ToysToys (1993)
3 stars (Good Enough) It is hard to dislike even if at times it plays like a misfire. In its favour is that it is original and should, therefore, stand up to repeated viewings. Visually attractive but it could have been a tad shorter.
PossePosse (1993)
2 stars (Good Try) It looks like its made a special effort to be violent. Less would have had more effect.
DVD $14.95
Graduate, TheGraduate, The (1967)Aro Favourite
2 stars (Good Try) Hoffman's character soon begins to irritate but there is Anne Bancroft in classy form to compensate. There is one memorable line in the script from a character who works in plastics – "there is a great future in plastics". One of the better soundtracks
DVD $10, $12.50, $14.95 | Blu-Ray $19.95
Matrix, TheMatrix, The (1998)Recommended
2 stars (Good Try) Too many noisy action sequences detract from the sci–fi. The terrific casting of Hugo Weaving helps as do the special effects.
DVD $19.95 $14.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95 $24.95
Siege of the Saxons (1963)
2 stars (Good Try) Entertaining. Loved the modern hairdos of the lead characters.
Deal, TheDeal, The (2008)
2 stars (Good Try) The two leads are fine but the material is not the strongest and certainly not for 100 minutes.
DVD $24.95
6 Days6 Days (2017)
2 stars (Good Try) Although it is another hostage film there is a good cast to help things along.
DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
Ghost in the ShellGhost in the Shell (2017)
2 stars (Good Try) The highlight was the special effects.
DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95, $49.95
Julius CaesarJulius Caesar (1953)
3 stars (Good Enough) Brando overdoes it a bit but there are others in this classy cast headed by James Mason to fall back on. A good telling of the tale.
FebruaryFebruary (The Blackcoat's Daughter) (2015)
2 stars (Good Try) Much of it has been done before but it does create an atmosphere helped by the lack of lighting.
DVD $24.95
