12 Men of Christmas (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Comedy, Romance, TV Movie      

Let me just find my "broken record" speech as sadly there was a time when those who made Christmas TV movies did so in an almost factory line manner, seeming to give little thought to story originality and focused more on the...

12 Rounds

108 mins     Action , Crime, Thriller      

Let me put some facts down for you; "12 Rounds" not only stars wrestler John Cena but is produced by WWE Studios and if that wasn't enough it is directed by one time action main man Renny Harlin. Now anyone who chooses to wat...

17 Again

17 Again (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

To put it simply "17 Again" is just another take on your traditional body swap movie and in many ways is similar to "13 Going on 30" although working in reverse with an adult become a 17 year old again. As such we get plenty ...

158 mins     Action , Adventure , Disaster, Drama, Sci-Fi, Thriller      

There was a time when a disaster movie would be about a sinking ship, a doomed plane or a burning building but in recent years it appears that Hollywood is not content just to have this scale of drama, they want bigger, they ...

31 North 62 East

31 North 62 East (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

99 mins     Thriller      

In the opening scene of "31 North 62 East" we meet the Prime Minister played by John Rhys-Davies and seems like it was based on former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott but played well over the top so that for not one minut...

44 Inch Chest

44 Inch Chest (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Crime, Drama      

Ray Winstone is the sort of actor who could make reading the telephone directory and intense experience, he can deliver a range of emotion be it through a look or a slight change of tone, he can be aggressive and frightening ...

500 Days of Summer

500 Days of Summer (2009)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

Being different doesn't automatically make a movie good but it can make it more interesting than the norm which is what I would say "500 Days of Summer" is. Here we have a romantic comedy which isn't you're run of the mill ro...

A Boy Called Dad

A Boy Called Dad (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

80 mins     Drama      

"A Boy Called Dad" is a curious movie, not because it is quirky or off-beat but because it is surprisingly compelling. Now that may not sound surprising except for the fact that its story never really goes anywhere in fact I ...

A Dangerous Man

A Dangerous Man (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

94 mins     Crime, Thriller      

Loud, fast, violent and full of cliches, I could be talking about pretty much any of Steven Seagal's direct to video movies but in this case I am on about "A Dangerous Man". This is a movie which typifies Seagal's more recent...

A Dog Named Christmas

A Dog Named Christmas (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

95 mins     Drama, Family, TV Movie      

I guess I'm not a dog person or maybe I am not a Bruce Greenwood person, although maybe there was something else but for some reason "A Dog Named Christmas" didn't really blow me away. Don't get me wrong as it was a charming ...

91 mins     Crime, Mystery, Thriller, TV Movie      

Pleasantly surprised, it is one of those rare feelings you get when you watch a TV movie and didn't find it laughable but it is the feeling I got when I watched "A Nanny's Secret". Now in fairness "A Nanny's Secret" is not so...

A Perfect Getaway

A Perfect Getaway (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Action , Horror      

What a fun bit of adult horror, I say adult horror because "A Perfect Getaway" plays out like your typical teen horror as we have a couple going hiking on a Hawaiian island only to learn that there have been murders and they ...

A Serious Man

A Serious Man (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

106 mins     Comedy, Drama      

I have a question for you? Do certain directors receive praise for their movies not because they are good but because critics who watch a lot of movies are grateful when they come across a movie which is different to the norm...

A Shine of Rainbows

A Shine of Rainbows (2009)   4/54/54/54/54/5

101 mins     Drama, Family      

Full of Irish charm that is what "A Shine of Rainbows" is, a sweet family drama drenched in the beauty and charm of The Emerald Isle. It's more than just that, it is simple, inoffensive family drama with echoes of those old D...

A Single Man

A Single Man (2009)   4/54/54/54/54/5

99 mins     Drama      

Now "A Single Man" is a fascinating movie, take the characters as we have a gay man who is heartbroken, it is heartbreak which is the focus not the fact that he is homosexual. Then there is the fact that this was fashion desi...

A Sister's Secret

A Sister's Secret (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

96 mins     Drama, Mystery, Thriller, TV Movie      

When ever it comes to TV movies I tend to be quite forgiving, I never expect great production, fancy direction, original ideas or great characters but even when making allowances some TV movies just don't work. And that bring...

Acceptance

Acceptance (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Comedy, TV Movie      

Please what ever you do don't mistakenly watch "Acceptance" thinking you are going to watch "Accepted", one is fun the other is a mess and the mess is "Acceptance". Here we have a comedy of sorts about teens going through the...
