Oceans 13 Review

Oceans 13 ReviewOk first things first; Ocean’s 13 is better than 12. Granted, that isn’t saying much but this third venture out for the kings of swing is actually quite a bit better. Without giving the finer details away, Danny and his cronies are motivated right out of the gate, the whole thing slides along as effortlessly... Read More »

Shawn of the Dead Review

Shawn of the Dead ReviewZombies! I love zombies! The whole eating brains thing, wondering about going Uurrrrrrrggghh. It’s great. If you like zombies and comedy then you’ll like this. Billed as a Zom-Rom-Com, anyone who’s seen the cult Channel 4 series “Spaced” will know what to expect. Simon Pegg stars as Shaun, a hapless electrical goods shop worker, living... Read More »

Jumper Review

Jumper ReviewYoung Darth (Hayden Christian) learns to teleport at as a child and sets about taking whatever he wants from the world around him. Happy to travel at the speed of thought until a white haired Sam “The Man” Jackson and his electric whippy stick thing, catch up with him. Oh yeah and Billy Elliot (Jamie... Read More »

The Dark Knight Review

The Dark Knight ReviewWOW! What a film. The best I’ve seen this year and possibly the greatest comic book adaptation ever. I don’t want to talk too much about the plot of the film, as its best if you seen this soon and as spoiler free as possible. Let’s just say that even though it clocks in at... Read More »

The Devil Wears Prada Review

The Devil Wears Prada ReviewVery much like a slightly less camp version of Ugly Betty for the big screen. Andy Sachs (Anne Hathaway) is the bright eyed, wet behind the ears newbie, looking for a position in New York’s prestigious fashion magazine, Runway. Editor in chief, Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) is the hard nosed, ice queen that rules the... Read More »

Little Miss Sunshine Review

Little Miss Sunshine ReviewDirected by Jonathan Dayton & Valerie Faris Ok, now this film has been out for a bit but I’ve only just got round to watching it. There’s been loads of talk about it being a “hilarious comedy” and in part that’s true. Yet those of you expecting this to be another ‚”Fish Called Wanda” will... Read More »

Forgetting Sarah Marshall Review

Forgetting Sarah Marshall ReviewJudd Apatow, who provided us with the hilarious knocked up and 40 year old virgin, returns with yet another film where laughing at sad situations is perfectly acceptable. This time round it’s the turn of talented composer, Peter Bretter (Jason Segel, How I met your mother), who, after being dumped by his celebrity girlfriend, Sarah... Read More »

Black Sheep The Movie Review

Black Sheep The Movie ReviewNew Zealand born and bred (sorry) low budget comedy horror, featuring the countries over abundance of woolly coated lovelies and a rather nasty outbreak of foot and mouth. Black Sheep is a tail (sorry) of two brothers, one traumatised as a young boy by a sheep related horror incident, the other a forward thinking progressive... Read More »

The Bourne Ultimatum Review

The Bourne Ultimatum ReviewMatt Damon! Now we may have described him as “Everyone’s Favourite Acting Wallpaper” but that’s maybe not as harsh a description as it sounds. Where else than acting as the scatter brained killing machine, Jason Bourne, could such a lack of onscreen personality be so convincingly portrayed? Only as Jason “International Man of who really...

1408 Review

1408 ReviewJohn Cusack plays haunted hotel inspector and writer in this adaptation of Stephen Kings short story. Samuel L. Jackson hams it up as the hotel manager. The film starts of well enough but then goes rapidly downhill from there. What a great idea, great cast and nicely shot. Why then does this film fall flat... Read More »
