Film Review No.389: Spectre


Oh my God I’m actually reviewing a new release film…. about 10 days after release. Yeah I’m late but I couldn’t exactly not cover a James bond film. Especially after I took on the foolish task of reviewing every Bond film in the space of one month a few years back. Now, I may go into a few spoilers in this review. It’s kinda hard to not talk about certain issues or strengths of the film without going into them. So that’s your spoiler warning. Suffice to say, Spectre is a pretty solid bond film. The third best Daniel Craig film, sure, but it’s way ahead of Quantum of Solace. So, let us proceed with the somewhat spoilery review.

It was me all along!

Film Review No.388: Halloween 5 – The Revenge of Michael Myers

Halloween 5-1

So I normally get a Halloween film reviewed on October 31st. It is the logical day to do such a thing after all. This year I was a little strapped for cash and was a little late buying myself a copy of Halloween 5. I ordered it a week before Halloween. It just turns out that Zoverstocks, the seller I purchased it from on Amazon, likes to wait 3 days to dispatch and then uses super slow mail to deliver. So here we are, 3 days late, with my traditional Halloween night review of Halloween 5: The Revenge of Michael Myers. Click the link below yo!

Michael goes on a date.

Film Review No.387: Lost Soul – The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau

Lost Soul-1

If you’ve ever seen the films I pick out for my milestone reviews you’ll be aware that I have a bit of a love for really bad movies. A particular kind of really bad movie. The ones that are joyfully bad made with pure passion or batshit insanity. I’ve never reviewed the 1996 Island of Dr. Moreau but it would fall into the batshit insane category of bad movie. The reason for this is because the film was made under batshit insane conditions by a number of batshit insane people. Lost Soul is a documentary about the making of that film and man… you will not be ready for how crazy this film’s production got. I think, after watching this film, this may be the most nightmarish production I’ve ever heard of. So, for me rambling about how mental the whole story behind The Island of Dr. Moreau is, click the link below.

Fuck Val Kilmer

Film Review No.386: The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1

Hunger Games Mockingjay Part 1-1

Would you look at that. I’m all up to date on them Hunger Games films what the teens like to watch and stuff. Maybe I’ll even go see part 2 in the cinema. It’s been a bit of a rocky ride. I really liked the first film, despite it’s lack of originality, but man I wasn’t keen on Catching Fire. The film… not the act of catching fire itself. I felt like the second film was entirely pointless as nothing really happens. It was essentially another Hunger games event with people saying Katniss has inspired rebellion without showing rebellion or even her developing to a point where she grows into her role as a figurehead for the movement. So, as I found the previous films to be diametrically opposed in quality, what did I think of the first half of Mockingjay? Click my link below to read my words about it.

Like, Mockingjays aren’t a real thing. This film’s title is nonsense.

Film Review No.385: Nightcrawler


Yeah, I know. It’s been, like, two weeks since my last review. I haven’t had much chance to watch films recently, what with Mad Max and Metal gear Solid V releasing in the same week. Thanks for that games publishers. Except Konami. FucKonami. Anyway, I got around to watching that Nightcrawler film everyone was raving about last year. I’m so behind the times. Why are you even reading this? Anyway, below is what I thought of this damn fine and mostly exceptional film. Ermm… I guess that sentence was also my thoughts on it… Click the link… please?


Film Review No.384: Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome 3

Well here we are. The last Mad Max film left for me to cover on Film Dump. Got them all done this year too. I guess that counts as a season, right? No? OK. I’m pretty glad that I did get around to covering these films. Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome I hadn’t seen for a long time. The original film is always a joy for me and God damn Fury Road was awesome. Thunderdome is the first Mad Max film I ever saw back in the 80s as a wee lad. Around then Mad Max was still a huge deal. Mel Gibson was a huge star beloved by all. One of those things can still be said today at least. So, how has Beyond Thunderdome aged? Lets find out shall we?

Two men enter, One man leaves… is probably the beginning of a joke or something.

Film Review No.383: Mad Max 2 – The Road Warrior

Mad Max 2 The Road Warrior 3

Been a bit slow on the reviews recently. Apologies for that. Been away and had all sorts of video related Youtubey stuff taking up my time. That said, I did purchase 3 films with the intent of getting some actual interesting films to review on here. The first was Terminator 2, which I reviewed a couple of weeks back before this slight hiatus. Today it’s the second film in the form of Mad Max 2: The Road Warrior. If you’ve been reading this site for a while you’ll probably know that I’m a bit of a nerd for Mad Max films. After this one I’ll only have Beyond Thunderdome left to cover, which I hope to get done before that Mad Max game is released next week. So, let’s get on with it shall we?
