FBI agent Frank Castle enrages a powerful gangland kingpin when a gunfight accidentally causes the death of the mobster's son. The crime boss retaliates by wiping out Castle's entire family, but the lawman reinvents himself as a vigilante, acting as judge, jury and executioner to the underworld.

Chain Reaction- (1996)

5.3/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

With a script that's hazy on explanation, this thriller survives thanks to the pell-mell action that papers over the weak links in the convoluted plot. Watching Keanu Reeves play a scientist seeking to make cheap power out of water is a little hard to take. But after he and fellow researcher Rachel Weisz go on the run from mysterious saboteurs after cracking the formula, The Fugitive director Andrew Davis's muddled suspense tale finally takes flight. Don't think, just panic, as Reeves cashes in on his Speed hero persona in a running, jumping slice of breathless escapism.

04:10 - 06:00 - Thu 25/10/18 - Talking Pictures
5.5/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

Cheap science fiction gets scraped from the bottom of a very deep barrel in this unwatchable feature. Inhabitants of the planet Zeta are being found dead in the tinsel-and-plastic universe of 2002. Astronauts Gordon Devol and Jacqueline Ray discover the murders are caused by a blood-drinking rock creature. Even TV's Lost in Space didn't look this bad or showcase such lousy acting and not-so-special effects.

Sherlock Holmes and the Secret Weapon- (1942)
11:00 - 12:25 - Thu 25/10/18 - Film 4
6.3/10 Stars

Full Profile vCal (.vcs) vCal (.ics)

The Nazis stood no chance once they knew they were up against the Allies' own secret weapon - Sherlock Holmes and Dr Watson. This modernised, morale-boosting story draws only a fraction of the plot from Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's source story The Dancing Men, as Holmes and Watson search for a unique bombsight that could determine the outcome of the Second World War. Basil Rathbone and Nigel Bruce give their customary performances as Baker Street's finest, while Lionel Atwill is believably malevolent as baleful baddie Moriarty. The film was the first in the series to be directed by Roy William Neill, who must have been doing something right - he went on to make ten more before his death in 1946.

In this handsome-looking but lethargic western, special agent Randolph Scott goes undercover to trap the Reno brothers, one of the earliest bands of outlaws who committed the first train hold-up in 1866. The brothers - including Frank (Forrest Tucker), Sim (J Carrol Naish) and John (Myron Healey) - also have an attractive sister Laura (Mala Powers), which naturally complicates matters for Scott. The rage at dawn refers to the historically accurate conclusion in which a lynch mob plucks the Renos from jail.

Teri Polo and Andrew McCarthy learn the well-worn lesson that opposites attract in this pleasant romantic drama. In an unlikely yet engaging scenario, Polo plays a budding New York photographer who visits Wyoming for a blind-date weekend with a widowed rancher (McCarthy). Predictably, their chalk-and-cheese personalities slowly find common ground - but not before a dose of mutual dislike and poignant soul-searching, brought about by McCarthy's preoccupation with his wife's death. Polo and McCarthy never really stretch themselves, but their performances are charming and there's excellent use of the region's handsome scenery.

Although denied military service during the Second World War, John Wayne did his fair share of fighting on screen in flag-waving propaganda movies like this one, which is based on a true story. He stars as the boss of a construction company who orders his workers to take up arms against the invading Japanese. It's the one where Wayne's hot-headedness causes his buddy's death, leading him to demolish all the enemy in sight, blasting his way to glory. Well, Borden Chase's screenplay worked then, and it almost works now, and if you're a fan of the Duke, give it a try. By the way, Wayne's leading lady is the young Susan Hayward.

The creators of Napoleon Dynamite, Jared and Jerusha Hess, here team up with offbeat comedian Jack Black for another endearing slice of comic eccentricity. Ignacio (Black) is an orphan who has been raised by friars at a Mexican monastery, but leads a double life as the masked wrestler Nacho to raise cash for his monastery orphans and (hopefully) impress the lovely Sister Encarnación (Ana de la Reguera). Black, with his stretchy outfits, insane fighting flair and outrageous accent, makes a highly appealing, sweetly goofy underdog, and he's well complemented by deadpan Héctor Jiménez as his tag-team sidekick. The Latin pop soundtrack is as delightful as the gentle slapstick quirkiness. While this is not an all-out laugh-riot, a passing interest in the sport of lucha libre (freestyle wrestling) and the culturally iconic Santo movies will definitely enhance your enjoyment of this Rocky-in-multi-coloured-spandex.
