The Thompsons (2012) (movie review).

Watching a movie directed by the Butcher Brothers means you are just asking for trouble and there is plenty of that in ‘The Thompsons’, the follow-up from an earlier, if somewhat more amateurish offering called ‘The Hamiltons’.

War Of The Worlds: The Final Season DVD boxset.

A very big improvement from season one, the ‘War Of The Worlds’ series was completely transformed from a rather turgid ambling affair to something that was much more sleek and interesting. The twenty episodes of season two commenced during October 1989 and offered more life, alien life that is, to the invaders. We actually get […]
