Star Wars: Attack of the Clones (2002) – George Lucas

  The Star Wars films continue as I delve further into George Lucas’ films thanks to the Sci-Fi Chronicles. This time it is the second instalment in the Prequel Trilogy. And while a considerable step-up from The Phantom Menace, this one is still too clunky and too digital. Jonathan Hale helps Lucas out on the…

The Wicker Man (1973)

The Devil Rides Out (1968)

Horror of Dracula (1958)
