a solid British gangland flick, with links to true events, 5 February 2014
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

the rettendon range rover murders has become a franchise, four films,7 books, countless websites, more movies in the pipeline, is that a bad thing, judge for yourself. this movie though takes place 18 years after the infamous range rover murders, and is about a group of lads who have essentialy became the new essex boys, only smarter, and more ruthless. there is a pretty good story here, and people who know the essex boys/range rover murders story well will find a lot of good twists and turns and references to the true events, and one character from the true story appears here, so there is a lot of fun to be had here if you are a fan of the story. the movie is actually a direct sequel to 'the fall of the essex boys', witch was a true account of the essex boys reighn of terror, and while this movie isn't as good as that, its a solid sequel all around and i recommend it to people who like the story, and enjoyed the previous essex boys films.

a great ferrell comedy, its no Talladega nights, but its a step up from the other guys, 19 May 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

i am a huge will ferrell fan and have enjoyed pretty much all his movies, apart from the other guys, i just didn't find that movie very funny. ferrell had his moments but for the most the most part it fell short. yet this bizarre little movie that sees ferrell speaking Spanish for the whole film, as do all the cast, its a spoof of Mexican soap dramas, and its very very funny, this movie made me laugh a lot, and thats exactly what i want from a ferrell movie, the Spanish didn't bother me either, some of it was very funny, and i don't think it would of been as funny spoken in English. the woman who plays sonia is drop dead gorgeous, and is a blast to watch, some of the backgrounds, and miniature sets are hilarious, it might be in Spanish, but this is classic ferrell, the movie also has some funny, but quite violent shoot outs, and all the cast do well in there roles. i loved it and I'm sure that most ferrell fans will love it too, its a risky movie to make, and i think it payed off for him, as this is a brilliant comedy, that will go nice next to Talladega nights, anchorman, blades of glory, semi pro, step brothers, while its not quite as good as those movies, its much better than the other guys, a night at the roxbury, superstar,land of the lost. go and watch this movie for a giggle

Circle of Pain (2010) (V)
fun, low budget beat em up with some good choreography, 30 April 2013
7/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

look i no this movie is not a great movie, its far from it. but it was a fun throwback to the late eighties/early nineties fighting flicks. the acting is bad for the most part, but bare in mind these are fighters not actors, there are a couple of decent performances though, and the production values are pretty good. this is a lads movie no doubt, there is nudity, fighting, nice cars. obviously the script is bad, but its a fun movie that delivers what u expect from it, some nice brutal fight scenes, that are very well choreographed for the budget. i like these sort of movies, there not great, but they are fun, its not as good as 'damage' or 'lionheart', but its good entertainment, if your into this sort of thing

what a dissopiontment, the worst chainsaw movie since 'the next generation', 27 April 2013
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

when i first read about this movie i was looking forward to it, i liked the fact that it was a direct sequel to the original, even though every sequel has claimed to be. and in the end this was worse than them bar 'the next generation, even though i find that movie more entertaining. i didn't hate this movie, it was just so average, the kills were there, as was leatherface, but it was all too average, and what they try and turn leatherface into is as ridicules as part 4 trying to turn him into a travsvestite. i did not like this movie at all, they guy who played leatherface wasn't bad, but the script was bad, the direction boring, and everything was just cash in. the new line chainsaw movies are much better than this movie. one of the worst of the series

i really wanted to like this movie...but, 23 March 2013
4/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

as i was browsing through my local DVD shop the other day i stumbled on this movie, now i love horror movies, and horror comedies and this looked right up my street, redneck zombies, cool, came with a comic book nice, was looking forward to some sweet gore, and loads of laughs, and got neither, nor did i get my redneck zombies i was promised. the movie was poor in every way, some OK special effects nothing to write home about. the lead actress was OK, but it could of been much better, and it thought it was clever but it wasen't. now look i love me a bit of horror cheese ya know 'evil dead 2' 'braindead' and 're animater'. but where as they were genuinely funny and meant to be, i was surprised at how serious the thing tried to be, dashes of humour here and there, but it was trying to be to dark and fails. there was one scene that was pretty cool, when a dude gets boiled/fried but other than that this did not impress me one bit, its so far from the cult classic its supposed to be stay away, its just trash

