Escape-Plan-2013-Movie-schwarzenegger_stallone-banner

SYNOPSIS: When a structural-security authority finds himself set up and incarcerated in the world’s most secret and secure prison, he has to use his skills to escape with help from the inside. REVIEW: If this last year has been any indication, it’s that Sylvester Stallone is indeed back with plenty of energy to take on a smattering of new roles.

Film Review: Jurassic Park 3D (1993/2013)

Jurassic-Park-3D-1993-Movie-1

SYNOPSIS: During a preview tour, a theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok. REVIEW: I remember the excitement I felt when I bought tickets to see “JURASSIC PARK” for the first time in 1993. Back then it was THE movie to see, with effects like no film before it. Steven Spielberg (with the help of some cutting edge CGI) made the world believe that dinosaurs could … Continue reading

Film Review: Dead Calm (1989)

DeadCalm-1989-Movie-1

SYNOPSIS: A mass-murderer kidnaps and seduces a young woman after leaving her husband to die on the vessel whose crew he’s just slaughtered. REVIEW: The title to this 1989 suspense/thriller from director Philip Noyce is fairly spot-on; Dead Calm is, in large part, a lot of floating at sea without much terror at all. Sure, there are ripples of horror, and the big storm hits towards the finale when things really get rocky, but for … Continue reading

Film Review: Omen III: The Final Conflict (1981)

omen-III-The-Final-Conflict-1981-movie-1

SYNOPSIS: The now adult Antichrist plots to eliminate his future divine opponent while a cabal of monks plot to stop him. REVIEW: 1981 saw the third installment of the Omen series and perhaps (although a matter of opinion) it is probably the best film of the three. Directed by Graham Baker, the gripping demonic tale takes place years after Damien; the Omen II ended, and begins when a construction worker finds the seven daggers of … Continue reading

event-horizon-movie-1997-4

SYNOPSIS: A rescue crew investigates a spaceship that disappeared into a black hole and has now returned…with someone or something new on-board. REVIEW: It’s quite possible that Event Horizon may be among one of the most chilling films ever created. Then again the backlash from critics and sci fi horror fans complaining of plot holes, fragmented storylines and a genre confusion may beg to differ on my analysis. One thing is for sure, …when you … Continue reading
