Non-Stop (2014) high-flying thrills

I thought this film was going to be a sort of Taken on a Plane, which honestly I wouldn’t have minded, yet this refreshingly wasn’t the case. It is as tense as Taken, but more mysterious, with the majority of the action playing out in one claustrophobic location – a plane high above the Atlantic. The debut… Continue reading Non-Stop (2014) high-flying thrills

Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010) – That about sums it up

I love trashy movies as much as the next guy, but it was honestly hard to sit through this one. I mean, there’s plenty to enjoy here, but not in the way it was intended.

The film is based on the Tony Award winning jukebox musical of the same name and, by the sounds of it, sticks pretty close to the source. The show’s creators Marshall… Continue reading Jersey Boys (2014) – Walk like a man

The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) – Enjoy your stay

What a fun and quirky film this is. Those words have become pretty synonymous with  the films of Indie auteur Wes Anderson, thanks his plethora of bizarre idiosyncrasies. With this project his style seems to have really found its place. Everything, from the production design to the acting, has gelled so well, and you get… Continue reading The Grand Budapest Hotel (2014) – Enjoy your stay
