Vigilante Diaries (2016)

It’s my own fault. I saw a cool cover. I saw some names listed in the cast that I liked. My mind went with the old phrase that has managed to get me in trouble so many times before: how bad can it be? Vigilante Diaries, to be fair, isn’t […]

World Cinema Wednesday: Godzilla (1954)

AKA Gojira. It would be easy for me to write a lengthy essay about the circumstances that affected Japan so seriously it ended up creating Gojira (to give him his proper name). Okay, it would take some more time and research, but I would still end up covering ground that […]

World Cinema Wednesday: The Tribe (2014)

World Cinema can mean different things to different people. To someone living in America, I guess even our British cinematic output could qualify as World Cinema. In fact, those two words together, if you think about it, mean nothing other than, well, cinema. Because it’s all from somewhere in the […]

Cry Wolf (2015)

AKA Crying Wolf (or even Crying Wolf 3D, of course). Some people really believe that I always write movie reviews by just putting down the first thoughts that pop into my head. While that is part of the process, and I actually pride myself on trying to minimise the filtering, […]

Film Review

The Haunting Of Emily (2015)

AKA Delirium. The plot description for The Haunting Of Emily makes it sound like a potentially decent chiller. It states that young Emily has returned to her mother and stepfather after being missing for over a year. But she hasn’t come back alone. Plot descriptions are there to sell the […]

Kindergarten Cop 2 (2016)

Remember when Kindergarten Cop finished and you sat in the cinema thinking “hmmmm, I’d like to see a sequel/rerun of that, but not for another quarter of a century, and with Dolph Lundgren taking over the lead role from Arnie”? Yeah, neither did I. But if one person had that […]

Southbound (2015)

I’m not entirely sure if it’s all to do with the quality of the final product or whether it just looks better in comparison to so many other recent horror movies, but Southbound turned out to be a very pleasant surprise. It’s another anthology movie, and we’ve been getting those thick […]

Film Review

Jason Bourne (2016)

The Bourne continuation He’s back, and it’s not even necessary to add anything to his name. “Jason Bourne” is enough. After nine years off, and Tony Gilroy’s able but rather dispiriting 2014 spin-off, Damon has donned the mantle again. He’s as good, with the same mix of intelligence and explosive […]

Shark Lake (2015)

If I could watch a shark movie every week then I’d be a happy man. Because I love shark movies. Unfortunately, for every release like The Shallows you can end up with something like Shark Exorcist. Or, to a slightly lesser extent, Shark Lake. Advertised in trailers, and even on […]
