    ★★

    Another film that carried on Carpenters downward spiral in the mid to late 90’s that he never managed to stop.
    Terrible acting, awful effects and a story that never really gets going. Even the much talked about street fight is laughable. The bubblegum line is great though!

    I refuse to go and see A Good Day to Die Hard because it looks horrendous so I put the original on whilst waiting for the Oscars to start and its still a classic.

    It highlights what's wrong with modern action movie making. It takes its time to introduce you to all the characters and makes you genuinely care about their fates, it has real action and no CGI or green screen and is thrilling and funny.

    Give me this, the original Lethal Weapon and Speed over the crap that is released week after week at the moment.

    I didn't think there'd be a better film than Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, then The Guest came out and it was touch and go for film of the year. Now it's no contest, Nightcrawler is the best film since The Dark Knight.

    Gyllenhaal gives the best performance I've seen since Day-Lewis in Gangs of New York, he's unnerving in every scene, it's the way he stands, looks at people and his voice, it truly is a mesmerising…
