Fish Tank (DVD, 2010)

Fish Tank (DVD, 2010)

Gritty Realism!!

*Fish Tank is the story of a 15 year old girl living on a rough estate in Essex. She uses dance as a form of escapism. When her potential step father shows an interest it starts a strange relationship between the two. *Fis...h Tank is extremely hard hitting and at times even quite horrific. But this is very realistic and the story is told in a very convincing way. Their are a lot of issues affecting the youth in the UK and this film tackles them head on. Sometimes this maybe a little hard hitting for some viewer's.
*In some ways the film also reminded me of a modern day & harder hitting 'Kes'. The story is similar in the sense it shows the struggle of trying to escape the girls background and the things that hold her back. Again like Kes, there isn't a lot of action but there is a great social observation.

Back To The Future Part 3 (DVD, 2005)

Great Ending To The Trilogy... Just Don't Call Me Yellow!

Following on from Part 2 Marty and Doc find themselves in the Wild West!! Okay, so the concept had worn a little thin but that doesn't prevent the film from being entertaining and fun. There's a lot of similarities to the pre...vious films with respect to plot, characters and humour. This makes a great family film and considering this is Part 3 it still stands out from the majority of other family films. Great Fun... Just Don't Call Me Yellow!!Read full review

Vicky Cristina Barcelona (DVD, 2009)

Complicated Fun!

*In Spain a Spanish Artist meets 2 American woman and invites them back to his villa. The 2 ladies fall for the man in their own ways. When the mans highly strung ex wife turns up things become even more more complicated! All... round entertaining film. More of a Rom-Com than a chick-flick. Good fun.Read full review
