    Pixels 2015

    Watched 31 Jul, 2015 1

    Make no mistake about it “Pixels” is absolutely abhorrent but it’s hard to blame Adam Sandler for his complete refusal to feature in anything but the most insultingly terrible of family comedies. After the wild success of 2013’s “Grown Ups 2” can you really blame Sandler for once again resting on his tired and feckless laurels? He’s been playing the same down on his luck everyman for decades featuring in a string of truly appalling movies and yet audiences continue…

    Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 1

    An incredible movie in nearly all accepts. A stellar soundtrack combine with a film noir style to create a perfectly realized dark world. An interesting plot with a hint of morality, make the film more than a big brash action movie. Harrison Ford gives a layered performance to bring a likeable but rough character to the screen. Action that is fast and enjoyable but with a brutal edge inline with the films dark world. Maybe it's only flaw is the…
