So much so, I cried too. Wedding Crashers could have been a shocking buddy movie, but the writing, the comedic performances and the simple concept, make this my favorite comedy of the year. 17 Jul 2005 09:00:00 +0100 http://www.apj.co.uk/reviews/film-review-wedding-crashers.asp Batman Begins Oh my god, what a good movie this this. It could have been a banana skin for Warner Bros., but director Christopher Nolan has produced a fresh take on an old subject and done it extraordinarily well. 14 Jun 2005 09:00:00 +0100 film-review-batman-begins.asp Film and UK Premiere : Sin City Can't say I knew what to expect from this film, but I certainly got a feast for the eyes and I'm glad I didn't eat too much before the opening credits. This film, and I quote director Robert Rodriguez, has "Tits, arse, guns, castration, amputation, beheading and lots of fighting". 23 May 2005 09:00:00 +0100 http://www.apj.co.uk/reviews/film-and-uk-premiere-review-sin-city.asp The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy I liked this film; I'm a big fan, a bit of a dork you might say. I can quote lines from the books which I read nearly 20 years ago. This isn't quite the funniest movie of the year, but it is worthwhile and enjoyable. 20 Apr 2005 09:00:00 +0100 http://www.apj.co.uk/reviews/review-hitchhikers-guide-to-the-galaxy.asp Van Helsing</B> Van Helsing is a romp through the world of Vlad the Impaler (the guy Dracula was based upon), Dracula, Frankenstien and other horror characters of that era. Enjoyable throughout, a couple of moments that make you jump and geography that would fail any high school exam. 04 May 2004 09:00:00 +0100 Book Review. Market Forces by Richard Morgan I thought the book started slowly, until I realised I was over 100 pages in. So close to today and yet not far from the future of Mad Max. This is post apocalypse without the nuclear war. Austerity measures mean cars are prohibitively expensive to own, yet alone run, so the rich wide-boys of city financing use the deserted motorways as a battlefield over promotions and contract bids to run countries and war campaigns. Richard Morgan continues his run of producing readable hard-core (science) fiction. 04 Apr 2004 09:00:00 +0100
