WHAT I LIKED: There are lots of films out there about the danger of indulging in the vices of wild sex, hard drugs or extreme wealth, but what makes Paul Thomas Anderson's 'Boogie Nights' such a successful one is that it largely keeps a handle on... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: There's no getting away from the fact that 'Olympus Has Fallen' is utterly preposterous and blindly patriotic to a sickening extent, but director Antoine Fuqua always seems to have the ability to make the ridiculous thoroughly grippi... Read the full review »

WHAT I LIKED: The Equalizer is - first and foremost - a good character-study which plays the cards of its intriguing central character close to the chest - slowly unraveling a mysterious man as the film progresses. We begin in his apartment where... Read the full review »
