    Review Avengers Assemble (2012)

    It gets the right balance of action, humor, character and awesome visuals. Arguably, one of the best ever superhero films.

    Review Firestarter (1984)

    Effects-laden movie with a political subtext has a fantastic cast but not much in the way of suspense. There’s also little emotive connection, as it’s hard to root for the fiery, pint-sized protagonist when she’s blowing up anyone and everyone in her wake. A great excuse for some awesome stunt...

    Review Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

    I don't really watch much TV or any TV movies (apart from a few of the outstanding shows). I just stick to film. Have to draw the line somewhere!!:emoji_nerd:

    Review Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

    Hmmm, I suppose. Hopefully they'll put a fresh spin on it and it's not starchy Oscar-bait.

    Review Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

    I think because it's a murder mystery, and the reveal is so unpredictable Because it's a murder mystery, and the reveal is so surprising, it'll take away from the remake's overall impact (knowing how it ends). No?

    Review Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

    Cheers Doc. That cast is unbelievable. Do you know who's in the Ingrid Bergman role, by any chance. I'm guessing it's Dench; could be serious Oscar-bait.

    Review Milla Jovovich

    Loved her in THE FIFTH ELEMENT. She's way better than those RESIDENT EVIL films.

    Review Murder on the Orient Express (2017)

    I know this may sound like a dumb question, but, I'm assuming that the 'reveal' will be the same as the original?? The reason I ask, is because I thought the twist was really good in the original. Little point in watching it, if you've seen the first film (if reveal is the same).

    Review Jeepers Creepers 2 (2003)

    Like the original, this has its moments with a few genuine, intermittent scares. Because it plays mostly for laughs, though, it comes across like a camp, tongue-in-cheek B movie (not necessarily a bad thing!).

    Review Jeepers Creepers (2001)

    Tense, well-executed horror that keeps its audience guessing for the first hour. It then descends into a gleefully wild gorefest that’s preposterous even by slasher movie standards.

    Review The Crow (1994)

    It's a violent, dark, visually arresting film, given added impact and allure due to the on-set tragedy. The revenge storyline is familiar and often hokey but there’s atmosphere and style to spare with a brooding, somber tone offset by striking production design and a suitable heavy metal soundtrack.

    Review The Beatles

    I regard A HARD DAY'S NIGHT as one of the best films of its time. Really captures the essence of the band and the era

    Review Inhumans (2017)

    That's a terrible photo!!

    Review David Fincher

    I'd say he tries to stay well clear of anyone that's 'high maintenance' or with emotional baggage. Rooney Mara had a difficult shoot on DRAGON TATTOO, but look at her reward- an Oscar nomination for Best Actress.
