Summary=Scary, dark, and full of surprises and scares. A strong cast with realism rooted throughout the script and performances gives for an excellent horror film. Missing a little more depth (pardon the pun) but still a superb movie from Neil Marshall. You’ll be scared and on edge. A must see.
Title=Twist of Faith
Summary=One of the most powerful documentaries I’ve seen. Painful and tough to watch, but there are personal rewards to be seen and hope to be gleaned. Very intimate, personal, and real. Wonderfully edited and pulled together to tell a tough story of a surprising normal family still affected by sexual abuse.
Summary=Good although if you’ve seen the original it’s just not as good. Great performance from Connelly and good support. Excellent location and sets, but the second half just does everything too big for this slower paced horror\thriller. Not a great remake, but a good movie on it’s own.
Summary=Good light, entertainment. This is a popcorn movie and not something meaty or thoughtful. Well paced, good fun and funny. Chiklis, Evans and McMahon are great to watch. Although it’s not a Batman or Spiderman, it’s not as bad as it’s made out.

Summary=A fantastically written story and wonderfully brought to the big screen. Despite the very poorly filmed action sequences the movie shows an excellent return for the Batman and turning to the true Dark Knight for its inspiration. This does for the movie series what Batman: Year One has done to the graphic novels, told the definitive story of the birth of Batman and the characters around him.

Summary=John gives this video review of the classic H.G. Wells story brought to life by Steven Spielberg and Co.
