Mad Max: Fury Road



Mad-max-fury-new

Directed by: George Miller
Written by: George Miller
Cast: Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, Zoe Kravitz, Nicholas Hoult, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Riley Keough, Courtney Eaton
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

30 years after the release of 'Thunderdome' Mad Max is finally back. The lone wolf, the single warrior, the loner, the lone soldier, the outcast, the outsider, the man with no name...errr...named Max. The hype has been stratospheric for this one, I have gone into this expecting truly mind blowing things, the greatest action movie ever made? lets see, I will be brutally honest in every aspect...[more]...

Mean Machine



2002-mean_machine-1

Directed by: Barry Skolnick
Written by: Charlie Fletcher, Chris Baker, Andrew Day
Cast: Vinnie Jones, David Kelly, David Hemmings, Ralph Brown
Studio: Paramount Classics
Genre: Sports, Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

One of Vinnie Jones early performances where the world had not yet tired of his gritty, cockney, tough guy act. Yet shockingly this movie isn't about Jones being an unstoppable tough guy, it kinda is him being a tough guy though, just not the dialog free tough guy he usually is. In this remake of US movie 'The Longest Yard' Jones plays the main role which does actually require some genuine acting on his part. Not a great deal of course, lets not get carried away here, but some emotion is required and displayed...[more]...

Chappie



Chappie-final

Directed by: Neill Blomkamp
Written by: Terri Tatchell
Cast: Sharlto Copley, Dev Patel, Sigourney Weaver, Hugh Jackman
Studio: Sony Pictures
Genre: Action, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Blomkamp is back to finish off his distopian futuristic sci-fi trilogy that started with 'District 9' and 'Elysium', only he's not because this isn't a trilogy, ha! But in all fairness you could be forgiven for thinking it was, like I say all three are set in distopian futures and feature aliens, robots and powered exoskeleton suits...[more]...

Hooligans



2005-hooligans-2

Directed by: Lexi Alexander
Written by: Dougie Brimson, Josh Shelov, Lexi Alexander
Cast: Elijah Wood, Charlie Hunnam, David Alexander, Oliver Allison
Studio: Freestyle Releasing
Genre: Crime
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Along the same kinda lines as 'The Football Factory' but nowhere near as gritty and in your face, this film suffers from a slight case of Hollywood glitz.

Not just because Elijah Wood is in it, that is one reason of course, but the violence just seems more coordinated and setup, whilst the many British actors in the film all have rather hokey cockney accents which seem rather forced, some not all.

The film centres around West Ham United Firm 'GSE: Green Street Elite' although the real firm is called 'ICF: Inner City Firm' and follows the guys around as they go to matches and plan on fights with rival firms. Nothing much different from other 'firm' flicks but the added plot of Yankee Wood who slowly fits in against his UK based sisters wishes and grows to enjoy the lifestyle.

No one really that well known in the film accept Wood who is TOTALLY out of place in this type of flick but I guess that's the idea right. Only thing is you simply can't see Wood ever getting tough enough to do what he does in the film, never in a month of Sundays.

Good entertainment but using allot of artistic license and second best to 'The Football Factory' and 'The Firm'...if your into these types of films.

Maggie



Maggie_poster

Directed by: Henry Hobson
Written by: John Scott 3
Cast: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Abigail Breslin, Joely Richardson
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Drama, Horror
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Well its a pretty safe bet that many of you may have missed this Arnie comeback flick, or maybe you heard of it but it completely fell away and was never seen or heard of again. This is because it had a limited theatrical release, why you might ask? well probably because its not really much of a typical huge Arnie blockbuster that many will clamber to see. Yes its a zombie infestation movie, but its a level-headed, sensible, emotional, drama based zombie infestation movie. At no point will you see anyone flying through the air with two machine guns, nailing hordes of flesh eaters, or using amazing martial arts techniques...errr etc...All you need is your hanky, I suppose...[more]...

