Sarahs Story to Toby at the Start of Labyrinth

At the start of the film Sarah tells Toby a story, and it’s a story which seems to become far more familiar as the movie continues. It’s not necessarily a direct echo of her own existence but you can certainly see the parallels between this short story and the rest of the movie as it […]

Bloodshot Review

Wow… where to begin with this one – and sadly I don’t mean that in the good way! I’m usually quite a big fan of Vin Diesel movies, but this one was pretty close to absolute garbage. I actually thought that I would struggle to write a non-spoiler review but to be fair they do […]

All of Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann’s Marching Cadences / Chants from Full Metal Jacket

Full metal jacket born to kill helmet

Full Metal Jacket is a cinematic masterpiece, and I would say my favourite of Stanley Kubrick’s movies. It’s gritty and raw, with one of the most raw characters being Gunnery Sergeant Hartmann who puts the recruits through their paces and has them echoing chants as they march. During these cadences Hartmann generally blurts out a […]

V for Vendetta Revolutionary / Television Broadcast Speech

The speech which V gives in V for Vendetta to the people of Britain over the emergency broadcast system by hijacking the television signal is a call to arm for revolution in a society which he sees as being broken. It is centered around the 5th November which is steeped in revolutionary history in England, […]

Hobo with a Shotgun Review

I only just saw this for the first time, and… Where do I start? This is one weird film! If you want a film which has little in the way of story, almost no meaningful dialogue, relatively poor acting throughout, awful (and I mean really awful) visual effects, over the top blood & (I would […]

Doom Annihilation Review

The original Doom movie with Karl Urban and Dwayne Johnson came out in 2005 and even to this day I absolutely love it, so when I saw that there was a sequel (which actually turned out to just be a re-boot) I was both excited and also a bit worried. Honestly, for the first 15 […]

Street Fighter Review

What the hell was this?! I put this film on while I was building a new Lego piece I’d been bought as I thought it would be a nice injection of nostalgia in to the background – after all it’s a film based on what is in my opinion the best of the retro fighting […]

The Nun Review

The films from the conjuring universe have always had a reputation for being very scary so they’re not generally films which I’d watch with my wife, who isn’t a huge horror fan. The nun is one of those films, and from the trailer it defiately looks like it has plenty of jump moments and has […]

New Nightmare on ElM Street on the Cards? What should it be… My Thoughts

Yesterday Bloody Disgusting announced that Wes Craven’s estate had taken control again of the rights to the franchise and Freddy Krueger character. Now they plan on possibly producing more films and / or an HBO Max series and asking for pitches for these. It sounds like they’re getting the fans involved, but I’m not sure […]

Die Hard 2 Review

This is the second installment of the action franchise which spans 5 films in total (although if you ask some of the more hardcore fans, they’ll tell you that there are just 3 films, or 4 at a push), and it’s much the same ass kicking greatness as you would have seen in the first […]

Rambo: First Blood Review

The latest (and I believe will be the last) Rambo movie (last blood) is about to come out and I must I’m very excited for this one, especially as the 4th movie was the best of the bunch and the expendables films were out of this world. Stallone is like well aged rum…. Gets better […]

Labyrinth Review

There’s one thing which this review is not going to make, I can assure you of that – which is that I don’t like this movie…. AT ALL! When I think of 80s fantasy I think of cheesy effects, terrible hair, bad acting and awful story lines, and whilst the Labyrinth is not the worst […]

Die Hard Review

Who doesn’t know who John McClane is, and if you’re reading this because you’re considering whether or not to watch Die Hard for the first time, what the hell sort of rock have you been living under? If you want to talk classic action movies…. Movies about rogue cops from New York or just a […]

John Wick: Chapter 3 – Parabellum

It might seem a little strange starting with John Wick 3 when I haven’t yet written about numbers 1 and 2…. And it would be a logical thing to think, however the third instalment is not only the freshest in my memory it is also the most relevant at the moment, having seen its DVD […]

Perfect Skin Review

I’ve got a bit of a soft spot for Richard Brake – He’s definately a very under rated actor who I’d love to see in more films… He does crazy VERY well! His performance in Perfect Skin is no different either. He starts off the film very calm and is able to skip seemlessly between […]
