    Grabbers 2012

    ★★★½ Rewatched 26 Jun, 2016

    I came into Grabbers ready for a mediocre throw away indie monster flick with little in the way of quality and fully expected another dud added to the long list of substandard horror comedies. B-Jesus! I was wrong. Grabbers layered up the appreciation and just kept on giving.

    Set on a small Irish island Grabbers introduces us to some beautiful scenes of the luscious Irish coastal countryside with some rather stunning cinematography that oozed loveliness on Blu ray. Immediately it…

    Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1 2010

    ★★★★ Rewatched 26 Jun, 2016

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…

    Predator 1987

    ★★★★★ Watched 17 Oct, 2012 2

    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…
