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 (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 (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...

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...

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 (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 (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 (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...

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 (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...


Gaslight (1940)   4/54/54/54/54/5

84 mins     Thriller      

For those who consider remakes a modern blight on the world of cinema should look at Patrick Hamilton's play "Gaslight" which he wrote in 1938. In 1940 it was made in to a movie of the same name yet only 4 years later it was ...


Gattaca (1997)   3/53/53/53/53/5

106 mins     Sci-Fi, Thriller      

Starring Jude Law, Uma Thurman and Ethan Hawke "Gattaca" is one of the most ingenious and thought provoking movies that I have watched in a long time. In our world, where cloning and genetic engineering is becoming a huge rea...

The Gauntlet

The Gauntlet (1977)   3/53/53/53/53/5

109 mins     Action , Comedy, Crime      

Before Bruce Willis took Mos Def on a bus ride in "16 Blocks" or Robert De Niro and Charles Grodin dodged bullets and boarded trains in "Midnight Run" there was Clint Eastwood and Sondra Locke going from Vegas to Phoenix in "...
