Murder by Numbers

Sandra Bullock stars as a hard nose detective in this formula crime thriller. I had seen the first half of this last year so was keen to catch the end (not that I couldn’t work it out!). It’s a genre movie that has a couple of smart (but annoying) teenagers who think they can plan […]

John found this movie in the sale at WHSmith whilst we were doing the Costa Coffee thing and looking for stuff to spend Christmas Gift Vouchers on. The description made us both laugh so we got it. The plot follows a cheerleader who goes out with the quarterback from the football team at high school […]

Piranha

Joe Dante’s 1978 classic killer fish movie. Has a secret military base that have been breeding mutant piranha fish that are unwittingly let loose into the river network. Of course there are more people swimming and playing in the river that day than any other. I love these movies… DVD R2 Colour ***
