Ninja Assassin (2009)

Back in black to attack the bad pack . . . . . . Well, this is one of the easiest reviews I have ever written in my entire life. If this movie had a more appropriate title it would have to be something like "Punchy Stabby Kill Kill Man"…

Daybreakers (2009)

It's a bleeding drought which could lead to a feeding frenzy . . . . . . The Spierig brothers follow up their enjoyable zombie debut feature, Undead, with an equally enjoyable, yet altogether different, vampire movie. A plague has…

Moonraker (1979)

It's not unusual for James Bond to save the world from masterminded-imbeciles (a fitting contradiction, wouldn't you agree?), so you shouldn't expect anything less from a mission that takes Roger Moore out into Space for, probably, the…

Amélie (2001)

Amélie (original French title: Le Fabuleux Destin d'Amélie Poulain "The Fabulous Destiny of Amélie Poulain") is a fun and beautiful film which follows the journey of Amélie Poulain (Audrey Tautou) from a life of anxious isolation, to that…

Halloween II (2009)

Kaifeck Murder (2009)

Like trying to grab a handful of fog, this is atmospheric but little else . . . . Based on an infamous unsolved murder case, I have no idea how much of this movie is steeped in reality and how much is pure fiction and I must say that the…

Life Is Hot In Cracktown (2009)

How easy it can be for life's unfortunate ones to slip between the cracks . . . . Director Buddy Giovinazzo is an amazing talent, unjustly overlooked by many fans of cinema because of his gritty, uncompromising approach just as identifiable…

Neighbor (2009)

A Hostel wannabe that missed the Train . . . . . When you're attending a screening of a horror movie and you get an introduction from a DOCTOR warning you about the content to come, telling you about people vomiting at previous screenings…

8th Wonderland (2008)

Citizens of a country with strict boarder controls . . . . 8th Wonderland, written and directed by Nicholas Alberny and Jean Mach, is a film full of good ideas executed rather poorly. The title refers to the first online "country", a place…
