  1.  'CURIOSITY CAN BE FATAL'

    Posted: 

    four years after a double murder, the 'jacobson' house have new neighbours, 'elissa' ( jennifer lawrence---'hunger games' ) and her mother.
    they learn that the son of the murder victims lives next door, 'ryan jacobson' who's sister 'carrie-anne' is believed to have killed both parents.
    'elissa' befriends 'ryan' .....she will find that 'the house at the end of the street' holds many secrets most of which will be reveald by her curiosity.
    probably worth '3.5' as a rating, the film though predictable does harbour one or two tense moments.

  2.  'CAN THE FUTURE BE CHANGED ?

    Posted: 

    a criminal organisation in 2074 use 'time travel' to send targets back 30 years to be executed and disposed of.
    'joe' ( 2044 ) is an efficient assassin dealing with the future's rejects.
    when 'joe's' future being is sent back to be killed, 'joe' of now i has been assigned to deal with it, can 'joe' complete his mission to kill his future self when 'joe' of the future knows the moves allready.
    'joe' of the future who's wife has been killed by the organisation seeks to change the course of history by killing the child that is destined to affect his future.
    different.............well worth a spin

  3.  'HUMANITY'S FIGHT CONTINUES'

    Posted: 

    the war against the virus stricken majority continues.
    'alice' is being held at 'umbrella's' underwater research facility.
    friends are trying to reach her, 'alice' is needed on the outside.
    the facility will present 'alice' and her friends images that are often not real.............
    to escape they must fight against the computer controlled enviroment.
    an action packed and visual treat.

  4.  THE TRUTH WILLOUT'

    Posted: 

    alcohol dependant,drug taking pilot 'whip whitaker' takes charge of doomed flight 227.
    the plane takes off in the wake of a violent storm, when the plane levels off above the storm second-in-command takes charge of the flight while 'captain whitaker' sleeps off his hangover.
    suddenly a catestrophic incident occurs causing the plane to nose dive out of control, 'captain whitaker' miraculously lands the plane, four passengers and two flight crew perish, ninty six survive...........truly a miracle.
    however the captain becomes the subject of an intense investigation despite his heroics in landing the sticken craft.
    was the crash his fault, did drink and drugs contribute ?
    great performance from 'denzel washington'
    the flight sequence was indeed very tense, you sure wouldn't wanna watch this a few days prior to catching a flight........would be a bit like watching 'titanic' whilst on a cruise.............
    worth a spin.

  5.  'LOW BUDGET SLEAZE'

    Posted: 

    typical of the 'shock' fodder that was being churned out during the 70's and early 80's in which acting was a secondary consideration.

  6.  'LIFE IS LIKE A BOX OF CHOCOLATES'

    Posted: 

    'forrest' is a simple soul seeing the world through rose coloured spectacles so to speak.
    growing up he only ever had the one friend 'jenny'
    with the exception of friend 'jenny' he was seen as ''different''
    little changed in this respect during adulthood......;but.........this is 'forrest's' story as told to strangers who seemed to listen.
    a stunning performance from 'tom hanks' star of many great movies such as 'big' 'saving private ryan' and 'castaway' tp name just a few.
    this is a ''beautiful'' film.

  7.  'POLITIC'S AS WE KNOW IT ?

    Posted: 

    a send-up look at a u.s congress election campaign in which 'cam brady' who has served 'north carolina' unapposed for four terms suddenly finds unlikely candidate 'marty huggins' standing against him.
    the campaign spirals out of control each candidate mounting a scathing assault on the other.
    much tongue-in-cheek and often crude humour as the character of each is publicly torn appart, each seeking to humiliate the other.
    ( another day in the office ? )

  8.  'THE CHILL FACTOR BEING--IT'S BASED ON REAl EVENTS'

    Posted: 

    a box that should never be opened is purchased at a sale by 'clyde' at the request of 10-year old daughter 'emily' ( em )
    unbeknown to them....evil has been trapped within the box.
    'em' becomes obsessed by it's mystery, gradually what is trapped inside the box begins to take over young 'emily'
    'clyde' desperatly seeks help to save his daughter.
    the film has it's eerie moments with a certain ammount of tension.
    i'm not sure however we'll ever see a film of this type equall to the intensity of the 1973 classic 'the exorcist'
    'the possession' is however better than many efforts made since the classic's release.

  9.  'GREAT CAST' 'DISSAPOINTING SCRIPT'

    Posted: 

    'jodie foster' and 'kate winslet' are two of today's finest actresses, sadly this movie does neither justice.
    two couples get together to resolve problems arrising from an assault by one son on the others.
    the two couples drift into a verbal assault on each other.
    little in the way of humour, little in the way of entertainment.............the stars on board are worthy of better roles.

  10.  'A 'ROUGH' 'TOUGH' THRILL-RIDE'

    Posted: 

    many of us remember 'tv's' iconic series 'the sweeney' starring 'john thaw' and 'dennis waterman' with great fondness.
    you'll find this movie-version has a whole lot more in the way of 'gritty' action and a bucket full of 'attitude'
    'jack regan' heads a 'fast-response unit' -the sweeney ( flying sqad )
    he does the job his way, a shoot first and ask questions afterwards mentality.
    the team respond to a bank raid, 'regan' has been told to stand down, however he ignores the order to do so, the op' goes dreadfully wrong, 'jack' who is under investigation loses his badge and is imprisoned.
    'george carter' his partner continues the investigation however and finds a way to secure 'jack's' release............the two set about trying to conclude the outstanding issues.
    fast moving action-packed thrill-ride with some excellent car-chases along the way.
    'ray winstone' at his best ( hope they make another )
    recommended viewing.
