THE X FILES SEASON 6 BOXSET

Review By Paul Mount, 4 out of 5 Season Six of THE X FILES was a turning point for the long-running, ground-breaking series created by surfer boy Chris Carter. After five years trudging around the woodlands of Vancouver (generally carrying umbrellas because of the appalling weather conditions), the show upped sticks and decamped to the […]

Straight-to-video horror ain? usually my thing but MAY came highly recommended from various sources and?ell, a review copy? a review copy, right?

DOCTOR WHO: SPEARHEAD FROM SPACE

Review By Liam O brien, 4 out of 5 “An alien who travels through time and space- in a police box?” DOCTOR WHO is all about (for most people) the abiding memories- everyone remembers, if nothing else, a the pivotal moment where, if for just a second, the show is something that anyone, anywhere can […]




EIGHT LEGGED FREAKS

Review By Paul Mount, 3.5 out of 5 Ellory Elkayem’s affectionate homage to all those classic 1950’s mutated monster B-Movies (the best of which, THEM, is referenced here) is a bright and breezy fun romp which thrills but never chills and is an inoffensive way of wasting 95 minutes. And that’s the problem. EIGHT-LEGGED FREAKS’ […]




STAR WARS EPISODE TWO: ATTACK OF THE CLONES

Review By LIAM O’BRIEN, 4 out of 5 I will be the most powerful Jedi in the Galaxy….. Ahhh, Christmas. Time for family, friends, and that really nasty mulled wine stuff. Oh and of course, the obligatory wave of summer blockbusters released on shiny disc. Although, this year, the game has changed a little. The […]




HULK

Review By Liam O Brien, 1 out of 5 ?ou’re making me angry. You wouldn’t like me when I’m angry.? On the whole, summer 2003 was ok. We had gems like RELOADED or PIRATES, and even 2FAST2FURIOUS was hair brained fun. But, call it what you like- tragedy, drama, Ang Lee? attempt to inject art […]




ANGEL SEASON 3 BOXSET

Review By Paul Mount, 4.5 out of 5 ANGEL. To many it’s just BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER’s impudent offspring, the show which stands forever in the shadow of its bigger, spikier sister. To others it’s a dark, grim tale of the quest for redemption, a story much darker and visceral that the eternally sunny antics […]
