Tom H’s Film Reviews
867 Films have been rated or reviewed by Tom H.
- Magic Mike (2012)
- Not nearly as controversial as suggested by the media, not nearly as deep in content as suggested by the director, Magic Mike is hard to recommend for most, but it\'s not all that bad either.
$15 $7.50, $39.95 $19.95, $44.95 | Blu-Ray $39.95 $19.95
- Nitro Circus: The Movie (2012)
- A fun romp through several dangerous stunts with the Nitro guys and gals. Doesn\'t fare as well in 2D on the home TV screen, but recommended for Nitro and Jackass fans.
- DVD $24.95 | Blu-Ray $34.95
- Looper (2012)
- One of my favourite films of 2012, Looper is exciting and thought provoking – if flawed for time–travel experts, although warranting a second viewing for those who aren\'t too fussy with their time–continuum.
- Ruby Sparks (2012)
- An exjoyable film that appealed to me on several levels, but lost its way in the second half (and I won\'t do more than to mention its cliche ending). Quirky and funny, with good performances.
- DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
- Game of Thrones - Season 1 (TV Series) (2011)
- An excellent season, one of the best out there at the moment and hopefully one that will keep coming up with the goods over time. And gratuitous, yes.
$30 $20, $39.95 | Blu-Ray $49.95 $25, $120 $90
- Game of Thrones - Season 2 (TV Series) (2012)
- The first series was excellent, although the second seemed to lose its way a little. Here\'s hoping the third gets us back on track!
$30 $22.50, $59.95 $39.95 | Blu-Ray $49.95 $25
- Cyrus (2010)
- Other than a disappointing ending, Cyrus is funny and touching in equal measure. There may be few laugh–out–loud moments, but Cyrus is an indie comedy that is well worth renting.
- DVD $29.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95
- Hanna (2011)
- Hanna is Run Lola Run with more violence, more compelling characters, and yet a less lovable end result. Excellent soundtrack and breathless pace.
- Men in Black 3 (2012)
- MIB3 is very entertaining, and surprisingly more intelligent than I had expected. An excellent follow–up to the original MIB (let\'s just forget that the second was ever made shall we). Look out for Jermaine\'s surprise performance!
- DVD $39.95 | Blu-Ray $44.95, $54.95
- Five-Year Engagement, The (2012)
- A funny, albeit ultimately predictable, rom–com with the classic Apatow humour. Not as good as Bridesmaids, but a good title that will entertain a fairly wide audience – girls and guys included.
