  • Ford v Ferrari

    Ford v Ferrari

    ★★★★

    Easily the finest racing themed film since Ron Howard's 2013 Rush, Ford v Ferrari tackles Ford's attempt in building a car that can win against Ferrari at La Mans. Assembling a fine cast of actors, this movie is a gearhead's dream snd a must see. Caroll Shelby was tasked by Ford to build a car that could compete and beat Ferrari at Le Mans after a bid by Ford to buy Ferrari fell through. Ford's prestige was in the gutter…

  • Conan the Barbarian

    Conan the Barbarian

    ★★★★

    John Millius' action fantasy film Conan the Barbarian is a thrilling film. The film has its imperfections, which I will get into in just a moment, but for the most part the film is very exciting and is pure fun, if you can forgive its flaws. The films weakness is in the dialogue delivery, and some bits of the dialogue are very cheesy, but in the end, who cares? Conan the Barbarian is a fun action fantasy film based on…

  • Sleepy Hollow: Behind the Legend

    Sleepy Hollow: Behind the Legend

    ★★★½

    Sleepy Hollow is among my top Tim Burton films, the film is a great , often overlooked horror film that I personally feel deserves more credit than it deserves. This making is very much in depth, interesting and thorough in detailing the making of this modern classic.

  • The Last of the Legendary Outlaws

    The Last of the Legendary Outlaws

    ★★★½

    A very interesting look at the events portrayed in the film following the exploits of legendary outlaw John Dillinger, this rather short feature is an entertaining affair to watch if you've seen the film. It may be short, but it offers a condensed version of Dillinger's criminal career. This short covers dnough ground in its run time to at least give you some knowledge on Dillinger, and although not a fully in depth documentary, it is quite interesting and well…

  • Antichrist

    Antichrist

    ★★★

    Lars Von Trier is a unique filmmaker that has a style that I would describe as eccentric, haunting, yet somewhat beautiful. With Antichrist he crafts a film that is horrifying and unforgettable. The cast here is impeccable and Trier’s choices are terrific. Willem Dafoe and actress Charlotte Gainsberg deliver great performances here, and the story itself takes its time to unfold, with steady pacing, which is key in telling an effective story. Antichrist may not be a film for everyone,…

  • The Expendables 3

    The Expendables 3

    ★½

    This is a bland, poorly constructed film considering its star power. The Expendables 3 lacks anything remotely good about it, and relies on the same old formula in order to create its thrills. The film didn’t grab my attention like the previous two, and to be honest, I thought it was a waste of time. The film really could have been something great, considering some of the action stars attached to the project, but in the long run, it’s just…
