Cross of Iron

Cross of Iron (1977)

I am a very sceptical movie reviewer, when ever I see that a movie is much loved I am always wary of the reasons why especially when a movie is made by a director who over the years have collected many fanboys. It is why with the numerous glowing reviews tha...

Captain Apache

Captain Apache (1971)

Have you ever heard Lee Van Cleef sing, just watch the opening credits to "Captain Apache" and you will hear him singing the title music, although in truth coolly reading the lyrics seem a more apt description. But whilst you watch those credits you can also...

Warlords of Atlantis

Warlords of Atlantis (1978)

I've always enjoyed those adventure movies which take us on journeys into the unknown, be it down a volcano to the center of the Earth or to an encounter with a legendary Sea captain aboard his submarine. But I will admit that when it comes to these movies I...

The Island at the Top of the World

The Island at the Top of the World (1974)

For a long time these 60s and 70s fantasy adventure movies passed me by, they never grabbed my attention when I was a child and it is only now that I am in my 40s I find myself with a curious fascination for these old movies. Maybe it is because I missed out...

Shanghai Joe

Shanghai Joe (1973)

"Shanghai Joe" or "The Fighting Fists of Shanghai Joe" as it is also known starts in 1880 something in St. Francisco, yes St. Francisco not San Francisco. But I was far too distracted by other things to care as a street scene featured Joe helping two kinds c...

One Damned Day at Dawn

One Damned Day at Dawn (1970)

When I stumbled across this movie it was titled "One Damned Day at Dawn" but I also discovered it being called "Django Meets Sartana". Now the idea of a spaghetti western which featured both Django and Sartana is a good one, two of the iconic characters from...

American Graffiti

American Graffiti (1973)

An American Classic, the greatest teenage movie ever made and I could go on as "American Graffiti" is held up in high esteem by so many people. Now I am not going to deny for one minute that George Lucas has crafted an entertaining movie full of young talent...

Fatal Acquittal

Fatal Acquittal (2014)

Are you busy, have you got some ironing to do, some letters to write, a meal to prepare but want something on in the background which will distract you once in a while from what you are doing. If so then by all means put on "Fatal Acquittal" because it works as bac...


Cenerentola (2011)

I will stop my synopsis there and say that "Cenerentola" is also known by the name of "Cinderella" and is an Italian version of the classic fairytale but one which has been embellished and changed in the making. Now whilst I say it is as Italian movie the version w...

Aftermath: A Long Way Home

Aftermath: A Long Way Home (2003)

I have watched quite a few movies which deal with the disturbing subject of child abuse but "Aftermath: A Long Way Home" is the first which attempts to deal with the subject of moving on, from a family trying to get back together following abuse. Now I applaud all ...


Committed (2011)

Why do people have such a negative opinion of TV movies, just because they may not have the budget or star power of big screen movies doesn't mean that they are not entertaining. That brings me to "Committed" which has this entertaining set up of a psychiatrist fin...

A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story

A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story (2006)

Here in the UK I would guess the name Gwen Araujo means a lot less than it does in America especially in Newark, California, it is a name I had never heard of before choosing to watch "A Girl Like Me: The Gwen Araujo Story". I say that because I am sure if you knew...
