The Nice Guys – The Wacky World of the 1970s

So you take a couple of Nice Guys put them together, take them to back the 1970s and throw in some amazing 70s music, a few cliches and some comedy to boot and what do you get, you get the brilliant...

Level Up takes one 20 something that has no motivation in life and his hard working girlfriend and throws them into a very fast paced action and high-concept adrenaline race through London to save a life! Matt (Josh Bowman -...

Guy Pearce impresses…again…as “The Rover”.

I am becoming ever more partial to Australian cinema.  And the futuristic thriller "The Rover" has only served to amplify my growing admiration. Set a decade into the future after a catastrophic financial collapse, this severely stark story can't help...

Absolutely Fabulous on the Big Screen Sweetie Darling – Review

Absolutely Fabulous has made its way to the big screen, much like a lot of the TV Series these days. Edina (Jennifer Saunders) and Pasty (Joanna Lumley) bring the larger than life characters back in the public eye for,...

“Bob and the Trees”: He can’t quit them.

Bob Tarasuk is a natural force in his first feature film leading role as a middle-aged, woe begotten woodsman in "Bob and the Trees".  Tarasuk's raw and realistic portrayal of a man busting his butt to keep from being eaten alive by financial disaster and...

London Has Fallen (15) – Blu-ray Review

I have to say that I enjoyed Olympus Has Fallen when it was released back in 2013, so I'd been looking forward to seeing London Has Fallen. So the other night I sat back with the Blu-ray of the...
