  • Eden Lake 2008

    ★★★★ Rewatched 20 Jul, 2014

    I was suprised how truly horrible this film was, I am suprised how uncomfortable it made me feel and I’m sure that’s exactly what the makers were hoping it to do. It is very unforgiving and deals with such difficult subject matter that I don’t think this film withstands any more than a single watch. It is a bleak, brutal, and more importantly, a very realistic horror that I truly never ever wanted to watch again after my first viewing.…

    ★★★★½ Rewatched 19 Jul, 2014

I accepted the bizarre and very limited use of Time Travel by…

It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…

    ★★★★★ Watched 16 Sep, 2012

    A superb creation. Matthew Vaughn brings the previously little known comic book "Kick-Ass" to life on the big screen, and boy does he do a fantastic job. Kick-Ass follows the story of Dave Lizewski who's had enough of the bullies and takes matters into his own hands - becoming the wet suit clad hero Kick-Ass. The story is detailed with some excellent links to a huge number of films and comics. We are introduced to a host of great characters…
