Movie Review: Furious 7

Movie Review: Furious 7

The Fast And The Furious franchise has never been one for quality. Furious 7 is no different. The acting is bad, the plot makes no sense, and yet its still immensely enjoyable. The plot involves the Furious crew on the run from a super assassin related to the villain of the last movie. Statham who plays the villain Deckard Shaw, is on a mission to take out the entire crew. Remember Tokyo Drift, and the death of Han? Well, Shaw is the man responsible. To be honest there is more to the plot, involving hacking, and Kurt Russell but its all just an excuse to get from one action set piece to the other. James Wan, the architect behind the Saw...

HBO Documentary Films: HOMEGROWN: THE COUNTER-TERROR DILEMMA

Overview: Terrorism made front-page headlines again in late 2015, due to events in Paris and San Bernardino, Cal. Both incidents were linked to extremists who pledged allegiance to ISIS, and proved just how difficult it is for counter-terrorist agencies to avert such threats in advance. Directed by Greg Barker (HBO’s Emmy-winning MANHUNT) and based on the upcoming book “United States of Jihad: Investigating America’s Homegrown Terrorists,” by Peter Bergen, HOMEGROWN: THE COUNTER-TERROR DILEMMA is a gripping insider’s account of the homegrown terrorist threat in America, told from the perspectives of those who helped construct our...

Movie Review: Annabelle

Movie Review: Annabelle

I don’t go much for scary movies. And I go even less for ones with creepy dolls. So of course I reviewed Annabelle. Why not? For those of you that also don’t enjoy horror or scary dolls, Annabelle is the sequel/prequel to The Conjuring. In The Conjuring, a discussion is had about a doll Annabelle that terrorized the lives of two women. Annabelle tells the story of how the doll came to be. Having not seen The Conjuring, I appreciated that I didn’t feel a lack of information or understanding.  At times with prequels, not seeing the original work creates a detriment to the film.  In this case, I was pleased to know that...

Movie Review: A Walk Among The Tombstones

Movie Review: A Walk Among The Tombstones

To those out there saying something like ‘ah well, this is just another Taken’. Rejoice my friends, Taken this is not, instead what A Walk Among The Tombstones proved to be was an incredibly dark and haunting, yet possibly predictable experience. This is a film which basked on Neeson’s talent as an observant and composed leading man and its this successful style which has been ever so present in his films in the last decade.  A Walk Among The Tombstones is based around former cop and now ‘unlicensed’ private detective Matthew Scudder (Liam Neeson) who has been asked to do a job for a local drug trafficker...
