THE HOST (2013) DIRECTOR: Andrew Niccol STARRING: Saoirse Ronan, Max Irons, Jake Abel, Chandler Canterbury, William Hurt, Diane Kruger GENRE: Sci-Fi Romance CERT: 12a I have the unenviable task of following Gemma’s great review last week for Iron Man 3, which I think is a pretty steep ask for my first go. The Host is another of Stephanie Meyers’ novels to make it to the big screen. It is set in a world which has been inhabited by aliens that survive by taking over human bodies – hence the name. They are called Souls, and…

GANGSTER SQUAD (2013) DIRECTOR: Ruben Fleisher STARRING: Ryan Gossling, Josh Brolin, Emma Stone, Sean Penn, Robert Patrick GENRE: Action, Mobster CERT: 15 REVIEWER: Gemma For a movie that looks to promise lots of action, double crossing and gun-shooting, I left the movie feeling rather unsatisfied. Don’t get me wrong, Fleisher has caught LA in the 1940′s very well and the fact that it is based on the true story of Mickey Cohans rise and fall as one of THE most vicious mobsters of his time (look here for more info),…

THE SWEENY (2012) DIRECTOR: Nick Love STARRING: Ray Winstone, Ben Drew, Damian Lewis, Hayley Atwell, Steven Mackintosh GENRE: Action, Crime CERT: 15 REVIEWER: Gemma Having seen the high thrill promising trailer when I went to see numerous films recently, I was looking forward to watching THE SWEENEY. It seemed to promise lots of car chases and action sequences, all wrapped up with a number of robberies. The film starts off with The Sweeney, a group of officers who use any means necessary to take down the criminals of London. It…

DREDD 3D (2012) DIRECTOR: Pete Travis STARRING: Karl Urban, Olivia Thrilby, Lena Headey GENRE: Comic book, Action CERT: 18 REVIEWER: Gemma After a summer of rather impressive comic book movies with the excellent The Avengers and the fantastic The Dark Knight Rises, the season finishes off with a cult favourite, DREDD or DREDD 3D to give the film its full name. This is one of the comic books that I am not over familiar with. I am aware of the comic book that the film is based on. Apart from the fact…

ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER (2012) DIRECTOR: Timur Bekmambetov STARRING: Benjamin Walker, Dominic Cooper, Rufus Sewell GENRE: Horror, Action CERT: 15 REVIEWED BY: Gemma This movie had everything going for it. It was adapted from the best selling book by Seth Graham-Smith, who also wrote the screen-play, so no chance of someone butchering the book; the director of the film Wanted, staring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy, was directing this and the Gothic God himself Tim Burton was the producer of it. So what could go wrong? Frankly a lot and…
