    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Jake really excels himself into this role so well, I completely forgot it was him halfway through.
    Great to see Rene Russo back, what a tasty role she had and pulled it off wonderfully too.
    This is a great intake of how the media are so pushy to get their story before rivals intervene or get one up on them.Over the years thanks to the wonderful internet it has gotten slightly worse and isn't getting better. Censorship is another key…

    Now I am excited- X-WING battles across the water, Lightsabers that stop you getting your hands chopped off, storm troopers that will be falling from the sky, tiny football robots and new characters to look forward too.
    Plus most of the old cast are back---yay.

  • RoboCop 1987

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 07 Nov, 2014 8

    I have lost count of the amount of times I have watched this. From VHS upto Blu Ray it still holds up to be an 80's classic.
    Ths is one of Paul's best with all his elements of comic book violence and gore added.
    The censors in those days were tough (UK BBFC ) and I'm surprised they didn't get the scissors out for this movie. Later on the extended scenes were introduced which were far worse then before and…

  • The Diary of Anne Frank 1959

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2014 2

    Over a month ago me and my girfriend went over to Amsterdam.
    Not knowing much about the Anne Frank story it was an absolute treat to hear the story and then walking into the main secret rooms where they hid for many years until caught. Anne's pictures are still pinned to the walls and of course her precious diary which is heavily protected sitting in a glass case. Plenty of other artifacts which her family used during the hideout.
    I…

  • Goldfinger 1964

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 08 Oct, 2014

    'Dr No' started off with a bronze, ' From Russia with love' came close but gets a silver. So that leaves the GOLD which GOLD-finger fully deserves to receive.
    This is my favourite bond movie out of all the franchise because it has all the elements that a bond movie should have.

    The theme tune finally gets a singer which turns out to be the ultimate tune. Shirley Bassey was perfect to sing this and up to today she still…

  • From Russia With Love 1963

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 09 Sep, 2014 2

    After 'Dr No' this James Bond film kicks off without any explaining needed and what a start we have.
    The theme itself has no singer involved but again we are left with a piece of iconic tune that is very catchy.
    Spectre and our famous white pussy cat is introduced and they are pissed thanks to Bond killing Dr.No.
    Rosa Clebb with her sharp knife at the end of her shoe. I bet if she was pretty she would have…

  • Point Blank 1967

    ★★★★★ Watched 31 Aug, 2014

    Lee Marvin was one hard ass MOFO at the time and if you decided to kill him whatever the reason was, make sure you do it right.
    Here they tried to do just that and faced the consequences throughout the movie.
    Lee's expressions in movies are so hard to tell when he is either mad or happy so playing this role was perfect for him.
    John Boorman's style is perfect and the sound editing is very impressive.
    This movie reminded…

    "I AM GROOT"
    Let me explain.....
    Marvel had balls of steel to try something different with new characters and a new story throwing in a mix of comedy.
    You know what!
    Everything works so well and now Marvel have another ball in the court.
    Are we going to have a trilogy of every famous character like they did for Iron Man, Captain America etc. I would love to see Rocket Raccoon's story fighting good and evil with Groot.
    The humor…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★★ Watched 29 Jul, 2014 2

    How I would love to grab a Deloren time machine load it up with a copy of this film on old cine film. Go back to 1970 and grab Charlton Heston, Roddy McDowall and Kim Hunter and than place them in a cinema and play this film. I would be filming their faces throughout because I am pretty sure they will think apes do talk in the future.
    Yes the story is a bit weak but this is a continuation…

    Put Dario and Da Vinci together and you have both of the worlds greatest people that can create the best art ever.
    Thinking over the next day I absolutely loved it.
    This film was a piece of art with its stylish direction and blown out full colour especially scenes that involved red.
    Dario has a way of creating horrific deaths on screen and in this are plenty of examples.
    You can see how Dario may have taken some scenes from…
