Summary=Good cinematography, excellent score and strong actors, combined with a simple yet haunting script and you have a scary horror movie that builds tension superbly and makes you jump out of your seat, without slashing and hacking everything in sight. A very good movie that shows the Philippine film industry knows about style, acting and horror. Unfortunately it suffers from a not so perfect DVD transfer.
Summary= A difficult documentary to watch. Timothy Treadwell’s lack of cognitive thought processes will both bother you and fill you with wonder. There are moments in this picture which could never be captured on film if it wasn’t for this simple minded hippy. Poor interviews, with the exception of a few intelligent people who save this movie from being the largest collection of dim wits ever assembled.
Title=Broken Flowers Soundtrack
Summary= A great mix of Western Jazz, Classical, Caribbean and Indie Rock which will impress the artistic, intelligent and Don Juan’s alike. Smooth listening from start to finish.
Title=Jimi Hendrix: Deluxe Edition
Summary=A good purchase for the performances, and in particular the acoustic performance, but add the interviews and the making of featurette, and you have a classic DVD for the fan. If you’re neither a fan of Hendrix or the guitar, then this is definitely not for you.
Summary=True horror, suspense and terror unflinchingly shown onscreen. Some rough dialogue early on can jar you out of the movie, but this has some truly terrifying moments. Natural performances, with a stunning turn from the actor playing the psychopath. The “true story” aspect really does hurt the movie and causes more problems at the end, if this had been left out the movie would have scored higher.
Summary= An impressive display by Bill Murray playing an over the hill Don Juan searching for his son. An artistic driven film which starts out slow but soon picks up and is very enjoyable. Slightly lacking in performance chemistry and affective dialogue. Good performances by Sharon Stone, Jessica Lange and Bill Murray.
The DVD release of the not so hot The Interpreter is to include the alternate ending, that’s the ending from the original script. IMDB have the story that Sydney Pollack was never happy with it and changed it after some test screenings. According to several reports, Pollack decided to reshoot … [Read More]
Summary=An uncompromising story, hard hitting, uncomfortable, but very meaty and enjoyable. With strong performances from a huge cast, and excellent writing, this makes for a very good movie. Watch out for some leads playing unexpected roles both excellently and not so. Well worth a watch for some thinking material and real entertainment.
I don’t get this at all it seems another wasteful, spotlight grabbing move by corrupt self-serving Politicians who can’t even see further than tomorrows newspaper popularity polls. Sigh…let me take a minute…right, I’m through it. A story from a little while ago on the BBC site tells us the details … [Read More]

Title=The Transporter 2
Summary=Snagging my demographic isn’t really all that hard. Show some amazing stunts, lots of fights with decent martial arts, and finally add in a hot chick with guns in her hands and you can pretty much guarantee a huge male audience will show up to see your film.
Title=A Sound Of Thunder
Summary=A Sci-Fi film can be goofy and dumb and yet still be fun at the same time. But A Sound Of Thunder fails at every level that you can think of. Nothing works in this movie and I can easily predict that this movie will be making my “10 worst movies of 2005” at the end of the year.