Speed Zone



1989-speed-zone-poster1

Directed by: Jim Drake
Written by: Michael Short
Cast: John Candy, Donna Dixon, Matt Frewer, Joe Flaherty
Studio: Orion Pictures
Genre: Comedy, Action
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Much like the previous two movies this one opens with yet another red Lamborghini Countache, but this time its tearing down a small winding wooded country road, a change from the open desert. Naturally right behind this Italian supercar the cops are in hot pursuit. In the meantime Lee Van Cleef, in a very small cameo, plays an elderly grandfather teaching his grandson how to skip stones across a small lake. Van Cleef tells the young boy how to throw the stone at just the right angle so it can skip across the water...[more]...

Smokey & the Bandit Part III



1983-smokey-and-the-bandit-part-iii-poster1

Directed by: Dick Lowry
Written by: Stuart Birnbaum, David Dashev
Cast: Jackie Gleason, Jerry Reed, Paul Williams, Pat McCormick
Studio: Universal
Genre: Comedy, Crime
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Why is this sequel called 'Part 3'? beats me, sounds strange really, like an old fashioned tale. Other than that its business as usual for a third time accept for the fact that the Bandit is no longer with us on this road trip. Yep for this third movie Reynolds has flown the coop leaving Gleason to hold the fort on his lonesome. The only other returning cast member is Reed as the old Snowman...[more]...

Cannonball Run II



1984-cannonball-run-ii-poster1

Directed by: Hal Needham
Written by: Hal Needham, Albert S. Ruddy, Harvey Miller
Cast: Burt Reynolds, Dom DeLuise, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr.
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This movie kicks off much in the same way as the first movie. A white Lamborghini Countach is roaring down a desert highway, the engine throbbing as it tears up the tarmac yet again. It pulls up behind a cop car, teasing it, then blows past it. Next up we see another familiar SPEED LIMIT 55 sign, the Lambo breaks next to it and out jumps Catherine Bach, she obstructs the sign with another so it now reads SPEED LIMIT 155. She jumps back into the Lambo and it screeches off into the distance, cop car in tow. The chase continues until the Lambo pulls into a construction site and gets its white body colour jet washed off to reveal its original red body colour...[more]...

The Cannonball Run



1981-the-cannonball-run-poster1

Directed by: Hal Needham
Written by: Brock Yates
Cast: Brock Yates, Roger Moore, Farrah Fawcett, Dom DeLuise
Studio: Fox
Genre: Comedy
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

This movie opens with a black Lamborghini Countach tearing down an empty highway, a sun-kissed highway at dawn, the sound of the engine thundering. Instantly the movies main soundtrack kicks in with its toe tapping beat, the bold stark red credits role, instantly you know this song is cool and you're gonna like it. The jet black Lambo sweeps over the horizon (now set against a clear blue sky), behind it, following closely is a blue Pontiac Firebird/Firebird Trans Am police car, both cars are ripping up the tarmac. By this point if you're attention has not been snagged, or you're not impressed by the sheer sex on wheels, then you're clearly not a petrolhead...[more]...

Wolfen



1981-wolfen-poster1

Directed by: Michael Wadleigh
Written by: David Eyre, Michael Wadleigh
Cast: Albert Finney, Diane Venora, Edward James Olmos, Gregory Hines
Studio: Warner Bros.
Genre: Horror, Thriller
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

Adapted from a novel of the same name, yet after a bit of reading the movie is quite different from the book. With a title like this you'd think this film was about werewolves, but you'd be wrong. In fact it kinda depends on what source you go by, the book is sort of about werewolves, a species of creature that are descended from wolves, intelligent and probably more like werewolves than in this film. In the movie there are no werewolves and no creatures descended from the wolf line...[more]...

Last Knights



Lastknightsposterlarge

Directed by: Kazuaki Kiriya
Written by: Michael Konyves
Cast: Clive Owen, Morgan Freeman, Cliff Curtis, Aksel Hennie, Ayelet Zurer
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action, Adventure
Official Site:
Plot:

Review:

The title doesn't inspire much does it, much like the drab 'First Knight', remember that? Anyhoo as you can probably guess this is all about medieval knights, the twist being its an adaptation of the classic historical Japanese tale, Forty-Seven Ronin. So its 47 Ronin...but with medieval knights, so predictable I'm amazed it hasn't been done already...[more]...
