    Avengers: Age of Ultron 2015

    ★★★ Watched 23 Apr, 2015

    It's Team Frankenstein vs. The Monster with added soap-opera romance & rapid fire quips. It seemed very half baked to me, there's a lot of decent ideas and elements that just peter out in order to build momentum for the silly big ending & the next batch of films. Noticeably more made-by-committee than the last Avengers movie - when compared to Guardians of the Galaxy, The Winter Soldier and Iron Man 3 it slumps way short of the mark. The good news…

    Leprechaun: Origins 2014

    Watched 03 Sep, 2014

    A really overlong, generic monster movie with a smattering of gore here and there. An absolute shocker that someone would use the Leprechaun license to make a man in a rubber suit monster movie - no one liners, actually no lines at all as well as no human features for the Lep! He has a snout, a growl and Predator-vision... woop-de-fuckin-doo. Wasted license, which has put me in the mood to check out the earlier films featuring the excellent Warwick Davis over this year's Halloween period.

    Roar 1981

    ★★★ Watched 15 May, 2013

    It's practically a historical document about gigantic idiots. These people have a stupid, paper-thin plot for a film & decide to put $17 million, their gone-askew hippy minds & utterly stoned bodies on the line to prove that man & beasts with giant fucking teeth can co-exist. Which they can't. As this film proves.

    Reading the trivia on IMDb is like visiting, the amount of people mauled & bitten on this film is frightening. The fact that the driving force behind it was…

    Jaws 1975

    ★★★★★ Rewatched 21 Feb, 2013

    I watched this ON A BOAT! The Tall Ship in Glasgow, to be precise. In the hull, where it was cold and damp & we had uncomfortable chairs, I was sat right at the front with a crick in my neck & the film jammed at "we're gonna need a bigger boat" - but I didn't care! Jaws is my favourite movie of all time, this was my favourite experience on a boat ever.
