|81 T8||Louis Theroux: Behind Bars (2008) - 29 Dec 2008
"Highly entertaining documentary that I would honestly consider insightful as well. Louis may ask seemingly simple questions, that he obviously has an idea of the answer, but they're questions that hardly get asked, as you can see from the reactions of the interviewees. I do prefer Louis less aggressive persona he's adopted since his Weird Weekend pieces. Great stuff."
|86 T9||From Dusk Till Dawn (1996) - 27 Feb 2010
""I'm peachy, Kate. The world is my oyster, except for the fact that I just rammed a wooden stake into my brother's chest because he turned into a vampire, even though I don't believe in vampires. Aside from that unfortunate business, everything is hunky-dory." I doubt there's another movie on the planet that pulls a U-Turn like this. George Clooney is superb and makes the black humour work perfectly. Highly recommended vampire killing flick that has no illusions of being realistic."
|93 T10||The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers (2002) - 24 Feb 2007
"While I'd say it does suffer from neither opening a story or ending, although this isn't a problem if you've seen the other films or read the books, everything about it is fantastic as with the other two films in the trilogy."
|74 T6||Signs (2002) - 14 Aug 2007
"An engrossingly and frightening movie up until the aliens attempt to break into Hess' (Gibson) house. At this point the movie takes a complete u-turn from amazing to downright ridiculous. Do yourself a favour and turn it off at that point. The first part of the movie is downright excellent and it's so disappointing to see the rest."
|82 T8||Kill Zone (2005) - 27 Feb 2007
"Some great action and cinematography. Plot's a wee bit thin but it does at least try to get across a positive moral message, I'd say it succeeds. And damn, what an ending."
|77 T7||Arn: The Knight Templar (2007) - 15 Dec 2008
"Arn suffers from an overly long amount of time setting up Arn's character. The first hour of the film is spent on his melodramatic upbringing which. It isn't bad but dragged out. However, once he becomes a Templar the movie really gets going and kicks some serious medieval-movie ass. Visually the film obviously borrows from Kingdom of Heaven but you can forgive them for that because that KoH was gorgeous. This is the most expensive Scandinavian movie ever and totally worth the money."
|78 T7||The Hunt for Red October (1990) - 28 Feb 2010
"In technical terms this isn't a great movie by any stretch. None of the cinematography is really impressive nor anything else in terms of film making. However it is still a strong film due to the story and magnificent casting. Even the bit parts have good actors. There appears to be a lot of dislike for Connery's accent but he's speaking English. If you really find that someone speaking English with a Russian accent is somehow more realistic than just speaking English you're deluding yourself."
|87 T9||Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog (2008) - 09 Mar 2009
"Totally hilarious. I don't really consider it new like some though, it runs like a mockumentary except with a blog in place of the documentary. Still it's still an absolute laugh riot. Neil Patrick Harris is hilarious and Nathan Fillion is fantastic. If you're a Whedon fan this is, without a doubt, completely essential viewing. If you're not but you enjoy goofy comedies that don't take themselves too seriously then this is still essential viewing."
|86 T9||Ginger Snaps: Unleashed (2004) - 09 May 2010
"Better than the first in my opinion and it honestly features the most gruesome and inventive death in any horror movie I have ever seen. The style, editing and soundtrack blend together perfectly to set the mood for the film, while it still retains the dark humor of the first. This is one of the best horror movies ever made."
|12 T1||Street Fighter (1994) - 27 Feb 2007
"Absolutely awful. Bad plot, terrible action and absolutely awful acting. However, upon recent viewing I did find one golden gem: "For you, the day Bison graced your village was the most important day of your life. But for me... it was Tuesday.""
