Brewster's Millions

Light on laughs

(Edit) 07/01/2021

With Richard Pryor and John Candy staring I had high hopes for this 1985 telling Brewster's Millions, unfortunately even with two comedy greats in the film it is light on laughs and has an all to predictable outcome. Not that I went in expecting lots of twists and turns and high drama I had expected this to be better. That isn't to say there are a few light chuckles to be had. I would save your rental unless you're a die hard Pryor fan.

I rented the blu ray which had some nice definition and good sound quality although there clearly hadn't been any love put into restoring the film as there are many scratches, dirt and grime on the picture.

The Possession of Hannah Grace

Put tab A into slot B possession film.

(Edit) 24/01/2020

The Possession of Hannah Grace is not particularly originally or inventive however it is quite workman like, it has all of the usual cliques that come with a film like this, people not believing the main character when something starts to happen, dodgy CCTV at crucial moments, ex on the scene through concern of their former lover.

However I did still find this enjoyable and well worth a rent, it's not reinventing the wheel on possession films and there is little in the way of tension. If you leave your brain at the door when you press play you may well be pleasantly surprised.

A solid 3.5/5

Insidious: Chapter 3

Unoriginal 3rd chapter

(Edit) 27/12/2017

This film falls into the all to predictable formula of this kind of horror film, which goes along the lines of quite, quite, bang. While this is certainly better than the second film, it still leaves a lot to be desired, the characters aren't especially interesting, "twists" are sign posted early in the film. If you can leave your brain at the door and get on board with a silly formulaic horror film then there is some merit in this film. It's certainly not a horror classic of the best that director Leigh Whannell has produced, but just about worth a rent.
