    North Sea Hijack

    ★★★★

    "Both my parents died tragically in childbirth."

    North Sea Hijack pretty much begins with Lloyds of London realising that oil rigs are a potential target for terrorists or criminals and that they bloody well ought to have a plan in place just in case.

    So they bring in ffolkes, a man with his own private band of marines, who figures out how one would go about hijacking a rig and from there, how he would foil such a plan.

    fflokes,…

    2001: A Space Odyssey

    ★★★★★

    Happy birthday to 2001, yes, it's been 50 years since it went on general release. Just think on that for a moment, 50 years. Think about how far cinema had come in the half century before Kubrick made this film and how far it's come in that same amount of time since then and you realise, if you hadn't already, what an extraordinary achievement it is.

    Now I'm sure there are people out there who like to decry the love…

    MannVanuary 2022 - The Noirer They Come

    Robert Ryan has turned up in all sorts of roles over the years, as cowboys, soldiers, cops and crooks, and I'm happy to accept him playing all those characters, but as a handyman? Something doesn't seem right, a humble, quiet, methodical handyman? Until he opens up a cupboard in the house where he's working, and there is the corpse of the lady owner. And suddenly he runs, out of the house, down the…

    The Strange Affair of Uncle Harry

    ★★★

    MannVanuary 2022 - The Noirer They Come

    Harry (George Sanders), nicknamed Uncle Harry by the youngsters at the factory where he works, is clearly a confirmed bachelor, destined to live out his days working to support his two sisters, widowed Hester, and younger, spoiled Lettie (Geraldine Fitzgerald), who spends her days feigning various unspecified illnesses.

    But that existence, for everyone, is set to be turned upside down when the young and pretty Deborah (Ella Raines) comes in from the company's…

  • Beware the Slenderman

    Beware the Slenderman

    ★★★

    The story of how two pre-teens, both of whom appear to be delusional and one of whom has been diagnosed as schizophrenic attempted to murder a friend of theirs believing that they are acting under the instructions of Slenderman.

    The thing that lies at the heart of their delusion and what makes it so difficult to break is exactly the same thing that lies at the heart of religious beliefs and that is the inability of anyone to disprove the…

    007 Rank-A-Thon

    At last a realistic Bond villain, at least in terms of his aims and the method by which he's setting out to achieve it, flooding the US with a couple of tons of opium (it sounds much more charming than heroin) which will be given away for free thereby knocking out all the competition in one fell swoop. I'm not sure it would actually work out like that but it's not completely unrealistic and what's more the price…
