31 North 62 East

31 North 62 East (2009)

In the opening scene of "31 North 62 East" we meet the Prime Minister played by John Rhys-Davies and seems like it was based on former Deputy Prime Minister John Prescott but played well over the top so that for not one minute do you think it is a real perso...

The King's Guard (2000)

Hard Candy

Hard Candy (2005)

Let me first say I did not like David Slade's styling when it came "Hard Candy" it was just too commercial and by commercial I mean at times like one long advert. The scene where they drive from the coffee shop to Jeff's modern home has all the techniques yo...
