FILM REVIEW; THE EQUALIZER

Denzel Washington added the action star tag to his repertoire, like Liam Neeson. But, per my experience, Neeson is the one most people rave on about because of his impressive Taken debut. Washington, however, has an enviable track record of action thrillers (Man on Fire, De Ja Vu, Safe House) and the box office numbersContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; THE EQUALIZER”

FILM REVIEW; THE ROVER

Australia is well known as one of the wealthiest countries in the world and rightly so because it is has the world’s 12th-largest economy and the fifth-highest per capita income and generally a nice place with what seems to be great weather.

That is the tag placed one of our starsContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; NO GOOD DEED”

FILM REVIEW; CHEF

There’s an on-going quip in the church of Wittertainment concerning the fact that Jaws and Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy are not really about sharks and spies respectively and the same, you could say applies here. The more significantContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; CHEF”

FILM REVIEW; INTO THE STORM

I can’t say I’m a fan of the devastation disaster movies visit on cinemas goers; 2012, The Day After Tomorrow and maybe Independence Day and Daylight come to mind and no, I have not seen Twister so I won’t be making any clichéd comparisons. Into the Storm seems to be the latest entry into whatContinue reading “FILM REVIEW; INTO THE STORM”
