 Signs

Signs is Shyamalan’s third major feature film (fourth if you count the fact that he wrote the screenplay for Stuart Little – yeah I couldn’t believe it either! – anyway back to Signs!) It centres on the Hess family, living on the...

 Django/Django Strikes Again

Say the words Spaghetti Western & what springs to mind? Maybe the image of Clint Eastwood in a dusty poncho, a cigar butt wedged between his teeth glaring into the noon day sun fingers hovering at his pistol trigger in anticipation of the final showdown,...

 Psycho Beach Party

Surf’s up all you hep cats and hep kitties! Psycho Beach Party (2001) is a crazy movie that parodies and celebrates those kitschy beach party movies of the’60s and sci-fi films of the’50s. The prelude sets the tone of the movie perfectly. Chicklet...

 Men In Black II

The 1997 Barry Sonnenfeld movie Men in Black was something of a surprise hit. With its dark Batman-esque looks and quirky comedy it became one of the biggest grossing films of the year and won a legion of fans. The fact that it wasn’t actually very...

 Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season 3 Box Set

First off, if you’re not a fan, you should be. This is one of the defining TV shows of our generation. Second off, the DVDs are half the price in the US that they are in dear old Blighty. Drawback: We’re almost on season 6 but they’ve...

 G.I. Jane

G.I. Jane flopped at the box office. This is an incontrovertible fact. It was a dead flop. As said in the movie ‘America is just not ready to see its young women come home in body bags’. However I think this film is still worthy of merit....

 The Lord of the Rings: The Two Towers

For those who haven’t read the books, watching the middle film of a trilogy might seem like a frustrating, even unsatisfying experience. Not only does The Two Towers leave you on another year-long cliffhangar, but it also demands that you’ve...

 Die Another Day

Brosnan burst onto the big screen in the 1995 film Goldeneye, a film that reclaimed Bond as a force still to be reckoned with at the cinema. Sadly Brosnan and his films seem to get worse as they go along and those dizzy heights are long gone. The Bond...
