  • Annabelle

    Annabelle 2014

    ★★ Watched 01 Jun, 2015 2

    Who would have thought the rushed spin off to one of the most original and well executed horror movies of the last five years, the excellent The Conjuring, would be so generic and uninspired? The answer is probably everyone, Annabelle was clearly made with money in mind rather than an artistic vision.

    Everything that made The Conjuring great has been stripped away from Annabelle, in favour of cheap jump scares and a boring predictable plot. Women experiences ghostly goings on,…

    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…
