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 ...

Valentine Ever After

Valentine Ever After (2016)   3/53/53/53/53/5

88 mins     Comedy, Drama, Romance, TV Movie      

If you weren't already aware "Valentine Ever After" is a Hallmark movie and once you know that then the familiarity of that plotline should not be much of a surprise. Stripped down the basic bones we have the city girl with a...

Valentine's Kiss

Valentine's Kiss (2015)   2/52/52/52/52/5

180 mins     Drama, Romance, TV Movie      

I always try to think of something someone else might have watched which compares well to the movie I am reviewing and as I watched the TV movie/ TV mini-series "Valentine's Kiss" I kept think of the BBC series "Doctor Foster...

Valhalla Rising

Valhalla Rising (2009)   2/52/52/52/52/5

93 mins     Adventure , Drama, Fantasy      

If I had known then what I know now I would not have watched "Valhalla Rising", not because it is a bad movie as in fact it is a well made movie but because it is not my sort of movie. On paper it seemed to be with this story...


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...


Valkyrie (2008)   4/54/54/54/54/5

121 mins     Drama, Thriller, War      

I wonder how many people watched "Valkyrie" with just the basic knowledge that there was a failed assassination attempt on Hitler's life. I wonder how many with more knowledge had watched one of the previous movies which had ...

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...

The Valley of Light

The Valley of Light (2007)   3/53/53/53/53/5

97 mins     Drama, TV Movie      

On the right day "The Valley of Light", a Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, is a sunlit, sentimental drama about two lonely people brought together through the mysteries of life and find they help fill the holes in each others liv...

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...

Vampire in Brooklyn

Vampire in Brooklyn (1995)   2/52/52/52/52/5

100 mins     Comedy, Fantasy, Horror      

Vampire in Brooklyn: Eddie Murphy is the vampire who came to Brooklyn to find a mate...


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 ...


Vamps (2012)   2/52/52/52/52/5

92 mins     Comedy, Horror, Romance      

There are those who will tell you that the worst vampire movie is "Twilight" but I would like to offer up "Vamps" a movie which seems little more than a spoof movie but not a good one. I am actually kind of at a loss for word...

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: Freshman Year

Van Wilder: Freshman Year (2009)   3/53/53/53/53/5

98 mins     Comedy      

If you were to rank all the "Van Wilder" movies "Van Wilder: Freshman Year" would come in second place behind "Van Wilder: Party Liaison" but ahead of "Van Wilder 2: The Rise of Taj". And that is a surprise as I honestly expe...

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...

Vanilla Sky

Vanilla Sky (2001)   3/53/53/53/53/5

136 mins     Family, Mystery, Romance      

Let me describe a few scenes in "Vanilla Sky". The first one is a fantastic sequence where after waking up David heads out on to the streets to find it completely abandoned, it is a dream sequence which leads to him waking up...
