Darren – Movie Reviews 101


Predator was one of the very first adult action movies I ever saw and while it definitely isn’t the best movie from 1987 it is easily one of the most fun movies from the year. We get Arnold Schwarzenegger facing off against an alien creature with better weapons then him in the middle of the jungle. A…

I would like to firstly apologise to the fans of great cinema, and the professional bloggers who will be discussing the fantastic movies made and released back in the 90’s. I’m not here to do that, I’m afraid. Instead, I’d like to talk about my all time favourite movies from that decade, which is when I was still…

Favourite Video Game Adaptation

Over the past 25 odd years videos games have become a new stream of entertainment, so naturally Hollywood has decided to jump on the bandwagon and turn these lengthy stories into one of films, a lot get highly criticised but for the fans of film that never played the games we get certain stories that work on film. With the final chapter of the Resident Evil franchise coming to the cinema it is now time for us to pick our favourite video game adaptations.

Give her site a gander if you’d like.  Enough from me, here is Kira and her review of Reservoir Dogs.

Yesssssssss, I know, this review is going to probably be quite familiar with some people – it is one I posted over a year ago on my blog, but when the opportunity to take part in this blogathon came up, I couldn’t think of another film that defined the 90s so well for me. Apologies if it seems lazy, but this is one of my all-time favourites, and it just so happens to be from the…

Life Is Beautiful Review – The Princess, The Clown And The Nazis

This is the second time I’ve tried to write a review for Life Is Beautiful. The first time, I felt I didn’t do justice to the film. A film I first watched way-back in the late nineties. I remember distinctly my eldest brother bringing the film back from the video shop (video shops were places where you went and rented cassettes of the latest films. Cassettes are, oh never mind, I’m not that old!) and my complete lack of enthusiasm. I…
