12 Angry Men [1957] ★★★★

Completely absorbing movie starring Henry Fonda as a juror who is convinced that a boy who is accused of murdering his father is completely innocent. But how will he  convince the rest of the jury, when they have no doubt in mind  that the defendant is guilty of all charges? […]

Black Friday [1940]

When a professor becomes gravely ill, his friend who also happens to be a brain specialist (Boris Karloff) attempts to save him by transplating part of the brain from an injured gangster (Bela Lugosi). The operation proves deadly as the professor’s dual personalities transform him into a Jeckyl and Hyde. […]

True Grit [1969]

I’m a huge fan of Clint Eastwood movies, but John Wayne was the real deal when it came to western flicks. “True Grit” was the only movie that won the duke an oscar, and it was a well deserved win. He plays a hard nosed and totally fearless one-eyed U.S […]

Mean Streets [1973]

The movie that started it all, putting both Martin Scorsesse and Robert De Niro on the map permanently. They later worked together on “Taxi Driver”, “The King Of Comedy”, “Raging Bull”, “Goodfellas” and finally “Casino”. “Mean Streets” is about a small time hood (Harvey Keitel) who works for […]

House Of Wax [1953]

This Island Earth [1955]

Enjoyable sci- fi movie from the 50’s is not as great as “The Day The Earth Stood Still” or “Invasion Of The Body Snatchers” but is still incredibly entertaining. A group of scientists find themselves working on a secret project, only to realise that they have in fact been recruited […]
