Vacancy (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

85 mins     Horror, Thriller      

"Vacancy" looks like your typical teen slasher horror as we have a couple ending up stranded in the middle of nowhere heading to a creepy motel and in doing so tipping it's hat to Hitchcock's "Psycho". But then "Vacancy" is n...

Vacancy 2: The First Cut

Vacancy 2: The First Cut (2008)   3/53/53/53/53/5

86 mins     Horror, Thriller      

The original "Vacancy" was a pleasant surprise of a movie as it ended up more than just a typical slasher movie; it had style and some ingenuity as well as atmosphere. But like so many movies it was self contained and didn't ...


Valiant (2005)   3/53/53/53/53/5

76 mins     Adventure , Animation, Comedy      

This may not sound much praise but children's animation "Valiant" gets one thing right, at 76 minutes it is the right length. Sadly the right length does not make up for the fact that it feels like a factory line movie, put t...

The Valley of Gwangi

The Valley of Gwangi (1969)   3/53/53/53/53/5

96 mins     Sci-Fi, Thriller, Western      

Sometimes as a movie reviewer you just have to forget everything you judge a movie by and enjoy something which is basically nonsense. "The Valley of Gwangi" is one such movie as we have cowboys finding a forgotten world wher...

Vampire Bats

Vampire Bats (2005)   2/52/52/52/52/5

90 mins     Horror, TV Movie      

Made for TV horror movies, especially those surrounding a town plagued by deadly creatures are rarely any good which is why my expectations were nil when I sat down to watch "Vampire Bats". It's probably why I am semi pleasan...


Vampires (1998)   3/53/53/53/53/5

108 mins     Action , Horror, Thriller      

You mention the name John Carpenter and the movie "Halloween" comes to mind, maybe "Christine" and of course "The Thing", three great horror movies which had edge of your seat atmosphere. The thing is that if you then watch J...

Vampires Suck

Vampires Suck (2010)   1/51/51/51/51/5

82 mins     Comedy      

The success of a good spoof movie is not just lampooning the movies it is trying to mock but also bring in enough other humour to appeal to those who might not have seen the movies in question. That is one of the major reason...

Vampires: Los Muertos

Vampires: Los Muertos (2002)   2/52/52/52/52/5

93 mins     Action , Horror, Thriller      

I surprisingly liked John Carpenter's "Vampires", I didn't think it was great but it had some beer & pizza night merit. I certainly didn't expect to feel the same about the sequel "Vampires: Los Muertos" because basically it ...

Van Helsing

Van Helsing (2004)   2/52/52/52/52/5

126 mins     Action , Adventure , Drama, Fantasy, Mystery, Thriller      

So to be up front, before watching Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale in "Van Helsing" I had no clue as to who Van Helsing was and didn't really care. This may explain why many of the gripes which other people have had with ôVa...

Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj

Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

97 mins     Comedy      

Tits and cock jokes alone do not make a good movie and sadly in the case of "Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj" that's all there really is. Okay bit of a lie as we have that old favourite of two University houses being rivals, a ...

Van Wilder: Party Liaison

Van Wilder: Party Liaison (2002)   3/53/53/53/53/5

92 mins     Comedy, Romance      

"Van Wilder: Party Liaison" starring Ryan Reynolds and Tara Reid is firmly made in the same style as the "American Pie" and "Road Trip" movies, with a mixture of gross out and sexual comedy, romance as well as coming of age c...

Vanishing Point

Vanishing Point (1971)   4/54/54/54/54/5

106 mins     Action , Thriller      

I was born in 1972 a year after "Vanishing Point" was released and only saw it for the first time in the early 90s when times were vastly different to how they were when it was originally released. I've watched it a few more ...

Vantage Point

Vantage Point (2008)   2/52/52/52/52/5

86 mins     Drama, Thriller      

For a movie which starts so well "Vantage Point" soon becomes a tedious, monotonous and rather run of the mill thriller with a gimmick, which is showing the same sequence of events from various different perspectives, a bit l...

Varian's War

Varian's War (2001)   3/53/53/53/53/5

121 mins     Drama, TV Movie, War      

"Varian's War" is the sort of movie which can blow you away because of the true story it tells. And the story of Varian Fry is worthy telling having set up an organisation which ended up helping over 2000 people escape from N...

Varsity Blues

Varsity Blues (1999)   3/53/53/53/53/5

106 mins     Drama, Romance, Sport      

"Varsity Blues" with it's storyline of high school and Friday night football wouldn't feel out of place in one of the teen TV dramas which come and go every few years. And to be honest it is no surprise as Dawson Creek's own ...

Vegas Baby

Vegas Baby (2006)   2/52/52/52/52/5

91 mins     Comedy      

Also known as "Bachelor Party Vegas" there is no way you can watch "Vegas Baby" not knowing what to expect, come on 5 guys in Vegas for a Batchelor weekend, we are not talking subtle, sweet drama here. And "Vegas Baby" lived ...

The Velvet Touch

The Velvet Touch (1948)   3/53/53/53/53/5

100 mins     Drama, Thriller      

Whilst "The Velvet Touch" starts with the accidental murder of Gordon the entire first half of the movie is a flashback, focusing on how things got so heated between Valerie and Gordon. It is interesting enough as we have var...

Vengeance Valley

Vengeance Valley (1951)   3/53/53/53/53/5

83 mins     Western      

"Vengeance Valley" has many of the elements to make a very good movie, in amongst many recognizable names and faces there is Burt Lancaster, John Ireland and Joanne Dru and it features a Cain and Abel style storyline with jea...


Venus (2006)   4/54/54/54/54/5

95 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance      

When you watch a lot of movies it's quite easy to become depressed by the often shallow, unoriginal stories which end up filling our screens, especially when it comes to the genre of romantic comedy. But then you watch someth...

Vera Cruz

Vera Cruz (1954)   4/54/54/54/54/5

94 mins     Western      

With a cast lead by Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster there is plenty which is great about 50s western "Vera Cruz" and by no means is it a run of the mill western. The basic storyline for a start which sees a hero and anti-hero ...
