24: Live Another Day [Blu-ray] [2014]
4.0 out of 5 stars Live Another Day, 26 July 2014
Live Another Day, despite its cliched bond esque sub title, presents a slightly fresher take on the old 24 formula. Trimming the series by half and setting it in London as opposed to sunny LA was a canny move and helps revitalise a struggling series.

It becomes quickly apparent that there is so much the writers want to get in that every episode is rammed full of incident and… Read more

Red State [Blu-ray] Blu-ray ~ Michael Parks
A complete change in direction for Kevin Smith, a director renowned for his low budget reverential comedies rather than middle budget action horror films.

Red State is an example of bad marketing. Billed as a horror film this probably ended up disappointing a lot of people. It isnt a horror film at all. It is an action thriller and should have been pushed in that vein. It starts off slowly building a tension and creating some interesting characters. Three teenagers decide to follow up on an advert from a prostitute. They drive out to the middle of nowehere where they are kidnapped and subjected to horrible practices.

Then the film takes a dramatic turn. In struts John… Read more
