“All I needed was the love you gave.” In between writing reviews for this blog and studying at University, I and Jack like to make short films. They aren’t made with a budget of any sort and are more a bit of fun than anything else. They’re not to be taken seriously, and they’re very low […]Read more "‘Only You’ – A Short Film"

I feel Snake Eyes is […]Read more "Snake Eyes (1998) Review"

A lot of criticism was leveled at Daniel Craig when he got the role, some seeing him […]Read more "James Bond Blu-ray Reviews – Casino Royale"
“Never let them see you bleed.” As Tom said on his review of Tomorrow Never Dies, Pierce Brosnan’s Bond movies go from best to worst. And that seems to be the case here as well. I like The World Is Not Enough, though. Not as much as the previous two, and it’s certainly far from perfect, but […]Read more "James Bond Blu-ray Reviews – The World Is Not Enough"
