Borat: Cultural Learnings Of America For Make Benefit Glorious Nation Of Kazakhstan – Quickie Review

Event Horizon – Quickie Review

This is essentially Hellraiser In Space. Incredibly haunting tone throughout the movie. One of the few movies that consistently gives me the willies. Sam Neil is deliciously insane. Watch the found footage of the captain’s video log in slo-mo, it’s horrifying.

Remember The Titans – Quickie Review

My all-time favourite football film. Terrific and inspiring performance by Washington with a strong supporting ensemble. I’ve seen this a countless number of times.
