|80 92%||The Dark Crystal (1982) - Apr 06, 2015
"Scored from the childhood impact on me rather than on its reviewing now. The story is dark which is why it is amazing for children - all the classic fairy tales have a sadistic edge. The plot though has been done in so many other films under different guises. Best quote "I Don't Have Wings" Answer "Of course not you're a boy." All the kids took that as a stunningly obvious answer?!"
|46 51%||At the Earth's Core (1976) - Feb 19, 2014
"A doctor who film in all but name."
|44 48%||Human Universe (2014) - Feb 19, 2015
"Well made but nothing you will not have seen on other BBC science docs - even Brian Cox looking dreamy focusing on the distance and whispering "when I was a boy I looked up to the stars......""
|90 97%||Nice Work (1989) - Feb 20, 2014
"Riveting. The novel itself was a huge hit and was the fastest work to go from publication to being listed on the canon for school literature exams. But this dramatisation can justly be said to have been part of that success and to have enhanced it. Haydn Gwynne IS the Dr. Robyn Penrose, and Warren Clarke IS the Vic Wilcox. And Dr Robyn Penrose will always be that Venus coming out of the clamshell! :)"
|80 92%||Mad Max: Fury Road (2015) - Jul 22, 2015
"Outstanding - action and aesthetic"
|77 90%||Gravity (2013) - Dec 29, 2015
"Audio-visual feast rather than narrative."
|40 43%||Fifty Shades of Grey (2015) - Nov 29, 2015
"A cultural event - but pretty low grade entertainment. Some erotic tension - but not much else. If I wanted to read a stream of emails, I would not go to to a film. The worst thing about it is it seems set for a sequel."
|33 32%||No Minor Vices (1948) - Jan 14, 2017
"No major virtues."
|24 20%||The Killing (2011) - Nov 13, 2015
"How to destroy a great Danish series"
|85 95%||Escape from the Planet of the Apes (1971) - Nov 16, 2014
"The same shock value of the opening sequence - and the twist at the end with plenty of hard questions in the middle. A worthy successor."