great movie with some genuine drama, fighting delivers, 17 February 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

this movie was no doubt made for the male audience, there is fighting, hot chicks, and pumping tunes. but i think this movie would be OK for the family, there is nothing explicit, the fight scenes are well done without being too brutal, and the cast are top notch, terrence howard is as great as ever. this was a movie i enjoyed very much, and i related to the main character a lot, read into that what you will, but i felt his struggle, and his need for acceptance, we can all fight, but some need to, some have too, and this movie was a great ride, i enjoyed it very much, the acting was great, the story above average for this sort of film. i was expecting an action movie and thats kind of what i got, but i also got a good drama, and the ending put a smile on my face, job well done id say

a solid retelling of a famous story, yes it isn't true, who cares, 15 February 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

the original amityville horror is easily one of the best haunted house movies, apparently based on true events that have turned out to be false, never the less its a story that makes a good movie and the original is that, the second installment amityville 2 the possession was a good but a bit bizarre sequel, the third installment amityville 3d is a well made, creepy at times but ultimately boring movie, the rest of the series i didn't bother with as they abandoned the house and backstory, until last years 'the amityville haunting, and the less said about that the better. i hadn't seen this movie since it came out, because im not a huge fan of remakes, and it looked identical to the original i give it a swerve, but the other day i clocked it on DVD for the price of 2 quid and i thought yeah ill give it a go, and im glad that i did, its easily the best in the series since the second movie, and ryan reynolds is great in his role. i don't think it betters the original, but its a great retelling and the scares are sharper and more frequent, i recommend to the right crowd

B.T.K. (2008) (V)
a good horror movie based on a shocking true story, 5 February 2013
8/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

the b.t.k killer was a serial killer who got away with his murders for many years until he made the mistake of starting them again leading to his capture, dennis rader was his name and his crimes appalling, watch the documentary 'i survived b.t.k' and tell me it doesn't upset you. wisely though the director of b.t.k has chose to tell the story but make the murders all fictioniled, as to not upset any of the real families, best thing really, and the movie still tells the story anyway, its brutal, tense and suspenseful, and kane hodder is perfectly cast as rader, its a low budget movie, but very well made. the movie is accurate on most things, apart from the murders obviosly, in reality the b.t.k also killed kids, he luckily doesn't in this, although one tense scene, at least hints to it, i recommend this movie to horror fans as it delivers the goods and has true life foundations

one of the worst of the true serial killer boom of the early noughties, 5 February 2013
5/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

nightstalker is based on the true story of richard ramirez, a serial killer who was terrorising l.a in the 80's. the real case is fascinating, this movie is not, despite a decent cast, and true life foundations, nightstalker never realises what it wants to be, on one hand its pretty accurate with some of the murders, and the guy playing ramirez is pretty good, but the movie is filled with this hyper editing whenever the nightstalker is in his car, and we see a demon alter ego and its as pathetic as it sounds, too flashy for a low budget movie, and while it aims to be scary and unerving it fails, some scenes of the murders and aftermath are good and atmospheric, and its a shame because it could of been a good movie of the story, but the director just hasent got a clue, so we are left with a film of the two halves and neither of them any good. there is another movie based on the nightstalker buts its supposed to be worse than this so i think ill give it a swerve, shame this story deserves a good movie

one of the best serial killer biopics made, the movie the others want to be, 5 February 2013
9/10

*** This review may contain spoilers ***

henry portrait of a serial killer is a brilliant movie based on the exploits of henry lee lucas, a serial killer from Texas who confessed to killing hundreds of people in the 80's, this movie is based on his confessions, even though most turned out to be lies, all though he did murder at least 11 people. michael rooker is great as henry and gives a truly great horror performance. of all the serial killer biopics this is still probably the most gruesome and disturbing, with only the secret life of jeffrey dahmer and ted bundy coming close, to some of the depravity in this movie, it isn't for everyone as its very gruesome and sick, but it remains a brilliant horror movie, and a classic of modern cinema, i highly recommend
