No Man's Land

Worth A Look

(Edit) 30/12/2005

An enjoyable film. No big names or big plot lines but the plot that unfolds symbolises the wider tragedy and farce of conflict and international politics.

Definitely worth a look.

The Terminal

Great Character movie

(Edit) 28/04/2005

I loved this film. Hanks unusually plays an eastern european. He excels in the film; the plot is not fast paced but has a few unpredictable twists. I thoroughly reccommend it as an uplifting and enjoyable watch.

The Forgotten

Gripping, thought provoking - watch it!

(Edit) 28/04/2005

I really liked the basic premise of the film. It builds very well, feeds the paranoia factor and ultimately leaves you thinking deeply.

Definitely worth a watch. I may buy it.

A Few Good Men

Legal drama that goes beyond formula

(Edit) 26/06/2005

If you are a fan of Grisham et al you will enjoy this. Cruise plays a carefree plea bargaining lawyer, who ends up defening 2 junior marines, and uncover corruption.

The chemistry between the 3 heroes is good, it takes a different approach to the love/sex interest, and builds to a superb crescendo with some twists in the plot. One of my favourites.

A Time to Kill

Vintage Grisham

(Edit) 28/03/2005

If you liked The Firm or The Pelican Brief you will appreciate the John Grisham style. This film tackles issues of race through the "lawyer up against the system" genre which is Grisham's forte.

Well above average film. Not quite in the firm / pelican brief's league but well worth a look

JFK

Top Drawer conspiracy theory

(Edit) 28/03/2005

Costner excels as the investigator seeking to get to the truth behind JFK's assasination. His world is torn apart by his obsessive quest for justice. A david v goliath tale, and one of my all time favourites.

Lost in Translation

Lost in production, too!

(Edit) 28/03/2005

Atmospheric yes; acclaimed, yes...Arty, yes... but ultimately most people will be put off by the fact that there is no plot. Nothing actually happens. At all. Which makes 2 hours rather a long time.
