    Paranormal Activity 3 2011

    ★★★ Rewatched 28 Nov, 2016

    The best of the PA bunch. Some slightly new ideas like the rotating camera adds to the lingering dread. There are some nifty little scares. However third time around the concept is getting a little tiresome and I can't completely forgive it for rehashing the simple yet admittedly very effective idea again.

The comedy…

    You've seen it a hundred times...but it never loses its charm. This classic Arnie Sci-Fi Action-er sees a crack team of commandos on a rescue mission in the Central American jungle. The mission goes from bad to worse as they soon realise a dangerous alien predator is hunting them down. This is one of my favourite Arnie films. It's tense, fast paced and full to the brim with enough action and bullets to take down a small country. It has…
