Jurassic Park

Man and dinosaur never walked the earth at the same time - let's face it, dinosaurs became extinct about 65 million years ago and man is relatively new to the planet. Yet man likes to mess with nature and try to recreate things that should just be left alone....

Ghostbusters 2

Ah Ghostbusters… these will always be a favourite of mine so I’m going to always be a little biased. I remember seeing this film in the cinema and loving every minute of it. But I was only 10 years old. Does it still hold up now? I would say yes, but maybe not so much when compared to the original...

A Shot in the Dark

The only (proper) Inspector Clouseau film to not reference the Pink Panther in any way shape or form, and to be honest, will always be the best of the bunch. This is Peter Sellers at his comedic best....

Daffy Duck – Duck Dodgers and the 24½th century

This is one of the most famous of all the Looney Tune cartoons ever made, and for me one of the funniest. It's the one that I remember Marvin the Martian from the most. Daffy Duck is so much fun as well....

Iconic Scenes – T-Rex Encounter (Jurassic Park)

This scene has been so perfectly done that it still to this day hasn't been matched. It has a perfect use of a mixture of animatronics and CGI, unlike today where everything would have been CGI. This is what truly has made the special effects stand out....

How the Star Wars Prequels story could have been improved

The way Star Wars prequels are right now worked in some points but were lacking in others. I personally found them reasonably enjoyable, bearing in mind I wasn't expecting Oscar winning performances.
