    Sometimes a film is 100 per cent entertainment…That is definitely the case with “Premium Rush” written and directed by David Koepp (writer of “Spiderman” & “Mission Impossible” etc).

    This film is one big roller coaster ride…one that you’ll want to keep riding, right up to the end.

    Sometimes, a good actor can make a bad movie worth watching. Sometimes a bad actor, can make a bad film…Really unwatchable.

    Okay folks, ‘Snow White’ is back and this time, she’s mad as hell and ready to kick some butt.

    First off, I must ask…Did we really need two films this year about Miss White? Personally, I think one was too many.
