STAR TREK V: THE FINAL FRONTIER


1989 DIRECTOR: William Shatner May contain spoilers! Without a doubt, the weakest of the Star Trek movies, as well as the only one to be directed by the star himself, William Shatner (Captain Kirk). Unlike the previous two films, III & IV, which were both directed by his co-star the late Leonard Nimoy (Spock), this…

ALICE IN WONDERLAND (1903)


1903 DIRECTOR: Percy Stow & Cecil Hepworth FIRST EVER FILM VERSION OF ALICE IN WONDERLAND Painstakingly restored by the BFI (British Film Institute) from a severely damaged print, this is still in poor condition, but for the those interested in taking a look at a small piece of movie history, this is still quite watchable. But there is…

BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN: DAWN OF JUSTICE TRAILER #3


As the latest trailer for Zack Snyder’s second foray into the new DC Universe hits the internet yesterday, I can not help but feel a little disappointment. This is the first real example of why this summer blockbuster has been moved to the March release slot, one reserved for films that may of may not…

’71


2014 DIRECTOR: Yann Demange May contain spoilers! Films affect people in different ways. Horror films generally leave me cold, hence why I am not an huge fan of the genre as a whole. I seem to be able to separate myself from the events on the screen and therefore I have a difficult time being…

FILM OF THE MONTH ~ NOVEMBER 2015


What a month. Having been off work for 6 weeks since mid October, I’ve managed to get through over 40 movies from my must see list over the years, all detailed in yesterdays post (6 Weeks, 60 Years Of Movies…). But as I only use compiled review posts as a back up if I’ve not…

EARTH VS. THE FLYING SAUCERS


Original Black & White Version – 1956 Colourised Version – 1956/2007 DIRECTOR: Fred F. Sears May contain spoilers! Why haven’t I seen this before? Well, the snob in me probably dismissed the film outright with a title like this but what was I thinking? I love classic sci-fi but have not really seen enough. It…

THE HUNGER GAMES: MOCKINGJAY PARTS 1 & 2


Parts 1 & 2 – 2014 & 2015 (3D) DIRECTOR: Francis Lawrence May contain spoilers! The Hunger Games (2012) and Catching Fire (2013) were both bold, ambitious and genre warping movies, both proving that you can make a genre film within a genre, rather than just a  simple box ticking exercise. The tone of the…

FIFTY SHADES OF GREY


2015 “STINKER!” DIRECTOR: Sam Taylor-Johnson Contains spoilers! Wow. My expectations were low, but still encouraged by the behind the scene stories that the script and direction had improved upon the E L James source novel, one which I must admit, I have not read but heard plenty about. But all I can say is how bad…

nEoFILM @ SIX


Today marks the Sixth Anniversary of nEoFILM, a personal project to served two key purposes. The first was simply to set up a workable system and format to write film reviews around my busy work and home schedules. The second to was to build the nEoFILM brand as it were with no money and no real…

TERMINATOR: GENISYS 3D (REVISED)


2015 DIRECTOR: Alan Taylor May contain spoilers! 31 years later and the Terminator is till terminating. Yep, afraid so. Like the 1984 T-800, this terminator simply will not die. Arnie is back after having all but bailed out of the last attempted Terminator franchise opener,Terminator Salvation (2009), busy being the Governor of California and all that,…

WIDESCREEN WEEKEND ~ BRADFORD 15th – 18th OCTOBER 2015
