  • The Forgotten

    The Forgotten 2014

    ★★½ Watched 23 Jun, 2016

    British horror check list:

    Council estate.
    Broken family.
    Self harm.
    Drugs and alchohol.
    Tough street girl
    Beatings and violence.

    The story has been done to death and the ending is easily forgotten.

    Not a terrible film, but how many times do we have to watch the same thing.

    Like we all think America is Central Park, so Americans must think Britain is one big council estate full of squats and pimps.

    The Dresser 2015

    ★★★ Watched 22 Jun, 2016

    Want to see Gandalf make hannibal Lector a cup of tea and offer a biccy? This is one of those who can out act all the cast or win the scene type of creations.

If you liked Birdman then you will love this, but I just get a bit bored with the 'I'm so much a more intense actor than you' scenario's.

For those who have seen this film and the film I just mentioned, we all know that Sandler can act very well. I think he just needs direction and when he has it, he is a very likable believable character in any film. What I really loved about this film is the subtle approach to an overused theme. Yes it is…

    House 2: The Second Story 1987

    Some films in every franchise just step away from the norm and create just epic horror fun.

    This film could happily sit in the adventure realm and it is entertaining because of it's quirky nature.

    I saw this about 25 years ago and it has aged but what it does well is just have fun. Other films like this are Waxwork and Waxwork through time and these films just take you on a journey .

    We need more films like these to entertain the little horror, adventurer freak addict that exists in us all.

    Also, skeleton cowboys are awesome - smile if you remember Bravestar....
