  • Interview with the Vampire

    Interview with the Vampire 1994

    ★★ Watched 02 Jul, 2015

    Tom Cruise and Brad Pritt playing a vampire duo in a violent drama film with some horror elements sounds amazing on paper, so how on Earth did director Neil Jordan screw it up so much?

    There's around fifteen minutes of Interview with the Vampire that really feels special, I can't lay the sequence out without heavy spoilers but you'll probably know what I'm talking about if you've seen the film.

    Visually the film is quite ugly, and the script is…

    Terminator Genisys 2015

    There is no wedding, no hangover or nobody missing this time around. The Hangover Part III sees the Wolf pack attempting to track down Mr Chow…

  • Blade Runner

    Blade Runner 1982

    ★★★★★ Watched 08 Jan, 2013 2

    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…
