Dick Tracy (1990) – Warren Beatty

It’s been a long time since I sat down to watch this film, it may be since it first came out, or at least when it first hit video. I remember wanting to really get into this one when it first came out, I wanted it to be the next big summer blockbuster. So did…

Cliffhanger (1993) – Renny Harlin

Somehow I feel this actioner from the early 90s doesn’t get enough love. In fact I think it can honestly be looked at and said it has improved with age, while some 90s action flicks should be better left forgotten. Directed by Renny Harlin, who had two big successes already at the time, Nightmare on…

Beverly Hills Cop II (1987) Tony Scott

Eddie Murphy returned to the character of Axel Foley in 1987’s follow-up to his box office smash Beverly Hills Cop. This time around Tony Scott settled into the director’s chair to guide Foley on his next adventure, and while the film was fun, and recognisably Foley, it now had Scott’s signature visual style of saturated…

Beverly Hills Cop (1984) – Martin Brest

Man, do I remember the first time I saw this movie. I was twelve going on thirteen, and not only was this one of the first soundtracks (on cassette) I bought with my own cash once our family had moved to Bermuda, it was also the movie that really taught me how to swear. Quite…

Jason Bourne (2016) – Paul Greengrass

Director Paul Greengrass got the band back together for the fourth Bourne sequel, bringing Matt Damon’s turn at Robert Ludlum’s iconic character another shot at the big screen. And while there’s some cool ideas at work in the story, when the plot makes it ‘personal’ for Bourne to get him involved in the narrative, the…

Peninsula (2020) – Sang-ho Yeon

I remember seeing Train to Busan back in 2016, at my fave film fest, Toronto After Dark, and was excited to see it just from the buzz around it at the festival. I was completely wowed,and have since recommended it constantly. I loved what Yeon did with the film, the way the story played out,…

DK Canada’s Monsters in the Movies brings me to the end of their chapter on Atomic Mutations with this delightful and so bad it’s enjoyable film starring Roddy Pipper, Sandahl Bergman and William Smith… Hell Comes to Frogtown. A decade after humanity has been almost completely wiped out after a planet shattering nuclear war, a…
