    *There are a couple of minor plot spoilers in this review.*



    "Sometimes you just gotta say what the fuck, make a move!"


    If you’ve ever thought to yourself “I wonder what a Michael Mann directed teen comedy would look like?” Then you needn't look further. For all intents and purposes Paul Brickman’s “Risky Business” is a Michael Mann inspired film. Complete with atmospheric shots of neon-lit cityscapes, dark empty back-alleys, a Tangerine Dream score, a brooding lead man caught between…

    Aliens vs Predator: Requiem

    I planed on writing something for every "Alien" film but for this turd I just can't be arsed to put any work in so I'm shooting from the hip and writing my thoughts down as I watch the movie. Apologies in advanced for any grammatical mistakes.

    Five minutes in and the opening was surprisingly solid, it gives you a false sense of security that what you're going to watch might actually be good. The fathers arm melting off was pretty…

    So, after all the hyperbole surrounding the release of "Prey," most of which is deserved, I decided to go back and re-watch what is perhaps the most unfairly maligned film in the franchise, "Predators."

    I get it okay, I get it. Adrien Brody is not Arnie. Heck, he's not even Danny Glover. I respect his efforts to bulk up and try his hand as a leading action man but he just ain't THAT guy. It's an admirable attempt but his…

    "Predator" is one of my top ten favourite films of all time. I believe that it's actually my most most logged and reviewed film on this site. It's such a simple but perfectly executed story of man's primordial relationship with nature and his hierarchically position on the food chain. Arnie and his crack team of commandos might've been hotshots but once a bigger fish came along they were mere sport for it's leisure. It's only when Arnie devolves (as such)…

    "Charade" is the most Hitchcockian Hitchcock that Hitchcock never Hitchcocked.

  • Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

    ★★

    I think it goes without saying amongst fellow film aficionados that we all love films, especially the great ones. However, through years of watching films I've noticed that there seems to be that one film which is hugely popular, yet when you sit down to watch it you can't understand why it's held in such high esteem. For me it's only happened a couple of times, but I unfortunately have to add "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to the…
