‘Suffer Little Children’ Review

suffer little children

I’m a fan of history as well as movies, so I like to watch films from many eras. In the UK the Video Nasty movies are a treasure trove of films that range from the bad to good. To see what made them so controversial can be an obsession especially for somebody like me. This…

‘Deliver Us (Liberami)’ Review

Deliver Us

Whether you are religious or not you’ll have heard of Exorcism and the role it plays in the Catholic Church. While it has made its way into popular culture with the likes of The Exorcist it is still a practice that is used to “rid” people of demons. Deliver Us is a documentary that gives…

‘Loot’ Review

Loot

Loot has been released in a double-bill with Entertaining Mr Sloane, both getting a digitally restored release.

Now that Gerald’s Game has arrived on Netflix, can he continue his success. Gerald’s Game is the…

‘Dunkirk (1958)’ Review – A Classic Worth Revisiting

Dunkirk

While this year’s Dunkirk brought an intensity to the screen conveying the horrors of what was experienced by the soldiers at Dunkirk, there was a version of the film that was released in 1958. Now digitally restored and available on DVD and Blu-ray, it is an interesting look at how the true events affected many…

‘King Arthur: Legend of the Sword’ Review

King Arthur: Legend of the Sword

The first movie I saw directed by Guy Ritchie was Lock, Stock, and Two Smoking Barrels. When I started watching King Arthur: Legend of the Sword, little did I know that I’d find myself comparing the gangster feel of the two. In many ways this represents how confusing a movie it can be, especially when…
