100 Words or Less – Duel

Title – Duel Released – 1971 Director – Steven Spielberg Starring – Dennis Weaver Review – The first ‘real’ film of Spielberg’s career, Duel is a great little movie. There’s not much to it, it’s only 90 minutes long and the plot could fit on a postage stamp; an evil trucker torments a man along a remote American road, but it works. […]

100 Words or Less – Identity

Title – Identity Released – 2003 Director – James Mangold Starring – John Cusack, Ray Liotta, John Hawkes, Alfred Molina Review – At first Identity appears to be a simple, old school, who-dunnit thriller with a great cast. Ten strangers are trapped in a Nevada Motel and slowly start getting picked off one by one, but things soon take an unusual twist. Director […]

Two hitmen hide out in Bruges (Belgium) after a job gone awry. Advertised as more of a comedy, it’s much darker than it first appears and gives Colin Farrell plenty of […]

100 Words or Less – Trespass

Title – Trespass Released – 2011 Director – Joel Schumacher Starring – Nicolas Cage, Nicole Kidman, Ben Mendelsohn. Review – As a huge fan of Nicolas Cage I had to watch this sooner or later. It is easily the worst movie he has been in over the last 20 years. It is abysmal, even the few “Cagey” scenes can’t hope […]

8MM (1999) Review

Ok so lets talk about 8MM. The film is directed by Joel Schumacher. Joel Schumacher of Batman and Robin fame. Upon going on Metacritic to see the reviews of this film I found it actually has less than Batman and Robin. Let that sink in, if the reviews are to be believed then this film is worse than the famous shitty Batman and Robin. But it’s much better, and also has Nicolas Cage.

Snake Eyes (1998) Review

“You’ve got snake eyes.” Yaaay! It’s Nicolas Cage time! Snake Eyes comes from my favourite era of the master’s work, the 1990’s. In this decade you had some downright excellent action films like The Rock, Con Air and Face/Off (not to mention his Oscar win). In the 90’s you could hardly move for all the Nicolas Cage. I feel Snake Eyes is […]

Skyfall Review

It seemed silly to re-do my review of Skyfall, seeing as I’d already reviewed it right here!! Skyfall is a brilliant movie, and a brilliant Bond film as well. It’s near perfect for me. It’s got the right mixture of quips and a good story, two things that I think the previous two films were missing respectively. […]
