G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

118 mins     Action , Adventure , Sci-Fi      

As a Brit my childhood was dominated by Action Man and from what I understand was in some ways the equivalent of the G.I. Joe toy. In some ways that probably helped when watching "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra" as I had no expe...

Galaxy Quest

Galaxy Quest (1999)   4/54/54/54/54/5

102 mins     Action , Comedy, Sci-Fi      

I watched "Galaxy Quest" a few years after it first came out and whilst amusing it left no real lasting impression but on re-watching it more recently I was surprised by how brilliant it is, yes you did hear me use the word b...

Gallipoli

Gallipoli (1981)   4/54/54/54/54/5

110 mins     Adventure , Drama, War      

I'm a bit lost having watched "Gallipoli", not something I like to admit, but it is not the movie I was anticipating because whilst a war movie the actual war element is only the third act, before that we have 2 acts of male ...

Gambit

Gambit (1966)   4/54/54/54/54/5

109 mins     Comedy, Crime      

To be honest I have never been one who is crazy about Michael Caine, there is no doubt that he starred in some great movies but sometimes I felt they were overrated. Fortunately "Gambit" is not one of them as not only does it...

Gambit

Gambit (2012)   3/53/53/53/53/5

89 mins     Comedy, Crime      

Michael Caine and Shirley MacLaine versus Colin Firth and Cameron Diaz. Okay so yes this 2012 movie called "Gambit" is not a direct remake of the 1966 movie but it runs to a similar theme and when it comes down to it Caine an...

Gambler's Choice

Gambler's Choice (1944)   3/53/53/53/53/5

66 mins     Crime, Drama      

The chances are that if you are going to watch "Gambler's Choice" you are a fan of old movies and as such there is a reasonable chance you will have already seen the likes of "Angels with Dirty Faces" and "Manhattan Melodrama...

Game of Death

Game of Death (2010)   2/52/52/52/52/5

98 mins     Action , Adventure , Thriller      

The chances are I would have watched "Game of Death", which is not to be mistaken with the Bruce Lee movie of the same name, anyway but as I scanned down the cast list I spotted the name Simon Rhee who as bad guy Dae Han Park...

The Game Plan

The Game Plan (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

110 mins     Comedy, Family      

"The Game Plan" is on one level enjoyable, Dwayne Johnson delivering comedy and charisma as an unexpected father works. But "The Game Plan" is also as unoriginal as they come throwing at us that exact set-up of a single man s...

The Game

The Game (1997)   3/53/53/53/53/5

128 mins     Thriller      

There is a line in "The Game" where the main character Nicholas Van Orton says "I don't really understand it myself" which pretty much sums up how I feel about "The Game" as it is one of the most confusing movies I have watch...

Gamer

Gamer (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Action , Sci-Fi      

In 1987 we had "The Running Man" with Arnold Schwarzenegger playing Ben Richards who finds himself the innocent man in a brutal game of survival broadcast to the masses. Then in 2007 we got "The Condemned" where we had a grou...

Gang in Blue

Gang in Blue (1996)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Action , Crime, Drama, TV Movie      

So "Gang in Blue" is another one of those movies which came out during the 90s which attempted to lift the lid on extremist sections of the American police force who would unjustly and brutally target racial minorities. Now I...

Gangs of New York

Gangs of New York (2002)   4/54/54/54/54/5

160 mins     Crime, Drama      

One of the most interesting things about Martin Scorsese's epic "Gangs of New York" is not that it was yet another movie he never won an Oscar for but that he originally tried to make it back in 1978. The fact that nearly a q...

Gangster

Gangster (2011)   3/53/53/53/53/5

105 mins     Crime, Drama      

In the UK this movie based on the life of real bank robber Eddie Boyd is known as just "Gangster" and to me it is a misleading title. In fact I don't think "Citizen Gangster" as it is known elsewhere is much better and certai...

Gangster No. 1

Gangster No. 1 (2001)   3/53/53/53/53/5

103 mins     Crime, Drama, Thriller      

Let me tell you the problems which "Gangster No. 1" has and it has more than one. Firstly the tale of a young man who rises up the ranks to be the top gangster is one which is familiar and whilst you can dress it up, change t...

Garage

Garage (2007)   4/54/54/54/54/5

85 mins     Drama      

Within minutes of "Garage" starting it is heartbreaking because of Pat Shortt's pitch perfect portrayal of Josie because everyone has met a Josie at some point in their life. And before anything happens we are already piecing...

Garage Sale Mystery

Garage Sale Mystery (2013)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

So for those who decide to give "Garage Sale Mystery" a look at because they have read mention of yard sales and Ebay be warned as it has very little to do with the movie. In fact the few scenes of Jennifer going to a yard sa...

Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters

Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters (2014)   3/53/53/53/53/5

86 mins     Crime, Mystery, TV Movie      

It is rare that I find myself lost for words but as I attempt to review "Garage Sale Mystery: All That Glitters" I am just that, lost for words. The thing is that the lack of words isn't because I have just watched something ...

The Garden of Redemption

The Garden of Redemption (1997)   2/52/52/52/52/5

95 mins     Drama, TV Movie, War      

I could walk into a Hollywood office and pitch "The Garden of Redemption" as an examination of religious beliefs during a time of war when even those who preach the good word are tested by the brutality which they see around ...

Garfield

Garfield (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5

80 mins     Animation, Comedy, Family      

I've always liked reading the Garfield shorts that features in newspapers; the sarcastic wit of the fat feline with attitude is usually clever but most importantly funny. But when it comes to "Garfield" the movie the cleverne...

Garfield 2

Garfield 2 (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

78 mins     Comedy, Family      

When I reviewed the first "Garfield" movie I wasn't impressed and felt that the character worked best in short bursts not for a solid 80 minutes. I guess the studios didn't think so because we got "Garfield 2" or "Garfield: A...
