITHOUT A COWBOY HAT, 29 Sept. 2007
The film was very pro-American and made the Vietnam war more like some old WW2 film, where they are the clean-shaven, God fearing good guys.

The film shows none of the horrific side of the war to the point where it's almost like a bit of fun if you are a yank.

No real informative scenes here I'm afraid.

4.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FUN, 29 Sept. 2007
Very funny film throughout.

A trio of bungling kidnappers are outwitted by a crawling baby, who leads them a merry dance from start to finish.

Great fun for all age groups.

5.0 out of 5 stars GREAT FILM, 29 Sept. 2007
Two Hollywood greats combine well to create this lovable film.

Set in 1930's USA, Clint Eastwood plays the tough cop and Burt Reynolds the charming private detective as they fight two crime gangs, intent on seizing financial ledgers which could ruin one gang or elevate the other, should they fall into the wrong hands.

Humorous film with plenty of action thrown in.

3.0 out of 5 stars LAUGH OR CRY? YOU DECIDE, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Missing In Action [DVD] (DVD)
Chuck Norris, he of the Wooden School Of Acting, creates and wins 'The Vietnam War Part II'.

Sent to rescue US POW's from the evil orientals, he kills more baddies than he could carry bullets. There is a scene where he rises from beneath water, M60 belching bullets, that will stay with me forever!!

Escapism personified.

2.0 out of 5 stars WOODEN, 29 Sept. 2007
This review is from: Hero And The Terror [DVD] (DVD)
How did Chuck Norris ever become an 'actor'? This film must have scared him as it had more lines than most of his previous films combined. The film starts well as Norris tracks and captures a notorious serial killer, a big bear of a man who takes more kicks and punches in this film than anybody deserves.

Our killer escapes prison and Norris is forced to face his nightmares and go hunting for a second time.

There were okay parts but Norris just leaves me bored. Sorry Chuck !!

4.0 out of 5 stars Action at 30.000 ft, 29 Sept. 2007
Kurt Russell's character is called upon to help a group of US special forces thwart a hijacking. The plane is carrying biological weapons, due to be crashed onto an unsuspecting US city. Kurt and the team, led by Steven Segal, make a covert docking from a stealth plane (slightly unbelievable) and covertly prepare to take out the terrorists and save the day. Thankfully, Segal is killed early in the film to save us another Oscar nomination (not) and Kurt saves the day.

Good film generally with a few holes here and there.
