  1.  "..VERY COOL CAST.."

    Posted: 

    This is certainly one of the years most outrageous yet brilliantly entertaining movies, Michael bay has done an amazing job as the director, this is probably the best he's done in years if not ever, the story is based on true events as crazy as they are, a wickedly amusing plot involving three bodybuilders in search of more in their lives and wanting to live the dream, they decide to kidnap a rich criminal and steal his life with disastrous consequences, its funny fresh and very original, the cast is amazing, Mark Wahlberg and Dwayne Johnson are both brilliant and were meant to star together as they make such a good odd couple team, this is a must see you wont be disappointed

  2.  "..GREAT SCI-FI.."

    Posted: 

    This is actually a very surprising sci-fi movie and I for one like others wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it as its based on the novel by the same author as twilight, this is certainly nothing like twilight so rest easy, it has its level of romance of course in the story but it doesn't smother the story to the point of vomiting like twilight does, romance aside this is a beautiful looking sci-fi movie with an original concept, great locations and settings, and good looking effects, the cast is very good, Saoirse Ronan as usual steals the show and makes a perfect lead, a very beautiful actress with so many sides to her acting talent, she makes the movie very comfortable to watch, Diane Kruger is also amazing as the seeker who is trying to stop her, the villains are very stylish with their visually cool costumes and smart looking vehicles and gadgets, they really stand out against the surroundings where the movie is filmed. This is certainly worth checking out if you like a good sci-fi, it's not heavy on action but its well paced out, the bluray has great picture quality.

  4.  "..TOP ACTION MOVIE.."

    Posted: 

    Personally I think this is one of the most badass action movies since the days of die hard and under siege, this movie is so oldschool in its execution it's a fan boys dream, this movie basically is under siege 3 the only thing missing is Steven Seagal, it's a straight forward story about a gang of terrorists taking over one of the most secure location on earth the white house and one man has to stop them, Gerard Butler is awesome as the lead, great actor, he is a one man army on the inside fighting alone to rescue the president and kill the bad guys!! Its predictable yes but that's the way it always was with the oldschool classics, good guy kills bad guys!! A lone hero!! Great action scenes massive amounts of devastation and explosions and cool kills as Butler does his job as ex Special Forces turned presidential guard, if you love the original two die hard movies and under siege movies then this is a must, its oldschool in every way, great fun, very entertaining!!!! Director Antoine Fuqua has done some fine movies over the year but this is his best along with training day!! There are some good features on the here too, gag reel and a few featurettes of behind the scenes!!!

  6.  "..VERY COOL HORROR GEM.."

    Posted: 

    This is one badass horror from start to finish, very fresh and original and highly entertaining for a such a small time release, Luke evans plays a fantastic lead in this absolutely blood soaked crazy story, there is a good small twist near the beginning of the movie that sets a path for destruction and massacre of a group of criminals who get more than they bargain for when picking on the wrong couple to hold hostage! The movie is packed with brutal savage gore scenes and bloody deaths to satisfy any horror fan, this is a little gem of the year and certainly needs to be seen if you love this genre!!

  8.  "..COOL GRITTY THRILLER.."

    Posted: 

    This is indeed a very cool gangster thriller based on the true story of mob hitman Richard Kuklinski aka the iceman! The movie explores his life from around the moment he started up until his capture around the 80's, this man was stone cold killer and was ruthless in his methods, he was a loving family man (and who wouldn't be if you were married to Winona Ryder) and would do anything to protect them, however model American life starts to fall when he started to mess with the wrong players! the movie plays out really well with great direction and a stunning cast, Shannon is awesome as the lead, there are good part roles too for Ray Liotta, James Franco, Chris evans and of course the lovely Winona Ryder!! This is a great movie all round and well worth checking out, it will certainly keep you gripped until the end.

  10.  "..VERY ORIGINAL AND TWISTED.."

    Posted: 

    This movie is just brilliant, a very good story that's twisted in every way, for a small straight to Blu-ray and DVD film I wasn't sure what to expect but im so glad I watched this, its a very gradual building thriller that's starts off slow and gets deeper and darker as it goes on leaving you wondering what its building too, but its worth the wait with a great twist and bloody finale! its good at building the thrills and jumps that most horrors would throw at you, great cast too, the lead actress is great, this is really worth checking out its a gem of a film and is very underrated, an original psychological thriller that should not be missed, unfortunately there are no features which is a shame, the Blu-ray comes in a cool slim line case like the USA cases, region B 87mins.
