Film Review – 30 Days Of Night (2007)

1 09 2008

Barrow, Alaska, the northernmost town in the U.S., where every winter the area is plunged into darkness as the sun sets, and doesn’t rise again for 30 days.

Film Review – The Strangers (2008)

29 08 2008

I have debated whether to write a review for this film or not. The screening of ‘The Strangers’ that I was in, seemed to be filled to the brim with the dregs of society. I felt as though I was sat in a youth club, with not many people seeming to be 15 or over. With every jump and scare in the film, the whole audience burst with laughter and talked loudly for what seemed like a long time after. With quite a lot of scares, there was a lot of laughter, and a lot of LOUD talking. In fact I can’t think of the last time I had an experience as bad as I had tonight in a cinema screen.

So came the waiting for it to be released on DVD, that time came around and I still didn’t get around to getting a copy and seeing it. Finally I managed to get the film through my door and still I didn’t watch it. What is up with me? So tonight I eventually put it on and sat and watched… and I am glad I did.

Film Review – Rambo (2008)

26 08 2008

For reasons quite unknown to me I decided to watch the latest installment in the Rambo series tonight. Somehow, in my near 22 years I haven’t seen any of the previous films, so I went into this without any nostalgia for the character, other than second hand excitement from others when I was a kid in school.
