  • Jaws 3-D 1983

    Watched 21 Jul, 2014 2

    For a film featuring a giant killer shark Jaws 3 is surprisingly tepid.

    Mainly due to the fact that the shark doesn't get nearly enough screen time. Instead we are faced with human and their relationship and business problems.

    Jaws 3 is nothing more than a shameless cash in. Somehow Dennis Quaid manage to survive this abomination with bis career in tact. As a movie, it's only redeeming feature is its cheesiness.

    This has no right to share a franchise…

  • Dawn of the Planet of the Apes 2014

    ★★★★ Watched 21 Jul, 2014

    An Ape riding a fucking horse whilst firing TWO machine guns is pretty much what cinema was made for.

    Stoker is phenomenal.

    It's as dreamy as it is taught. As beautiful as it is horrific. It's The Tree of Life with A screenplay. An outstanding screenplay at that. It has been said that…

  • Skyfall 2012

    ★★★★★ Watched 26 Oct, 2012 40

    Sam Mendes proves his Bond making credentials, and confirms his excellent film making credentials.

    Skyfall certainly is an excellent film. The best Bond film in 48 years. This is a proper spy film, and James Bond, as a character is a proper spy.

    As a Bond fan this film pleased me in every way. You have to hand it to the film makers, it takes massive balls to put a 4 minute title sequence 10 minutes into a massive film…
