Welcome to my blog

 

My name is Neil and this is my Universe...

Collectively known as the Neilyverse. I love watching films and Tv drama series. My favourites push the boundaries of the medium, others just follow a test audiences idea of what should happen. I prefer lots of WTF moments or genuine touching moments that creep up on you. I think i expect too much sometimes lol.

An aboriginal detective returns from the city to his home town in the outback to look for a missing girl and finds a hot bed of lawlessness and corruption. A dark crime thriller full of rich characters in this original fight for justice. 6.0/10

Based in World War 2 this espionage drama revolves around an American spy who marries a French resistance fighter after a dangerous mission. Unfortunately he must question her loyalty when his superiors hear that she is not who she says she is. A quite enjoyable war time romp. 6.1/10

A stream of mysterious murders are carried out in a small region of rural South Korea, and it is up to the bumbling lazy sergeant to discover the cause. Unfortunately for him the problem comes to visit him and the love of his life, his daughter. At two and ¾ hours this film was too long. The far east school of acting was in full effect with grown men screaming like girls at the slightest problem. Towards the end I just wanted it to finish as it seemed never ending and not releasing clues to what was going on fast enough. 5.0/10

Tom Hanks runs about Rome and the Vatican trying to stop an apocalypse whilst being pursued by subversive element. Probably the weakest of the three? Dan Brown films. It felt like “National Treasure” does Rome. Bit of historic art-chase-bit of history-chase Etc. The concussion that Hanks got at the start of the film seemed to go on too long to. I swear I was having visions at one point. 5.0/10

A bunch of young adults decide to break into a blind man’s house as he is rumoured to have cash inside. Unfortunately he is not such an easy mark for them. A great horror/thriller that is claustrophobic and well directed. A good collection of twists keep the heart and mind racing. 7.0/10

A man who is a maths savant is hired by the world’s criminals to keep their books. The US treasury try to track him down as he discovers a discrepancy in one of his legit clients with an in house female book keeper which puts them both in danger. Unluckily for the firm he also has a more violent skill set at hand. Ben Affleck does a great job in this action film with a twist. Not quite “John Wick” in my book but well received by many. 6.9/10

I was a bit underwhelmed by Jack Reacher, whereas Jack Reacher “2” is a lot better. After a potential date with his military replacement, Jack Reacher learns that she has been arrested. Jack smells a rat and gets involved with proving her innocence. Lots of action and good pacing keep the movie flowing even if you can spot the bad guys a mile off. 6.2/10
