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 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. Because of this bad experience, my judgement on the film maybe skewed, but now I know what happens I don’t think re-watching it would benefit. Read the rest of this entry »

28 08 2008

Since ‘The Kingdom’ was released at the cinema, I’ve wanted to see it, but thanks to reasons unknown I didn’t get the chance to during its original release. 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.
