Had a lot of time on my hands last week ,so watched Allen's lunacy in Bananas and then bedded in with the mans take on dating in the more subtle less frantic Play It Again Sam , two films that proffered very different platforms for Allen to flaunt his comedy genius.

its 2020 and the world has recently been ravaged by dragons, discovered during some tunnelling works in London. Christian Bale and a not cool to like at the time Matthew McConaughey star in this survivors by numbers flick. the effects are so so but havent aged well 5.10

Shifty (2008) 7/10

In many ways Shifty is largely notable for the performance of Riz Ahmed, an interesting actor who is well on his way to becoming a decent British-Asian movie star. A good solid watch about a young man firmly embroiled in the suburban North London drug trade falls foul of the heavy handed locals. An old school pal, plagued by his own bad memories of the city, does his utmost to put him onto a different track. Starring Riz Ahmed, Daniel Mays, Jason Flemyng, Jay Simpson, Dannielle Brent and Francesca Annis.

The Rise (2012) 8/10

This was a well made British crime thriller which is a smart and gutsy effort bolstered by a strong cast. Basically it's about a robbery of a working men's club where a local drug dealer keeps his money supposedly committed by Harvey and his three best mate's, a good twist to the tale which certainly kept me guessing. It was entertaining to watch it all pan out. Starring Luke Treadaway, Timothy Spall, Matthew Lewis, Iwan Rheon, Neil Maskell, Vanessa Kirby and Gerard Kearns.

Don't breath

I watched this last night and I thought it was really good. Pretty scary and jumpy in parts and the way they build the tension is brilliant. Considering there isn't much talking it was really good and heartfelt.

I felt the ending was a bit rushed though
There are other survivors, wouldn't one of them have learnt about the frequency after it being over a year since it started and there were things about sand and them being blind?

Also, a shotgun killed it anyway so haven't they thought about just shooting the fuckers?

8/10.

I think this film surprised the hell out of everyone when it proved not only a financial success, but a critical one too with the film one of the best releases of 2016. I really enjoyed Don't Breathe, and i think the ending also shows it has a sequel in mind.

In which Stephen Lang has confirmed that he will be reprising his role in Don't Breathe 2. Probably might get a teaser sometime during the summer 2019?

Tony (2009) 8/10

Remarkable performance from Peter Ferdinando as Tony an unemployed eccentric serial killer. There's been many films in which serial murderers are terrifying geniuses, it's sobering to discover Tony a total loser who kills people that in a sense no one really cares about, and creeps under the official radar. Starring Peter Ferdinando, Frank Boyce, Lorenzo Camporese, Francis Pope and George Russo.


The Proposition (2005) 9/10

Quite a brutal savage western set in the Australian outback, I must say the brilliance of this movie makes it a masterpiece. Guy Pierce and all the actors fit in to their roles, the actors invest their characters with human details all the scarier because they scarcely seem human themselves. Highly recommend this electrifying gem of a western. Starring Guy Pearce, Ray Winstone, Richard Wilson, Emily Watson, Danny Huston, John Hurt and David Wenham.

The Thompsons (2012) 2/10

I only watched this movie because Elizabeth Henstridge (Agents of Shield) was in it. Ultimately only one of the characters is particularly likeable so by the time the final showdown comes around it's difficult to care who triumphs. Starring Cory Knauf, Samuel Child, Joseph McKelheer, Mackenzie Firgens, Ryan Hartwig and Elizabeth Henstridge.

Trick 'r Treat (2007) 7/10

This is a good movie and makes me think about other great gems that may be slumbering in the deep archives of studios and never see the light of day. A bit of a surprise this one. Starring Anna Paquin, Brian Cox, Dylan Baker, Leslie Bibb, Tahmoh Penikett and Moneca Delain.

Upgrade (2018) 8/10

This was great sci-fi about a man whose wife is killed during a brutal mugging that also left him paralyzed, has an experimental cure to upgrade his body and sets out to claim vengeance, could be destined to be a cult classic. Starring Logan Marshall-Green, Betty Gabriel, Harrison Gilbertson, Linda Cropper, Richard Cawthorne and Christopher Kirby.

The Reader (2008) 7/10

The film opens in post-WWII Germany with a teenage boy having a secret affair with a woman who is twice his age with a lot of secrets, who mysteriously disappears one day and the teenager is left confused and heartbroken. A decent drama movie. Starring Kate Winslet, Ralph Fiennes, David Kross, Lena Olin, Bruno Ganz and Matthias Habich.

The Heat (2013) 8/10

This was a pretty decent female buddy cop action-comedy which starred Melissa McCarthy and Sandra Bullock as a mismatched pairing of a foul-mouthed Boston cop and a condescending FBI investigator who try to take down a mobster. Quite funny and entertaining. Starring Sandra Bullock, Melissa McCarthy, Demian Bichir, Marlon Wayans, Michael Rapaport and Jane Curtin.

The Siege (1998) 7/10

One of the more surprising and intelligent films I've seen, the film is a political thriller which relies more on plot and double-crosses than explosions, which for the most part is a good idea. If your looking for action you maybe disappointed by the somewhat slow pacing and lack of big booms. But overall a very good film. Starring Denzel Washington, Annette Bening, Bruce Willis, Tony Shalhoub, Sami Bouajila and David Proval.

Annihilation (2018) 7/10

This is not an easy film to talk about. It's a movie that will have a different meaning to different viewers who are willing to engage with it. Without going into much detail i thought the ending was very frustrating, but still pretty decent with the recent wave of sci-fi films, it's one to watch out for. Starring Natalie Portman, Jennifer Jason Leigh, Gina Rodriguez, Tessa Thompson, Oscar Isaac, Tuva Novotny and Bern Collaco.

The 13th Warrior (1999) 5/10

Not too bad a film for the most part it delivers the goods. It sometimes impresses but never really soars. Starring Antonio Banderas, Diane Venora, Dennis Storhoi, Vladimir Kulich and Omar Sharif.

The Number 23 (2007) 3/10

The film is a bit of a let down by a complicated plot in which nothing really happens. The result is neither a strong psychological study of its lead character, nor a compelling edgy thriller. All ultimately very boring and a big disappointment considering those involved. Starring Jim Carey, Virginia Madsen, Logan Lerman, Rhona Mitra and Danny Huston.

The Glass Shield (1994) 6/10

The film is about a first black recruit in his squad, the rookie cop struggles to adapt to life on the force when confronted by the deep-root prejudices and corruption of his precinct. Starring Michael Boatman, Lori Petty, Erich Anderson and Thomas Babson.
