Plenty (1985)   3/53/53/53/53/5

124 mins     Drama      

"Plenty" is about this, no it is about that, no you are both wrong it is about this. That was the conversation I over heard between a group of movie friends discussing the 1985 movie "Plenty" starring Meryl Streep. Now at tha...

The Golden Child

The Golden Child (1986)   3/53/53/53/53/5

94 mins     Action , Adventure , Comedy      

The thing about "The Golden Child" is that if you approach it expecting a mystical adventure movie first and a comedy second you are going to end up disappointed. Because in reality "The Golden Child" is a comedy and one whic...

White Mischief

White Mischief (1987)   3/53/53/53/53/5

107 mins     Crime, Drama, Romance      

There are a variety of startling things about "White Mischief", there is a brief but early appearance from Hugh Grant, there is the depiction of the swinging Happy Valley set in Kenya where bed hopping and drug taking was par...

Alien 3

Alien 3 (1992)   3/53/53/53/53/5

114 mins     Action , Sci-Fi, Thriller      

"Alien" was brilliant and "Aliens" was its equal if not better, bucking the trend of sequels usually being poor, but then came "Alien 3" and simply it's not brilliant and nowhere close to being in the same league as its prede...

Last Action Hero

Last Action Hero (1993)   3/53/53/53/53/5

130 mins     Action , Adventure , Comedy      

I once read a review of "Last Action Hero" where the critic was disappointed because it sucked as an action movie, which immediately made me question whether the critic missed the point. You see "Last Action Hero" is actually...

Michael Collins

Michael Collins (1996)   3/53/53/53/53/5

133 mins     Biography, Drama, Thriller      

I've mentioned before that I was born in the early 1970s and as a Brit I have clear memories involving the conflict in Ireland and the various acts of the IRA. But as I was young I had no real interest in what was going on an...

Hilary and Jackie

Hilary and Jackie (1998)   4/54/54/54/54/5

121 mins     Biography, Drama      

As a child I remember when Jacqueline du Pré died because all of a sudden there was footage of this long haired woman playing Cello with such gusto that it is a wonder she didn't end up breaking her cello. It was until...

Gosford Park

Gosford Park (2001)   3/53/53/53/53/5

137 mins     Drama, Mystery      

As a rule I try to avoid these types of movies as I am not a fan of this sort of period drama where you have the well to do sitting around talking posh and acting pretentious. But then "Gosford Park" not only features a ridic...

Starter for 10

Starter for 10 (2006)   3/53/53/53/53/5

92 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

For 10 points, what is a fun but obvious movie? Answer, "Starter for 10". Here we have a movie which in fairness works; the humour of 80s academia interwoven with the portrayal of academic snobbery on "University Challenge" c...

The Contractor

The Contractor (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

105 mins     Action , Drama      

There was a time when seeing Wesley Snipes name attached to a movie meant that you would get something big, be it a big action movie or a big drama, although it didn't necessary mean they were good. Sadly that doesn't seem to...

Paris Connection

Paris Connection (2010)   1/51/51/51/51/5

90 mins     Mystery, Romance      

Jackie Collins has sold over 500 million copies of her books so she certainly has a following but I wonder how many of those would be impressed with the adaptation of "Paris Connections" into a movie. I have never read the no...

Your Highness

Your Highness (2011)   2/52/52/52/52/5

102 mins     Adventure , Comedy, Fantasy      

There was a time when a movie dominated by a plethora of cock jokes infused with drug jokes would have been enough to make it work. But I guess those times have passed and watching "Your Highness" ended up a slog of cock joke...

Justin and the Knights of Valour

Justin and the Knights of Valour (2013)   3/53/53/53/53/5

90 mins     Adventure , Animation, Family      

I can't believe it's not Disney or Dreamworks or what ever studio it is now who does all the animations. That was the thought which kept running through my mind as I watched "Justin and the Knights of Valour". Whilst that is ...

The Imitation Game

The Imitation Game (2014)   4/54/54/54/54/5

114 mins     Biography, Drama, Thriller      

Whilst many have gone wild about Benedict Cumberbatch in recent years I am not one who has jumped on the Cumberbatch band wagon. But after watch "The Imitation Game" I have to say that it is one of those performances which de...

Dracula Untold
