Steen takes spy thriller over steamy hype job

I enjoyed this one. It’s certainly bloody, but it has a charming lightness amongst the crazy world of killing and mayhem…

Steen: Double header movie review

Mortdecai "truly awful" while American Sniper good for is special effects.

Steen: Not much action in Mockingjay 1

There are a few fairly boring scenes, but Hunger Games—Mockingjay Part 1 a good two hours and will keep its loyal fan base.

Steen: The November Man

Pierce Brosnan still worth ogling, in gritty spy film The November Man.

Steen: 100 Foot Journey could be best of the summer

There are stories within stories here as life’s layers blend and the characters weave the many facets of their hopes and dreams…

Steen: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes

What is quite incredible is the technology used to bring this to the screen and I can’t begin to fathom what filming must have consisted of.

Steen: Jolie so wooden you risk splinters

While there are a couple of charming moments, this is not a show with any depth.

Steen: Latest X-Men delves into the characters

This X-Men has a lot of suspense, drama, surprises, and two hours of action, time travel and shape-shifting.

Steen: No spectacles required

This film likely won’t change any minds…but it may start a dialogue…

Steen: Costner does his thing in Draft Day

This show will appeal to men and woman as it’s about sacrifice, healing, negotiations, surprises and making tough choices…

Steen: Movie Review: Dog tale for light relief

The four of us who were at Sherman and Mr. Peabody last Saturday's late show, clearly had nothing much else to do.

Steen: Pine not totally believable as Ryan

The danger inherent in the film is that the plot doesn’t match our reality so I was not ‘on the edge of my seat.’

Steen: Scenery and Hobbit action

This second in the movie trilogy sees Bilbo, Thorin and the rest of continuing the journey to reclaim Erenbor from Smaug, the dragon.

Steen: Philomena a must-see

This is a story of love lost, forgiveness and never forgetting.

Steen: Latest Hunger Games has it all

Filmed in New Jersey, Hawaii, Georgia, and Los Angeles, the scenery is incredible.

Steen: Get counselling if you go see The Counselor

How come every time there’s a restaurant scene, everyone in the restaurant is drop-dead gorgeous?

Steen: Sadly, another movie dud drops

The Family isn’t worth your time or your money, though the young Blakes perform well.

Steen: Riddick-ulous waste of time, not even a ‘best line’

Diesel is his bulked up best physically, but if you think this is a ‘must see,’ you couldn’t be more wrong.

Steen: Wolverine good action, limp love scenes

The Wolverine is an action-packed (great chase on the train scene) couple of hours.

Steen: Red 2 is an entertaining romp

Most of the old cast is back with new faces giving interesting content and adding to the fun.
