• The Suicide Squad

    The Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    Having just watched the first Suicide Squad yesterday and been pleasantly surprised I was looking forward to seeing what magic James Gunn was going to bring to the show and I wasn’t disappointed at all . DC have gone all Guardians of the Galaxy and that’s a really good thing .  

    Supervillains Harley Quinn, Bloodsport, Peacemaker and a collection of nutty cons at Belle Reve prison join the super-secret, super-shady Task Force X as they are dropped off at…

  • Suicide Squad

    Suicide Squad

    ★★★★

    I’m not quite sure why it’s taken me five years to getting around to seeing Suicide Squad. 
    Perhaps it’s because I heard it wasn’t very good but having now seen it , I realise that it’s a DC fanboy gripe thing and that’s the reason it had bad ratings because it really is a pretty good film . 

    A secret government agency recruits some of the most dangerous incarcerated super-villains to form a defensive task force. Their first mission: save…

  • For the Passion of Mankind

    For the Passion of Mankind

    ★★★★

    The story of a proud grave digger during the Ebola breakout and how it still affects his mental health. It's just a shame that his hopes rest with a non existent god. Heartbreaking.

    I watched For The Passion Of Mankind, in my goal to watch a movie produced from every country in the world - This was Sierra Leone

  • Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

    The Indiana Jones movies are what they are . 
    Harmless fun , all action films that don't blow me away but do the job of entertaining for a couple of hours . 
    This was Steven Spielberg’s favourite of the franchise and I probably agree with him - just . 


    In 1938, after his father Professor Henry Jones, Sr. goes missing while pursuing the Holy Grail, Professor Henry "Indiana" Jones, Jr. finds himself up against Adolf Hitler's Nazis again to stop…

  • Embattled

    Embattled

    ★★★½

    Embattled is a well acted , nuts and bolts , fight film that although,  very watchable, is ultimately let down by the final act . 

    Stephen Dorff is excellent as the greedy , selfish MMA champion , who treats both of his families really bad because of his own upbringing. Darren Mann who plays his son Jett is great too but here is where lies the big problem with the film . 

    The father and son may have a history…

  • Raw

    Raw

    ★★★½

    This is a very strange film . I’m not normally a big fan of weird films that have no obvious meaning but there is something about Raw that is is kind of mesmerising. 


    This is the story of a young woman, studying to be a vet, develops a craving for human flesh but she’s not the only one…. 

    This is an 18 certificate and for good reason but it never steps over the boundaries of indecency. It’s classed as a…

  • Seraglio

    Seraglio

    How did you know it was me who watched this ?

  • Superman II

    Superman II

    It’s amazing how your memory plays tricks with you . I haven’t seen this film for nearly forty years and I always remembered it as the best Superman film. Watching it again , i now realise how bad this film really is but I suppose as a 13 year old kid , back in the day , I wasn’t so cynical. 

    Superman agrees to sacrifice his powers to start a relationship with Lois Lane, unaware that three Kryptonian criminals he…

  • Erik the Viking

    Erik the Viking

    I love Terry Jones . He’s directed some of the greatest comedy films ever made in my opinion - Sadly Erik The Viking is the only film that has blotted his copybook in my opinion . 

    Tim Robbins plays Erik the Viking and with his men they travel across the sea to find Valhalla to ask the gods to end the Age of Ragnarok.

    The great film critic Roger Ebert said of this film . “An Utterly worthless exercise in…

  • The Rack

    The Rack

    ★★★★

    This is the story of a decorated Korean War hero inexplicably collaborates with the enemy while interred in a POW camp and is court-martialed.

    Paul Newman plays the soldier who charged and he is excellent in the role . Newman was meticulous with acting method and you can tell his work with the Actors Studio really paid off here . 

    I was surprised how serious the film was. It’s not only about what a man is forced to do under…

  • Jolt

    Jolt

    This film was bad .
    No hang on , it was worse than bad it was bloody terrible . 
    It’s a long time since I saw a film so disjointed as Jolt and it’s definitely the worst Amazon Original film I’ve ever seen .

    A bouncer with a slightly murderous anger-management problem that she controls with the help of an electrode-lined vest she uses to shock herself back to normalcy whenever she gets homicidal. After the first guy she's ever…

  • High Ground

    High Ground

    ★★★★

    High Ground is one of those really good films that seemed to have got lost in the Covid Pandemic. Released last year to an open air audience in Perth Australia it’s seems to have gone under the radar since . Which is a shame

    In a bid to save the last of his family, Gutjuk, a young Aboriginal man, teams up with ex-soldier Travis to track down Baywara, the most dangerous warrior in the Territory, his uncle.

    The first thing…
