Flightplan

Film Four Stars
The reviews for Flightplan in the States were harsh. Frankly after reading some of them and seeing the ratings coming out I really did wonder if Jodie Foster had made a very big mistake with her movie choice, yet I was confused, I had read that she carefully chose this...

Transporter 2

Film Two Stars
The Transporter had a great idea for a movie and a superb character to build upon. A man who transported any type of goods for anyone, no questions asked, followed his own set of strict rules, and could seriously kick ass if anything got in his way. The premise was...

Night Watch (Nochnoy dozor)

Film Five Stars
There's been a lot of talk of this series from Russia, much saying that it's the country's epic to match Matrix and that kind of thing. Well those comments really did fall on their face for me, I mean Matrix is nothing to be compared against. What did interest me...

Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire

Film Three Stars
There are a number of things I have to say right up front. Firstly I don't read the Harry Potter books, secondly I know this is late but when I was in the Edinburgh Ocean Terminal Vue Cinema I couldn't believe how many people were still going to see this...

The Book of Cool

DVD Five Stars
Having trouble finding a really great gift for someone? Do you know someone who has everything and you can't find something unique to get them? Well I've found the answer in the form of a DVD boxset called The Book of Cool, Part One. It's a whopping nine hours, three...

Ong Bak

Film Three Stars
I was spoiled for choice of which version of Ong Bak to get from Moviesville, but eventually set on the VCD version featuring the original soundtrack, the original uncut film and complete with the original not so sweetened ending. This was a version I'd never seen before and it looked...

The Chumscrubber

Film Four Stars
I was lucky enough to receive a copy of The Chumscrubber prior to it's UK release...well actually there isn't a UK release as yet, and the US release is limited enough so that just makes me even luckier! Mainly because there won't be many UK viewings of it as yet,...

Where the Truth Lies

Film Four Stars
There were three reasons why I wanted to see Where the Truth Lies, before I saw the trailer or heard anything more about it than the casting. Kevin Bacon, Colin Firth and the final one, Bacon and Firth together. Bacon is a superb actor, one that entirely smothers you in...

Kiss Kiss Bang Bang

Film Five Stars
While I was watching this movie I recognised a scene and a still photo that I had actually found on the Internet months and months ago, in fact it's so long I might even consider that it was close to a year. That's a long time I've known about Kiss...

The Constant Gardener

Film Three Stars
The Constant Gardener was a bit of a mystery for me, I had seen the trailer and some of the blurbs associated with it and it really did look like a great huge conspiracy thriller. I was expecting high talent and some edge of your seat. It's really pretty clear...

Freaked

DVD Four Stars
Firstly I have a big apology to make. I was given the DVD of Freaked some time ago to review, and unfortunately it's been relegated to the bottom of the pile time and time again, not because I didn't want to watch it, but because of the sheer amount of...

Initial D (Tau man chi D)

DVD Two Stars
You know I'm a man and I like cars. There's nothing to be ashamed of there. I also liked The Fast and the Furious, it had some fun in there but it also had big, fast, shiny cars, and one like mine too. So when I heard that there was...
