Along with with Videodrome which you can read my review of by clicking HERE! the good people of Twitter also voted in Christine for me to watch and review. I hadn’t seen this for a long long time and although I like everyone else knew/knows the basic concept I had trouble recalling any of the film. My missus loves this film so she knew what to expect more than me when we settled down to give this classic a watch.

T2 Trainspotting (2017)

mpw-119111

So it’s taken 20 years for a sequel to come out to the amazing Trainspotting, which is quite frankly one of the greatest British films of all time. Thing is this fits with the books as there’s a big time gap between Trainspotting and the sequel book. I read a bit about this film and it seems there were mainly two types of opinions people who thought, what is the point in this film? And people who loved the nostalgia the film threw at them. Then there’s the people who thought it was decent in it’s own right but not a touch on the original. So I guess you better read to find out which camp I fall into!

Wonder Woman (2017) Review

maxresdefault

DC Comics has needed a hit since the Batman trilogy finished, Batman Vs Superman was a big disappointment for a lot of people with it’s massively slow pace and a lot of strange story decisions as well as plot holes. I quite enjoyed Suicide Squad although it’s dialogue was poor at times with it’s forced quips and smart arse comments. Superman, well those films have just sucked big time. With Justice League approaching and Marvel films continuing to produce quality films Wonder Woman needs to be a success, early critic reviews and screening opinions seem to agree it’s great.

My Life in Horror 1982 Part Two – Swamp Thing

So the good people of Twitter voted in Swamp Thing as the second winner of the 1982 poll. A comic book movie that’s not really that much of a horror, in fact lets be honest it lacks everything a horror film needs but that doesn’t mean it’s not a fun film. I had never seen it before and in today’s world of massive CGI SFX in comic films it was fun to watch something from 1982 that wasn’t as bad as I expected it to be! You can check out the other winning film from 1982 by clicking HERE!

My Life in Horror 1982 Part 1 – Poltergeist

e7fd99ed2ccba94abcab3ca54e4c8eaf

I decided to ask the good people of Twitter to vote for two films from every year I’ve aimlessly been wandering the planet. I set up two polls and I’d watch and review the winner of each from 1981 hopefully right through until the current day. I was hoping to fill the polls with either classic films, ones I’d never seen or ones I’d not watched for a long time. So far the picks were great you can read 1981 winners An American Werewolf In London and The Beyond by clicking their links! But any way now it was time to watch the first winner Poltergeist…………….

Alien Covenant (2017) Review

After seeing the trailers for this film I wasn’t that excited at all, I felt the last film was a huge let down although I didn’t think it was as bad as some people did. With some time to spare before a comedy show me and the missus decided we might as well give this a go at the cinema. Being as Alien was a horror and this film has some horror elements I thought I may as well review it so here it is…..

The Adventures of Brisco County, Jr.

CULT FACTION

This sci-fi/western show ran for 27 episodes on Fox from 1993-1994.  It starred the always entertaining actor, Bruce Campbell as Brisco County, Jr. Who is the unusually named character you might ask? Brisco is a Harvard educated ex lawyer turned bounty hunter.

Much like The Wild Wild Westbefore it, Brisco took place in the 1800s during the days of the transcontinental railroad and burgeoning scientific inventions. Another appealing factor was the humorous elements. After the death of Brisco’s esteemed father, (R. Lee Ermey) he decides to become a bounty hunter so that he can take down the man responsible for his father’s death.

The deliciously menacing character actor, Billy Drago plays County’s nemesis and his father’s murderer, John Bly. On his quest for justice, Brisco is joined by Socrates Poole (Christian Clemenson), a lawyer hired to be the liaison between Brisco and the industrialists that want Bly captured. He…
